I think it would look better with it painted color-matched except for the word JEEP which could be either left chrome or painted a brushed silver maybe, I think would look good.

Also, how do you paint chrome?

Where are you getting it done? I would be interested in seeing what it would cost to do mine.

Would make the jeep look too much like a minivan. I would skip it. But I am in favor of debadging whenever possible.

I've taken my JGC to two different body shops, who both refuse to paint that piece. This is even after I tried to explain the "proper" way to do it, and sign a waiver, etc.....

Please, MOPAR....make the grille and rear piece in body color for the aftermarket!

I can get mirror caps in Laredo form (ie. painted body color,) and door handles from a Laredo X (ie. painted body color.) I already removed the door guards...just waiting on these final pieces above...

Whats so special that they wont paint it? Isnt it just a plastic coating that you can sand off like old paint?

Maybe they should have offered Laredo with body matching trim instead of "bling". :)

I have a 2010 Acura TL and I had both the front and the rear chrome pieces body color painted ( as did many others apparently ) and they did a great job. It cost about 1000 bucks as i recall. You might want to give an Acura dealer a call to see if they will do it or refer you to someone else who will. I like the looks of the chrome on my Jeep but to each his own.
Good luck.
