I am two weeks into a build on a black SRT8 to be used as a project vehicle in Sport Truck magazine. During this build we are making some one off items that may have interest to some of you. If there is a demand I may run some of these items for retail sale. Here is a list of the changes we are doing on this build. I noted the items I would be interested in running extra of. I will post sneek peek photagraphy of the completed vehicle in 3-4 weeks.

Thanks

B&B Stainless Exhaust. They will put this system into production once completed.

True Flow Sealed Air Intake. As of now its a one off item. I may produce more.

Slotted and Cross drilled rotors. This is a one off set but will have more in the future.

Kevlar Compound Brake Pads. Super low dust and killer stopping power. I will do more of these with the rotors soon.

Giovanna 22'' custom wheels. These are one off wheels being specifically machined for this project truck.

Pirelli tires

Custom polished billet aluminum door guards with SRT8 logo. These replace the chrome door guards that say Grand Cherokee. I can produce more of these items.

Custom billet aluminum antenna. Replaces antenna and chrome antenna base. This polished billet antenna is about 6'' tall. I can produce more of these items.

Lowering spring. This is an Eibach item we are waiting on. Still no due date yet. I need a lowering spring ASAP if anyone knows of an available spring already on the market.

Carbon fiber interior kit. This is available through Superior Dash Company.

Other items done to this project vehicle. High and Low beam Phillips HID system, Color match HOEN halogen drive lights, Speaker swap out and 8''sub cabinet, Color match rear deck spoiler, All jeep logos removed from front, rear, shift nob, and steering wheel. Shift nob and steering wheel have carbon fiber inserts with SRT8 logo to replace the Jeep logo. Stant 180 thermostat.

Will do... I will post the interior pics next week. The wheels are done but I am waiting for the rotors to get back from silver cad plating before I can finish the brakes and mount the wheels. Here is the engine shot with the intake. Also a few pics of my other ride and some of the parts I built for it. I owned a company called RM Racing where we build the Acura NSX, C5 Vett, and the Ferrari 360 upgrades. I sold this company and started True Flow. We build a project truck each year to support our filter and intake line.

Me too me too! I'll take the exhaust, intake, rotors, pads, antenna... :)

I bought a bi-xenon police/harley H4 system from your old company about 6 years ago. Back then very few cars had HID, let alone bikes... that thing was the cat's balls. You wouldn't believe how many people would just stare into the light like a deer. And it was great to see the reaction of people who knew what it was and couldn't believe it was on a bike. Plus it still works great! Keep up the good work.

I spoke with Eibach today on the springs and It looks like a no go. I have other options but it would take several months and a minimum order of 50 sets. This is the company in Holland that built all our Ferrari 360 springs in the past. Not sure what to do on this matter. Has anyone heard of any other companies looking to builds springs??? I have talked to Intrax, Eibach, and H&R.

Thanks

rm360, you plan to change the chrome to aluminum on the lower part of the door, but what are you gonna do with the chrome just under the windows? If you change one you should probably change all of it. Chrome mixed with aluminum on the same door or car for that matter is a little tacky. It is one or the other, don't you think?

Not at all, under the window is polished stainless steel and the lower guards are chrome plated plastic and the wheels are polished aluminum. So the factory has 3 different materials to start with. Polished billet aluminum is really the only answer to make the new door guards from. I think it will be 100% fine. There is no way I am going to make the window trim parts its way to thin to be redone in aluminum.

The carbon steering wheel insert is not an easy do it yourself job. The problem is you are messing with the airbag to get to the back of the steering wheel cover. Also removing the center jeep logo is very difficult to do without breaking the retaining clips. I will not produce this part for sale there is just way to much risk.

Here is a sneak peek of the antenna. I painted my antenna black to color match with the vehicle. In production I will only sell these in a polished finish. The antenna is billet aluminum and treads into the factory part eliminating the stock antenna and stock chrome antenna base. The stock plastic fender spacer is still used. I will keep posting items as I finish them and I will get pricing and full details ASAP.

I am very interested all the parts you have. Slotted rotors would look awesome. I too like the idea of removing the GC off the door and lowering the rear end. I don't know about 22's, since it's already rides on 40 series tires with 20's. Would you have to run 30 series.

