  1. Those were my exact thoughts last holiday season. Thought I'd surprise the wife with a new mod to her wheels. I called the tint shop I passed everyday to & fro work , got everything arranged for Sat. morning, before X-mas. I'm only assuming my dumbass wasn't even paying attention when the shop owner informed me that the factory tint was slightly darker then legal limits. Got her squared away & back home before the wife had even known about my venture. Hell she didn't even notice a thing until 4:30 PM that day when the teen said "Mom, Why is there a sticker on the door , saying Do Not Operate Windows For 24 Hours". They were both already buckled in with the car started. She looked at me, threw the tinted window, asked "Whats this?" Took everything I had not to laugh at them both. "Whats what, babe?" About 2 seconds later, I think it clicked. Hahaha. Marry F'n Christmas! I made you car illegal! Butt she loves it none the less. They said the factory tint was 18.5%. They installed 20% up front & across the windshield. I still haven't fingered out to post pictures on here yet. I guess now I've got a reason to at least try.
  2. Looks Great! Super clean as well, almost looks like it should have been an option from the manufacture. How do they work? Can you control them (on or off)? Or are they always on? Any install pics? ..... Damn I sound needy! sorry bout that..... Oh yeah, why did you put the floor mats in like that? Shouldn't they be swapped (side to side)? Isn't the pad on there so you don't wear thru with the heel-toe motion? .... Okay! I think that's it..... I think I've had to much coffee.....Great mod though.....
  3. Have you tried swapping the bulbs, side to side? Might be the easiest way to check if it is the bulb (quality) if one side is in fact working correctly.... Dammit I was really hoping this was going yo work out for you Roberto. Good luck on a speedy fix Sir.
  4. Hey Steven! A good wheel & tire guy should be able to refinish that curb rash, fairly cheap too. Mine were pretty bad off, thought for sure they'd have to be replaced.I thought I'd try my luck with the wheel protection plan I signed up for when I bought the ride. 4 hours later, my 2 wheels were looking good as new, I'm pretty sure It was less then $300 with an alignment. Much cheaper then replacing just 1 wheel, let alone 2. Anyways, just thought I'd throw my .02 @ ya. Hope it helps.
  5. Dammit Cody! You're going to convince me to do this mod if you keep post pics like these. lol Yeah! I'd sure as hell hate to be the sucker that flashes you on that dark road....
  6. Okay wait, I'm confused. lol Are the fog lights actually speakers? Sweet set-up by the way....
  7. I got the wife the exact same (easy) gift for X-mas. You can never go wrong with THAT gift. The local tint shop ram their little scanner on the back windows and said they were 18.5%. Thanks Dodge! The shop owner suggested 15% if a match is what I was going for. Little did I know that 30% is the legal limit in my neck of the woods.... Hey Merry Christmas honey, your brand new car is No Longer Street Legal. Oops, My bad. It's a pretty good match though! from the outside, all windows up, sun shining bright its very hard to see the difference. The front windows are a shade darker looking through them from the drivers seat.
  8. I'd suggest turning a screw or two & seeing exactly what the dealership was talking about. I really couldn't see my local stealership even trying "such nonsense" as to install an aftermarket part. It'ii probably plug right in. Good luck Charger.
  9. Hey Roberto! When are you expecting to get a chance to install these? I'm thinking this might be the 1st mod the wife lets me throw on "her" car..... sounds simple & modest enough. Hope it all goes well, keep us posted.
  10. I prefer to change the oil in my muffler bearing every 10,000. Usually with a full synthetic. Not in the DJ though, in the Ol RAM. --->The Turbo Actually<--- Isn't krazy how we always used to joke about it? What's next? How are they going to figure out how to add fluid to a light bulb? Haha....
  11. I always used a piece of scrap 2x4 with a 3/4" deep slit, about 3/8" wide, cut down the center. Not really deep enough to contact the body, mainly to keep the pinch weld from folding over. Just toss it right on top of the floor jack. I think using a Ol hockey puck would work great! Hey bfurth! how did it work out? Have you tried this? Surely you've had your DJ up in the air since you've originally posted this...ans how did the jack stand adapter work as well?
  12. Oh! Okay Camp. I wasn't even thinking that route. I guess the title of the thread threw me off. No worries. Well Hell! In that sense, is there anything that can be done with the color / brightness of all the little accent lights all over the cabin? Now that I think of it, there is probably already a thread for that. Oh well, just throwing it out there....
  13. Which lights are you replacing? I'm pretty sure my 2016 came with LEDs. The 2 little spot lights in the center roof console? I'm not really sure where their mounted threw out the real, I never sit back there. In fact the light on the inside of the rear lift gate is the only light that isn't LED
  14. I'm sure you are! It's nice when you can sincerely take credit for something people appreciate. I was just asking because I've heard that pulling apart the factory headlights were a real pain in the a$$. With myself already having the croosroad/black-out headlights, I don't think starting over from scratch with plain Jane headlight assembly would be the best route. To be honest I've never played with this sort of thing, so I'll be completely winging it after I pull out the bulbs. haha
  15. Wait! Why would I have to push it twice? @ jkeaton. Does that help any more then a one tap?
