Damn thanks man, it's good to get some comments from the WK SRT guys! l I sweat your SRT, it looks much better than the new SRT. I am leaving the chrome on the side of mine chrome just like yours. The lines make it look really clean. I think I would throw the same rims / same color rims on mine. Are you running 20's or 22's and what is the color of your rims?

I used skate back in the day now I just surf, if you ever come out to Hawaii hit me up if you want to surf.

Thanks bro! I dig your SRT! Looks sick, much better looking that the new ones!

Im thinking either black rims or possibly dark grey like SRTILLA rims. 20's for sure.

It's mostly de-badged now. Except for the trail rated. circular badge on the driver side.

I think I may black out the rear chrome piece? What do you think?

Thanks LiquidOX, I agree color matched is the way to go. Im gonna leave the side moldings chrome for now. I don't like chrome but I think the lines look good with the chrome how it is. Kind of how some of the black SRT guys leave theirs chrome. Going for that look vs entirely blacked out.

I agree! Not going for Gaddy with my jeep. I feel like the chrome grilles make it look 80's on the darker color cherokee's..

When I see the guys with the chrome grille and the chrome mesh behind the grille it makes me think of guys like this.



No offense to the guys that do this just saying. I would never to that to my teeth or to my car.

I'm glad everyone has different opinions or everyone would be running around with a color matched grille and mine wouldn't look as cool if everyone had it.

I can't believe how sick this jeep looks just from color matching the grille and tinting the tails!

Here are a few more pics! Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback.

Makes me want to buy rims right now..

Looks tight. Black rims need to be next for sure along with blacking out the windows

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

I say get those driver and passenger windows tinted, and you're set. I just got mine color matched to the factory tinted rear windows on my Inferno Red, and it looks much more uniform.

Nice man! Let's see some pics. I wish I could just get the front windows tinted and be done, if I had the stock 20's I would probably be done. But I'm not a big fan of my stock 17's .
