2000 Grand 4.7 please help me out guys!!
 
Hey guys, just got a 2000 grand Cherokee 4.7. Great deal on it and looking to do little bit of modifications. First off does anyone know if the SRT8 bumper or replica front bumper can fit on this year 2000, and model? Also looking to lower it 1 to 2 inches. Do I need more than just springs? Should I use HR or eunuch springs? Do I need new shocks as well? Any recommendations? try and still keep the soft ride. All im doing this for is look purposes. Also does anyone know where to get good deals on 20 inch replica wheels for good price? Would also like to take off the roof rack. Any questions on fillings all existing holes. Lastly anyone know where to get, some different looking mesh tights? Got to keep this Dibrell just would like to do mesh inserts an something different than the norm that is out there. Recommendations? Lastly anyone have any recommendations on exhaust? nice-sounding? Cheap. All and any help is greatly appreciated I know you all know a lot more than I do on this particular vehicle. Thanks for everything!

seriously doubt the srt facia/bumper will work as you are talking about 2 different chassis designs, something to keep in mind when going with new wheels if you get a wheel that has a very large amount of visibility thru it, youre stock brake discs are going to look very wimpy. Its something that I personally notice on most of the vehicles that have large wheels. To me theres just something that looks stupid about being able to see a "view" thru the wheel to whatever is on the other side of the vehicle
you can try searching for various types of metal mesh on google or whatever and try and make youre own inserts. take the grill off and see whats behind to see if it looks feasible.lots of folks run a magna flow exhaust

this may help,,, https://www.google.com/search?q=best...hrome&ie=UTF-8

and here is some ideas on metal mesh for the grill,,, https://www.google.com/search?q=meta...hrome&ie=UTF-8

The SRT8 bumper is a no go...but you can fit a 2004 front bumper and grille if you want.

Can't really help on lowering springs, although I believe Eibach makes a set. 1" drop would probably not require shocks, but any more than that and I'd be replacing them. Preferably with Bilstiens.

20" SRT reps can be found on this site in the vendor section. I got mine with tires already mounted and balanced from OEWheels. Check them out in the vendor section.

I took my roof rack off. Check out this thread: http://www.jeepgarage.org/f197/roof-...ete-50968.html

I got my mesh from a place called CustomCarGrilles on ebay.

Mr.Grille makes billet inserts too.

As for exhaust, I've had great luck with my stainless Magnaflow. Great sound, but that's subjective.
