Re: Summit - too much chrome?

The less chrome, the better.

Way too much chrome...the plastic chrome turns to crap really quick with the winter road grime around here.

Alternatively, you could just get the spinners.

Re: Summit - too much chrome?

I guess I'm one of the few that likes the amount of Chrome on my Overland.
However when I put Tow hooks on in the summer, they will be the standard ones, not the chrome.

I've only had my Jeep since beginning of December (2011) and already the chrome strip is corroding like crazy.

I had the chrome emblems on my Dodge Grand Caravan replaced twice under warranty. The 19" Chrome wheels on my Pacifica were replaced twice under warranty.
The second time, they said no more. The only solution was not to use them in the winter. So I bought winter wheels.

Now that's a different spin on an alternative.

Re: Summit - too much chrome?

I think that on the Mineral Gray, the chrome looks amazing. It's why I bought the Overland Summit. Its such a beautiful car. I think the chrome on the Bright Silver also looks quite nice. The chrome grill insert REALLY makes the Jeep look amazing. It really should be part of every JGC.

Re: Summit - too much chrome?

MY JGC is bright silver and I think the chrome blends very well and isn't "blingy" (if that even is a word)

So far I haven't found anything about my JGC that I dislike. I don't even care about the gas consumption, especially when I listen to that Hemi roar.

I agree. Chrome looks great if you got the color that works with it....not black, which is already a "streety" color. Silver and MG are the best for chrome and IMO the combos that make the GC look more like what it costs!

Re: Summit - too much chrome?

I'm going to have to agree. Silver and Mineral Gray do look ok with chrome. But I would still lean towards color matching.

Re: Summit - too much chrome?

I agree that they have the perfect amount of chrome. I like it! I also think the chrome accents do look good on mineral grey, silver and.....stone white!.....

I use Meguiars cleaner wax and it removes all the corrosion/rust looking spots, takes a little bit but has worked well for me.
