Talking 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

What up JG!

Finally have made some progress on my 14' SRT so I thought I would share some of the mods I've done with some pics and thoughts.

Bought in December 2014 with 4k miles...very happy I did since I saved almost $17k of MSRP!! Dealer I purchased from threw in the max care warranty and full floor/cargo mats as well

Here is the progress...most of these mods I learned from JG so thank you all for your help with my beast! Any questions just ask



This was his first time home after some love/detail







"Jill" 08' 5.7L 2wd (gone but NEVER forgotten )...my friends 14' Overland...Jack




Tinted up...20% over stock rear (5) windows, 5% on rear lower bumper reflectors and 3M clear film on headlights




Rear black Jeep emblem...muffler delete (for $100, this really made the beast sound like is has over 475hp and does not have any drone @ freeway speeds, even with ECO/MDS engaged )






Video w/ muffler delete (without aFe intake)




Afe Pro Dry S Intake, BT Catch can w/ stainless braided lines and BT caps





I needed new tires (@ 12k on the Pirelli run-flats, I had about 1-2k miles left) and was tired of cleaning the Spider Monkeys (they are a biotch to keep clean )...so I had some Goliath's custom painted dark grey with a hint of metallic




Changed the pads to thermoquiets (Amazon, $80 for the set!!), replaced the front rotors under the warranty recall and got new Toyo Proxes ST II's 295/45r20, TPMS, along with black Gorilla lugs and painted-matched center caps!! Could not be happier with the ride quality, traction (for the $$) and mpg boost (over 2 mpg's better on the freeway @ 80 mph over the Pirelli run-flats)

















Hard-wired my Passport Redline radar detector to the rear-view mirror ($15 part from Amazon, 10 minute install)




90's MBZ E-Class parking brake pedal cover (GREAT mod for $15 and 15 minutes)







Carbon fiber wrap on sun visors and rear aluminum-finished cargo inserts (GREAT cheap mod as well IMO)






Protect your key(s)? Got both of these on Amazon...they are awesome





I have a couple more mods I am mulling over...but for now I am happy with my progress. Any input is greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking

Looks awesome! Thinking about getting my winter spiders powdercoated. My SRT is black. Was thinking a very dark gunmetal but Mbe just black would look best.

Nice ride tho!

Thank you sir!! What color are your other wheels? I don't think you can go wrong either way, just a matter of the look you want.

14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

I have two sets of factory spider monkeys in black chrome

Btw- still fighting dealership on rotor replacement. They say they'll need to replicate issue. As u probably know, the squeaking doesnt happen all the time but when it does, it's hella annoying and it happens often enough. Have appointment sept. 3 and will ask SRT support team to contact my dealership prior

That's BS...the TSB is by build date only and clearly states it is not always replicated. There should be no discussion. Contact Jeep if they do not handle it!

Re: 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

No brainer, did the black grille rings. I am happy...brake ducts will be paint matched to wheels or carbon fiber...or gloss black hahaha

Before:




Took about 20 mins to get them off, first one was almost half of that time haha...worked bottom up, corner to corner...with a trim stick and thin towel to put in-between ring and grille. Once the bottom is off, two clicks at the top with the trim stick, starting at the corner then moving inward towards the opposite ring corner.






(I have to black out the "quarter" that now sticks out behind the grille below the hood latch...flat ended bolt iirc...paint it black)
