If you are set on de-chroming This is how I would do it if it were mine.
Rear brow body color matched, but leave the bumper guard as is with the small chrome strip.
The side I would peel the chrome moulding off and add the grand Cherokee letters. Get painted mirror caps, and painted door handles look decent either way. The window trim I would leave chrome to accent the small amounts of chrome left around.
As for the front I think a paint matched grill with the mesh left chrome would look sharp.
I personally would remove that big chrome bar thing in the front. I'm not sure what the point of it is except being big and bulky and kind of an eye sore. But again, that's just my opinion and you may like it.
So my vote goes to a partial de-chrome with color matching some of the main parts. Keep us up to date on your progress. If you decide to leave it stock it's still a beautiful Jeep and you can't go wrong. I still say remove that thing in the front though either way ;-)

Yes the roof rails for sure black, although another option is to just remove those and put the SRT roof rail delete ones up there. But either way your right painting those red would not look good.
The rear brow I say go body color it looks very slick that way. The black brow looks good, but kind of stands out unless you have a lot of other black on the car.
Window trim absolutely not red. That would look weird to. Either leave that chrome or go flat or gloss black your choice, either would look decent. I tried plasti-dip just to see how it would look but I peeled it off after a day. It was ok, but plasti-dip wasn't perfect looking so I wanted it off.
Front grill red and leave the insert chrome.
Rear hatch trim leave it chrome or put the Laredo black one on either way looks good.
