That really looks great. I am going to plasti-dip my window trip this weekend and hopefully it turns out good.

If I may say so, I think your rig would look even more bad a$$ if you de-chromed the door handles.

Yep, that's the next thing on the list. I've considered a few options and think the best thing to do is just get them replaced with Bright White handles to match. Will be expensive though.

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

Those wheels look so much better blacked out. Normally I don't like white as a color, but yours is done just right. Also, in the WK2 SRT8 section there is one that is just out of this world. Great looking rig..

Your truck looks fabulous. I love the white and black, what I have on my GTR. I am jealous of your rock rails LOL. They are backordered until 2014 nationwide.

I'll post some pics of my tint job tomorrow.

In other news, my rims came in:



These things are so sweet. I love the finish on them. They are also stamped made in Germany.

What are those wheels from? They look awesome.

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

They are right from the MOPAR catalog for the grand cherokee. Freaking german made, beautiful wheels and I got them for a paltry $227 each! But you can't buy them, I must be special. JK!

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

Got the wheels installed. Measuring paid off. These are the largest tires (33") that can be put on this vehicle. At full steering lock, they just brush up against the wheel well liners. Those have some flex to them, so no big deal. Plus I have 1" wheel spacers inbound.

Pictures also show the 3M Crystalline tint used on all glass.







The matte black wheels contrast a bit with the flashy Summit chrome, but the chrome will be dealt with!

Well played, well played indeed. Just out of curiosity, are those 17's?

These wheels should be 18".

I REALLY like what I see. I'm planning on switching the 20" of the Summit with these wheels as well once I pull the trigger on the Summit. So far. I haven't seen them on a MY14 Summit. Cool!

They take the majority of the "overchromed"-feeling off the vehicle. These wheels (and painted mirror-caps instead of chrome) will do A LOT to reduce the amount of chrome on the Summit to a tasteful level.

Ah, so those are the BLACK wheels..

I thought you might have opted for the grey ones because your Jeep is grey, too.

But you can't go wrong with the balck because the tires are black, too.

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

They are the 18" Jeep Night Fever, bought them here:

Jeep Grand Cherokee Wheel - 18" Night Fever Black (Part No: 82212377): MoparOnlineParts.com

(Mods edit out if links aren't allowed).

These are awesome wheels for $221!

18" Wheels with 33" tires allows a nice side-wall for off-roading, allowing me to air down etc and also gave me over 1" extra ground clearance. Stock summit tires are 30.5".

This wheel and tire combo also drives really nice on the road and are quieter than I thought they would be. Steering feels just a little more loose, but nothing terrible.

Overjoyed with the swap out, and to find the tire will fit in the stock storage compartment (without air) makes everything that much easier.
