Headlamp and other lighting upgrades?
 
Just finished, for now, dressing the SRT under the hood and want to trick out the headlights, light the engine compartment and ????. Anyone have any tips, suggestions, etc? Would appreciate some help getting off the dime.

Yes I have a suggestion: Tread lightly. This isn't a $45k WK1 or a $35k Mustang. Choose tasteful mods. If you're dead set on the show car/fast and furious look then buy an Accord and use it exclusively for that. My honest advice. I cringe when I see the crap people to do these poor things.

I have to agree here. The only thing I would (and did) do is the "CLSTECH headlight ribbon always on harness". (assuming you have a 14)

^ Good point. Speaking of that I need to send my money for it.

I have to agree as well. For me, there is not a lot to do to the aesthetics of this vehicle. Best looking SUV hands down IMO. Then again, it's your ride enjoy it as you see fit.

Point taken. Just wanted to see what was being done. I show the beast at a lot of local shows and then, like today, I take it to the strip and run the crap out of it. Multi-tasking SRT...

I changed my bulbs to Phillips 5000k from xenondepot...they are VERY pricey though

Actually, I added that when I ordered them. Should have photos in a couple of weeks. They are running way behind, as usual. That will be my final appearance addition to the SRT and I have a buddy that's a professional photographer and he is going to do a complete photo shoot of the Jeep and put a page up on dropbox. I will post a link to it as soon as he gets it up there.
