Thank you, good to hear from a chrome guy, as you can tell I am not a chrome fan, but I still have a bit left around the windows and on the doors. That rest of the chrome will probably stay on it unless it starts to rust.

Thanks!

Yea I am big jeep fan I have had my wrangler since 1998, I like to show off the brand as well but I think that most people can tell its a jeep logo or not. I am still going back and forth between having the logo on the front or not. I kinda of like it on it looks a bit more stock.

Not sure who voted no , but its all good. Some guys like chrome everything, grilles, grille mesh, mirrors, tow hooks. I can respect that. Seems like the guys that want chrome don't have it on their vehicles and the guys that don't want want the chrome do have it on their vehicles...

We should start a chrome / body color swap thread.

Re: WK2 Black with Black grille & tinted taillights debadged Pictures!

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!

Scottina06 for making and maintaining this site! I have had a yj since 98 and I could never related to all of the guys on the other wrangler / jeep forums. JG.org is my favorite site!

Dougcjohn for selling the overland grille to me for a very reasonable price!
Corsa Exhaust Install - Quick Update

Scott’s Paint & performance for tinting my tail lights and shipping them back to Hawaii Superfast!
http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php...t=tinted+tails

Mhassler for referring me to Scott’s Paint and performance and for the info on how to take my tail lights out.
Recent Mods: Removed Chrome Door Molding, Grille Swap, Tow Hooks, LED Fogs & RRO Lift

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…

Thanks Brad! I am debating on whether or not I will paint the rear back piece. I am already a bit worried that it will look to black. At least in the cops mind, I am not sure if it is legal to have dark tint on my taillights or not. nor do I want to find out. But it has definitely crossed my mind.

O I already de badged it except for the trail rated circle on the driver side. Im thinking about leaving that one.
