My 2012 Overland SRT Hybrid
Hey guys, I just wanted to show off my completed project. This was my attempt to combine all my favorite visual items from both an Overland and an SRT-8. It's been a long road getting everything the way I wanted but in the end i'm pretty happy with the results. Being there are so many of us Jeep owners on the road I finally feel like I made the car my own and could stand apart from the rest of the lineup. First off i'd like to thank Chad from Black Ops for working with me on the body kit. I wont comment too much on the preparation or the installation process of the bumpers because mine will most likely be alot different then yours if you order a kit. Chad and I were in communication throughout the whole process and he has been adjusting and perfecting the kit for a more streamline install. Its hard to tell from the pictures but the exhaust tips are beasts and look great in person, the chrome stands out a lot more than the black OEM tips.
Other mods on the car include
Taillight Solutions rear fog kit
LED License plate bulb replacement
Replica SRT 20in rims
De-badged rear and finished off with SRT Design badge
I know there is a lot going on here, and its sort of mixing "looks" but overall I think it all works for my tastes. I'm really not trying to be a poser by turning the car in to an SRT-8 and to be honest I think only die hard jeep fans would even notice a difference, but I love the SRT design and being the price went up so much since I owned my WK SRT-8 I thought I'd work with what I have.
Any way I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Here is a night shot before I changed from stock rims
and one from the back to show the tail light solutions kit
and the badging

Thanks for the comments guys. In the next day or so i'm probably going to remove the chrome side strips on the doors and replace it with the GC chrome letters like on the SRT, I just think it cleans it up more. Not a lot of people are fans of the side steps, for some reason I like them though. I could of done a rep SRT hood for under a grand but I didn't really think its that noticable unless you're sitting in the car looking out at the air scoops. I don't want an exact SRT replica but more of mixing the best of both the overland and the srt. If I start replacing too much then its just a pure SRT8 clone. The kit for the front and rear shipped is about $2500, the rep rims were about a grand and install, paint and moding will vary depending on your body shop. This was the first kit shipped to the US so it was a lot of trial and error, but adjustments are being made for future kits. I'll post some more pics after the side molding is removed this week.
