157.94 Shipped minus the price that I sold my OEM gray bezels (75)
I'd rather spend a few extra bucks to install an OEM part if available.

Same here, now I don't have to worry about any plastidip peeling off or whatever. But hey, to each their own.....

Re: Gloss Black Tail Light Bezel Swap

In my case it's not worth it, when you sell the vehicle you peel it off, I'm always aiming for all changes to be non permanent if possible, of course we all have different needs and motivations and that's great.

Re: Gloss Black Tail Light Bezel Swap

Awesome write up and thanks for posting this. I saw these on Just for Jeeps and want to remove the chrome around the lights, but didn't know exactly how to remove these. I will definitely be using these steps to perform the same changes, but how did you get the price so low? I think the best I got quoted was $175 or something close to that.

Re: Gloss Black Tail Light Bezel Swap

That's what I got them for with the discount they give for forum members.

Didn't realize they were a vendor for this place. Good to know, going to have to wait till next week but this will be my next addition.

Plasti Dip gets dull after a few washes and stains. This "mod" sounds expensive, but if you want GLOSS BLACK trim then it's the best option. You could always keep the old trim and sell the gloss black before selling the car.

Got mine plasti dipped in may 2013, no peels no dulling and I use the self server carwash allot, if you do it right it lasts and as tallguy stated, when time to sell comes about... peel and back to factory for those that love chrome. $100+ for plastic parts is just highway robbery.
