Help a new Jeep owner?
 
Hey JeepGarage,

I just got my first Jeep, and wanted to join this community as it has been incredibly helpful in learning about my Jeep. It's a GC 07' Overland Diesel WK, and I love it, but I wanted to make it better, just add a few minor mods, and I was hoping someone with more experience could help :)

I know by driving the 2010 A4, that LEDs do have a wow factor, as long as they are tasteful. For my Jeep, I was looking at the Oracle Halo Kit, has anyone bought these? Can you control whether to turn them on or off? Is it a total light replacement, or just the housing? Are they quality? Link below.

Also I was looking at the headlight accents by STILLEN, that cover the ambers on the front, and make the front a little cleaner. I would probably get these, but ideally (not sure if it exists) I would like to get accents for the top of the light, so that the roundness is cutoff and it looks a bit more like the new 2011 GC, does anyone understand what I mean? Link to the accents below.

Lastly, I was considering a set of rims. I looked for SRT8 rims, and found out that legit ones cost a small fortune from Mopar. I prefer a lower profile tire, preferably all season tires. The A4 I drove had 2' Pirelli runflats (I think?) - how much would similar tires be for an equivalent setup? Do I need 20' with 2' tires? And how much would this setup cost? I saw these rims on a matte black srt8 on this forum I think, the car looked gorgeous. Giovanna Dalar-5. Link below.

If anyone could give me some tips or information, I'd definitely appreciate it. I'm new to forums, sorry if I broke any rules or posted in the wrong spot. Great to be a part of JeepGarage! I look forward to some replys :)

-Alex

for the halos and rims do a search of the forum as there are hundreds of pages about the topics. srt reproductions would be your best bet on rims, look exactly the same but much cheaper.

no offense, but i think that would look kind of wierd. the headlights match up with the hood line so it would be pretty awkward looking. since you have a 07 with a flat bottom it would look even stranger.
