Make it Look Cool: $1000

Im getting a new (used) 2014 stock SRT.
Im planning on it being Alpine.

I want it to look cool & have already seen some great pics & comments on here. Im a guy from the beemer world who is not afraid to take chances, hell in my e60 I had a team remotely from Romania help me do a complete info-tainment system overhaul for $3K including coding.

In this case though I want to achieve the following & would love all yalls input:

1. How can I easily / cheaply turn off all the in motion crap. Bonus if I can turn off annoying beeping warnings too.

2. Looks looks looks: Im a 42 year old dad, but I want this to look classy cool. Not cheesy but classy cool (yes thats subjective & I accept any input & thank you kindly).

Thank You Gang,

If you get an Alpine white, the best mod would be to get rid of the chrome trim pieces. Black on white looks great.

I would recommend buying the 7 OEM black grill rings (about $200). For the window trim and the lower air intake bezels on the front, I got mine wrapped with 3M Scotchbrite 1080 gloss black vinyl for about $350. The OEM parts will cost you over $1,000 alone for those pieces - it's ridiculous.

I also recommend removing the Jeep badge on the hood and Grand Cherokee from the doors - can do this yourself with minimal tools and some elbow grease.

With the remaining cash, you might look into doing the Mufflex kit or something similar... the factory exhaust is too quiet in my opinion, but yours may differ. Some slotted/dimpled rotors help set the vehicle apart as well because blank rotors just look lame - but you won't get anything other than looks out of that.

I ended up doing a lot to my Jeep. Cost me a pretty penny... but she's about as perfect as I could want.
