ItsAJeepThing's Build Thread
 
So its been a year since I bought my WK and sold the WJ. I was shopping around for the JEEP SRT8, but I found this WK at a price that I couldn't refuse. My plan was/is to convert this WK into a White Jeep SRT Clone. So far, I have put a good amount of work and it is looking pretty good. I get a lot of compliments, people just stare at the car as i am passing by. I have a lot of pictures, some are good (dig. cam.) and some are not that good, but not bad (cam. phone).

Information about the JEEP:
Year: 2009
Make: Jeep
Model: Grand Cherokee Limited
Color: Stone White

Lets get started on the pictures and Ill try to put them step by step, from the day I got it.

The 1st day that I got the JEEP.

Parked in the Driveway.

My WJ and WK just hanging out together.

This is my 2 tone interior.

I hate that fishing pole antenna, so I ordered a 3" shorty antenna from ebay. Let me tell you, same quality signal for the radio, but a much better look.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...t/IMAG0426.jpg

Decided to PlastiDip all the chrome badges/emblems just to see how it will look.

Taped everything off and started dipping.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...t/IMAG0425.jpg

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...t/IMAG0424.jpg

The result. Came out pretty good. Black on White theme.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...9/IMAG0428.jpg

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...t/IMAG0427.jpg

Started ordering parts.
HID from v-leds.com 8000K low/fog
Sylvania Silverstar Chrome 3157 bulbs (blends right in, in the headlights and gets rid of the orange/amber turn signal
SRT8 Roof Rails
WeatherTech front/rear Window Visors
WeatherTech front/rear floor mats

Here are the SRT Roof rails and Window Visors that I purchased from 2 members from JG

Installing HIDs in fogs, 1 HID vs 1 Stock. How much of a difference does it make.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...t/IMAG0477.jpg

Parked in the school's garage, only fogs and parking lights are on.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...t/IMAG0490.jpg

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r...t/IMAG0491.jpg

I decided to tint the car. Went with 20% on the front windows to match the rear.

Thank you bro. still have a lot of plans for the car. Being on this forum almost 24/7 and seeing a lot of sick jeeps over here, gives me ideas on the next mods and then my pocket starts crying =]

looks good Aslan!
how do you like the K&N? im deciding between that and the Airraid for the future.

Re: ItsAJeepThing's Build Thread
 
I like it, but I was expecting a little more from it. After the installation, I was expecting a nice sound from it, that is why I got the 77 series (metal piping instead of plastic), but unfortunately no sound at all. I dont know how the other intakes sound on a 3.7, if they even make any sound. I have a couple of friends with Infiniti G37/FX37 (3.7 l engines) Lexus GS350 (3.5l engine) that have 77 KnN intakes on their cars and they sound like a beast.
