Painting the chrome trim on the inside of the 2014 tail lights

Has anyone been successful in opening a 2014 tail light to paint the inside black like the SRT? (attached a picture for reference)

Any tips would be much appreciated.

OR.... anyone have an SRT, prefer the chrome version and want to swap?

Re: Painting the chrome trim on the inside of the 2014 tail lights

I have no experience taking apart WK2 tail lights, but if they are anything like the headlights I heard the adhesive on those will NOT come apart even after some time in the oven. So unfortunately unless someone had a pair of junk lights to try heating, its something that I would imagine isn't doable....atleast not without significant cutting and modifying. By that point might as well just buy SRT lights and sell the originals. It appears they are already being reproduced by aftermarket companies and the cheapest I have seen for the complete set is on ebay for just under $700.

The chrome you're seeing is on the outside of the light and they're replaceable with the black bezels from on the SRT's and Altitude III.

2014-2015 SRT8 Black Taillamp Bezels #SRT8TaillampBezels

Other sites have the parts priced more affordable. Just have JustforJeeps price match it.
You can also vinyl wrap the parts or if you don't mind them looking cheap ...Plastidip.

That's not what he is talking about. He is talking about the blacked out INTERNALS that the SRT has. Not the replaceable exterior bezels.
