Curious how you hard wired radar to your mirror. What was the part you got from Amazon? You have a link? Just got a Valentine One and want to use your set up. Thanks!

Re: 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

Nice ride. I like the white with blackout features. I hope you don't mind me using your ideas on my 2015 Granite Crystal Metallic Jeep. The carbon fibre inserts in the back look great. Please provide a link or a source for these accessories when you can.
Your CAI I would also like source. It looks like a great alternative to a K&N with no oil, right?
The black grill is a must as well. I'm putting Magnaflows on this coming week... first things first.
Thanks.

Here is the link to the Mirror Cord I bought...works perfectly with my Passport Redline and my new Max360. VERY simple install and IMO is the cleanest look for a hardwire. I used to tap into the fuse box, but this was so much easier to install and has worked great for over 6 months. Great product for $14! I am pretty sure this will work for your V1, but I would double-check as I have not installed a V1 utilizing this cord

Thank you for the kind words...I couldn't agree more, the SRT has so many gloss-black trimmings so it just made sense to continue the theme. I do not know why the SRT's did not come from the Factory like this! Check our just4jeeps.com for the PX-8 grille rings and lower brake duct surrounds. Also bought my rear PX8 Jeep emblem from there too...these should have been my first mods!

The aFe I have installed is awesome! Improved engine/exhaust note, better mpg's and looks sweet IMO. Correct, this is an inverted dry-fileter (Pro Dry-S). I love not having to oil the filter and after 10k miles I have "cleaned" it out once (removed filter, quick rinse then air-dry...VERY minimal dirt was evident). I have been very happy with this intake, and consistently get IAT temp readings 5-7 degrees above ambient when moving...which is great based on all of the research I did prior to purchasing. There is a new version (Momentum GT) which appears to very well engineered, but based on what I have read it is not worth the extra $$ over the Pro-Dry 2 S that I have.

What Magnaflow exhaust setup are you going with? I have just ordered a Corsa from my buddy on here...he did not like it as it was too quiet for him...so he will be getting the Borla Atak system. Will post pics/vids once it is installed. I had a Magnaflow on my 08' Hemi and loved it. What made you chose Magnaflow? Interested to hear your thoughts...

Re: 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

So I finally got around to installing a couple LED's in the rear passenger overhead lights...in the picture below I have the rear cargo lights, reverse lights (921's, which do not fit since they are too small to fit into the connection so I need to get them replaced) and the overhead passengers (installed, pics).

As you can see, the new Phillips LED's get rid of the orange-hue light and replace with a nice blue-tint. I love the look of LEDs in the interior as they match the majority of the interior lighting now. I have no clue why they did not make all interior lighting LEDs as it looks weir IMO having two distinct colors of lights in the interior. Very easy install (less than 2 minutes) and look great with the other LEDs I have installed. Will post more pics once I get the rear cargo installed and the needed replacements for the 4x reverse bulbs...

Thanks for the information. The Magnaflows were simply chosen over Borla, Corsa, etc. because of the tone. I have put exhaust systems on the last 7-8 cars I've owned. I like the deep throatiness of Magnaflow. Had I gone with Borla I would have opted for the "S" rather than the ATAK system. There's a Mustang that runs an ATAK near my house and I think it draws too much attention to itself.

thanks again!

Re: 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

Silly "mod"...found these interior mats on eBay so I thought I would give them a try. For the price I am VERY impressed with the fitment and look. I was worried that it would be too much red/Jeep inside, but you actually can't see them when driving! All of the pics have the mats installed. Subtle, cheap interior fun for the beast

I agree with your assessment...I had a Flowmaster, Borla and Magnaflow on my 08' 5.7L...and the Magnaflow was straight throaty! I always got compliments on the sound of it. The Borla was nice when I opened it up, but was to subtle for me. The Flowmaster was loud, but seemed "fake" and didn't have a natural/deep tone to it. So when I replaced the Borla with the Magnaflow (after the Flowmaster) it was perfect! I hope the Corsa is a good medium between louder than stock but minimal on the freeway/no drone. Hopefully will have it on in the next 2 weeks.

Do you have videos of your Magnaflow?

Re: 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

The boxes arrived today for the Maggies. I'm simply putting the mufflers on for now. They are nice polished stainless. I'll either go with 4" or 5" tips. I gotta post some pics! Give me a couple days. If there were parts of the system you'd absolutely replace please tell me. You and I both live in the land of wackos, so the catalytic converter's gotta stay.:thumbs:
Love to hear your views. I bought an extended warranty and don't wanna mess with breaking down the motor for 5 years or so. Exhaust, intake, tuning, if possible. The finance Mgr at the dealer said no tuning on a 2015. I hope he's wrong.

I unfortunately have heard the same thing...no tuning yet for the MY2015's

Please post your feedback and videos once you get the Magnies installed...looking forward to hearing the setup!

Thank you! I have no clue why Jeep didn't do that in the first place, since they already have the parts for other trims. Makes no sense

Question Re: 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

I was able to get some more installed...but for some reason the bulb types are somewhat inaccurate. Let me explain:

For the reverse lights on a 2014, there are 4 bulbs; two on the cargo door and the other on the outter-fenders. Based on my research, all 4 were the same...this is NOT accurate! The inner cargo reverse bulbs are 921's (pictures below). The outter tails have a larger bulb/socket (after talking with Danny, we are thinking they are 3156's). Can anyone confirm this?

For the rear cargo interior lights, the fitment guide says 6411 Festoon bulbs...which they are NOT! They take a 921 (see pics).

This has been quite frustrating as the fitment guides seem very straight forward, but there are multiple errors.

I am working with Danny/XenonDepot now to figure out the proper bulbs to purchase. So far I have the following replaced:

Footwells
Front Domes
Rear passenger over-heads
Rear Cargo
Inner cargo reverse lights

There is a pic below of the interior with all LED's installed...LOVE the look! Did this in my 08' and really dig the look when entering/exiting the beast


Does anyone know what bulb we need to utilize for the outter reverse lights? There are two pics below (in the sunlight): both close-ups, one with the buld installed and the other with it out next to the socket. Any ideas? 3156?? Please post pics/links to the bulbs you have purchased for these...

I will let everyone know what I find out...

Re: 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

SOOO the front end "black-out" is done! Take a look at the before and after...

There have been some threads on here about what looks better...and for me there is no question that the SRT (especially in white) looks better with the chrome delete. To me it compliments all of the other trim pieces much better...and looks MEAN when the beast is in someones rear-view mirror!

Be honest...to chrome or not chrome...what do you like best??
