My 2015 Red Vapor

Hey everyone,

New to the forum, so thought I'd post a few pics and list my one mod

Just got the Jeep back in December and am loving it. Traded in my 2014 Durango RT when I realized everything I wanted to do to it was already available in a Jeep lol.

Performance wise she is fully stock, but I plan on doing a Corsa system and a tune pretty soon.

I just ordered a set of 22x10.5 XO Verona wheels in Gunmetal Grey. I'll post a few pics when I get them on.

Any advise on drop options? I obviously want to avoid rubbing issues, but get her to sit down a bit more.

I had the chrome window lining done with black 3m wrap and love how it turned out.

Ok, I'll quit rambling and post a few pics now

Re: My 2015 Red Vapor

Just a quick update.

I ordered a RM Mid drop from Chad at Black Ops. I had one on my Durango and loved it, so thought why not! I should be getting my XO Verona 22x10.5 wheels this week, so I need to get crakin on the rubber to go with them.

I also ordered a few other upgrades for her and will be getting them within the next week, I'll post a few pics when I have them on.

Upgrades coming in
1. Corsa Cat-Back
2. AFE CAI
3. Diablo tune w/ PCM

I cant wait to get these all on and activate "beast mode"!

Re: My 2015 Red Vapor

Thanks!

All mods are done except for the wheels. I am putting on adjustable rear control arms this weekend, then the final piece are the wheels and tires.

I'll post a "completed" picture once it's all done

Re: My 2015 Red Vapor

Finally got everything squared away with the Kraken. Here are a few "finished" shots. I'll post a few more once she is good and clean.

Re: My 2015 Red Vapor

Looks awesome man have been toying with same setup. What part of Houston are you? A-kon on here/red site is in H-town and I live in Katy but work in California (contract employee- higher pay d/t cost of living but maintain Texas resident and no CA state tax, best of both worlds!)

Re: My 2015 Red Vapor

Cool man, yeah there seems to be quite a few Jeep guys in Houston. I am in the Tomball area, just moved from Cypress a few months ago.

Re: My 2015 Red Vapor

Man, that looks damn good!

Are those last pics with the rear adjustable control arms installed?

I have installed a set of RM Mids & new Bilstein shocks on my 2015 Altitude but am having problems getting my rear camber right. With stock arms, they are adjusted all the way out and I need more.

If you don't mind, I have a couple questions:
Which control arms did you buy?
With them installed were you able to get the rear camber dialed in within spec?

Thanks

Re: My 2015 Red Vapor

Thanks man!
Yep, rear control arms are on in those pictures, and yes everything is back in OEM spec and squared up.

I went with the control arms from Chad at Blackops, he is also who you want to talk to for any questions you have about this subject. He helped me tremendously through the entire process from drop to control arms.

Yep, Chad is a good guy. I talked with him before buying the springs. He said I may need adjustable arms, but there were quite a few with these sets that did not end up needing them. Guess I wan't so lucky LOL.

I sent him a PM earlier in the day. He'll no doubt get back to me.

Thanks again for the reply, I appreciate it
