First off, I want to thank all the members for their contributions to this forum. I have been regularly monitoring this site for the past year knowing I would eventually have a WK2 of my own. I got a lot of good ideas and finally got to put some in action. Link to pics below
Picked up my 2011 new-to-me Overland a week ago and couldn't be happier. She is perfectly clean with 30K miles, fresh oil, and brand new spark plugs
First thing I did was purchase the SRT8 Vapor grill and brought it to the dealership when I went to pick up the car. They switched it out at no cost. I also got the rear brow in brilliant black and switched it out with the chrome. I ordered the version w/o the camera and pried the face plate from the mounting bracket and snapped it in to the original mount on my tailgate. This was the quickest and simplest mod I have done. The whole thing took less than 10 min. I now have a chrome Overland grill and chrome rear brow for sale.
Next came the fun stuff. I took off the side chrome mouldings and hood decal and replaced both with black lettering. Very happy with the result of both. I spent 4 hours this morning clay barring and waxing, and it is shining like a brand new ride. The previous owner put the window visors on. I was not a fan at first, but they are starting to grow on me little by little. Not sure what I will end up doing with those. Opinions welcome
Black rims and off-road tires are most likely next, but that will probably wait until the fall. I am getting ready to take it on a 10hr road trip to VA / OBX next weekend, so I will stick with the OEM for now.
