Q's about OEM WK body kit
does anyone on here have the painted OEM WK body kit. i want to purchace the oem body kit accessorry from JFJdotcom. i am wondering if it is the same as my textured plastic body kit, just painted, or is it a little larger like the srt. pls only reply if you are certain. if they are the same i will just get mine painted, but if its has the larger sides like the srt then i will purchase the kit.

Re: Q's about OEM WK body kit
The kit is definently larger than the stock wk side skirts and lip. The mopar kit is the exact same as what the SRT comes standard with. You will not be disappointed.

Re: Q's about OEM WK body kit
Like scott said, the side skirts are the srt8 skirts and the front bumper lip is shaped different from the stock, goes straight down then bumps out. The front lip is the same width as the stock, but when you get it painted and because of the shape it looks much better. I paid about $300 to have mine painted, so almost worth getting the ones already painted to match your paint code. Cheaper. When I installed my kit I was careless and just ripped the stock side skirts off ruining the mounting tabs. The front lips comes off simple with just 5 plastic clips with no damage. If I were you i would try to remove everything carefully intact and try to sell the stock parts. I happen to have someone buy my stock front lip for a few bucks cuz she cracked hers off roading or sumthing. might make a few bucks back, just an idea.

TO be honest, I think it would have been inpossible to save the tabs on the stock skirts. I know my tabs were ripped to shreds when I took mine out, not able to salvage them at al. For the front skirt.. very easy, and all tabs still in place.

Re: Q's about OEM WK body kit
If I had another set of hands when doing mine I could of been pulling the skirts straight out while someone else used a screw driver or pliers to push the plastic tabs in together. I bet it can be done without damaging them. But I really didnt care, ended up cutting them in pieces for the trash. Lol. I happen to just change them out and had the parts in my back yard when someone posted they are looking for the front bumper lip, so worked out buy chance. If I didnt see that post I would of tossed it.

Oh, and if they have your paint code for the kit get it, it cost me $300 to have the pieces painted, so added up together the $418 for the price of the primed kit off ebay then paint is over $700. The primed kits are a litle over $500 and $100 more for them painted thru J4J, so def worth it.

Re: Q's about OEM WK body kit
Do it bro, it makes a big difference. I actually bought my wk without knowing it had the kit on it. I searched autotrader for weeks but my eye would constantly get drawn back to this one. After i joined sj i was informed by the members that the previous owner put the body kit on it. The dealership told me they were all like that.

Matt you lucky sunnavagun.

Yeah the look is great, i kinda don't need it now since the jeep is black. Maybe later in the future.

But for you sir, it would be a great mod!
