Added 20" chrome Mopar wheels and Summit grille to the wife's Limited

She said she loved the Jeep, but wished it had more chrome, so I got the chrome Mopar/Jeep accessory wheels and a Summit grille for her white gold Limited. The angles of the spokes catch a lot of light and added the sparkle she was wanting. The grille looks better, but now someone needs to hurry up and come up with something to replace the black plastic between the fogs. I think chrome tow hooks will be next.

I didn't think I liked that much chrome, especially the Summit grille, but it all looks good on her Limited.

Looks good brian. What tires did you go with? Take a look at Ablaze. I think they could match a grill for the bottom section.

Noticed you bought the car in Roanoke, was just there a few days ago to get an oil change. A very good dealer. A guy showed up right after me with a viper, he had driven 3 hours to bring it in for maintenance!

Too funny. That's the day I was there getting the wheels and grille installed. I saw your JGC SRT8 in Dave's stall when I got there. Very nice and as I was looking it over, Dave joked that I should trade for the red one they just had delivered. I was tempted to do something crazy, but that's just too much machine for momma!

I am near Champaign (previously from Morton), so they are an hour-and-fifiteen-minute drive for me now, but I don't trust anyone else besides the crew there. 5 cars (2 of them SRTs) in the past 7 years from them. Good small town, no pressure atmosphere and excellent service techs.

I ordered it with the optional 20's, so I just switched the Forteras over to the new wheels. I thought doing that would give me some time to figure out what to do as far as either putting a set of winter tires on the stock wheels, or selling the stock wheels and just running the new chrome ones year round or maybe finding some 18's for winter. Had I known this was coming, I probably should have just stayed with the standard 18's and saved the $795 cost to upgrade.

Thanks for the link to Ablaze. I will check them out!

Thanks for the compliments from everyone. I wasn't 100% sure what I was going to think of it, either, but the chrome seems to play pretty well with the lighter, metallic colors where the contrast is less than it would be on a darker color. And ..... she likes it, so that's the main thing!
