Lightbulb Customization Brainstorming

Over the past month i have taken my stock 2015 Trailhawk, and have had it lifted, the window trim vinyl wrapped in satin red, and am currently having XD Series 818 Heist rims powdercoated... I've got two weeks before i move to Washington D.C for the summer and i have been meticulously trying to think of more fun things to do with my Cherokee to make it look more aggressive. Gobi Stealth Rack is practically inevitable at this point, but i'm waiting until i move. I really want to do some more with Vinyl, specifically in the interior. RRO Bumper/Brush combo is inevitable (despite my cautious and pessimistic outlook on everything due to bad reviews). Here's the problem, i literally know NOTHING about cars, i am completely starting out on my own. I am slowly learning, and have no engineering or mechanical background what so ever. So as of now, i'm having a Auto-Custom shop installing everything for me. Also am curious to know if i could get a body shop or metal worker of some sorts to make me some sort of a DIY mount to put on the RRO Bumper to put a small light bar on? Color Scheme on the car is Satin Red, and Charcoal Grey for reference to any interior/exterior ideas. Ideas are appreciated!

If you weren't moving I could give you better advice... There is a Facebook group called the Utah Jeepcrew group that you can usually lurk and find lots of those places that can help make pretty much anything Jeep happen.

After you get the rack and figure out what you're doing with the front bumper (or you can mount to the front yourself pretty easy lots of DIY sites to look for) install some limb risers,
a) they're easy to make and install
b) they're Functional
c) they add a little aggressiveness to your build,

Even if you don't use them you can look like you do (I hate to have to make that statement, I don't like the jeepers that buy all the add-ons and cool stuff but never use it, but to each their own I guess)

I actually thought they were more recessed and less flush looking, before I had them installed. But I like the look now

I lived in D.C. for just shy of six years. Loved my job, hated living there. I would make sure your XM works, you have a Go Bag ready and water in your door pockets. Oh, and pack your patience. You won't be going any where any time fast.

The closest place, in any direction, to go get a little bit dirty from the heart of D.C., with zero traffic (a pipe dream), is 2.5 hours away.

I assume you have an internship there? What agency?

JW Speaker fog lights. Blue Ridge Overland Gear panels and bags. Pelican tool box loaded! Bubba Rope and Gators too. Much more....

I am doing door to door sales for Vantage. Vantage is a company that orchestrates door to door sales for college students. I'll be selling Terminix pesticide products and other home applications.

We have a pretty active crew in the Northern Virginia (NoVA) and Maryland Capital region that takes trips every few months.

We recently went to Assateague Island and regularly goto Flagpole and Peter's Mill (Both in western VA). However, like @Mudman1 said, you're a good 2.5+ hours from everything being in DC.

We also have Rausch Creek in PA, which is an off-road park, and @IRSmart knows of private property that's occasionally an off-road park that we may have access to.

Re: RRO Light bar, if you get the bull-bar, it has light mounting tabs already installed. Quite a few members have this bull bar (since it's the only one available) and have lights installed. You really should check out @DZOnline and @Len1304 's build threads. They have two of the more equipped Cherokees on the forum. (And they're extremely tastefully done.)

Locals: @HazzardSky @MarinR00 @Rojhan @IRSmart @RegalTraveler @fdegree
