Anyone else with ideas, please, pick apart my WK and let me know your thoughts. Im open for any ideas at this point. You guys are the best, always great advice.
Whats up Timmy. Ride looks amazing as usual.

Here are my suggestions.

1. SRT conversion - Major Money $$$pent. Looks good though.

2. Painted side moldings - Since you have no chrome accents on anything. This
would provide for a much cleaner look. A subtle change, but definitely worth it for your
jeep.

3. Painted Side Mirrors - same reason as above. Subtle but worthwhile in the end.

4. Stillens - I think you got these done already. Purchased from kyle right?

5. Interior Modifications - Cheap but visually appealing.
http://www.justforjeeps.com/doengu4.htmll] This for example.
Or some SRT pedals. Def worth the 44$. I love mine.

The guys prolly have more ideas so I hope they'll chime in.

I do like it all black and think if i got all the chrome moldings it would look compairable. I'd only do all or nothing though, and buying all the chrome trim adds up. And i have those srt pedals, I think it was one of the first things I ordered along with the locking gas cap from J4J. Stillens im picking up wednesday from Kyle. And your are very right, painting the mirrors, handles and door molding would def add alot to it. Im going to paint the stillens myself, see how they come out and maybe do the mirrors.

I have alot going on right now, stereo, these dam dual led's still dont work right, rear brake led's keep blowing a fuse, have to change out my blown strut now. Its like I cant just sit and enjoy it, oh well.

That angle on the upper ball joint is extreme. IMO.

I know, its scarey to me. I forgot to even ask if anyone's looks like that? I just re-torqued them and they are right on the money. Wondering if they need to be upgraded, or do the srt's look like that too?

Re: Do your Eibachs look like this?

And I actually took my car off road this past weekend, went camping way up in Maine. I couldnt go more than about 10mph and I was still being bounced around. I took some pix on my cell and i'll try to get em uploaded on here. The other vehicle we went with was a jacked up ford 350 lifted 4". I parked my car and left it there the weekend, took the truck everywhere instead.
