Thanks man. Read both threads, and have a few questions:
- Who's the 'Scott' guy? Couldn't find his info. Won't paint the parts this time, but would like to have his forum ID handy.
- It was revealed we DO NOT need the more expensive camera 'brow' if only changing the chromed part, like me. Great tip
. Just need to find out if the black button comes with just the painted brow.
- Can the button's wire connector be removed from the outside, without having to remove anything else? Nobody mentioned that.
-Has anybody replaced the chromed surround on the rear bumper's 'step' with the plastic one from the Altitude edition? I was going to order it from the Mopar parts site, but the descriptions didn't match the drawing numbers at all, and need to make sure it's the right part. Seems like the part just pulls to the rear of the vehicle, but when I get the new one will know for sure.

Since the SRT is 'brilliant black crystal pearl' in color, I assume 'brilliant black' is going to be the closest match, correct?

Thanks man, but since truck is brilliant black, I think the brilliant black part will match almost perfectly. The lower cladding is brilliant black, I think, and you need to really pay attention to see that it's a different color than the truck. It looks body colored, even from a foot away.
Finally, the black 'Jeep' part and 'SRT' on the hitch bezel is all the truck needs IMO. And none stand out being body-colored, which I liked. I thought I was going to really like the smooth cover, but I didn't, so will order the $140+ brilliant black. If truck was any other color, I'd have it body-colored, but glad I can just order it that way. Truck looks awesome without any badges. I prefer it low key. Anybody that knows cars will know what it is. No need to have ugly badges on it
