2013 WK2 Laredo Lots of Upgrades - Pics!

Purchased a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo back in November. Got around to doing a few upgrades for it over the past few months. Any feedback is appreciated!

-Summit Chrome Grill (Thanks to Fght on )
-Summit Chrome Fog light bezels
-Chrome lower front bumper piece (Installed by body shop, shaved tabs and attached with urethane epoxy) - (Thanks to Srt8_hemi )
-20" Wheels wrapped in 265/50/20 Hankook Ventus ST tires (No complaints whatsoever on the tires, choices were limited in stock sizes and these not only look great but perform great as well)
-Sharkfin Antenna
-Chrome exhaust tip
-430 RBZ Radio
-Auto Climate Controls
-Mopar Back up Camera
-Curt Hitch + 4 pin wiring + Mopar hitch cover (I also looked into the factory hitch option but it was going to run me about $550-$600 through the dealer. I purchased the Curt hitch and wiring for $140 and installed it myself. I went with the curved bar and I like the way it sits. Mainly going to be using it for a bike rack and the bolt on hitch gives me the option of removing it if I want.)
-LED Fogs (Thanks to Scott )
-Sylvania Silverstar ZXE low beams (will try and get a better pic at night but they are significantly whiter than stock)
-OnStar rear view mirror for bluetooth (Only $100 total for part and installation at Best Buy and bluetooth functions without an OnStar subscription!)
-Mopar license plate frames
-15% tinted windows

I know most people dislike chrome but I think it compliments the black great plus I wanted to go in a different direction than my past cars.
Right now I basically have the truck sitting how I want it. Debating whether I should remove the Laredo badging on the back and just keep the 4X4 emblem, or remove them both. What do you guys think?

Heres the pics:

You've been busy...I like the mods and agree the chrome compliments the black.

Re: 2013 WK2 Laredo Lots of Upgrades - Pics!

OMG that's almost exactly what my Jeep looks like! I like everything your doing. Very very nice! Nothing wrong with some tasteful chrome accents.

I still have the Summit grill and back-up camera light bar sitting around until I see some warm weather to install. Did you install the back-up camera yourself?

I also want to get bluetooth/U-connect installed and the dealer wants $500 so maybe I'll look at the mirror option. I like the look of dual exhaust so I still might go with the mopar hitch since I will need to replace the lower bumper anyway. Decided to remove all the badges from the back and it looks nice and clean.

I had the dealer install the backup camera because they have to unlock the feature in your car by updating the sales code plus it looked like a real pain to install that.

Do you have a pic you can post of the back without the badges? I am very curious to see before I attempt it myself!

Thanks for the feedback

Re: 2013 WK2 Laredo Lots of Upgrades - Pics!

Couldn't wait and peeled off the 4X4 and Laredo emblems tonight haha, took me about 15 min, used a hair dryer and some dental floss to get them off. Went over the area with some bug and tar remover after and it got the remaining residue off. Will snap some pics hopefully tomm.

Re: 2013 WK2 Laredo Lots of Upgrades - Pics!

GCNY13 now all your ride needs is the chrome bumper pad surround.

Chrome Step Pad Surround

We have the same set up except mine is Max Steel, I had the backup camera installed back in September. I'm thinking of adding the sensors, of course I wont be doing the install LOL.
