Is your Ride Pimped to the Max ?

When is enough ,enough ? I have 17 mods or accessories and just realized I missed one. Invisa-gard head light protection. Let's hear from everyone about what makes your Nitro different from the evry day ride .

This is a very good question. I have seen Nitro's or any car for that matter than could be considered over the top. As pictured below, I have a few meager upgrades / options installed that can be observed. The ones that cannot are just little things that Dodge should have done. Like sound deadener in the doors / cargo area, gas shocks on the hood instead of the prop rod, video connector on the dvd player so that a screen can be hooked up. On the outside as listed in my signature and a pair of stainless nerf bars that I have yet to install. I also plan on putting the stainless fuel door but I have yet to buy that.

Since the Nitro R/T already comes with many of the upgrades that I would have done this was a real easy vehicle to mod.

What are you upgrades / mods?

Very Nice Allan. I really like the gas shocks for the Hood Idea. I haven't noticed any need for sound deadener in my Nitro. Of course I'm coming from A Honda Element and they ,although a good vehicle ,suffer from road and tire noise .I did add sound control to that piece along with Michelin oversize tires. Your Nitro is bad looking machine "Fer Shur". I'd love to post a picture of my Nitro but I can't seem to get it together on this site. Our Administrator ,Linda sent me instructions on the method used to post pix but I spent 3 frustrating hours last night just to find out that I'm mentally challenged .I did the photobucket routine but with zero success . Maybe another time and place ,we shall see.

My mods and upgrades ? Exterior upgrades as follows ,Westin Bull Bar with skid plate in chrome ,Westin nerf Bars in chrome,Westin Rhino Bar in chrome,K.C long range lights mounted on the Bull Bar in chrome with chrome stone guards ,chrome/stainless door mouldings,Chrome mirror caps,Chrome door handles,Chrome Bug deflector,Chrome tail light cages,Chrome Dodge license plate frame ( under sized I had to trim the plate to fit ),Key operated chrome hitch pin,and Mopar wheel locks (Lug nuts ). Interior /exterior I have (had it done ) wired the factory fog lights ( and or ) the K.C. lights wired as day time running lights (DRL'S ) activated with the ignition on switch. This way I can chose any beam combination at night ,high,low or all three.
Interior I have tinted all side windows and rear with a total blackout .I know it's not legal but I've been getting away with it for years. I have also added eight additional tie down hooks strategically located to allow me to have two cargo nets. I tried to buy a decent cargo mat but had to return several that were pure junk. I found a 40/60 rubber backed carpet (in Black) at Wal-Mart for $14 .It fit perfectly between the newly added tie down hooks. It's thin enough to be folded so as to fit with either the rear seat uo or down. All this ,in my opinion,looks great on my 08 R/T ,4x4 Nitro in Sunburst Orange Pearl. Yesterday I completed the second coat of Teflon polish . Now even the Love Bugs can't hang on . My dealer gave me free mud guards(part of my deal ) but I haven't installed them yet.

UN ..Thanks for the helpful advice but I had already tried that approach. The result was that the images allowed were so small that even I ,who knows what the Nitro looks like ,couldn't really see anything worth seeing .So ,I deleted the reply and said "To Hell with it "

The easiest thing I have found to do, is go to photobucket (or wherever you choose to upload your pictures, I use picasaweb) and view the image you wish to attach. Right click on the image and select properties. This will open an information box that will have a line in it that says "picture location" or image depending on your OS. Highlight the location by double clicking on it then right click on the highlighted text and select copy. Then come back to this page and click the image tag in the reply window and right click in it and select paste then post. It works for me every time.
