White 2006 WK Build Thread

Got my White 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.7L V6 a little less than a year ago. Things have been slow as I spent most of my money on buying it in the first place but now that I have some more cash in my pocket I've been planning on getting a lift and tires and other various upgrades. So I figured I'll make a thread of the couple things I've done and then update it, hopefully in the near future.

Here's my jeep in the dealership when I first got it and a pic of my jeep and my friend's exterra...




First I took the factory air dam off and threw a bull bar on the front..



Couple days ago I painted the "jeep" badges black, de-badged the bottom left corner of the rear door, and put a "cherokee" decal on the back door. I went to autozone and got the letters in chrome, painted them black, and then put them on. I cant take credit for the idea though, I saw it on Robb286 build thread first.


Future upgrades coming soon:
-Rock Krawler X-Factor 3.5" Lift
-LT255/75R17 off-road BSW tires
-Rola Roof Rack
-Fogs for Bull Bar and Roof Rack

Looks good! I just debadged the lower left corner of the liftgate myself this weekend, It looks so much cleaner in my opinion. I wish Chrysler left the trim over the license plate painted in the 08's, I'm not thrilled over the black trim.

Also, a little change in plans on lift and tires...
Lift: RC lift
Tires: Falken Wild Peaks, cause a couple people I know have them and like them a lot, they're aggressive looking but still are A/T's and the price is very cheap compared to similar tires.

I think the black grill on the white WK looks good. I've thought about doing it to my silver, but I didn't like how it looked when Jayl00p did his. I have no opinion on the headlamp situation though hehe. Good luck with your decision. Nice choice on the falken tires too.

IN PROGRESS: FUTURE: (Superchips, 4Xguard rails/skidplates)

I like the black grille on the white man, looks good! I was contemplating getting Stillens for mine too, but I wasn't sure I wanted to drop 110$ on them. So I kind of cheaped out and decided to try to "make my own." I used Plasti Dip and painted some on lol.

I think I'm guna end up doing that, it's kind of a waste of $110. Especially when then bulk of my money will be going to lift and tires. Yours look great though, you didn't take them off to paint them right?

Nope I did it with them still on. I just taped the line with blue painters tape, and then taped some grocery bags around the area to protect from over spray.
