Looking for opinions...

Just wanted your opinions...should I stay with the chrome grill or swap it out with the body color one when my wife's lease is up? (we both have black cherokees)

Re: Looking for opinions...

I haven't added any chrome since I'm really not much of a chrome guy either. Just whatever came stock on the truck (i.e. side molding, window trim & chrome stock wheels)

Re: Looking for opinions...

If your not a chrome guy then I would swap it out and sell the chrome grille. I have got rid of most of my chrome. The only thing left is the front chrome strip on the bottom of my bumper and the rear strip on the rear bumper. Those are next.

Re: Looking for opinions...

Fredo, have you thought about nightshading them? That's something I was looking into once I get the SRT kit going.. There isn't a single piece of chrome on my jeep lol!

Back to the OP.. I would change it, heck even go for a black SRT8 grill, that would look even better

Re: Looking for opinions...

I've been toying with the idea myself. I really like the srt8 grill, just not sure if i should do away with the chrome and go with the painted one. Probably do some other mods first and then decide on the grill. I say go for it, what the hell. Post some pics if you get it! :d

No I havent thought about nightshading them. On the front I will have it painted to match the jeep and on the rear I am still undecided on painting it black or color matching it..

Re: Looking for opinions...
