* the king's 2014 st summit build *

This is where I plan on keeping all my info up to date for my new (to me) 2014 Summit that I just picked up on Friday. White with dark brown interior.

It's currently at the paint shop now, painting all lower plastic/chrome, door handle/mirrors, roof rack white to match. All grilles, fogs, window trim, rear skid plate gloss black.

Also being de-badged except for black JEEP badge on rear hatch.

On order waiting to be shipped:
- 22x10 WK1 Gloss black replicas
- 285/45/22 Toyo Proxes STII
- SRT tail lights

Will take some pics when it comes back from the paint shop, then it will go into the shop to have wheels mounted and balanced, as well as front windows tinted to match the rear windows.

Here are some pics of my ride

Looks great stock. I'm sure the wheels will look good.
You're having the door handles/mirrors painted? How will they paint chrome?

Re: * the king's 2014 st summit build *

Nice looking Summit! I did some similar things and had my lower skirts paint matched white. That alone was a HUGE improvement in looks, but after realizing how much stuff needed to be changed or painted to get the look of a stock High Altitude, I decided it would just be easier to buy the High Altitude lol. In other words, I took the easy way out haha. Don't forget to find yourself a set of the black SRT headlights to match everything else!
Keep us up to date with pics on your build!

Thanks

I will follow up with body shop but I believe they are sanding all the chrome, then prime and paint.

Yeah it's quite a bit of stuff but I found a killer deal on the Summit and couldn't pass it up. Plus I'm getting to customize it exactly how I want which is always more fun!

Re: * the king's 2014 st summit build *

Here are some pictures from the shop. It should be done tomorrow! My wheels came in Tuesday and my Toyo Proxy STII should be here today. I should have them on by mid-week next week at the latest.

On a side note, if anyone is looking for Factory Reproduction WK1 replicas, I bought mine from Jeep Parts, Jeep Accessories for Wrangler, CJ, Cherokee - Quadratec. I ordered on Saturday and I had them by Tuesday! And they have great prices and FREE SHIPPING!

Thanks! Are you going to go with black or black chrome? 3M wrap is always an option if you don't want to paint. I didn't understand why they kept the chrome around the doors on the HA and didn't make it black chrome like the rest of the vehicle.

Yeah I definitely wont be having it painted, I will have it wrapped in gloss black. Local shop quoted me $200 for the job.
They didn't come out with the gloss black trim until now, and even the SRT has chrome trim with exception to the "Night" edition. It is what it is. Doesn't look bad, but I think the black will look a lot cooler, atleast on this model.

Re: * the king's 2014 st summit build *

She's supposed to be finished today and I will be picking her up tomorrow Pics will follow shortly after.

SRT tail lamps should be here early next week and I'm going to hopefully get her in the shop Thursday to install wheels and tires. After that it will off to the tint shop to get the front two windows done.
