Tailgate Chrome - Has Anyone Painted?

I absolutely love the lines of the rear end of the new GC's with the dual exhaust with the V8. However, I have started to feel that I do not like the rear chrome on the tailgate. It looks like every other less than exciting SUV on the market (Lexus, Toyota, etc., etc.).

Has anyone had the rear chrome painted to match the body?

His name is MooseHead. I'll let him post it up, but he got his color matched with his paint.
