Re: My 2012 JGC Overland

..and it looks like you replaced the stock shifter knob as well. I really really like what you've got going on here. How much was it to get your grille painted? What lower bumper is that? I don't believe I've seen that before. Thinking about painting the rear chrome piece on the tailgate as well? Great stuff!

Re: My 2012 JGC Overland

Great work indeed. Please tell us where you got that lower bumper, and perhaps for how much? Would love to see more pics of it from farther back and maybe the side if possible. Thanks.

Re: My 2012 JGC Overland

After some digging I found the entire body kit on Ebay. Now I'm not so sure how I feel about the front bumper.

Here are a few more pics taken today after I installed painted wheel well trim. And the bumper looks a lot better painted.

The grill is from 2012 Attatude mineral gray. And I only had to pop my chrome out and pop in new grill, didn't have to take bubper off. Don't plan on removing rear chrome

Re: My 2012 JGC Overland

Looks really nice- thx for sharing the additional pics. Painting the wheel moldings really ties it all together. Not sure how clean it would look if lip was added and the moldings weren't color matched. Well done!

My thoughts exactly. Really sharp looking.

Who ever tried to match the factory white paint on that kit should not paint anymore.