Here is a sneak peek shot of the new wheels. These where blanks sent to us from Giovanna for the Sport Truck Project. The wheels had to be drilled for the jeep lug pattern then the backplates machined to make the correct 50mm back offset and 35 mm front. You can just fit a credit card in between the back of the spoke and the brake caliper. I had the SRT8 logos done in a chrome and red finish on the spoke. I will shoot more pics next week when I install the drilled and slotted rotors and hopefully come up with a spring to drop it down just a bit. ( ALSO YOU MAY NOTICE THERE ARE NO DOOR TRIM GUARDS... I still have all my guards off so we can get all the measurements as we are machining the new billet SRT logo ones. I Photoshoped in the holes that are showing along the door where the guard should be. Looks pretty cool all black but the polished guards will look killer... This is also a good shot to see the antenna.

I was wondering about the weight and performance of the new rim ...substantial losses? The antenna looks great as well ... looks really low profile completely shaved and lacking door guards ...cant wait to see the finished product!!!

No loss at all. The rim and tire are the same weight as the factory rim and tire. Remember the stock run flat tires are very heavy. FYI on the tire size. 265 / 35 / 22 front on a 9'' rim and 305 / 30 / 22 rear on a 10.5 rim. Factory O.D. ON THE FRONT AND REAR TIRES IS 29''. THE NEW SET UP IM RUNNING IS 29.2'' FRONT AND REAR.

Here is the update... B&B has the truck now and will have it all next week to complete the stainless exhaust system. I will complete the rotors and final carbon fiber interior pieces next week wile its gone. I should have the billet side trim parts done this week but then they have to go to powder coating to get the SRT8 logo done in black and red letters. Looks like sometime around the 24-25th the truck should be complete. Sport Truck mag will be here the 28th to shoot the truck. I will post pics asap once completed. I will have antennas and pricing next week also. I have a small run going now on them.

OK here the deal on the antennas... I now have 0 left. If you want one you can pay via my Pay Pal account rm360@aol.com. The price is $60.00 plus $4.00 shipping UPS ground. They come POLISHED FINISH ONLY and are ready to install. I will have them on Friday or Monday from the polisher. At this point I do not see enough response to do a large run of these antennas. I do not want to get stuck sitting on them forever. These where to be a one off item for my project truck but a few of you can get in on some of these parts if interested. First come first serve....

INSTRUCTIONS TO INSTALL THE BILLET ANTENNA.

Remove the factory antenna.

Remove the factory chrome antenna ring using needle nose pliers. One side of the pliers in the center hole of the chrome ring and the other side of the pliers in one of the notches on the chrome ring. You will need to open the hood and support the antenna base with your hand so it does not fall into the inner fender. You can reach in from the engine compartment side and hold the antenna base.

Screw on the billet antenna and secure. I would suggest using red lock tight on the threads. This is just to prevent people from unscrewing the antenna and trying to steal it.

Here is a shot of a front and rear pad. You will notice on our pad that we brought the friction material (the actual stopping surface) all the way to the edge of the backing plate. The factory pad stops the friction material about 1/4'' away from the edge. What this means is more friction material, more surface contact, more stopping power. Also no more dust.... These pads will pretty much eliminate that horrible dusting found with the factory pad. I had the same issues on my 360, Brembo factory brakes and a ton of brake dust. I did the exact same compound pad and it has eliminated the dust issue. I will do these pads per order only and they will take 4 days to finish after payment is received. Cost for front axle is $295.00 and rear axle is $225.00. FYI factory front are $242.00 and rears are $180.00. These aren't cheap but just like everything else when you only make a few sets it hard to make things cheap. Please keep in mind I'm not trying to retire on selling a few of these items here. I am just trying to share some of the cool parts we are coming up with to you guys.

I will have drilled rotor pics and cost up hopefully later today or tomorrow.

rm360
04-19-2006, 03:38 PM
Here is a shot of the rotors.... The rotor is directionally crosses drilled and slotted, then silver cad plated to prevent rust on the outer edge and holes. I painted the centers black, I think its looks better with a black hub and the silver cad platting doesn't coat the hub very well. This is something you would have to do on your own, I will send them straight from the cad plating company and I will not spray paint the centers before they are shipped. I just used a high temp black spray paint. I will have pricing and order time up shortly.

