What Do You Think of My De-Chromed Summit?

I still have some chrome, but not nearly as much anymore. Let me know what you think.

First up, stock



Next I went with vinyl wrap





Finally, painted

The wheels are definitely on the list, along with the door handles and roof rack. I am just not sure what to do with the wheels. Sell them and get something different or powder coat these.

Swap them out for some black chrome spider monkeys.

Re: What Do You Think of My De-Chromed Summit?

Except for the headlights and wheels, it looks like a Laredo.

Re: What Do You Think of My De-Chromed Summit?

So did you just pop off all the chrome pieces and get them painted individually? Happy with how they came out and match the paint?

I don't mind the front end chrome, but the mirrors really bother me. Did you pop off the mirror caps to paint them? Easy as that?

You can powder coat the wheels for around $100/wheel. I'm very happy with how mine turned out.

Re: What Do You Think of My De-Chromed Summit?

Looks great to me. Plan on doing the same to my Overland if it ever gets here. I already have the black grill rings, fog bezels, tailight bezels, Jeep emblems ready to go. If you don't mind me asking what was the price for painting those pieces. As the body colored pieces are really starting to grow on me. With some new wheels you will have completely different summit. Keep up the good work. Very nice.
