Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Is part #4 "Cover Support" different for a 2008 SRT? (I have a 2007)

If it is, I need to get a new one, anyone got a part number for the 2008-2010 one?

I was trying to put my bumper on and yea, seems like they might have changed it a little.

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

I just picked up 07 SRT front and rear bumpers for my 06 Overland. I understand they "almost" bolt right on, but I need some bumper absorbers?? for the rear and supports?? for the front. Can someone enlighten me on exactly what I actually need? The bumpers came complete, but with no mounting hardware. I've been through this and the "How To" threads, and still have a few questions. I also haven't been under the WK yet to scope things out. Thought I'd check here first.

1. One post indicated that the wiring and plugs for the rear bumper lights is on the existing wire loom. Is that true? If so, where are they hiding?
2. The rear "bumper absorbers (I guess there are two) are different than the standard WK? Do I need these or what's the best thing to do???
3. Can some/all of the supports/extensions be fabricated or should I go to the dealer or justforjeeps? Exactly what would I need to fabricate or purchase? Part numbers?
4. I am planning to modify the mounting for the stock hitch. Anyone done this? Looks like I might just need a heavy duty extension plate to lower it. Any thoughts, or has anyone done this?
5. What has some that have done this mod. done with the lower plastic SRT grill? Change, leave it alone, modify, paint a contrasting color, remove, or ?
6. Is everything going to be fairly obvious when I set them in place, or will I encounter any mysteries on how/what to do to properly secure them?
7. Are the red rear SRT lights just running lights (I noticed single filament bulbs),brake lights, or ??
8. Any other hints or parts needed or recommended?

The bumpers are being painted now, so I should be installing within the week, unless I need other stuff. I appreciate any help, or shortcuts.

the absorder is the actual "bumper" what you have are the covers.
1. it is in the trailer wiring under the vehicle, i think all grand cherokees have them but may not be factory activated unless you have a tow hitch. you will need to buy a harness from lips to connect the lights to the trailer wiring.

2. the rear srt absorber is wider than the stock absorber, you need to buy one.

3. the stuff is not that expensive, have your dealer order it.

4. you can buy a lower hitch to mount on it.

5. most leave it black to match the upper grille.

6. its all plug and play so it is very obvious.

7. they dont work without the harness from lips. they will work as brake lights and turn signals.

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Thanks, Swede. I think the absorber is there. Does it look like a removeable plastic framework? In any case there is more there than just the cover. Is there a cover on the front too? I didn't pay much attention to it, so I am not sure if it has the same type arrangement.

I understand that the stock SRT hitch is rated much lower (~3000 lb. vs. ~7000 lb.) than the stock WK one. I would like to keep the higher rated unit, so I may just build a meaty adapter for it.

If I can't find the wiring I'll probably tap into either the running or brake lights. Thoughts?

The stock lower grill is kind of cheesy looking, that's why I asked. Don't know what I'll do yet. I am going to keep the stock Overland grill though.

What is "Lips"? Do you have a web address, and do I need part numbers or ?

How do I know which extensions/supports I need? Part numbers or visual parts breakdown, so I can see what's there?

Thanks for your help.
