This is my first Jeep ever, but not new to the performance world. Love this vehicle so far. It has the Hemi, and lucked out that i'm the second owner with 27k miles when I got her last week-my old 2004 Explorer exploded. Stumbled across this and scooped her up.
Brilliant Black Crystal. The mod bug is already buzzing in my head, and I have been lurking around this site trying to get information. Some things I'd like to start with:
- too much chrome. I'd like to black everything out to match the paint. Are there parts i can buy that are Mopar replacements for what is chrome and do not need to be painted? For example, i know the grille can be done, but things like the lower front bumper portion, side skirt chrome, door handles, fog light surround, etc - are there replacement parts that can just be swapped and not have to be painted?
- Headlights. I'd like to have the SRT blacked out look to match the rest of the vehicle once its blacked out. I know these are expensive-cheaper to get a custom headlight shop to paint the insides?
- Ride height. I have the Summit so that means this thing automatically raises the height once the vehicle starts. I really wish they made this option customizeable and less automatic, so the driver controls how high or low he wants the vehicle to sit at all times - like an aftermarket system. My question is, has anyone ever tried to manipulate the ECM to change these parameters? I feel like that should be able to be done through some updating of the ECM.
Thanks for the replies, and sorry if i asked something that has already been answered-been searching and reading and already have several tabs open to other questions i had hahahaha
