I went a little nuts with the masking because it was windy and I didn;t feel like dealing at all with over spray.

Here is the work - Badge Dipping - Album on Imgur


Anyone have any tips on how to remove the chrome directly under the windows? That's the last of the chrome and I don't think It'll look great if painted on the truck. I want to take it off..
You weren't joking about the masking job Looks good tho!

Your better off painting them on the jeep. The ones all the way in the back are molded into the glass so they cant come off. Painting them on the truck is easy

Looks good. You can get the Jeep logos and other badging in black if you want after the plasti starts to fail. Jeep did a "high altitude" edition so there are OEM badges in black now, they can be had on eBay for around $10 or so. There's gloss black as well if you'd like, but the altitude badges are satin. If you do pursue the replacement badges, be sure not to get the standard Cherokee badges, the font is all wrong, I personally hate it but to each his own. You'll be able to notice the difference in the pics. The moldings snap off but it's a pain, not really worth the risk as they break fairly easily. And as previously stated, the rear is integrated and would require glass removal.

I think they are clipped on, with the exception of the rear windows they are glued, so you have to paint the rear whilst on the truck. I also removed all chrome
