WK Parts List: Please Throw in your two cents

Well after noticing a few things myself and with the seconded advice from other members on here, I've decided to go ahead and start a little list of things that I would like but am hard pressed to find. So If you know of any good site, make, model and/or price of said items that I'm looking for please feel free to chime in and help a brother out.
  1. Tinted LED Tails-I have found a set online but the LED part looks white. I'm not sure if it's the view of the product or what but is there white or red LED tails?
  2. Shorty Antenna
  3. Halo headlights/ foglights- Red preferrably
  4. HID-Heads and fogs if they're out there
  5. Rims-I've seen the thread with the prices and site, but if anyone wants to throw it out there again it'd help me keep everything on one page
  6. CAI- Found an assload, but don't know which is best
  7. Tuner/Programmer
  8. Suspension-Best places and parts for lifting or lowering
I think that's about it for right now. Those are just a few things I'd like to start on

Re: WK Parts List: Please Throw in your two cents

1) If you get the ones on ebay I would suggest to get them in red and have Daniel vendor here tint them for you cuz he does an amazing job

2) Autozone has them for $8.00 I think

3) flashtech halos (Robpp, Escape, and HEMIBeast have them you can look at their thread of installation. If you want to paint ur housing black (NIFTY TM (R) (C) black out mod he can do Halo installation too)

4) If you're on a budget go with Xentec excellent quality and customer service from Tony (tcm glx) or go with xenon depot for the best

5) SRT8 reps or viper Replicas both are probably the nicest check this thread out these rims I wanna get but they are only over seas and not in the US yet

http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=3862

6) Don't know what engine you have but there are tons of options out there ...

5.7 - Bwoody hands down
4.7 - Bwoody is producing something right now
3.7 - Irf has a thread on where you can buy it for 183 K&N I got it myself too

7) Again depends on the engine

8) If you want an amazing low drop ... go with Bwoody (road magnet) springs.

I bought mine from road magnet and it came out to 345 but it comes in blue

if you want them powder coated get them from bwoody they're having a sale now it's going for 375 in any color

shocks got mine from ebay seller thepartsladi (bilstein HD shocks all around) came out $300.00 total

Check out Scott's complete suspesnion thread it's a sticky on the forum

Hopefully that'll help you out

Ebay's got LED tails, just be sure to check that they fit your specific model.

I got my shorty antenna from Advance Auto Parts for $5


I really like moneen's fogs! http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=4514
I think his fogs are the ones from here: http://www.ruggedridgeoffroad.com/Lighting%20Flyer.pdf

Be careful with halo headlights. i was considering getting a pair but reviews were mixed - low quality with leaks to ppl who had no problems. Many think they look too much like ricer lights.

Don't remember the name of the place I got my rims but they were the cheapest deal I could find anywhere at $570 for all 4 with everything I needed included. Just got to bluff that you've found a better deal and they'll give you a great price (did this with mine and when we priced my friend's rockstars). Number's 909-337-6596

I built my own CAI using PVC and it works great. Here's a link to my build thread:
http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=5945

Match that CAI with a ported/polished TB from Flyin'Ryan (a vendor here) and a high flow exhaust and you should see some nice power and mileage gains.

You can't go wrong with a Superchips Programmer. Many suggest stacking it with a Diablo. I wish there was a tuner for my 3.7...

Suspension...OME is great, Superlift is top of the line but very expensive, I like my RK but its similar in price to the OME with only as much lift as the BBs. Bwoody lowering springs have a good rep. Bilstein and OME have the best shocks for lifts, OMEs are 2'' longer than stock while Bilsteins are stock length.

Re: WK Parts List: Please Throw in your two cents

One question about the shorty antennas I just thought of is will it take away from the radio and nav? I've got an REC nav unit that apparently still has some satelite radio left and I'd hate to lose noticeable reception for looks.