They are not for sale. This was a one off machined set. Its possible I could order a set of blanks and do a second set. You would be in the $3500.00 area for wheels only. Its a bummer but there are really no wheels that fit the Jeep SRT8 at all.

I have found a few that fit (I have only looked at 22s). Not my style of wheels for this kind of rig, but TSW has two (both one piece cast-- and look VERY heavy) 1) the Holsten, 2) the Carlton



MHT tells me that they can get the Foose DF6 to the correct specs with a little custom work, but in my past dealings with MHT, they promised a couple of things early, that when push came to shove, they could not deliver, so I wouldn't put much weight into this one yet. MHT does have two wheels right now that will bolt straight onto the GC SRT (however, I got the impression that what they offered were ONLY 22x9.5 for front and rear, with +48mm offsets, so until I see a set bolted up--which I may do, and have some pictures taken next week-- I can't promise they'd look right)....
The DUB Dirty Dog 5:
http://www.mhtwheels.com/images/categories/dirtydog5.jpg

and the Driv Royale:
http://www.mhtwheels.com/images/categories/royale.jpg

TIS says they have 3-5 models that will work, but again they didn't exactly exude confidence when talking to me about their wheels.

Options are limited for sure.... but there are options.

Definitely the best option is a 3 piece wheel, in which case the manufacturer is almost always willing to simply create the wheels to your exact specs at no additional cost. Asanti, and WTW (GFG) will both do them to your specs.

They are not for sale. This was a one off machined set. Its possible I could order a set of blanks and do a second set. You would be in the $3500.00 area for wheels only. Its a bummer but there are really no wheels that fit the Jeep SRT8 at all.

Nothing yet. Very nice sound deep and not obnoxious at all. We kept it so there was no resonance in the interior and just a nice deep note outside. Its a beautiful system...

The front muffler is shared by both sides. Not sure what it looks like inside. It might keep the two side separate and be a "true" dual system. The two cats are nice and big.

It is 3" tubing. I rode in RM360s truck with the B&B and was impressed. I am very sensitive to loud exhausts and have never liked B&B systems because I think they are too loud, but this system is honestly not much louder than stock. Some people might even be disappointed. No resonance at all was my favorite part. I was planning on never putting an exhaust on this truck, but now I might get mod fever and go for it. Billy is going to take RM's truck back and do the dyno testing (B&B only has a 2WD dyno so they could not do it themselves) so I will be interested to see if it actually does anything.

How's the AM reception?.....I like to listen to the Giants and A's here in the Bay Area.

The AM reception is fine. If I recall correctly, the exterior antenna is for FM reception. Back when I installed my own radios, I recall that the AM antenna was integral to the radio unit (a bar antenna on the back or inside) and the AM/FM recieving antennas were separate. I still believe this to be the case. When I was a kid I also had a Radio Shack electronics board (with the srping connects if anyone else had this toy) where you could build your own radios. The antennas were definitely separate. Amplitude Modulation (AM) and Frequency Modulation (FM) have different wavelengths and have different receivng requirements.

In any event, I listened to AM for a few miles and didn't notice any degradation of signal. Anybody have any insight on the AM antenna?

Sagging only occurs in springs that were heated (over a large area) to lower them. This is a down and dirty way to lower, mostly in the past now. Lowering has come along way. My 300C is lowered 1 1/2" with Eibach Springs and during 90 percent of my driving (an honest figure) there is no difference. If the car is used to haul 4 large adults frequently you would notice a difference. The biggest difference is over bad roads. That added 1 1/2" of travel helps to let the shocks stop the car before the bump stops do.

It is like everything else, it is personal preference my friend.

How much of a pain is it to install these?

The factory ones have plastic clips holing them on. The new ones go on with 3m trim tape. You need to remove the factory ones and clean the area very well with alcohol or 3m wax and grease remover. Then peel the backing of the 3m trim tape that is attached to the new part and stick them in place on the door. Its not difficult but it all depends on the skill level of who is doing the job. I guess the worst thing would be not putting them on straight or not cleaning the area first and the 3m trim tape will not bond well. Its all pretty basic stuff.

