hard to tell from the picture but only the top surface of the letters is left chrome. the sides of the chrome letters are painted body color. this wasn't intentional on my part. i didn't think to tell scott not to paint the sides of the letters. i think it probably makes the chrome JEEP letters a little more subdued because all of the sides are body colored. not sure how i feel about this but i'll be living with it for the foreseeable future.
the valley outlining the letters was intentionally painted body color by scott. first i had him leave it chrome but then it looked weird so he went back and painted it.
I can't decide if I like the chrome on the sides, the Grand Cherokee lettering or no chrome and no lettering. I guess I like them all about equally, maybe the chrome with a slight edge so I'll leave that for now. I'm definitely getting the liftgate bar in brilliant black and the mirrors, just waiting for the Altitude liftgate bar part to be available. I was just thinking about this today.
Any info on the liftgate bar from the altitude package? I definitely want to pursue this for replacing the liftgate bar and the chrome step.
