Intake and exhaust with my mods see here (post 14): http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=3267

SRT8 body is going to be very costly. To change the bumper you will also need to buy a dual exhaust setup. Don't forget the body parts don't come painted.

Tuner- predator for the fact you can disable the MDS, which is really noticeable with a aftermarket exhaust. It was annoying while in 4 banger mode. If you have a 07-08 model your safe, 05-06 is a ?.

If you buy srt8 wheels, get the same size for front and back. Meaning
4-20x9 or 4- 20x10. This way you can rotate your wheels. The srt8's can never rotate since the front are smaller then the back.

Good luck, just research before buying.

Come home safely!

Guess I am just cranky that I don't have the $$$ to do anything else to mine. The next performance mods I would do is the cams and headers but that would 1) void my engine warranty 2) get my head cut off by my wife for doing #1. 3) I don't have that kind of money so...

I already blew most of my "play" money on my current mods.

If I had the money I would paint it a different color (not thrilled with graystone), do the heads and cams (http://estore.websitepros.com/802805...Categories.bok )
and maybe turbo it(http://www.northcoastturbosystems.com/).

one can dream right?

BINGO! The SRT cladding looks nice but won't make the Jeep faster. Now the SRT suspension parts will help handling, which will let you go faster while still in control but those weren't in your original post.

I highly suggest the Bwoody CAI, Diablo w/cmr tune, ported TB by fastman, 3" catback(mbrp seems good), 180 tstat by Jet, SRT or WK bilsteins with the lowering springs of your choice and that depends on what drop you want. you can do 1" to almost 3"....and a set of the SRT or Viper replicas with performance tires, SRT front and rear sway bars, Bwoody WK endlinks, slotted r1 rotors with your choice of pads, SRT sideskirts...and that about does it!!!!
