New Addition to my front end ;)

This weekend I decided to do a little work on my Jeep and change the front end around a bit.
1. I got the OE chrome grille painted to match my True Blue Pearl paint
2. Added a chrome mesh grille and lower air dam cover from ABLAZE Grilles.
3. Swapped my fogs and DRLs for White LEDs



Let me know what you think

That looks sweet. Small touch with huge impact. Good job. If I didn't have adaptive cruise control I'd definitely try that.

Looks really nice & I plan something similar. Two questions:
1) Which is the right part number for a 2012 Laredo Grille: 55079377AC or 57010708AC or something else entirely have 2011 parts listing but not 2012)
2) What prep is need for the paint to stick properly ?

Suspect that for the $400 difference between a chrome plastic grille and the body color grille that one could be painted. I am finding some subtle differences in parts between the 2011 and the 2012.


One of these is a diesel.

I like the LEDs and wondering if they are a direct fit (plug & play) or did you have to modify them ? Also do you have the company that makes them and the model # thanks
