Hello, and I welcome any advice.

I have an '05 WK with a 5.7L Hemi, silver in color with Navigation and rear entertainment. I debated on trading for an SRT8, but I can't bring myself to give up the hitch because I use it to pull my small fourwheeler trailer. So, instead I think I am going to opt for the wheels and improve performance on the Jeep I have now. From what I've researched I think my plan is to go with staggered comp grey reps in 20", flowmaster muffler, bwoody or eibach springs, intake (not sure what brand), a tuner (also, undecited on brand) and probably 268 comp cam. I am also considering a two tone paint job with factory silver on bottom and dark grey on top. Any horror stories about my plan or cautions would be greatly appreciated. I plan to do a little more research before I buy everything but I hope to have it all done in a month or so. I am a former automotive tech and helicopter tech, changed over to healthcare (I know, boring but it pays well), so I have lots of knowledge on theory of operation and mechanical know how (and I own a shop with a paint booth and 2-post lift which will make things easier!!!!). I have been spying on this site for a while now and I feel like it's my time to give back by posting my progress and any trials and tribulations!
