Thanks I was wondering that :/ will most likely look into getting them painted. Also would prefer to paint the grille and rims, I like plastic dip just not the texture and I would like a gloss mirror finish feel me? Also to really "pimp out my ride" I'm gonna throw DVD monitors on the mud flaps! 8D ...just messing around

My buddy plasti-dipped his rear brow and added the glossifier. Came out pretty smooth and glossy.

Looking nice! Can't wait to see this with some gloss black mods on it! Love the new white with the painted trim.

Once you get yours you won't regret it, the 8spd changes the feeling completely
Cheers I'll jeep ya posted on detais I've got some nice tricks up my sleeve to TRON this baby out even more
I have a black JGC limited and wanted the black gloss look for the rear brow. If you want the black gloss "painted" look, plastidip with glossifier will not get you there. I did it and it looks good, but I guess I was hoping for more of a painted look.

The rear brow just pulls off like the 11-13

I'd say I did about 6 gloss coats. Every time I would let it sit to dry, I would come back to find a dog hair or piece of grass curing in it, so I was doing a lot of touch up coats. As I said, I like it, but I think in my mind I was hoping for more of a Altitude look.

Are you thinking of doing your wheels at all? I am contemplating it, but I'd hate to start doing it, then decide it doesn't look good.

I hate when that happens the woes of painting outside. I'm not sure now if I want to do the wheels anymore due to texture and shine. might look into powdercoating bit that would require removing tires from the rims and finding s way to keep the jeep on jack stands for a few days not to forget paying for Mount and balance

Had an incident with a garage door and have some scratches on my 14 Overland rear brow. Can you point me to the direction of some instructions on how to pop off the rear brow, as I will plasti dip to correct the scratches for the time being.
