Kaczman WK Grand Cherokee Progress Thread

I figured I'd start a progress thread before I get everything in and finished. Here is my WK so far:






So far on order I have:

22" Viper Reps, black & machined (to match my M6.)
2 sets of tires, 285/45/22 or 265/40/22 (couldnt decide.)
2.5" lift (couldnt decide)
black housing head lights
6k HID, white/amber switchback LED turn signals
new front bumper and lower valance
stillen headlight turn signal covers
4x black door molding replacements
LED tail lights
LED Fogs
AVIC-Z2 install w/ backup camera, bluetooth, satellite

To do:
Replace front window tint to match sides and rears.
tint tail lights
possibly tint fogs and headlights
repaint grille body color, paint headlight covers
Im considering painting the front bumper and lower valence all silver.
Im also considering doing the door moldings silver, not sure on that though.
Cant decide if I want to leave the lower rockers black or paint silver like overlands.


I value everyone's input during this process, on what you think will look best.

Painting everything to match would give an overall clean look

Re: Kaczman WK Grand Cherokee Progress Thread

I agree. Im not sure if I like the contrast with the black or not just yet.
