Bought a twisted wire mesh in the Concrete section at Lowes for $9.56. I think it was 7" by 32" cut to fit across radiator frame an zipped tied it there. Took about 30 minutes and would have been faster if I had a good set of tin snips.

Old picture but don't have good picture of this mod

Chopped fenders, all you need is a rotary cutting tool, some masking tap, and an exacto knife to clean the melted rubber off. If you wanna make it look real nice like i did you can but black door molding and put it on the edges.

Pretty grille mod like rics1997. You can see it here among others. About $8.

Custom "Mountain" decal for Mountain Edition. See pic #7 here. $20.

DayStar dash panel. Here. $24. (Won't work if you have a 2011.)

Rustoleum bedline and high-heat black paint on the undercarriage exhaust. See it here. $20.

Grab handles. There's dozens of different kinds. Generally under $60 for a set, even for the Mopar ones.

Short antenna is on the way. Got extensive discussion recently here. Under $20.

x2 on turning the rear view mirror. Aside from better vision out the front, it also improves your view from the rear view mirror itself by giving you a fuller view of the rear window.

I'm looking at that rear view mirror trick.....it must come off some how as it doesn't want to turn without running into top bracket. There is only about 3" from top of windshield to where the mirror is stuck to the glass. I get the impression if I try to force the mirror to pivot something will break. What am I missing?

Remind me whether you have a 2010 or 2011. The folks I've seen turn it around have a 2010, including myself. In a 2010, it should just pivot right around, no removal or anything. Maybe a little bit of a push, but that's it.

Edit: Looks like you have 2008. Yeah, like Seadog said, face mirror down, spin clockwise or counterclockwise 180 degrees, face back up to a usable position. The key is to face it down first--if you just try to spin it while it's in its normal position it won't work.
