Black Altitude - What color to dip badges?

I have a 2015 WK2 Altitude in black. Want to plasti dip the badges to give it a little character. What colors have you done? Please post pics if possible. Would love yellow, but I think that will be too crazy of a contrast. Red, blue, and lime green are at the top of my list.

Nothing, it would just cheapen the look. I'm all for mods as long as they're tasteful. Only thing I could see looking good is maybe a gunmetal as long as you dipped some other stuff like your wheels the same.

I agree. It's when people get bored and look for cheap mods to do when a vehicle starts going downhill. I say leave them alone, gloss black looks best hoe it comes on the Altitude.

Or... Whatever color you like. I'd like to see the return of nice badges with an accent color. There are plenty of people that use contrast successfully. I'm not a plasti dip fan but it's an easy enough mod to change or reverse.

Yeah I prefer the contrast of the paint and trim too, but at the same time I'm not a fan of the chrome.

If I had a black Jeep I'd use the silver plastidip on the trim. That way it would have the silver/black look without the sparkle.

'cept the door handles and mirror caps - those look best matched to the body color.
