I had a JGC Overland 2011 white V8 5.7, 6months ago. and now I have a Laredo X 2012 black pearl full full equipped.
Having driven the 2 different engine, I can say that both engine are super good. I dont even know which one I prefer. The V6 is a lot more gaz friendly.. the V8 is smoother and more powerfull. I tow about 4200lbs.. so the V6 is just ok. I tow 3 race bikes in a 2000lbs trailer + equipement. The V6 seems more responsive than the V8, and I love the fact that its a bit lighter in the front. You can definately feel it. I had to give the Overland back to the dealer beacuse of Qudra lift issues that they couldnt fix. anyway, Im glad I have the V6 now.
so I got this black baby. first thing, I changed the grille for a altitude
Then I painted the rear chrome plate. I used Dupli Color Perfect match, and I was really impressed with the match. Its perfect:
clear coat. This is not final pics. I need to wet sand and polish it.
then I added a Mopar Brake controller for the trailer. I wanted a clean installation, so I mounted in the central consol. Just drilled a 1" hole in the back, and ran the cable though there.
1- Headlights. I have ordered TYC replacement headlights because I know I can bake-open them. I want to paint them in black and install retro-fits I was affraid of trying on my OEM.
2- Ordered Morimoto H1 mini projectors, ballast and bulbs
3- I will remove the chrome molding on the sides
4- I have the 20" chrome wheels.. Im still unsure if I will powder coat them in gloss black.. or re-sell them and get 22" SRT8 replica black chrome. I will decide later. My wheels are in perfect conditions if someone is interested.
I will also have some laredo headlights OEM for sale if interested. I will keep this thread going with my other projects. Stay tuned
