Do those headlights look ricey in person? I really like the 1 piece idea.


The kid likes his. We wired up the LED's to a separate switch. I agree with out the chrome grill the chrome trim might stick out and would need to be painted to match the grill. He is talking about painting the grill so... . Anybody got the cladding for the drivers side door they dont need?

Went to the junk yard yesterday, for the past 2 months they didn't have any Grand Cherokees, now they have 4.
Pulled some parts.
Rear hatch cover $12.99 AKA privacy cover.
Molding that goes over the part between the door jam and windshield $6.99 I think it's called a pillar.
Fog lights 3.99 ea.
Oil dip stick $2.99
Molding below windshield the goes over the 2 speakers $19.99

Tried pulling a set of tow hooks and gave up, They go for $25.99 may try again today when I go back. On one of them the hatchback is locked and it has some new looking tail lights and maybe a few other parts I want, going to take my lock pick set with me and see if I can open it.

One of them had headlights that looked like new, maybe I'll ask how much they cost.

Bring a sawzall next time. When in doubt, cut it out. Pull of the throttle bodies too. Get them ported and new butterflys at a local shop.

Those look like the regular clear ones. Looks pretty good on there. I have the smoked lenses on mine.
