Re: From Offroad Jeep to SRT8 Wanna-Be *Pics of the transform

That sucks. Is there a difference in the 05-06 srt bumpers from J4J and the new models?

yeah...the 08-10 SRT bumpers have little humps below the headlight to fill the scallops in the headlamp

Can't you buy the little lids that cover the bottoms of the headlights?

You by any chance got a drivers side wheel well cover?

You can get the wheel well plastic for cheap through rock auto. Like $30 each side. I had to get new ones myself when they came loose and committed suicide in my tires.

Looks great! Thanks again for the great package deal. I wish my driving habits would allow me to drive a lowered wk, but lifted it is! Lol enjoy and keep us posted on the build.

Re: From Offroad Jeep to SRT8 Wanna-Be *Pics of the transform

Nice quick conversion. Can;t believe how fast you are. Let me know how things go... snow performance... how smooth the road feels... etc. Also, how MPG changes...

I ask bc I am personally lifting mine right now. Same tires, etc that you rocked. Will be interesting to see.

Re: From Offroad Jeep to SRT8 Wanna-Be *Pics of the transform

Thanks, as far as the mpg's, they haven't changed much. Speedo was a little slow with the big tires and its about 1.7% fast now. Not too big of a deal. It does seem a little more responsive but that could likely be from the predator tuner too.

Re: From Offroad Jeep to SRT8 Wanna-Be *Pics of the transform

Gotcha. How does it feel sitting so low? I literally almost did your exact wheel/tires combo and go for an SRT look... but then realized I have a diesel 4x4... and I always wanted a bigger truck. All my part s are in the mail. Just waiting now..... I'll make a big post when it's done

Re: From Offroad Jeep to SRT8 Wanna-Be *Pics of the transform

I hear ya. I was really close to pulling the trigger on a superlift kit but had to be realistic about how much time i could actually use it. I wouldn't have this jeep any other way. Everyone i know thinks i'm sick in the head because i've always had huge jeeps. I love the ride, look and overall concept of this truck.
