Daniel's '15 JGC SRT Build <Pic Heavy>

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.

Born: 11/16/2014 @ 9:05 AM EST

Delivered to Dealer: 11/26/2014 @ 8:00 AM EST

Drove from North Alabama to Sanford, Fl and picked her up: 12/6/2014 @ 11:00AM EST

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:

Re: Daniel's '15 JGC SRT Build <Pic Heavy>

Then the Chrome “SRT” wheel Caps” went away in favor of the Gloss Black "Jeep" versions & finishing it up by swapping the lugs to Black Gorilla Locking Lugs:



I still have to get the Chrome around the windows vinyl wrapped… Soon I hope.

*** Stopping here I know I am going to get beat up for both the above Wheel Cap swap and the next mod I am about to list… First, I would have loved to have kept the “SRT” wheel caps, but I really did not like the CHROME. If they ever come out with Gloss Black or Black Chrome SRT caps, I will be all over it.

Next, I swapped out the RED Push to start button.. Yeah, I know, Its an SRT, but I REALLY think it stood out too much next to the overall very classy interior. To each their own right?



Shortly thereafter I went ahead and installed all kinds of under hood Billet Goodies:







As well as my custom made rebadge 392 Engine Covers:







Also got my CustomTronix In Motion Software installed (Front Cam will be going in soon as well).





I then proceeded to swap out the nipple on the factory Oil Cooler:





Why you ask? It changes the filters I can use....

Why did I care? Two reasons. #1. I am not sure on the exact year but a few years ago Chrysler changed the threads, effectively changing the part # of the oil filter used. Prior to this change, you had options on the SIZE of the oil filter you wanted to use all the way up to one that housed a full quart. You could buy this from MOPAR OR from Mobil 1 the part # was M1-301….

I LIKE LARGE FILTERS…



#2. I Still have my Magnum, My Uncle bought our old 2006 300 SRT and I have a few buddies with Chargers. We regularly go in and buy filters (M1-301) in bulk to save us all money.

And last but not least, this last weekend I got the Rear Eibach ProKit springs installed, accomplishing my goal of leveling it out.

























Oh and for the record, not only have I been modding it, but also we have been driving it. Just over 8200 miles on the clock!


Well, I think that's it for now, Much more to come I am sure. Thanks for looking!

Re: Daniel's '15 JGC SRT Build <Pic Heavy>

Can you tell me the Part# for the oil nipple and what was needed to change it. any extra O-rings etc Allen key size? TQ sqec's can you do it while it's still on the jeep.

I too like Large oil filters I got a m-301 on my 4.7 WJ

Also Thanks for the gatorback part # I've been looking for one I got 52k on my SRT, Hasn't missed beat

Happy to help!

Unfortunately you cant get just the nipple, or at least I was unable to find it. If you order a complete Oil Cooler kit from prior to the changeover (Part # 5037523AA) you will get both the nipple and the housing itself. I didn't change the housing (they were the same).

FYI, you use a large Hex Bit / wrench to remove / install the nipple.. You can just make out the walls inside from this pic:



I believe its about $140 but then you could always turn around and sell the whole kit with the new nipple to someone who doesn't have the oil cooler at all (and doesn't care about using the newer filter) and get most of that back.

Re: Daniel's '15 JGC SRT Build <Pic Heavy>

Apparently in this forum you use an older 6.1/5.7 Nipple. says a 12MM Hex.
04104511AB which is like under $10 Apparently I haven't used the right combo of words in google till now.

is there a big oil filter for the 6.4?

I am not sure that will work.... A google search seems to imply that is just the original short nipple for vehicles without an oil cooler.... Not certain though...

The thread you linked seems to indicate its an ADAPTER to convert the two... It wouldn't replace the entire center through the oil cooler....

The price is right ( < $10) might be worth somebody ordering to be sure. Not me of course, the cash is spent and the M1-301 is on there so I'm all set....

I think your right. you can almost read a part # on the picture you posted. I would think you could buy it separate found pic's of that part # and it's the small nipple that would be in the block without an oil cooler. Ugh..

Daniel's '15 JGC SRT Build &lt;Pic Heavy&gt;

Unfortunately I didn't get a better pic before installing it... And as much as I love this forum, it's not worth it to remove. :-) sorry.

Oh and to your other questions....

No O-ring on the bottom, those come on the filters. I did not replace the upper o-ring... I guess it may fail eventually and might be an issue if swapping this out in a high mileage engine but it set back down and sealed fine with the old on both this one and in my 2012 when I did the same thing to it at around 60k miles...

I can't find the torque specs, I did have something in hand when I did it but not sure where I got it and can't find it now.... It's all aluminum so right up front, it won't take much!!!!

I will keep digging and get you anything I find.

Found the torque specs!

Its 55 N/m or 41 ft/lbs.

And yes it's a 12mm hex.

Re: Daniel's '15 JGC SRT Build <Pic Heavy>

Got my FastMan 84mm Ported TB and SpeedLogix CAI installed today.

(Was hoping BlackOps would have their true CAI available by now, no luck and I missed hearing the Hemi roar so I went ahead with this one primarily for THE SOUND)

Re: Daniel's '15 JGC SRT Build <Pic Heavy>

Great start to the modding the vehicle looks great! No hate here for the black center caps, I have the exact same ones and would love some that said SRT, but the chrome does not match the wheels or the black lugs that I installed. You really can't even see that the cap says jeep unless you are right up on it, not that it matters anyway I'm proud of my Jeep!

Thanks! I too like the idea of keeping the JEEP name on there a few places too so it really was an easy decision to make the swap.

The reason I haven't swapped out the door sills with the vapor models (From "JEEP" to "SRT" is too because I wanted to try to keep the SRT vs JEEP references fairly equal...
