They are wrapped in a carbon fiber vinyl.

Re: WK2 Chrome Delete - Mineral Gray, Pics!

Looks awesome.

Did you do the window trim on your own or have it done? If you did it, did you take the pieces off? I curious about how difficult the process is.

Paid $100 to have it all done. It's wrapped without removing the parts. I could actually do it myself if I had the same vinyl they used. Very easy stuff to work with while I watched them.

Re: WK2 Chrome Delete - Mineral Gray, Pics!

How does the new exhaust sound? I'm waiting for someone to come out with one and it's just taking too long and I considered doing what you did. Can you post a sound clip or video. Thanks

Re: WK2 Chrome Delete - Mineral Gray, Pics!

Carbon fiber & black out on the window look great!! Really makes your ride look complete. Im not sure you could do anything else to make it look better. Im sure you'll come up with something.

Re: WK2 Chrome Delete - Mineral Gray, Pics!

Looks Great! Was it just the chrome trim around the windows that were vinyl wrapped, or were there other parts too? What brand and /or type of vinyl was used?

Clean. I wish it came from the factory like that.

The window trim was wrapped in matte black. The grill rings and rear step surround was wrapped in carbon fiber.

Oracle films where used IIRC.

Re: WK2 Chrome Delete - Mineral Gray, Pics!

It is amazing how much better the SRT looks when you delete the chrome. Why the hell does Jeep continue to try and put bling on these????
