going to get all the chrome gone, I ordered the front tow hooks in gloss black, rear tail light in gloss black, going to paint the oem mirror caps since we can't order them separately or I'm just slow on finding the part number.
the front chrome on bumper I'm going to order the base model to replace that one

I didn't wrap the handle, I wrapped the trim right below the lift-gate handle.

Keep in mind that Summit isn't really marketed as an "off-road" vehicle and the majority of Summit buyers are not going to install tow hooks. Now if that rumor I seem to recall is true, there may be a replacement filler for that area that does have detachable cut-outs for tow hook installation. If not, plenty of folks have carefully done the cutting and put on the tow hooks...as I mentioned there are threads about that. FYI, this has been the case since the Summit was instituted as a separate trim level with MY14. With MY11-13, the Summit was a "package" on Overland and as you can see in my signature photo, tow hooks were standard/available.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

thanks for the info. maybe i'll do some digging for that replacement filler. it's a mod i'd like to do eventually - i don't have a particular use for them right now, but don't want to end up in a position where i need them and don't have them. maybe once it cools off some.

Cleaned it up real good with alcohol/water and a microfiber towel to remove any grease, and applied the vinyl with a hair dryer.

Installed Phillips Ultinon LED fog bulbs. Made it easy on myself and removed the front wheels to pull back the wheel liner to see what I was doing better. Took about 1/2 hour start to finish. Haven't driven at night yet but they seem very bright! Bulbs courtesy of xenondepot.

What is the bulb number for our fogs?

I like having them for "that one time" when they could come in handy. It's the same reason I carry a proper rear tow ring for the hitch receiver in with my spare along with a tow strap. I've used all three points at one time or another; not for "self extraction", but to assist with another vehicle that's been stuck. And none of those times has any "off road" been involved. With a 5000+ lb vehicle and capable drive train, that kind of utility is useful.
