Weather and work hours havent cooperated yet for better pics...will as soon as possible.

To answer Akimball:
1. Added my Puddle Lights to all 4 doors.
2. Replaced Overland hood with SRT hood
3. Replaced " Grille with SRT Grille
4. Replaced " Front bumper cover with SRT Frnt Bumper Cover with daytime running lights
5. Replaced front door sill plates with "Light up" Jeep door sill plates.
6. Replaced " Fender flares with srt...required for bumper cover mating as it turns out. If anyone else is thinking of this...you should know I had mine done at the Jeep dealership Body Shop and the price doubled when completed because they hadnt done one before. Example: Fender flares needed changed to mate with the front bumper ,etc etc. Im still very happy got my srt by conversion and still was cheaper than buying right out. There is one thing Im unhappy about...Since the computer is Overland not SRT it doesnt have programming for the Daytime running lights for SRT...so the DRL dont work...yet. They advise poss next year when the company makes more replacement parts for the 2012 available they may have the part needed to put the DRL on a hard switch. The part is called a pigtail...a special one just for the srt DRL to run to the computer harness.

Still Im extremely happy with my SRT (6) lol...thats right its the 6 cyl.

I was thinking of using the puddle lights in the cargo area, but was not sure how bright they would be, your picture seems to suggest the lights are very bright. Are those the ebay ones?

yes I have some (Military style logos) on ebay my website is blackenwolf.com. They are 5w led cree chip. Very bright at night...gets lots of attention. When you say cargo area, do you mean for the cargo interior...or from the gate when up projecting onto the ground? If the latter I would thing you will get light but the logo wouldnt be so sharp

The factory cargo light on the wk is awful, even after swapping to an led bulb. My thinking is to remove the factory cargo bulb holder with one of the puddle projector units. There are quite a few of these led projector puddle lights on ebay, i just need to find one that fits the best into the factory cargo light hole and is easiest to wire.

That sounds interesting just remember after a few feet any logo type light wont appear crisp. A plain type,no image, Puddle light might do it though...those 3w are really bright. Be careful of the 5w...the 2 we tested were prone to burn out easily

so Im getting Green LEDs in the front grille (upper and lower), will post when done on April 8th.
Found someone that can:
1. tie in the srt DRLs to my Overland DRLs so both on at same time.
2. Replacing Overland DRL bulbs with canbus led white as well as the SRT Foglamps.

ok...green leds look awesome...indeed the overland DRLs CAN tie into the SRT DRLs perfectly allowing both to come on together contrary to what the local jeep dealer bodyshop told me. The only issue is the new canbus white led in the overland DRL ..well lets just say "the drapes dont match the carpet". So the shop is looking for a better match of white led to match the srt drl...stay tuned for photos!
