Last but certainly not least, I upgraded my fog lights to the XenonDepot LED kit to match my low-beams. XenonDepot lighting is no joke either! My chrome door handles were also replaced with body-colored OEM handles from JustForJeeps to almost complete the de-chromed look. Most notably, I had the Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs installed to give her a slight drop. The final pic is how she sits currently!

Your ride looks great! I normally like the chrome trim but your pics are making me rethink that.

Are you satisfied with the XD LED fog lights? Are they close in color? Your pic makes it look like the fogs are a bit more white. Could be my computer screen.

I’ve been researching fog light options for mine and am toying between the SRT LEDs or another solution like XD.

This looks great too! Did you spray the SEM paint straight onto the plastic or did you treat it first?

All I did was wash it down with Dawn dish soap, then wiped with rubbing alcohol, sprayed 2 coats of adhesion promoter, then the SEM. It's been almost 2 years and no signs of fading, chipping, or discoloration at all.
Cool! Like I said it looks great. I might give this a shot. I only hesitate because once you start you can’t go back.

I appreciate it! I love the XenonDepot LED fogs, but I will say that you are right about them being a touch whiter than the XenonDepot HID lows. Not quite as apparent in person but if I could do it over I would’ve bumped my HIDs up to the next color temp. The difference is minimal enough that I’m not going to unless a bulb burns out or something. Other than that, output is fantastic on both kits and I’m very impressed with the amount of usable light my Jeep throws now.

For those still interested in my build, I installed some new goodies recently! First up was replacing the chrome side roof railings with the OEM gloss black Altitude ones. These were ordered from JustForJeeps and were a very simple swap since I already had the functional roof rails. Excuse my silly window reflection in the pics lol.






My second recent mod was FINALLY installing the gloss black vinyl pre-cut tail light borders sold by @SRTNinjaUSA on Instagram. I can't speak highly enough about this guy, his products, and his obsession with his new Trackhawk. Good stuff. Anyways, this was my first time working with vinyl and I was a bit nervous but I think it turned out pretty great! I may have found a new hobby... haha. Enjoy!

Huge wheels without a BBK installed looks clown-carish. Really need big brakes for this setup to look classy.
Appreciate the feedback. While I agree a BBK would definitely look better, I can't justify shelling out the amount of $$$ for one solely for that subtle touch of "class" it would add. At that price point it simply doesn't make sense adding a BBK for performance purposes on anything other than an SRT or Trackhawk in my personal opinion. Could I benefit from the addition of a BBK? Probably - but I really haven't noticed much of a change in braking since the wheel swap, and as a grocery-getter it seems unnecessary to me

Yo! New here....would've started a private conversation but couldn't figure out how....Just purchased a 2017 limited JGC, coming from a wrangler....a couple of questions about your ride:

1. How did the 1.25" borlas do with the 20" factory rims? Were the tires outside, even or on the inside the top of the wheel well?

2. Did the alignment get everything back to factory spec after the eibach pro springs?

Your new updated ride today is sic, looking to do much of the same!

Thanks!

The 1.25” bora spacers were pretty much dead flush in my opinion! Alignment came out money after installing the Eibachs, it wasn’t an issue at all

A fellow Arkansan!! Very nice ride man, it's a completely different vehicle now, in a good way of course! You've really made a lot of progress. She looks beautiful!

I just gotta..... GO HOGS!!!!
Yessir, us Arkansas guys gotta stick together! I'm from Central AR but I was actually just up in the 479 for the Razorback game... WPS! Thanks so much for the ride compliments, it changed a lot from stock but has changed a lot since my last set of posts. Updates with pics to follow soon, went a different route!

Decided to change things up with the build about a year ago but I'm just getting around to updating this thread! Had a bad snow a couple winters ago and the 22's limited my 4WD capabilities so I went the lifted route. I chose to revert back to the stock 20's and wrapped them in 275/55R20 BFG All-Terrain tires. Had the 2.5" front/1" rear Rough Country lift kit installed to add to the aggressive look. No clearance issues whatsoever and I'm very happy with the outcome! I loved the lowered look on 22's but this setup has proven to be much more practical and still quite comfortable as well.

WPS!!!!!! Fellow Arkansas JGC’er here. Man, love the ride. The 22’s set it off nicely but that new look looks even better. 870 boy in the 501 these days. Keep up the good work.
