All signs are pointing to me taking home a 2009 red rock from the dealer tomorrow. Super excited!

So I started messing around to see what painted wheels would look like. I also recently seen a silver SRT8 with the pillars painted black with dark tinted windows. Looked pretty sick IMO. So I tried to pull off the same look with the red rock.

Its my first time editing a photo, so don't judge me:fu::grinbiginvert:



Didn't care much for the way the rear wheel was turning out, so I gave up.

First of all, hope you pick it up. Red Rock FTW!!!

There may have been one person on here who did what you did on the front wheels, and I know that someone also did the entire rim red rock.

You might like something like this (in red rock of course) :

Red rock is completely different in person. I seen it online and wasn't a huge fan. Didn't like how dark it was. Once I seen it in person under the bright sun, I knew it was the one.

Thanks for the support!

From the dealer picture it looks like the inferno red which is the rarest 2009 color on the smallest production run makes it about 29 units for that color/yr. Congrats on purchasing a rare one! Looks like it has all the goodies too! Enjoy!

I may be wrong, but some 09's did come as inferno red. Inferno red replaced red rock in 2010

Original owner purchased it May 2009. Hell this thing may be an Inferno Red. I wouldn't be able to tell them apart, with only seeing a few black and grey srt8's.

I will post pics tomorrow. Count find time to take pics today, I was having to much fun driving this beast. First MOD will be NEW FLOOR MATS!

Isn't the paint code on the door jam? Inferno is a lighter color red while Red Rock is darker & looks kinda brownish dirty looking in the sun. LOL J\K there Johnny

Just noticed the black Brembros, you sure its an 09 & not an 08, that would also make it a Red Rock. Just wondering cause the 08's had black & in 09 they switched to red. I even thought they ran out of the black ones in late 08 & put red ones on a few 08's.

The picture in my original post is not my jeep. I googled a high res red rock srt8 to edit. Mine does have the red calipers.

Hahaha, don't be mad you couldn't find a Red Rock to go along with the Modern Blue!

jim, the original picture is an image off the web, not the actual jeep. You posted a link from the dealership on the first page of the jeep. It is inferno!
