Weather and work hours havent cooperated yet for better pics...will as soon as possible.

To answer Akimball:
1. Added my Puddle Lights to all 4 doors.
2. Replaced Overland hood with SRT hood
3. Replaced " Grille with SRT Grille
4. Replaced " Front bumper cover with SRT Frnt Bumper Cover with daytime running lights
5. Replaced front door sill plates with "Light up" Jeep door sill plates.
6. Replaced " Fender flares with srt...required for bumper cover mating as it turns out. If anyone else is thinking of should know I had mine done at the Jeep dealership Body Shop and the price doubled when completed because they hadnt done one before. Example: Fender flares needed changed to mate with the front bumper ,etc etc. Im still very happy got my srt by conversion and still was cheaper than buying right out. There is one thing Im unhappy about...Since the computer is Overland not SRT it doesnt have programming for the Daytime running lights for the DRL dont work...yet. They advise poss next year when the company makes more replacement parts for the 2012 available they may have the part needed to put the DRL on a hard switch. The part is called a pigtail...a special one just for the srt DRL to run to the computer harness.

Still Im extremely happy with my SRT (6) lol...thats right its the 6 cyl.

Re: My conversion: Overland to SRT (6)
I was thinking of using the puddle lights in the cargo area, but was not sure how bright they would be, your picture seems to suggest the lights are very bright. Are those the ebay ones?

Re: My conversion: Overland to SRT (6)
yes I have some (Military style logos) on ebay my website is They are 5w led cree chip. Very bright at night...gets lots of attention. When you say cargo area, do you mean for the cargo interior...or from the gate when up projecting onto the ground? If the latter I would thing you will get light but the logo wouldnt be so sharp
