Thanks, I am considering it. I'm also taking in the original rear brow to have painted along with my mirror caps, both Stone White. Might see which I like better before tinting the tails. If I decide on the white brow i'll probably leave them untinted.

Thanks! I actually get a lot more looks in the Jeep than I did in my ex modified 2002 BMW M3...go figure. Glad I could help you make the decision!

Re: Stone White GC Overland w/ some mods

Wow. Very nice. How did you get to paint the inner mesh of the grill?

I didn't. Just swapped the outer black grill from the altitude. The mesh on the Overland is black originally.

You could probably just take it off and spray it yourself. Plasti-dip or some self etching primer and spray paint. Doesnt need to be perfect since its not really a focal point when you are looking at it.

Re: Stone White GC Overland w/ some mods

Very nice looking ride... What is the best way to go about getting the SRT wheels and powdercoating them black?

I have a 2011 Laredo in black and looking for those wheels as well!

Sweet ride

The ones I have are the replicas. They are all over e-bay and I believe one of the sponsors oewheelsllc has them. I got mine from eastcoast tires shipped for $700.

Re: Stone White GC Overland w/ some mods

Added a couple new pics from todays off road adventure. Unfortunately no action shots. The QL came in handy a couple times coming over some drop offs and ruts! The 20s with the Rocky Mountains worked extremely well and my first time off-roading was a success.

The tires are Falken Rocky Mountain ATS in 285/50/20. Got a great deal from discount tire and reviews have been very favorable.

Re: Stone White GC Overland w/ some mods

Jeep looks great! A few questions if you don't mind . . .

Did you not have to pull off your front bumper to swap out the grille? I've never had a truck before that required the entire removal of the front bumper to swap grilles but all the posts on here seem to lean that way.

How hard was it to remove your chrome mirror caps? That's next on my list.

Didn't the removal of the side trim leave behind holes?

Lastly, what is the Trim Stick stuff you mention to aid in removing the rear brow?
