Need opinions on which setup. Chrome or painted? Pics of both inside!
 
So I recently got lucky and found someone selling a pair of painted mirror caps. I figure they are easy installation and can be reversed at anytime if I want to go back to stock. In a earlier thread I posted pictures of the removal of those large chrome side moulding pieces. Since I did this I thought about continuing the chrome removal.
I am 100% happy with the side moulding removal and addition of the SRT side letters. This morning I installed the painted mirror caps and removed the chrome fog bezels for my original black ones.
Here are some pictures to compare both setups and I am undecided. I will leave my Jeep like this for a few days and see if it grows on me. The cool thing is I can always swap the parts back around for a different look :-)

Looking for opinions, which look do you guys like more? chrome mirrors and fog bezels, or painted mirrors and black bezels?

Thanks,
James

I would love to do the black SRT headlights, but I can imagine that costing a pretty penny. As for the grill im still not 100% sold on the black grill of the Altitude model. I do however think a painted grill would look pretty nice! The best IMO would be the SRT grill which is painted and has a little chrome on it, but everyone here says its not compatible with the non-SRT bumper. When I compare pictures of the SRT and standard grill/bumper area they look identical. What is it that people say doesnt work?

theres a thread here where a member added the SRT grill. I though they just ground down some tabs or something?

Look on car-part.com for the headlamps. I got my Durango black HID, brand new for half price

This may sound backwards, but definietly like the painted mirror covers but do like the chrome fog bezels, especially on that color (darker color probably stick with the black).

You know I thought about that to. I might put on the chrome fog bezels and see how that looks with the painted caps. Its easy enough to do! I will try that and post a picture as well.

Thanks

^ This is exactly what I was going to post.

I like the painted side mirror caps better than the chrome ones. However, I also think the chrome fog light bezels look better than the black ones.

I would have painted mirror caps and painted fog light bezels. My WK2 has the black fog light bezels which I am getting painted soon to match the car.

BTW I love your SRT "Grand Cherokee" badge on the doors!

Alright you guys talked me into it. When I get home from work tonight I will throw the chrome fog bezels back on and see how it looks.
Thanks for all the opinions.
