Figured I'd finally say Hi!

Have had my 06 Hemi for a little over a year now. Been on the forum for a bit lurking, so Hello!

This is how she looks right now. I've put on the 2.25" RC Lift, JBA UpperCA's, Monroe LA Shocks in rear, AEM Intake, MBRP Exhaust, Flashpaq, 265/70/17 BFG ATKO2, Audio upgrades

Just fighting the alignment, the alignment shop broke one of the rear LCA mount bolts... so gotta get that fixed... lol

About to do Water pump, thermostat and hoses this weekend... it's a Jeep thing.

Thanks! They are my stock 17's. I put on 1.5" Spacers to keep the same wheels. I like the chrome.

I'm anticipating a pretty straight-forward replacement.

Any obstacles I should look out for?

Yaaa...WAAAAY better than my stocks! Previous owner Plasti Dipped them and it's looking pretty bad after a couple of years of use. Just got this XK a few days ago(24/11/18). May repaint them in the summer time? Save some coin.

Dang buddy, those look rough. Nothing a high pressure wash and repaint can't fix

Shouldn't really be too bad, AC lines will be in your way the whole time, though. The worst part will be burping the system when you go to refill it....unless you got a vacuum venturi refiller. Not sure if autoparts store rent those or not...

2006 Dark Khaki Limited, Hemi, QD-II w/ all the options.
Inertia Performance Heads, Full SRT 6.1 Valve Train, Custom Crower Cam, Double Roller Timing Set, Trend Performance forged Pushrods, High PSI Oil Pump, ARH Long Tube Headers and Mids, Borla Catback, aFe Stage 2 Intake, AEM X-Series WB UEGO & 100psi Oil Guages, PowerStop Drilled & Slotted Rotors, MDS On Light, Kenwood in-dash Nav, HID Projectors and full LED lighting upgrade

Need to get it on a dyno....
