Funny thing is that the GC SRT-8 will have a body colored grill with a small amount chrome outlining the 7 slots. Also the new mini WK2 / compass comes with a body colored grill..

But yea I like mine body colored even if all of the other WK2's were body colored.

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

Hey bud,
I just picked up a white overland and I can't stand all the chrome bits. What is involved in the process of painting plastic chrome and how does it hold up. In addition, I would like to remove all these badges and door moulding. Do any of the badges have small mounting holes hidden beneath?
Best

Im with ya man. I had a friend professionally color match the grille on mine. I wouldn't try to do it myself since I have no painting experience. I did install he grille on my own. The paint will hold up the same as the rest of the vehicle. I have a laredo so I don't have chrome mirrors, door handles or fog light bezels. As far as debadging there were no small mounting holes on the rear tailgate or the front jeep logo. There are also no mounting holes on the chrome side pieces.

I would recommend trying to trade with someone that has a laredo the same color as yours for the door handles and bezels.

That's easy man, hop on a plane, pack 2 suit cases, ship your SRT10! That's what I did about six years ago. Although I will admit its much easier to do when your young, dumb, single and have balls the size of Texas.

Looks great. I really like how the stock 17s look with white lettered tires. Totally changes the look of the wheel. I like those wheels oddly enough, seeing as most people want bigger wheels. LOL

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

looks great. Black inside of the headlights would look awesome with that scheme. ( not black covers but the job where the interior of the lights is blacked out. )

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

After I got my rims I think im staying with the chrome grille. I think it looks good with the blacked out Rims and blacked out Tail lights and head lights. What do you guys think? Maybe add on a chrome mesh grille?!

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

I was thinking to leave the chrome to accent the chrome nuts in the wheels. You dont agree?
