I don’t know if I would consider this much of a “BUILD” as I really don’t have a lot of huge mods planned but I do enjoy looking at other threads like this so hopefully you will to.
I apologize if its TOO detailed or I show too much. Trust me, I left out quite a few even more minor things.

Had 3 Miles on it.
(Sorry for the horrible pic, My son had turned a filter on.)
Officially, The Jeep is the wife’s vehicle. My two primary vehicles are a:
2005 Dodge Magnum R/T AWD:
& 2006 SRT6 Crossfire:
Both fairly well modified but this is a Jeep Forum so let’s get back to why you are here.
Within the first 2 hours I had installed the BT Catch Can (I realize it needs a good re-polish, not a job I have had time to tackle yet...):
The “Objects in the rear view are losing” decal:
& the “Jeep” Door Striker Covers:
The wife also found these on Etsy and fell in love, so we installed the Key Fobs into their own Leather covers...
Once home, I immediately installed some safety & first aid equipment. A Fire Extinguisher, emergency glass break hammer, blankets, emergency road cones, Jumper Cables, etc....
Since it’s the wife’s daily driver and also the family truckster on weekends, better to be safe than sorry…
Glass Break Hammer installed under driver seat:
And I love how well the fire extinguisher fits in the factory trunk foam with very little modification…
I then loaded up a 64GB SD card with every sing on every phone or tablet or media device in the home with still plenty of room left!
Then I hid those horrible Yellow Rollover warning decals on the visors….
I think I left it alone for 2 or 3 days after that, but before 2 weeks of ownership were up, I had continued on to:
=> De-badged all emblems other than the rear “JEEP”. Swapped it for a Black version.
=>Installed WeatherTech inline wind deflectors.
=>Installed the Reflective White Vinyl in the SRT embedded tow hitch cover
=>Installed tinted lower rear fog lights & Upper 3rd brake light (will eventually get ALL the tails tinted).
=> Swapped Upper Grill Rings for Black from the Vapor model.
=> And had the windows tinted…FormulaOne Pinnacle (Ceramic) Tint – 18% Front Sides, 35% Sunroof, 50% Windshield + 5% Strip.
Next up I installed a Good Year GatorBack Belt 6PK2100….
Long story behind this one but I had a factory belt fail prematurely on the Magnum right after buying it and well before modding it. Best we could tell, it was simply a bad belt. Since then I have been paranoid and swap over to a Gatorback early in the ownership (as well as keep a spare around at all times)… Overkill, yeah I know, but its cheap piece of mind.
Soon I set off to swap ALL interior and exterior lamps with LED:
Followed by the installation of the matching silver parking brake cover:
& The Diablo Sports OBD-II cover (Not tuned yet but still prefer the dealer check with me before doing any upgrades)
After that, I picked up some low cost Child Size Headphones for the reear vid system. Not only are they smaller and fit the kids better but they actually feel to be of better quality despite the cheap brand name and low cost. Also came with different color backs to keep the kids from stealing the others...
I had already began (as listed above) but now I set out to complete more of my endeavor to rid it of all the chrome.
Upper Grille Rings were already completed, so now, on to the the Lower Rings:
