Did you swap the calipers/rotors as well, or are those covers? I just purchased SRT Spider Monkeys for my Hemi Summit, annnnnd now I hate the look of factory HD brakes - looking at BBK's!

Seems to me like he swapped more then just some parts. Look like a completely different vehicle.

Basically i took some prewired RGB leds. removed the stock ones, stuck the rgb ones in place. To power them i wired the controller and used the 12v power from the outlet in the cubby.

I can work on a write up with pictures and stuff if anyone would like. I only got half of the truck done so far.

Take your time - I would definitely like to see a write-up. Looks great.

It does, but as someone noted previously, it does have halogens which makes me curious...

We're talking about headlights and 2012 SRT8s and newer all have Bi-Xenon HID headlights. His Laredo still has halogens, but went from 2011 halogen headlights to 2014 halogen headlights. His whole front end is now a 2014 version.

Enough of this guessing...

86iroc305,

Can you please clear this up for us? What exactly did you do?

Thank you.

My vote is you replaced all the parts with "A New Car!"
