Decided to change up the wheels and brakes a bit. Now I know everyone does all black but that's the look I've wanted to do since before I bought the srt.

Looks good bro, i would also add the stillen headlight covers in black to get rid of the egg yolk amber, if legal in tour state

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Deleted my external whip antenna and installed an internally mounted amplified antenna. Still messing with the plug for the fender, I'm not in love with the current solution...ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1436494414.267413.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1436494438.613297.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1436494486.602792.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1436494523.338838.jpg

Well first thing you could do is paint the plug to match body color.

Ya, once I'm satisfied with a permanent solution I'll probably paint to match. I'm just not sure what that'll be yet. Knowing me I'll probably go back and forth for a while and eventually end up removing the fender and filling it from the inside and finish and repaint the entire fender...

That's how I would do it. Fill it with body filler sand it all down and just paint it. Would look extremely clean. If you are very lucky you may be able to find a new fender online without a hole for the antenna.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I installed some Run Cool Hood Louvers today. All in all, these were really straightforward and it took only four hours to do! There is more info in my build thread if anyone is interested on how I did it!

Thanks! I was so worried it would look uneven and in the first pic, I thought it looked a little off, but I measured it up, it's even down to under a half of a centimeter!

Looks good, what was the cost for the set? Are you leaving the insulation off or are you planning to trim to fit and reinstall? I'd be curious to see how they handle the rain, looks like they'll allow direct water exposure. Let us know when you see a rain day or wash it, I'm just wondering how much water you'll get passively. Was this motivated by a need for cooler under hood temps, aesthetics, or a little of both? Personally I'd clean up the cut on the underside to give it the nice finished look, I'd use some rubber U channel stripping, the results will look factory and you'll love it! The material I'm talking about, for example, comes with Bushwacker fender flares to install on the edge of the flares where they meet the body to give it the finished look and protect the paint, just in case you want to see what I'm referring to.
