looks good so far! i want some srt seats
They were a steal actually, I found original (euro) rims and the seats from a totalled one with 8 miles on the odo, the seats were still covered in plastic... 650 usd fot the 2
2 rims were dented wich I had repared, I mount them today.

First impression of the SRT suspension... WWWOOOOOOOWWWW that's difference in handling

Re: Lets (try) to kick some hemi a$$ :)

Looking forward to see what you do with the DPF.. I have been trying to find a way to delete it for a while now. 1800 for the turbo isn't bad either.

Wheels and suspension

Getting 275/40/20 winter tires on a 8 inch euro rim was a real challenge
Next getting rid of the tiny brakes & bumpers & side skirts.
Bumper is also a challenge, I purchased a used 08 one, presented it today , well it needs some welding & cutting

But now first New Year and a week holidays, we are off skiing in France till 8/1 so no updates

See you all next year

Re: Lets (try) to kick some hemi a$$ :)

Awesome build. Cant wait to see more progress. Not completely a fan of the Euro 8" SRT wheels but you cant beat that price.

Did the 07 S limited WK have the srt styled seats? I know in the US the newer S limited had SRT8 seats with out the srt8 logo.

I also like your stock wheels alot. It seems that Jeep put 7 and 10 spoke wheels stock on the WK but we never got those wheels offered in the US.

As far as the front bumper goes, you will need to change to an 08 grille and you can either change to 08 headlights or you might be able to trim the "humps" off under the headlights area to make it fit but you WILL need the Grille either way.

07 S limited had original seats

I can sell you the wheels if you want

Actually I am using the original grill
The trimming doesn't work, I tried.
I am cutting the original bumper half an inch further then the grill and headlights, the the same thing on the srt bumper, then we weld the plastic together and thatha, 07WK 07Headlights 07 Grill & modified 08 bumper
I'll take pics in progress...
