My Billet Silver 2014 GC SRT Build Thread
 
I didn't want to start a new thread for every little mod, so here goes everything I've done, and will do in one place, hope you enjoy, critiques, opinions and questions are always welcomed.

We started from here (Here being Doha, Qatar):

cheated a little on 756 miles and did my first launch control, 5.1 sec, I was ecstatic (picture of me jumping and screaming like a little girl not included)

1 week after that I got new Factory Reproductions, 22X10 in Satin Black and wrapped them with Nitto 420S, I wanted to keep the same wide profile look, although I prefer to have my rubber painted on the rim, potholes and blowouts (also tire ballooning) were extremely common in my old ride, so I wanted a break from the tire shops, the The 285/40R22 will not rub,they are 13mm taller than the OE 295/45R20

straight to the tire shop

More mods coming soon, dechroming, debadging and a drop, stay tuned :D

Some mods done today, debadged the grand cherokee emblems (but i painted them black just incase I miss them, well I dont) and painted the chrome grill pieces (top and will paint the bottom ones saturday) and the chrome trim pieces, also wrapped the roof black, but will get it rewrapped with a different material on saturday, also saturday I will give my CF splitter a clear coat + install my LamineX rear tail light tint (charcoal black) and that should wrap my mod list up before I hit Europe for a month, then its exhaust, CAI ... I need advise on two things, 1) should i wrap the rear window spoiler or leave it silver 2) should i paint my matte black rims glossy black and get over with it, enjoy

Looks great! I would wrap the top of the spoiler not the whole thing. Scott and Tom did it like that.

Really nice, I plan to get my roof and window trims wrapped soon. I'd paint the wheels gloss black, the mat finish sort of looks like there dirty.

Looks great, I'm planning to get the same set of rims as yours and the CF splitter. But did you manage to turn on the LEDs around the headlights? In my car it only turned on when I turn on the head lights! Any way cool ride and waiting for more modest pics.

lol, Scott its understandable, your car's pictures have been on my iphone since the day I ordered my car, but I'm having the front jeep emblem removed, I really dig the clean front look, and I'm getting 392 badges instead of the grand cherokee ones, this look is becoming rather popular, I need to find something to do to make my car unique, but there's a very thin line between unique and ghetto, so I'm taking my time
