Arrow Help a new Jeep owner?

Hey JeepGarage,

I just got my first Jeep, and wanted to join this community as it has been incredibly helpful in learning about my Jeep. It's a GC 07' Overland Diesel WK, and I love it, but I wanted to make it better, just add a few minor mods, and I was hoping someone with more experience could help

I know by driving the 2010 A4, that LEDs do have a wow factor, as long as they are tasteful. For my Jeep, I was looking at the Oracle Halo Kit, has anyone bought these? Can you control whether to turn them on or off? Is it a total light replacement, or just the housing? Are they quality? Link below.

Also I was looking at the headlight accents by STILLEN, that cover the ambers on the front, and make the front a little cleaner. I would probably get these, but ideally (not sure if it exists) I would like to get accents for the top of the light, so that the roundness is cutoff and it looks a bit more like the new 2011 GC, does anyone understand what I mean? Link to the accents below.

Lastly, I was considering a set of rims. I looked for SRT8 rims, and found out that legit ones cost a small fortune from Mopar. I prefer a lower profile tire, preferably all season tires. The A4 I drove had 2' Pirelli runflats (I think?) - how much would similar tires be for an equivalent setup? Do I need 20' with 2' tires? And how much would this setup cost? I saw these rims on a matte black srt8 on this forum I think, the car looked gorgeous. Giovanna Dalar-5. Link below.

If anyone could give me some tips or information, I'd definitely appreciate it. I'm new to forums, sorry if I broke any rules or posted in the wrong spot. Great to be a part of JeepGarage! I look forward to some replys

-Alex

headlight covers
NEW FG headlight covers from SRT Ben

for the halos and rims do a search of the forum as there are hundreds of pages about the topics. srt reproductions would be your best bet on rims, look exactly the same but much cheaper.

Re: Help a new Jeep owner?

no offense, but i think that would look kind of wierd. the headlights match up with the hood line so it would be pretty awkward looking. since you have a 07 with a flat bottom it would look even stranger.
