did the exhaust make any kind of difference in power? Did the jet chip do anything, i have heard that there is no real noticeable difference.

I definitely made a difference just not that big of one. Lib feels a bit more lively when accelerating, the low grumbles from the exhaust tricks your brain mentally to go faster because the higher revs the louder it is. But the chip helps with shifting points a lot. With help of better shift points and louder exhaust it just encourages your driving to be more aggressive. I never have gotten dyno'dor anything so I am not sure about any number gains but the ride is more fun. i never tried to burn the tires out when she was stock but I can get usually get one wheel to burn out, sometimes two if slippery. 275 wides have so much grip though..hope this helped!

Where did you get the pushbar in the front? Looks sweet.

I think I ordered it off carid not 100% though. I ended cutting off the bars around lights making it look more like police ram bar. It was quiet aggressive. I don't have any pictures on my phone of it but if I get to some Internet ill post em

Did you paint the interior housing of the headlights? They are black in these more recent pics. Love the ride, I have the same color scheme going on with my lib. How much of a pain in the *** were the headlights?

Thanks! ]

Yes the interior bezel is painted as well as the reflection piece and shroud for the projector.

I did a rebuild on the lights with two projectors sets!

A huge pain especially since I've never done anything like it. I went through two sets of headlights trying to get temp. Right in the oven. A lot of extra money and time was taken. But they turned out concrete so I'm okay with them. The projectors will probably last longer than my jeep

I'm interested in getting those TSW's for my Libby also. Might I ask, what was the offset on the ones you got? I'm looking at ones that are 8.5" wide with a +20mm offset. With those wheels and the Eibach springs, do you get any rub at full steering lock?

Thanks! Looks sweet!

Hey what kind of Headunit do you have in there? And how does it integrate (if anything) with Uconnect/steering wheel controls/sound?

Pioneer X940BT

It has its own Bluetooth system
Navigation
Pandora
Aha radio
iPod
DVD/cd

I had to buy a special cord to allow for my steering wheel controls to work (volume, source, and track) I'm not sure whether it would for the uconnect buttons in the wheels.

I love it. Although I would recommend the next level up. 7.1 screen and it can mirror your smart phone. Netflix on long drives!

Pioneer has a very easy operating system to figure out and easy to navigate through

I was looking at the next level up..and was intrigued by the AppRadio3 UI....one question I been wanting to ask...is it true you need to use specific apps to access/use/control stuff such as the Music app from an iPhone?

What I don't want is to have to download numerous Pioneer apps to use specific features off my iPhone.
