Does your WK have some sort of front park sense radar? I have not seen that on north american WK, probably expensive for me to retrofit to my WK.
Thanks, yea the matt black complements the Mineral Grey colour. Was always in the plan when first bought
The front park sensor came factory (2009 Overland) I think the truck was manufactured as an export model (so it may be the WK or the WH). I noticed that the stock rims also don't seem to be available in the US for the '09 Overland .. but they are sitting in storage anyways.. On the flip side, I tried to install a remote starter kit, though it wouldn't work as export models are missing a module in the steering column to disable the steering lock when started remotely; you win and loose some I guess.

The wife's car is also the same colour, I think most cars look cool in this light grey. You can always vinyl the whole car

Yea plasti-dip is a quick and easy option, good if your unsettled about going perm. Though once I saw the change I confirmed there is no way I want to go back to chrome ! Unless the ride is a vintage with 'real' chrome, modern day automotive Chrome is plastic wanna-be metal, where matt black is honest

besides the average high end car doesn't have much chrome (for the above particular reason I guess), here is an example I saw the other day (drool):
