To Paint or not
 
Hey guys, i've just graduated and for once in the past 4 years i have time to sit back in relax until I start work in september. Naturally I decided to join the forum and begin to put some more work back into the Grand cherokee and I've come to a stupid head scratching point.

Right now I've got the aries guard on in the front and a set of broken metal tail lamp guards in my garage. My friend just hooked me up with those mopar covers pictured below and im wondering if its worth painting them to match the color of the jeep. ive seen a few here in there mostly silver and red srt8's that have had them done and it looks good from a street standpoint. Right now its either keep em black, have em painted steel blue metallic (not a problem getting it done) or possibly get a new set of metal guards and install them myself, pricey but hey I just finished paying the thing off and hole in my pocket isnt as bad as it was. Sound off, thanks in advance

Personally I think you should remove them. They don't look right on Jeeps.

IMHO the new one looks better, I personally am not a fan of those guards but if I had to choose would be the new one

the mopar guards are abs plastic that stick on the tail light right? while the aries are metal and mount with screws?

I would just take them off honestly, but the lower ones are better

Yeah the aries are metal and would have to be fixed up to throw back on. I think im gonna run with the mopar ones and see how they look. I'll post some pics eventually.

Not a fan of tail light guards on the WK. But if I HAD to have a set the mopar look alot better.
