Beautiful looking Overland.
YES! and thank you

The HP/torque increase is very noticeable. Not needed as the 06 Hemi was plenty powerful but the newer version is really quick.

Re: Bought another GC!

Nice WK! Looks identical to my 2010 Limited. I was looking at the FJ before I found the Jeep I have now and I think I made the right decision. I'd also like to de-chrome some parts of my vehicle but would like to get a 17" wheel in place of the 18". It seem like tire options are limited with the 18" wheels.

Re: Bought another GC!

If you're looking to get rid if your chrome trim let me know- especially the door molding and maybe the window trim

I have already started work on it with some debadging, 1" wheel spacers, shorty antenna, and plastic dip grill. Not happy with that outcome so I'm in search of a black painted grill. I had black roof rails left over from the 06 so I swapped them for the chrome ones.

It had some mods done by previous owner...Bilstein HD's and a Magnaflow catback. Love them both.

I also have on order for it Addco F&R sways, Superchips controller also the BT catch can arrived and hope to find time this weekend to get it installed. Not sure what I want to do with tire and wheel set up at this time, Not really a fan of the Chrome Clads but I do want to stay with 18" so considering wheels off a WK2 maybe.

Anyway really enjoy this site and all the great ideas and info it provides

Mike
Really great !! I like this one !!!
