Exterior Mods (will be updated as it goes)

Hey all, as most of you have seen I am one of the new comers here. Just picked up a 2014 Granite Crystal SRT8 last Friday and already making changes. I switched over from a 2012 Durango R/T all blacked out and I am looking to do the same type of things with this vehicle. To start off I removed the front and rear badges. I will also be taking the door badges off as well later today. The other plans are to black out the chrome on the front, black or paint match window trim and the rear jeep emblem, followed up with tinting the tail lights. Window tint will be going on today and Hopefully get these wheels done in black shortly. Otherwise here are the first pics of the debadging.




Here are updates of the doors debadged.



Got the Black Grilles put on and decided to pull the front plate. Jeep will have tints done today which I will add later. I decided to match the factory rear tint and add a limo banner on the front windshield.
Oh.. and most expensive box of plastic parts...

Thanks! I can't seem to edit the first post.. But here is the update with tints.

Matched the 20% up front and added a 12" limo strip on the windshield.

Funny how changing the front upper and lower rings can make such a big difference on our rigs.

Looks like you are off and running on some nice changes. Keep up the good work.

Mike

I like it….....your wheels are the contrast with everything else now…..black chrome Spiders and black rear JEEP badge would finish it…..Im partial to them though.

Thanks, I'm slowly getting around to that! Will be blacking out the window trim, the back jeep is getting painted the body color and the wheels will be going gloss black. Big changes for having it only a week.

Those tails look sweet! Do you worry about being ticketed for having them so dark?

Exactly what I was thinking too Mike. Those look pretty dark.
They look good though.

There's an Illinois state trooper just salivating at writing a ticket for that. They do look nice but depending on where you're driving it can begin to be a bit of a hassle once Johnny law starts pulling you over for it.

Wow the black accents and rear end look AWESOME! Nice job...keep the pics coming!

I just ordered a black rear Jeep emblem and will install that this weekend...only $80 and will finish off your rear end perfectly
