Chrome rings on instrument cluster
 
I found these on eBay the other day, I can't decide if their worth it what does everyone think?

I asked the guy how hard they were to install he sent me a video of how to do it....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgVdOWHssGA

That's what I was thinking too I like how they look like the oem ones in the limited and you don't have to buy a whole new cluster and deal with all the issues of installing that just to get the chrome around the guages

that is how they are on all 07+ wk's you can just buy another instrument cluster pretty cheap on ebay and save some hassle.

the clusters are easy to remove...just 4 screws...but you will have mileage issues with another cluster unless you find a used one with the exact same mileage....LOL

Yeah i wouldnt want to buy a new cluster, that just seems like a lot of unnecessary work haha. I just wish these were like $20 cheaper $40 just seems a little steep for 4 chrome rings

I really like the rings and would like them for my jeep, but at $52 I don't think they're worth it, IMO. I was thinking of just opening it up and painting the rims with some paint that matches the body of my Jeep. Anyone done this?

I did......the rings are VERY fragile. They just snap onto the cluster. I used a plastic putty knife to remove them. Just use caution...

Sorry, I was trying to say I do not have the chrome rings now, so instead of paying $50 something for the rings, I was just going to paint the part they would snap into. You think that would look ghetto? Or would it be okay?
