I don't run the front plate at all. Just the plate bracket. It doesn't look that bad as is.

Jeep looks good ! Looks like they put 4 screws in your bumper.

I also had a 2011 that I wasn't able to finish building. I don't plan on off roading her at all. I'll get another wrangler for that one day.

Mods done;

Altitude wheels from 2015 "low" altitude, decide on these vs the high altitude ones. Wrapped in Nitto All terrain. Same as stock size

Black gorilla lugs and locks

SRT black tail light bezels

Overland horizontal grille inserts

Black fog light bezels

Altitude headlights with HIDS

Grille rings black, from an SRT

Front Windows tinted 20%, should have done 15%. Shop didn't have 15..

De badged chrome front and side added black OEM jeep logo to the back

Seat covers / wet okole Hawaii

Mats / Jeep brand front, middle and back

Future mods

Vinyl wrap the chrome on the windows and rails, ASAP! Can't wait to get rid of the rest of the chrome.

Leveling kit RRO, possibly.

Matching the front, rear bumper and wheels surrounds body color, possibly. Kinda liking how it looks now.

Rims are Jeep brand from an 2014-2015 Altitude model.

Altitude wheels from 2015 "low" altitude, decide on these vs the high altitude ones.

Tires are Nitto All terrain. Same as stock size

Thanks Gov! I had to take a little break. I was going at it every weekend for about a month. I might have a little something in the works for about 2 weeks from now.

Is it me or have you been around for a while?

Looking great Juan. Any chance of a couple of pics of the interior? Tough to find real-world Laredo interior pics. I'm currently in a '14 Granite Limited, but might go to '17 Granite Laredo when they come out; always a fan of cloth interior, don't have to get Quadra lift ('17), color matching exterior ( less chrome)/ nice contrast black on the wheel trims, better looking headlights (IMO).
Thanks,
Al

Thanks Al! Honestly if I had to do it over I would just get a 2016 75th anniversary edition. Less chrome and I like the new front. Basically I would just have to swap all of the champagne for black and it be happy. Although the champagne doesn't bother me nearly as much as the chrome did.

I'll post some pics of the inside tomorrow. Although I have seat covers on my seats now. The rest of the interior pretty much looks the same as your limited except I have the smaller radio screen.

Not bad. After the first day or so I didn't notice it. Def not as quiet as stock rubber. I listen to the radio a little loud so I'm prob drowning it out. You can only really tell on the highway with the radio off.

Blacked out my window trim this weekend. It looks great from far away. Looks like horrible up close. Typically I do all of my mods minus the window tinting. Looks like I'm going to need to get a professional involved. Here's somewhat of a pic from far away. I had such a bad experience with the guys that tinted my windows that I didn't want anyone touching the jeep. Gonna have to find a reputable wrap shop nearby to fix it.

Mine is the gray one. Just snapped a couple quick pics next to a first gen WK2 today.

I'm glad the are doing away with the smiley fascia staring in 2017 and with the 2016 70th anniv editions.
