BTW your Jeep is sick! Mine is a daily driver in the Midwest so silver was the better color for me with our bad winters.

Mine had the tow package, so came with the embossed cover. From what I've read, it is a very easy switch out.

I used 3M 1080 Black Gloss Vinyl. I was skeptical at first, but it blends in nicely with the other trim. Was about a 3 hour job.

Re: Chrome Removal - Blacked Out

The window trim pieces are vinyl? Or did you cover/spray/wrap them in 3M vinyl! How did you go about searching for them on Amazon?

I applied vinyl wrap to the existing trim. Used 3M 1080 glossy black vinyl in a 4ft x 5ft sheet - was around $50 on Amazon. It turned out to be plenty, had about a third of it left. I bought the bigger sheet in case I messed up and needed extra, but didn't end up needing any extra.

$135 per wheel - no tax. That included removal of the tires, storage of the vehicle on blocks for 2 days, powder coat, remount and rebalance. It would have been about $110 per wheel if I had just dropped off the rims to be powder coated.

Re: Chrome Removal - Blacked Out

FWIW, OEM replica's of that wheel in black gloss are $700.00/ set. I bought them and they're identical to the OEM wheels.

The black grill and vent rings...they're for a 2014-2015 black? Do you know the specific black color they're for? My 2015 is metallic black...

The grill and rings are what come on the Vapor edition - they are gloss black. My 2014 is metallic black and they blend right in. I notice the gloss black more on the Jeep logos - don't notice it at all on grill/rings.

Just a friendly word of caution on replica wheels - keep an eye on them for cracks. Most replicas are made via gravity casting (pour into a mold and let cool) which results in a lesser density aluminum since pressure is not applied in the cooling process. That makes the cost much cheaper, but also means the wheel is more porous and therefore more likely to bend/crack. As long as you catch the cracks early on, you shouldn't have a safety issue.
