How long after you first purchased your Jeep did you remove the emblems on the doors and the liftgate?

Looks great, man. You may have finally convinced me to get the chrome window trim wrapped in gloss black on mine too. Did your tint guy say how it will hold up over time?

Thanks man

I know someone whose had his chrome vinyl covered by the same guy for 18 months now and it still looks great ..that includes 1 hard winter and it still held up ..the installer said it should last a couple years easy though

Not bad for 200$ in my book..that included the roof rails

It's actually a Sarona hood

Overall the fit and finish is very good

Still kind of wish I'd gone with the regular srt8 style hood but I'm into this hood for about 1700$ so I'm going to just use it for a little while

Is the hood scoop functional or just for looks?

Re: If anyone is interested in DE-Chroming-here's some pics

Thanks Guys...I Hated the hood at first but it kind of grew on me...I don't like the profile from the side...the scoop sticks up a bit more than I thought it would from the pics..

The Scoop is functional and does provide some cool air for the Supercharger but I will be changing out the hood next summer I think...

Here's the pics from this morning...I blacked out the nose this weekend-

I also Installed my Blizzak Winter tires on a set of Hyper Silver 20x10" Spider Monkeys
