A few Body questions

So I am thinking about adding a front SRT bumper.

I have a 2007 5.7L WK and want to keep the front grill. Can I paint the chrome green? or will I have to buy a painted one and have it color matched?

Also, will my factory fogs drop right into the bumper or will I have to get a new ones?

I want to paint or cover my chrome window strip black, and remove my chrome door strip. I know a body shop will do this for me, but how much am I looking at?

Will it be cheaper if I just buy new black moldings instead of painting and completely removing?

What are the part numbers for the trim?

Anyone want to trade chrome for black?

You can have a shop paint the chrome but it would probably cost as much as buying a cheap used one of ebay or a new one

Also, will my factory fogs drop right into the bumper or will I have to get a new ones?

yes

I want to paint or cover my chrome window strip black, and remove my chrome door strip. I know a body shop will do this for me, but how much am I looking at?

I was quoted $350 to do the same

Will it be cheaper if I just buy new black moldings instead of painting and completely removing?

yes...they are aboutr $130 for all four doors

What are the part numbers for the trim?

I got this one Scott

From Justforjeeps:

Set of 4 Black Side Moldings for the 2005-2006 or 2007-2009 Grand Cherokee. Same as OEM Laredo Model. Please select model year above. 2007-2009 is a skinner molding similar to the chrome side molding width on the limited model. 2005-2006 is the molding as pictured which is wider. Both molding styles are interchangeable between model years.

Here is a link to buy:
http://www.justforjeeps.com/wkblsimo.html

Definately cheaper to just buy them to paint em. And defiantely cheaper to vinyl the window moldings because the rear ones require the window to be removed to do so

Another dumb question i am sure has been answered, will an 08 grill fit on a 07 jeep? If yes, will that cause problems with an 07 srt front bumper?

Re: A few Body questions

an 08 grill will not fit the 05-07.....different design, taller etc.