Would the Chrysler 300C SRT8 HID system retro fit into the Jeep SRT8 ?Sure, it's possible but everything would have to be custom made, mounts, etc. & the cost would be astronomical. On the other hand the stock GC SRT8 reflectors respond very well to an aftermarket HID upgrade. The light pattern is superb, in 3 months of use not one approaching vehicle has "flashed" me. The cutoff on the beam is very sharp, easily adjusted & there is virtually ZERO glare or irregular pattern issues. I honestly believe the light pattern & driving vision of the retofitted HID's in my GC SRT8 are better than that of the factory projector HID's in my '02 BMW M3. I did the low beams only & it has had no effect on the Smart Beam operation at all.

THERE ARE 5 SETS OF THE SRT8 LOGO DOOR TRIM PARTS LEFT AS OF MAY 23RD.

Thanks

Here are some shots of the exhaust... The last item I am waiting to finish up is the door trim pieces. I will have them on by the end of the week. I will post completed photos of the SRT at the end of the week or first of next week. Also I will try to get all the details on pricing for the rotors and side trim parts.

Hi:

I'm 07 SRT8. What's the wheel and tire set-up that you have on your's? They don't look stock.

Thanks; please supply info on where I can find them also. 07 SRTS8

just look back on this post all the info is listed. The wheels where custom made to fit the srt8 and are not normally avaliable. We machined the lug holes and back plates to fit. All the tire info and the wheel details are listed in earlier posts. Feel free to give me a call with any questions or if you are interested in getting a set of the wheels made.

where'd you find the HID setup? I've been looking and a few people told me that it does affect the smartbeam system. Thanks

where'd you find the HID setup? I've been looking and a few people told me that it does affect the smartbeam system. ThanksI'm using a 9006 HID kit from Xenon Depot for my low beams. They work perfectly, have an excellent light pattern with a sharp cut-off & no glare issues to oncoming traffic. The vision while driving is much, much better. This mod has NO effect on Smart Beam operation, it still works exactly the same. The Smart Beam system varies the voltage to the high beams to modulate output & therefore would not be compatible with HID high beam lighting. Anyone stating that a low beam HID upgrade will effect Smart Beam operation is mistaken. My HID's have been in since I picked up my GC SRT8 in January & are a wonderful mod.

One word of caution when considering HID's, buy a kit with relays. Don't use the kits that are "Plug & Play" that use the factory wiring to supply voltage to the HID's. These kits will operate OK most of the time in our Jeeps, but will "flicker" when cutting on, or off on occasion. The kits with relays require an additional wire to be run directly from the battery, or fuse box to each relay to supply power for the ballasts but will eliminate any feedback loop & flicker when the lights cycle.

For those of you with antennas ordered, they are at polishing and will be done on tuesday. I will ship as soon as they arive back to me. I will e-mail and post when they ship. Thanks for the orders and enjoy...


There are 4 sets of door trim guards as of May 31. If you want a set you need to get your order in. I am getting ready to set up to run them the first of next week. They will then go to powder coating and then polishing. I will not make any more after this run unless there are at least 12 sets.

Thanks
Randy

He is 100% correct. Mine flickered as well and after some of the above mentioned re-wiring, problem solved.

Randy,

Sent you a PM on the antenna, did you receive it?

Here are a few shots from the Truckin Magazine shoot. Should hit stands in one or two months.

Great pics. So what does the billet antenna do? Does it just sit there or does it shoot smoke or something? Just seems like a lot of attention for an antenna. It does look better than stock too.

Here is a pic of the steering wheel and the carbon fiber center I made to replace the JEEP logo.

Randy

I would really like to have this piece, as well as the shifter carbon fibre piece. Do you have a price?

Here are a few shots of the polished antenna. I need some feedback on how many of you may have interest in these. To do a small run of 12, these will sell for $60.00. If I do a larger run of 100 or so I can get the cost down some. Let me know.

Thanks
Randy

I would love to have this item and any thing else you have for a srt-8. e-mail estapuout@yahoo.com
