Tail light bezels on Granite WK2: Black or Gray?

I have an Overland in granite and I want to make the tail light bezels and the Jeep logo darker. I can't decide which would look better with the color: glossy black like the SRT bezels, or the dark gray like the Altitude bezels. I may end up going the plastidip route but then there's the anthracite or black choice there as well.

I've been scouring this forum for pics but haven't come back with much, or the pics aren't very clear. Does anybody have/know of pictures of a granite WK2 with either black or dark grey bezels? I'm most interested in how they look in direct sunlight.

Re: Tail light bezels on Granite WK2: Black or Gray?

I just did a write up for one in the how to section. I put the gloss black on my granite Laredo.

Nvm- just saw your post on my write up. Should've checked that first.

I think the gray would be subtle, yet eye-catching.

Re: Tail light bezels on Granite WK2: Black or Gray?

I think I like the contrast that the black gives you. What did you do to the 4x4 badge to get it black? Do you notice a color difference between it and the bezels?

I ordered the black emblems from allmoparparts. No color difference is noticeable.
