The reat chrome brow is attatched with 4 10mm nuts fron inside the hatch. Remove the interior trim and then you can unbolt it. Once its off you can remove the chrome from the brow assembly. The headlights are black altitude lights. There is a specific process for painting chrome to get paint to stick. Involves a special primer. Theres also more steps involved to paint the brow and the black emblem. You have to paint and clear the brow body color, then sand it and paint the emblem and clear it again. Let me know if you need any pointers. I did all of mine

That might be a little much. Black door handles are typically a feature of base model vehicles. Id go body color

You can also look at just for jeeps and allmoparparts.com. Thought the altitude headlights were around 250-275 for the pair

What would you use to paint the lenses? High temp matte black? Also what's the best glue to put them back together?
