SRT8 Conversion Time! What First?!
 
Well I finally convinced and got the wife to agree on starting a conversion to give the jeep the srt8 look :) She doesn't care about the speed or balls behind it, and I really don't either we both just love the look :)

Now I know what all is needed and all that, but my question to you guys is where do I start!? There's so many things to get and start saving for, so what should I start with? I was thinking about starting with the black repo rims first, then get a hold of an srt8 exhaust and have that waiting around while i get the bumpers all sorted? I am not going to go all out like some other members and get the seats and gauges and all that, I just want the body style and look. I know I will probably be doing a major suspension overhaul as well, and I guess srt8 stock parts would also be the way to go?

Opinions please!

There is a member here by the name m4xm1l1on (Paul) that his selling his SRT8 exhaust I believe for 350.00 check out the fs section.

Instead of buying it all piece by piece, save all the money it would take to complete the conversion and then you'll think to yourself... "hmmm, I can use these thousands of dollars for a hefty down payment on a real SRT8 with the 6.1l"

But that would require waiting, so I doubt that'll happen, lol.

Check eBay for some of the body pieces... you can usually get some good deals there.
