What do you use to apply it? I'm looking at Adams mostly because like I mentioned, the Armor All just splatters. And then its applicator sucks. Fell apart after only 3 uses, which was about 1/4 of the bottle content.

Chemical guys VRP dressing is what you want. It's also water based so it will never stain your paint or wheel wells (if for whatever reason you over apply it) I've been using this for a few years now and it's literally the best dressing I have ever used. It can easily last for 2-3 weeks (even after rain).

The vrt won't ever splatter but doesn't give u that super shine, it just gives u that dark/rich look of new tires. I apply it with any kind of foam pad. Adams also makes "tire shine" which will give u that high gloss shine but will splatter a bit down ur car

I actually really like the original chrome trim on your Jeep. Billet is the only color it looks good with.

I noticed that you switched over to black lugs with your new rims. Looks really sharp.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Can you post some side shots of your truck and the wheels. I have the same setup but in gunmetal. I'm considering going a little darker and with a gloss coat or maybe black. My wheels look small in diameter compared to yours. Keep up the good work as you inspire my changes.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Picked up a aFe Momentum GT Pro Dry S to dress up the engine bay. I've stated intakes are unnecessary on the 3.6 application in the past but the Momentum Gt looked like it was engineered well so decided to give it a shot.
I installed it last weekend and left town shortly after so my wife has more seat time with it then myself. She's not one to comment on my mods but she did voluntary say that the Jeep felt like it had more pep. I had it out on the highway last night and it does sound more menacing.
I don't think I'm gaining much if anything at all from this intake except a noise maker but it does look and sound nice.

That's the first intake I've seen that looks like it belongs there. The bends match the contours of the engine cover and the air box looks factory. Nice choice. May I ask where you purchased it?

It's the same price on all sites but AFE does have a $50 rebate form on their site. Bought mine through AutoAnything but it shipped directly from AFE.

Interested in your opinion on how the ride quality is with mixed shocks. When I had my front Bilsteins put on mine it raised the front. After seeing yours, am considering putting the stock shocks back on up front.
I know you just put yours on, but am looking for longer-term findings as time goes on.

Thanks man
