New WK2 Member Checking In

What's up ya'll?? I just joined after several nudges from my homey who has been on here for years (like since 09'), and is a GC nut/guru (WK and WKII).

Anyways, back in June I picked up a brand new (112 miles) 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited 4X4, fully loaded (Luxury Group II, 20" wheels, etc.). Though I liked the look of the Altitude edition's outside, I wanted more upgrades on the inside, and really wanted the Quadra Track 2 4WD, thus deciding to go with the souped up Limited for the same price (if not cheaper) than a fully loaded Altitude.

At this point I'm working to eliminate all traces of exterior chrome that comes standard on the Limited, and of course I'd like to "black-out" any piece of chrome. I've sourced a new (all OEM) matte black honeycomb grille insert, gloss black grille rings, gloss black fog lamp bezels, matte black front bumper fascia insert, as well as gloss black rear tail light/turn signal bezels, and a matte black cargo step border. I'm looking for any recommendations on how to best "black-out" the side mirrors, and door handles (which are all chrome plated). Any thoughts, comments, or recommendations would be appreciated.

Happy to be onboard!!

Re: New WK2 Member Checking In

New to the site, new to the Jeep family and new to the forums so major newbie!
I bought a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and it has all options but looking to now customize it a bit to be different. Any good ideas of where to look for add-on's that are good for this vehicle, also any in Canada?

Looking great K-Dawg!! Just ordered the full LED treatment for the Silver14...looking forward to doing some mods in the next couple weeks.

Did you get rid of your chrome mirror caps?

AND POST MORE PICS!!!

Just stumbled upon this thread- looks great! What was your method for blacking out the lower front end trim? I am in the same boat with my limited 15. Need to tackle those mirrors first, I was thinking of scuffing them priming and then using OEM PXR to match....
