I am not sure from memory. I will give you a side by side comparison pic. I can also take a quick measurement of each. Unfortunately it will have to wait until the weekend because I am out of town on business.

Re: Latest Mod (in progress) 2008 WK 4.7

Update on the project. Got the Side Skirts installed today. Still not done with the Front piece due to painting mesh. Should be done soon.

Here is a comparison of the new front compared to the old. I took some measurements too:

Side by side comparison
2011-03-26_11-48-55_130.jpg


Some difference in the end piece. As stated above, the body kit has a more agressive edge
2011-03-26_11-49-15_47.jpg

Here you can see the difference in depth. This shows how far the body kit extends back under the jeep compared to the stock front lip
2011-03-26_11-49-23_695.jpg

This is the body kit measured for the part extending back under the jeep.
2011-03-26_11-50-02_344.jpg

Stock piece measured like the above pic.
2011-03-26_11-50-25_857.jpg

Looking down at the stock piece to get a perspective of how low the lip goes.
2011-03-26_11-50-58_620.jpg

Same view, but looking down at the body kit.

2011-03-26_11-52-28_398.jpg

Body kit is done and installed.

Always a good feeling cutting into brand new parts. Had to cut out holes in the body kit to accept the tabs in the chrome overland trim piece.
2011-03-26_16-50-16_64.jpg

Here are the cut holes

Lower mesh painted and installed
2011-03-26_17-12-02_129.jpg

Pic of mounting the mesh
2011-03-26_17-12-58_11.jpg

The rest of the pics are the final product. Still needs detailed.

The mesh is from McNichols. It is aluminum with 2 squares per inch. I paid $58 shipped for a 3ftx4ft piece. I can send the item number a little later.

Re: Latest Mod (in progress) 2008 WK 4.7

The jeep looks awsome! I have the same model and was thinking about switching to the srt8 front but ager seeing yours i think i might follow in your steps. Did the bumper include the chrome strip? The side rails look just like the srt8 ones as well. Awsome mod, and thanks for your help with the mesh as well.
