Don't get me wrong I like hits of chrome on the darker GC's but like others I think jeep goes OCD on it. Believe it or not Im actually adding chrome to my black 14 Laredo


That red really pops! Nice ride!
Yes, this would be the best most modern look!

I had some fun doing it, the weather was great, overall I like the looks much better, less attention grabbing, not a chrome guy myself...

Did you remove any of this stuff before painting? How did the white plastidip match up with the jeep color? I have pretty much the same look going hate the chrome and need to fix asap. Completely new to the plastidip process

I covered up everything with newspaper. Removed taillights for the black plastidip. Chrome mirrors didn't work longer than a couple weeks with the white plastidip (turned a bit yellow) while the black antenna stayed 100% white for more than 6 months now (maybe to do with the black base vs. chrome).
Still 100% happy with the plastidip.
