I just Plasti-dip'd my grille and wheels yesterday, you can spray them with out removing them from the car;
Park the Jeep on a flat surface(garage preferably)
Grab a deck of cards, index cards, pokemon cards, something that is a card
Stick the cards between the wheel and the tire around till all parts of your tire are protected.
Get some greentape(the tape is actually green helps with super paint jobs like the one you're about to do
With a flathead screwdriver, and tape.. place the tape on the bolts as far as you can.. since they are hexagons, put 6 pieces of tape for each side. and use the screwdriver to flatten and increase the bond.
Stand back, spray away.. more light coats vs heavy coats is what I hear, but I did 2 heavy coats..
That's what I did, because when I tried to take the wheel off, I almost put the wheels back on with the bolts not on securely xD
For the Grille, check out this link to get it removed without removing your entire bumper;http://www.wjjeeps.com/grilles/grillesrem.htm
Enjoy and goodluck chap!
