Thanks guys.
well...you would just need the cover...has you already have the parking strip and rear fogs. prices for the SRT rear bumper here in the US are $300-$400 for a used one. I saw one on ebay with slight damage for $215.....and a completely painted to match NEW OEM rear for $799.
The exhaust is easy...but you need to find an SRT owner thats upgraded his stock exhaust and grab his stocker. From there...there is a how to in the how to forum. its fairly simple for a decent exhaust shop.

Thanks Scott, you guys really are quite amazing. Dont know where I would be without your input and advice.

Just a shame we do not have the same network over here in England.

off to spend the rest of my work day to look for a SRT bumper!

But before I go, if i did find a SRT bumper, and left the exhaust as is for now, would that cause any damager? my Jeeps a 06 3.0CRD Overland.

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

you may have to change the routing of your exhaust tip so it doesnt burn ot melt the SRT bumper. The srt bumper sets lower than the stock wk bumper and the exhaust heat will melt it if its close

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Do the SRT disc brakes/calipers fit the non-SRTs as well? Or are they the same size? (which I doubt)

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

I'll search for the thread, but how hard was it? What's the size of the SRTs?

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Its not hard...but expensive...even with used parts...plus you'll have to upgrade wheels as the brembos are much larger. Heres the parts you need...

2-front SRT knuckles(spindles)
front/rear Brembo calipers-loaded and with all bolts
all four SRT rotors
front and rear brake lines with copper washers
2-rear adapter plates

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Whats up peeps! I have a buddy that has a 06 Limited Hemi 5.7. He put 08 headlights, 08 SRT8 Front bumper and 08 Non SRT8 Chrome Grill. He claims that when he closes the hood the front grill sticks out at the bottom. Also said that the bumper has nowhere to attach to at the top, like where you put the clip/screws in, or something like that. Lol.. Has anyone put 08-up SRT8 front bumper kit on there 05-07?? Do you think its the 08 Non SRT8 grill?? Any input would be appreciated! Thanks

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

If the grille sticks out then he doesn't have the tabs lined up right. They keep it from coming out.

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

He needs the 08-10 bumper support they are different than the 05-07 and that is where the bumper fits into...just did mine friday, it is the black plastic piece held on by the 5 13mm bolts
