Customizing my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
 
Hey guys, I'm currently in the planning stages of customizing my Jeep, and was looking for some input and overall advice;

Here is what I'm going for as of now; http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/651/duhjeep.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/651/duhjeep.jpg/

I'm going to use the Paint-dip method for doing my wheels, and maybe in the future sand them down, prime and paint them(Black of course)

Going to try tinting my tailights by myself(found a couple videos/tutorials online) not a complete black out, but a little 'smokey', also doing the 3rd brake light but making that 3 shade black.

I'm currently planning on getting some new headlights(Mine are old, not to mention there are some hidden cracks and water got inside.. pretty much ruined can barely see at night) with Halo LED Halogen lights, they're black and look really nice!

I'm also planning on painting my front grille(currently chrome) black to match the tailights and new headlights and wheels.

What do you guys think?

and,

Can anyone here help me(when the lights do come) with the Halo wiring(tutorial, anything? :D) I plan on eventutally upgrading to HID/Xenon lights when I get the money, and getting a bike rack for the roof to sexy it all up :-P

:thumbsup:

Here's another photoshop of what it might look like :-)

I think I'm going to get the "Smoke" color lights instead of the "Black" ones!

Sounds like a plan! I have some new LED bulbs coming in for my front turn signals, etc. If I remember, I'll get some pics of my wiring on my fronts for ya.

On a seperate note, I've got an OEM 3rd brake light for sale cheap if you're interested or in case yours doesn't come out the way you want it to. Actually, if you decide you want the tails, I'll throw it in at no charge.

By tails I assume you mean tailights?! Wow! please send me some pictures! I'm going to use my 3rd brake light as a dummy for tinting!

Ah ok, I think I'll pass on the tailights I just don't like the way they'll look on my jeep :-D

If my 3rd brake light ends up getting screwed I'll hit you up on the one you've got! Thanks again!

P.S. nice jeep!;)

Update;

Just painted all 4 wheels.. I think I broke my back in the process :-P

Anyways the Paint-Dip is probably the coolest idea ever, thank you so much for providing me with the know how(I forget the author's name :()

Grille : Painted
Wheels : Painted
Lights : WiP
Tailights: WiP

Super happy right now with how the wheels turned out, will put a picture up ASAP!

Nice! No issues with the brakes or calipers?

Not really, figure that the heat, or the movement in itself will remove the adhesive :P

Trial and error I suppose!
