I also had this done this afternoon. Apparently it's unbelievably tedious work. It took two professional installers about two hours to complete it.

Thanks but if you were to walk up to my jeep and open the doors you would think. "Damn what happened here". Just looks really bad in more than a couple spots. It will be nice to have a pro do it and get back that clean look.

Post some pics of your window trim blacked out.

Looking to do mine also in gloss black. I got an estimate from a local wrap shop for $250 for windows trim and taillight bezel. But i ended up buying the srt bezel. So my guess for just the windows trim will be around $200

Sounds to be about the going rate.

2014 JK Sahara Unlimited 18". Picked them up off Craigslist for $300 got all 5 rims with less that 100 miles on the tires. Came with the sensors and linked up after about driving one mile. The spare fits in the tire well with out the trays and the lid closes all the way. Tires are 255/70/18 Bridgestone's Dueler AT.

Can you post some wheel and tire pictures in the 18" tire and wheel thread? They look awesome. I just got some Mopar machined lip/black center I need to post over there. Picked them up from a fellow member in the classified section. Here's the thread:

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Loaded about 15 5/4"x6"x10' deck boards on the roof rack at HomeDepot. Immediately realized I surpassed the 150lb limit... racks bent to flat and half the boards were actually on top of the rack stand, and not on the middle of the rack. Took my chance, very short trip and no bumps that threatened the racks to break. Still, wont get 15 boards at a time next time.

Had that same set on my rig bf I swapped them out for something meatier with Rubicon 17 inches. Just saying, they looked bad ass when blacked out. Imho

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Installed dual exhaust lower valence and oem hitch. Unfortunately I am one of the unlucky ones as my gc is not pre-wired. The dual exhaust portion will be happening this week. Thanks ajag for pipes awhile backImageUploadedByJeepGarage1469921840.073601.jpg

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I removed my suspension once again. I installed the oem srt springs, felt it was a little bouncy. This weekend I installed bilstiens on all four corners. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1469977552.918538.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1469977592.359502.jpg
