that looks really good...can't believe that is vinyl?

I kind of wish I had just done that myself instead of changing out the handles and buying Caps for the mirrors

I had a shop do them, the mirror caps and handles cost me a total of $260.00 cdn. let's see how this holds up over time. Overall I'm quite happy with the results.

thats not bad...cost me about $300 to buy the 4 handles and then another 236$ to install the front 2

my Carbon Fiber Caps cost me about $200 Shipped

i'm thinking the vinyl looks good enough for me

Did you make that mesh front grille yourself or buy a "kit"? How does it install? Any info is greatly appreciated...I REALLY like the look of that over the plastic on my SRT...I did a custom grille mesh on my 08' WK and loved it...thanks for the pics!

Thanks man...I appreciate it ...I actually bought that upper and lower mesh grill from CarID..I plan on using the upper one off mine when I swap out to the SRT body kit I have ..I think it does look a lot better than the plastic ones jeep makes

See here : T-Rex® - Jeep Grand Cherokee 2014 Sport Series Black Mesh Grille

its easy to install...you just need to remove the front bumper cover and it attaches from the inside

It sounds scary to remove the bumper cover but I've done it like 5 times now and can get the nose off in like 10 minutes or less

You are right it does "seem" scary, but I did my 08' front 10+ times and have have taken the 14' SRT off twice...you are so right, it becomes easier each time!

Thanks for the link to the mesh...I like the T-Rex products so this has now been added to my growing list of "to-do mods"

Does anyone have the part numbers for the "low profile" rails? How difficult would the removal/install be?
