If saguaro does a front axle swap kit Ill buy it for sure. But i dont think im ready to jump into a custom project. Im only 17 after all and dont know a lot.

But to visualize, I think what I would do is paint the grill to match the body and do the insert in argent, like the wheels. I would do that, or paint the grill argent and the insert black to match the 4xGuard brush guard.

To be honest, I don't think the chrome really looks all that bad but if you are going to change it, that's what I would do. It's your Jeep in the end.

FWIW, I think you've done a hell of a job on that WK. I have to agree with the others on how they look lifted.
Thanks, and I agree, the chrome doesnt look all too bad. I think ill leave it as it is for now as its not at the top of the list.

We are already looking at doing a Dana 60 solid axle swap kit using a custom long arm suspension that we are developing. Not sure on whether or not it will be a 6" or not but we are hoping to clear 37" tires on our 06 WK. Keep an eye out for it.

I love what you have done with your WK. I really like the green. That is what I wanted but could not find one with everything I wanted when I was buying.

For your next mods I would highly suggest and intake, exhaust, and the superchips flashpaq. You will see a big increase in power. I know the hemi does well regardless, but these will make it feel better than it did when stock size.

As for the chrome, I'd say leave some. You said you wanted it to look like a show vehicle and yet be able to wheel. Well having a little bit of chrome makes it pop and not look so bland and dull.

For lighting get yourself some HID lows and fogs. They will make a huge difference. I am still shocked at times of how amazingly bright these things are. I don't have off road light yet mostly because my head lights are so bright. If you do get some off road light, get some HIDs if you can afford them. If not just get some good strong housings and convert them to HIDs, it would be cheaper.
This is what I am planning on doing. Keeping them small and aerodynamic.


Whatever you decide man will look killer. Just trying to give some thoughts.

This is my XJ


Here is my new beasty


I will never be done making modifications. Such is the life with a Jeep

Your Jeep Looks amazing as i have said before. By far the best looking Wk ive seen.

Omelt, Not sure if you know or not but those lights you posted above are the stock Mopar roof lights and come with clip on covers too. They have them at Justforjeeps.com too.
