PostSubject: meat stick 09 Nitro   Tue Mar 23, 2010 5:42 pm

Last Thursday I purchased my Nitro out of Sauk City, and have been thinking about what mods are available for it, and what would be most practical first. Needless to say my very first mod was the removal of my front license plate....lol (not really mod, more of joke when we were doing it)

I now today have ordered Rims and will hopefully have them on by next week. They are American Racing Vilain Rims, 20" with Machine Wash and Black Accents. I ordered tires at the same time. Yokahoma 255/45-20.

This is what my vehicle will look like with the rims. The picture really does not do it justice.

http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/MiniWheelSearchServlet?nonWinter=true&partNum=AR88528512738BMF&autoMake=Dodge&autoModel=Nitro&autoYear=2009&autoModClar=SLT&wIndex=0&grid=true&sw=1280

And these are the tires that I ordered.

Once all of these mods are complete, I am looking into more: Lowering Springs, Blacked out head and tail lights, Sound System, Exhaust, Intake.....

If anybody has any ideas or think from the list above which should be next let me know.

I just hope your calipers stay on. Terminator didn't have 300 miles on his Nitro before it got its first tow truck ride...

Yeah I was there that night when he was talking about all the issues with his. The 07 and 08 models had a lot of issues. I got an 09 and I have not heard to many major issues like that so far. But we shall see. I got one hell of a warranty on it so hopefully I only have to pay for it, instead of use it.

The new Rims being primed. Look really nice!!!!!


Little side story for ya....

I go in today to have the rims primed and the guy at discount tire tells me that because I have no valve stem covers(the way i bought it) it will cost me at a minimum of $55.00 per tire to have the TPM replaced. He says, you might wanna go back to your dealer and have them replace them for you. I call the dealer and of course they are being douche bags on the issue. On Thursday I will be running it over to them and they better pay to have all 4 replaced.

Alright so with the issue above I have been doing some research and it looks like i can just buy the sensor myself, take it in and have it replaced, which would save me a ton of money. This would also be best because than I would have sensors on both sets of my tires and than when I swap them out in the winter and summer i dont have to have the bead broken each time. I tried to find the OEM replacements however I can only find knock off's. They state that they are direct replacements of the OE but I am just worried that they will not work. Has anybody has any experience with replacing parts that are not exactly OE and than having issues making them work? Or do you think if it says that it is a direct replacement for the OE that it will work fine?

Had a little dealy

Today was suppose to be the day to have my new rims insatlled however i backed out this morning and decided that it would be smartest to wait instead of paying of the final balance for them and being cut extra short and not knowing if i would have been able to make it to my next check or not and afford bills. I put down another large portion of money and have moved one step closer to getting the rims but at the same time one step further away. sad day.

I have however tinted my tail lights, took about a half hour to do both of them and it was pretty easy. They look bad ass. I also just ordered some chrome for the door handles, and potentially the mirrors. We will see how they look, they come off as being gaudy. They came together in a package deal though so why not.

Painted my grille on Saturday. Here is the final product. Really happy with the way it turned out. Will probably repaint it again in 2 weeks to touch up some spots and see how bad it chips or wears.

Before



After





A couple edges the gook forgot to really hit well, will be touched up in 2 weeks.
