Hello from Pittsburgh

Hi all,

I've been reading posts on here for months, but finally got around to posting today. I have an 06 3.7 WK that I bought new 6 years ago and finally paid off, and now I am getting the mod bug now that I finally own it outright!

I've made a few posts so far regarding a rear power door lock issue and the lack of support for an SCT tuner for my ride. Plan on posting some other stuff up later and posting some pics and installs of any new mods.

So far I have donen't too much, but I have big plans! Thus far I have just installed new StrongArm supports in the hood, hatch (x2) and liftglass (x2). These were super easy, relatively cheap (~$15-20 each on Amazon with FREE shipping), and make a huge difference! I also replaced my radio bezel that had a broken off vent switch. Picked up the replacement bezel on eBay for ~$30. Also bought some Weathertech Slush Mats (~$100 on eBay) and a Weathertech Cargo Mat (~$130 on eBay). Oh, and I removed my faded and worn pinstriping with a 3M eraser wheel (~$25 on Amazon with FREE shipping) on my Bosch corded drill. This couldn't have been easier with the 3M eraser wheel, and I should have done this as soon as I got off the lot, or just had the dealer remove them. Looks much nicer!

I bought a K&N CAI (new on eBay ~$175), but I am waiting until I get a ported TB and some new spark plugs so I can install everything at once.

Aside from that, my laundry list of wanted/needed mods are:

Plasti-Dipped stock wheels or new larger black wheels (18 - 20")
3000K HID fog conversion and replace a cracked fog lens
Tuning - I guess waiting on Diablo support since I cannot do SCT with my PCM
UD Pulley
SeaFoam
Magnaflow exhaust (maybe? thoughts?????)
interior LEDs
center consol LEDs
Saguaro Shackle Mounts
Hitch mount and hitch bezel install
Zaino system (clay, polish, etc) to renew paint job
remove and repaint my chipping and fading roof ravk cross bars with Cargo Bed Liner

then maybe down the road...

Brembo brakes
Lift
who knows what else!



Thanks in advance for your help with my issues and mods! Looking forward to being an active member.
