Chewie build thread
 
5 Attachment(s)
Just got an 06 WK Hemi last week and haven't really gotten any pictures yet so I didn't post anything on here. I haven't decided which direction I am going with this yet but I figure it would be a good idea to start from the beginning on here instead of trying to piece it all back together when I am finished three years from now. Just read through Omelet's build thread and its a great inspiration to keep track of things from the start, and make this WK awesome!

Anyway, all I've done so far is change the wiper blades, rotate the tires, and put on an Airaid CAI. Sounds like a beast. Or more accurately, according to my roommate, "Chewbacca" (hence the name!)

Coming from a 4.0 ZJ laredo that went pretty much anywhere, this is a big change. Now I just need to figure out how I can get another JeepForum sticker for my new Jeep!

Did lots of work over the weekend...but I guess there isn't really much to show for it. Did the grill mod (http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/e...e-mod-1273464/), tb ground, and fixed the engine splash guard (one corner was broken so it was just hanging there) on saturday/sunday. On Monday I received and installed my Superchips Flashpaq and this evening I got a shorty antenna, replacement wheel center cap, and USB plug. And since rule of the internet is pic's or it didn't happen..here they are (apparently the resizer program I used screwed up the aspect ratio on some of them...sorry!).

I really like what you did with grill, what did you paint the chrome with?

punisher65 02-05-2013 09:10 PM

Duplicolor Metallic Graphite. I love the color! When it gets warmer I think I am going to do all the chrome that way.

I was thinking about getting some Moab rims and painting them that color! Now that makes me want to do all of my chrome in that color also. Turned out great!

punisher65 02-05-2013 09:54 PM

Thanks. I am also thinking of some Moab rims. I've found quite a few sets around me...I just need to make an offer I guess

My rain guard things came in today, but I've heard of people breaking them when installing and the directions say to only install above 50*. I guess I am going to wait until the weekend when I can do it in the afternoon (when it hopefully is around 50*). Anyone have tips on installing these? (they are EGR slimline in-channel window visors Link)

When I installed my Putco in channel guards I did the same, waited till it was a warmer day. Also after I installed them I left the windows up for the rest of the day to allow time for a good bond. They were installed about a year ago, and no issues yet.

Good to hear. Thanks for the feedback. If only it was summer already...

Got the window visor things in today. It was much easier than I expected (they didn't break!)
