Honestly my plans always seem to change :lol:. I mean Im pretty sure Im done with external mods (thanks to the wheels). I want to take care of the body work (rear bumper thanks to some A hole, header panel and reinforcement bar none of which are really visible but I personally notice it) and change out my drivers side fog (Photo 9 shows the water in it, its been like that since I went offroading, had it cleaned out by Mario but it came back :eek: lol. I might just focus on audio/visual. Im thinking changing out door speakers since I may have torn the surround on my front passenger although Im not sure, it sounds fine at some volumes but when it gets louder, it has a rattle sound. I also want interior LEDs (white) and change the dash lights to blue (some are burnt out). After that I think Im done although there is always subs lol. Oh I also want weatherliners :lol:

Man you need to introduce your jeep to some bubbles. LOL looks good though.
lol Actually I think my Jeep hasn't been washed for about a month (Brake Dust, pollen, etc) :eek: The most cleaning it has seen was from the rain :(. I'll give her a good wash next weekend though.

Thanks for the compliments guys. The wheels honestly blew me away. I meant to get SRT reps but got screwed over buying used (Sellers would back out or just cut off all contact :lol:). So I saw an ad about these wheels (not exact ones) on another forum and I was like :eek:. I did a search and found a local seller but the problem was the ad was over a year and half old :p. But I said f-it let me ask and next thing you know he tells me he still has them (he had a WJ but traded up to an 06 SRT) Met up and bought the wheels for a steal, referred him to here but I don't think he joined up.

bout time yo!!! looks great Charlie!!!! what about blacking out the headlights, like what Hector did?
I actually thought about a few ideas like that, considered tinting the parking light area. Also, thought about just tinting the main headlight area and leaving the parking light area clear. And ofcourse I thought about tinting the whole thing (2 different tint levels though) but I noticed Daniel isn't tinting anymore but I still have the idea lurking, we'll see :jump:.

Meh... It's aiight I guess. The black is killing it for me. Thought it was a Chevy Exuinox at first. LOL J/K but I really am feeling those wheels. Glad to see the projectors are still holding up.
Hahaha let the haters hate :lol: Freakin white Jeeps :D.

NSFW: language


The projectors are holding up but took a ton of silicone, I'll really know when its winter again lol I had no choice putting them back on my OEMs got ruined. Apparently a socket wasn't in flush and when it rained it went in the lights :eek: Whatever, in the future if I decide I may get another set of projectors the seal em up with silicone and tint them up.

hey chuck mind if i ask a favor of you... mind taking a pic of your exhaust system(under vehicle) i wanna check something :)
Here you go, check out the first & second page, there should be some decent underbody shots. Now don't use my exhaust as a perfect template because frankly its mounted horribly (muffler is actually angled). I bought this used and was missing the clamp and I had it welded by a body guy :rolleyes:. But it seems fine to me so :thumbsup:

Damn if you cant afford a car wash, you're in bad shape. Shall we set up a help Chuck foundation? Or maybe get you a fresh piece of cardboard to write on and a new cup to panhandle for change on the streets/subway? :D LOL jk
lol :lol: Its bad man, go figure these truck problems occur when I don't have the cash :confused:. I wouldn't mind a Chuck Foundation.

Chuck, which LEDs do you have in your parking lights? I was looking was newer ones and I have seen pics with yours that are bright as all hell. Also, did you install resistors to stop the hyper flash? If so, did you do it on just the 3157 bulbs or on the 194 ones on the outsides too?

Thanks.
Hey Paul, I bought these V-LEDs sometime last year. I did infact use resistors solely for the 3157 bulbs (its required otherwise you will get hyperflashing):

http://www.v-leds.com/BlinkerWarning-Fix/Turn-Signal-Fix/6-OHM-50W-2-BULB-LED-p4783296-1-2.html

The 194's didn't need resistors, I bought a spare pair thinking I would need them :eek:.

Bulbs I went with:

60 LED Dual Turn Signal if you want White for parking lights and Amber for signals
http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/.../TYPE-2-DUAL-COLOR-CHANGING-p5846227-1-2.html

Bulb I most likely went with for the middle running light:
http://www.v-leds.com/Interior-LED/...e-LED/2-V-LEDS-WHITE-194-13-p6638587-1-2.html

Bulb for corner most bulb since I didn't want bright corners since they do blink (At night these are actually pretty powerful for a 5 LED bulb):

http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/...te-LED/2-HID-6K-WHITE-SMT-5-p4481039-1-2.html

Im pretty sure they have since come out with bigger, better, and brighter LED bulbs. If you have the stock light housing these (or anything similar or better) would be perfect because the reflector smooths the light and it makes it look uniformed and soft, the projectors doesn't smooth out the light output but it looks crisp.

I'll be honest, look into the company autolumination for LEDs, some members here have noted that the V-LED's which advertise the bulb as a 60 LED bulb, is infact split into 30 white and 30 amber while autolumination dual turn signals I believe are 60 all around. Theres nothing wrong with V-LED at all, I love them and would recommend but Im just giving you the heads up from what I've heard. Definitly buy the resistor though. Let me know if you have any other questions. :thumbsup:

Yeah I do have this mod I just wanted to upgrade and get resistors which is why I asked. The bulbs i have now are horrible I think I paid about $30 for all of them combined lol
Oh def do the upgrade ifs its not autolumination or V-LED. I honestly love the light output. Frankly its not much of a concern considering I have HIDs so light isn't the problem :lol: but the signals are clearly visible. I'd look into the newer bulbs, they seem to have better light output than mine.

Just installed the Mopar Kicker door speakers in order to replace my stock infinity speakers (one was blown). Sound Clarity FTW. Didn't take photos of that process since I was rushing to finish before the brief downpour we had here. These were literally plug and play. Zero modification needed. Still have to install tweeters but its too hot out. From what I heard the mounting area needs to be altered and wires need to be cut. Anyway here are some recent photos of my Jeep (a bit cleaner), nothing from the exterior changed. These photos are not taken by me but by Fabian and Davy. One thing about these wheels depending on the angle they look light and other times it looks dark. I love it :thumbsup:
