2011 Inferno Red (Now tinted)

Welp, after 2 months of extremely long nights and lots of learning on the fly, I'm pleased to present my 2011 GC Limited. It needed the front clip, some frame work and some new paint. It took over a month to get it into the frame shop/paint booth and less than 3 weeks to assemble from that point. All parts were ordered brand new from a dealership. Online crash books and the photos I found from hours of scrolling through this forum were my only resources for figuring it out- so thank you to everyone who helped me, unknowingly! Please take the time to cruise through some/all of the pics, it was a hell of a process and I'm very proud of it!

On Skyline Parkway in Duluth, MN about 8 hours before this exact road ate a vehicle because of the downpours.

Also just got her tinted to match. 20% for $55.

Makes me want to start the black out process. Here's a few pics of what I will someday turn this vehicle into (terrible quality but it is good enough)- I just needs to amass some funds first. Can't really transition slowly, I want it all to happen at once.

I would love any feedback or suggestions on my build. Thanks, this is a great community with a ridiculous amount of knowledge.

Re: My Jeep Project

Very cool. Nice work. Beautiful Grand Cherokee Limited V8/Hemi. Inferno Red is the best red color Jeep has ever offered in my opinion.

Re: My Jeep Project

Thanks. The red was NOT my first choice. In fact I told myself I would NEVER buy a red vehicle again after having driven one for the past 9 years. I also told myself I would never chrome out a car, I'm a strong believer in black makes all vehicles look better. But after finishing the project I really do think it's a beautiful color. Most importantly for me was the black leather, wood and a nav screen.

Re: My Jeep Project

Wow that looked like a lot of work. Very nice job bringing that wrecked Grand Cherokee back to life. The only thing I'm not a fan of are those bull bar things. Other than that, beautiful. Congrats on the purchase and incredible build.

Re: My Jeep Project

Congrats. One of the most amazing posts here. Interesting that the front was sheered off. Was it hit by a train?
