Talking VTEC to HEMI convert

Hello JeepGarage members my name is Gene! New 2013 Grand Cherokee altitude owner after years of driving only imports and loving every minute of it. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia so I've grown up seeing plenty of lifted And muddy Jeeps in my day and guess its finally rubbed off on me. Currently live in Chicago, IL. Want to thank you guys for being such an informative forum.

Mods so far have been
20% tints on front to match rest of car
Blacked out all lights in rear
Mopar CAI
Added HID headlights. (no projectors yet I know shame on me..)
Changed all interior lights minus visor (cant find which bulbs go there) to white LEDS (map lights are still stock. Apparently nobody has been able to clearly describe or find out how these can be changed out on a 2013 WK2?)
Reverse lights to LED

Planned future mods..
Proper HID retrofit
SRT8 pedals and steering wheels. SRT8 hood if possible
Clear front bra
Blacked out front jeep emblem and grand Cherokee emblems
Change out ugly turquoise color ambient interior lighting to blue/white... If ever possible. Apparently it's been done but a fire started in this persons Jeep?
Lift and larger tires
Gibson exhaust (awaiting forum members' final results)
Diablo tuner
Whatever else can turn my hemi into a beast!!
