I had originally posted this when I put up the thread. I thought it was a bit long so I will post it now.
Since I purchased the WK2 I have wanted to get the overland black mesh grille and also paint the chrome grille black. Done & Done! I was scared to do it myself but I was able to do it on my own. Somehow I now feel closer to my WK2, there’s just something about doing it yourself.
Just recently I saw a few guys getting their taillights done and decided to do it as well. I may have gone a shade to dark but I think that it looks sick with everything blacked out.
Badges I recently decided to take them off, I couldn’t stand the back with the 4X4 on there. I am debating on whether or not to put the Jeep logo back on the front or not?
Future mods; Tint the front 2 windows / 20 inch overland rims either the stock ones or the perma chrome. I am leaning towards the stock 20’s, it looks pretty dark as it is. This mod wont happen for a long time as it is the most expensive.
Thanks to everyone that helped me with the mods!

Lastly to my wife for going on vacation with our 5 month old son, so I could install the grille / tail lights! It’s a surprise she doesn’t know that I blacked out the Jeep. I hope she likes it. If not I guess I’ll be sleeping on the couch for a while. .. Yea right…
