Looking to do upgrades on '08 Laredo X 4.7L

I'm currently stationed in Korea, my car is back in the states and I'm looking at replica SRT8 rims and halo projector headlights and fog lights if anyone has any recommendations

Re: Looking to do upgrades on '08 Laredo X 4.7L

What up man. Thanks for serving! I did my time (USAF 95-99) but got stuck in Texas for all 4....no TDY's. As far as the lights bare concerned, I have an 08 Limited and have settled with these for my halo projectors http://turbometal.com/lighting/proje...hts-black.html. Just be sure to look and make sure they will fit your year...cuz all these online sites get that stuff all mixed up. I previously ordered (says they fit 05-08 models) and received these and look at the bottom...they are flat without the two humps and wouldn't fit with my bumper on. http://www.tunersdepot.com/Lighting/...okee-4760.html

I went with 5000K hid for my low beams and 3000K hid for my fog lights.

Also be careful with the LED tail lights. Anything that says they are plug and play for 05-08 are not. The wiring harness is compatible for 05-06 only. 07 and 08 will have to do modifications on the wiring to make fit.

Hope this helps a little....Adam

Re: Looking to do upgrades on '08 Laredo X 4.7L

For the Replica rims there are 2 companies that sell them, Factory Reproductions (vendor) and Oewheels.com.

For the halo projector headlights, im assuming u want halos with the headlights projectors? Here's on for the 08+ jeeps: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/08-09...Q5fAccessories

IMO, the aftermarket headlights looks a bit off on our jeeps. Ill recommend contacting Flashtech that makes halos rings for our stock headlights. You will have to open the headlights and mount the rings and wire them up. This is a pic of mine with the 6k halos from flashtech.

Re: Looking to do upgrades on '08 Laredo X 4.7L

Hey guys,

Mine is black as well without the chrome trim. I am debating whether to go with the Mambas which are like the wrangler rims with a beefier tire or the SRT8s with not so much of a low profile tire and also side steps/running boards. It sounds from alot of posts people are having to make suspension upgrades to accommodate the SRT rims. I don't want to put more than about 2k into this including rims, tires and projectors. Also as far as the halos are concerned it isn't that big a deal, I would rather have Audi style leds but our headlight designs don't have that look. I am considering going for the "murdered" look with flat black rims or for the gray srt8 rims I saw on the quadratec site. I've contemplated just getting a 2011 but I don't know if I will be staying in the Army and don't want to take on a new car payment when economical future is uncertain.
