Re: Removing liftgate chrome strip
Thanks for the comments gents. +1 to the mirrors, that was a huge visual improvement IMO, I was lucky enough to get a set of take offs from someone who wanted chrome. I'm still thinking about the grill, not sure, but it looks great painted.
Scott did this painted piece for circa $80 plus shipping, maybe it would be cheaper if you kept the Jeep logo same color. No brainer.
I got the replacement rear fixture, which includes both the chrome strip and wiring chassis, for $100 from ebay off a wreck job. You can probably source the chrome strip only for similar cost, not sure (or maybe go ghetto for 7-10 days while Scott gets your OEM done). Only the chrome strip is needed and fits hatch lids both with and without the rear view camera. The button is also painted and is a separate piece.
