Have had my 06 Hemi for a little over a year now. Been on the forum for a bit lurking, so Hello!:smile2:

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.:laugh2:

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 ;)

I'm anticipating a pretty straight-forward replacement.

Any obstacles I should look out for?
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...

The pump is an easy replace... just a bit of a pain to get to. The hoses are easy peezee. You might consider replacing your belt as well since you're already going to be up in all that mess.
