Just purchased a new Jeep , I love it

Just picked up a 2011 Grand Cherokee Limited w/ a Hemi. I haven't had a Jeep since I turned in a 1998 Laredo. I wanted an Overland but couldn't afford the addition $70 a month. That's Ok because I love my Limited. I bought a demo with running boards already on it. I had them switch the wheels for the 20s for a $1095. I've tinted the windows and changed most of the lights with leds.
  • Replacing the front turning signal with the chrome covered amber lights. Replaced the lights inside the liftgate to white leds.
  • Replaced all 4 reverse lights with white leds.
  • Replaced DRL with white leds.
  • Replaced rear turning signals with leds, but I am going to switch them back because the hyper flashing is getting on my nerves.
Finally, chrome fog light bezels are on the way.

Welcome to JG!

The hyper flashing on your turn signals should be fixable if you want to put in some effort. There are multiple threads on here regarding it. You might have to try a couple different resistors before you find the right one as I'm not sure if anybody has done it on a wk2 yet and posted what they used.

You have done a lot the Fog light bezels are a nice piece easy to put on and dress up the front. In my option the limited is nicer then the overland, that interior would get old in a hurry.

Re: Just purchased a new Jeep , I love it

Thanks for the welcomes. Will add pictures later. Just replace fogs with white 18 led bulbs. Pain to do.
Chrome Bezels were nice what a cheap way to up grade.
