Re: ItsAJeepThing's Build Thread

Thank you Paul.

Thank you machina. I want to get a set of 20s and use them as a winter set + I want to see how much of a difference in ride comfort and handling is between 22s and 20s. Im still missing srt side skirts but I need the rims first "/ also you never know how the winter in NYC is going to be like, last year = crazy snow storm and this year = barely any snow at all.

LOL I brought mine last year, and I only got to play one time. We got 6-8 in parts of S.I., and she was stuck to the ground.

Re: ItsAJeepThing's Build Thread

I think we are going to have a crazy winter this year. So get ready for more fun in the snow.

Re: ItsAJeepThing's Build Thread

really nice build, itsajeepthing!
Might I suggest painting the rest of your mirrors to color match the white... I think it would look awesome.

What part of BK are you from?
My parents and grandparents were born and raised in BK. I grew up in SI.

I hope we get a good winter this year, as in snow! We barely got anything here in PA too... I bought my jeep last October, a few months after I moved out here, and we only got that one Halloween storm. Figures. haha

Good luck with the rest of the build!

Re: ItsAJeepThing's Build Thread

Thank you bro. I might consider it as one of my future mods.
I am from bensonhurst. Thats nice, what park of bk are your parents and grandparents from?
I am not too much of a snow fan. It gets crazy here in nyc. All these garbage trucks plowing snow, too much salt and then we get huge potholes after every winter. I was thinking of maybe buying a lifted wrangler and just drive through all the snow "mountains" lol. + you can make a decent amount of $ in the winter, pulling out people's cars that got stuck.

Re: ItsAJeepThing's Build Thread

So I come home from work and I have a surprise waiting for me. Mr. Mailman left a nice package at my house. A set of Eibach lowering springs, Eibach t-shirt, Eibach gloves and Eibach hat. Pictures coming soon.

Re: ItsAJeepThing's Build Thread

Before I lower my wk, what are some things I should consider or be aware of? Is it ok to lower the car and keep the stock shocks/struts that I have now or is it better to get the srt8 bilsteins? Are srt8 bilsteins the only company that makes shocks/struts for them or are there any other companies? Do I have to cut the bumpstop or it is not required? First time lowering a cars, so I would like as much information as possible. Also, I want to get the srt8 front/rear sway bars. Do I need to get the sway bar links?

My plan was/is to convert this WK into a White Jeep SRT Clone. So far, I have put a good amount of work and it is looking pretty good. I get a lot of compliments, people just stare at the car as i am passing by. I have a lot of pictures, some are good (dig. cam.) and some are not that good, but not bad (cam. phone).

Information about the JEEP:
Year: 2009
Make: Jeep
Model: Grand Cherokee Limited
Color: Stone White

Lets get started on the pictures and Ill try to put them step by step, from the day I got it.

The 1st day that I got the JEEP.



Parked in the Driveway.





My WJ and WK just hanging out together.



This is my 2 tone interior.



I hate that fishing pole antenna, so I ordered a 3" shorty antenna from ebay. Let me tell you, same quality signal for the radio, but a much better look.



Decided to PlastiDip all the chrome badges/emblems just to see how it will look.

Taped everything off and started dipping.







The result. Came out pretty good. Black on White theme.





Started ordering parts.
HID from v-leds.com 8000K low/fog
Sylvania Silverstar Chrome 3157 bulbs (blends right in, in the headlights and gets rid of the orange/amber turn signal
SRT8 Roof Rails
WeatherTech front/rear Window Visors
WeatherTech front/rear floor mats

Here are the SRT Roof rails and Window Visors that I purchased from 2 members from JG



Installing HIDs in fogs, 1 HID vs 1 Stock. How much of a difference does it make.



Parked in the school's garage, only fogs and parking lights are on.





I decided to tint the car. Went with 20% on the front windows to match the rear.



Just some random pictures.











Wondering where you got your bumbers?
