If you decide to part with your stock wheels, let me know. My wheels have corrosion from the center caps and look terrible.

I'll let you know, but I may end up having to get these powder coated myself. The company OEWheels uses, went out of business. They have no ETA on wheels while they search for a new powder coater.

I m interested in how to black out the door handles. I tried to get a limited without the cheesy looking chrome trim everywhere. The chrome door handles are way too much bling for me. I would prefer black.

I discussed this with the guy that did my vinyl wrap. He said it can be done but doesn't recommend it. Your best bet is to order the handles in whatever color you want from one of the many online mopar sites.

FreeJersey, Can you give me an idea of what it costs to get the vinyl wrap done for the chrome trim?

Thanks.

It was $450. That included all chrome trim (windows, roof rails, fog bezels, lower fascia, grille rings, step surround, and tail light bezels), and they put my emblems on.

Wheels and tires are on. Now to find the money for the mirrors, handles, and headlights. The mirrors and handles definitely have to be done now, they stick out way too much.

What did you use for the LED brake lights? Did you have to add resistors?

I ordered all my LED bulbs from VLEDS. It's a red 3157. http://www.vleds.com/3157-red.html

Yes, you do need a resistor. I'm actually still waiting for my resistor/harness that will handle my brake lights and rear fogs.
