Cool new owner - 2017 trailhawk! first mods done..

hey everyone,

well i pulled the trigger on a new trailhawk yesterday. Got it in Granite with all the fixins. got the prefered package which consisted of the safety tec group along with the comfort group, trailer tow package, and the dual pane panaoramic roof. i wanted the black rims but figured i can just plastidip it myself. got a smokin deal for less than 34.5k brandy new with all that!!!!

i decided today since it was a sunday that i would paint the muffler black and also pin stripe the hood and two of the grill inserts. super easy job took less than 5 minutes and it does make a little difference. i didnt like the way the muffler stuck out in silver so i used high temp paint i got from pep boys ( header paint) and painted it black.

next on the list is to plastidip the wheels!

Welcome to the forum. Out of curiosity, why color two grill inserts? You are not the first to do this!

That's what FCA did on the Moab concept Cherokee. You know that one that everyone wants and no one can have because it cost $100,000 to build.

Did you do that by yourself? I wonder if that would look good with hydro blue

I was thinking of doing this as well. Was deciding between dipping the whole piece or outlining it.

Looks good! I also noticed you got it from Jack Powell. Thats where I take my jeep. Mine is not a Trailhawk however. Just the AD1 but with some mods. I have yet to hit a trail in my Jeep.

Are you a veteran off-roader?
