Well, I've de-chromed some of my Overland. I took off the chrome trim strips and replaced them with the GC lettering. I also swapped out the chrome mirror caps with some body colored ones, had Scott paint the rear brow and swapped out the step pad trim. I'm not sure how I feel about the black step pad trim, although I like that it's not as flashy as the chrome one. Maybe I'll switch back at some point.
Still undecided on swapping out the door handles. Perhaps in the future.
I had the body shop at the dealer do this work for me because I took it in today for an oil change and a creaking noise I had been having for the past 1000 miles. Amazingly enough, the noise mysteriously disappeared and no one, including me, can hear it any longer. They did not fix anything on the car.
I know the service area does not wash the cars after the oil change but I didn't know that the body shop would. Get my car back and the first thing I notice is that it has been washed. I'm instantly annoyed because I've only hand washed it thus far and don't want anyone swirling up my paint. Then I get in the car and immediately see that they have "detailed" the interior as well. With something like Armor All. The dash and doors are now all shiney and greasy looking. Here's the worst part, my previously until today still awesome-new-leather-smelling jeep now smells like some kind of fake new car spray. My Jeep feels defiled now.
I like the mods though. Thoughts?
