Painting rear brow - Jeep Chrome or Paint?
 
I pulled my rear brow and will be having it painted shortly. I can't decide if I want to leave the "JEEP" chrome or just paint the entire strip including the "JEEP" ? I'm torn...I will NOT be color matching everything. I plan to leave everything chrome with only the side door strips being replaced with the GC lettering. Thoughts?

The color is Dk Charcoal Pearl.

picture of each. I went with all painted on mine and very happy with it. Either way looks good.

I vote for the Jeep Logo in chrome, unless you are planning to completely de-chrome the car.

I personally like to see variatons in color so I would not paint it all one color.

Besides I think the Chrome letters look more OEM.

I'm going with keeping the JEEP chrome.

That's the correct choice.

That Dark Charcoal makes me sort of jealous. I love that color.

As you can see I'm partial to the chrome lettering. Either way it changes the rear dramatically for the better- I can't stand the rear brow all chrome and think it's the biggest miss Jeep made on this vehicle. My $.02

Another vote for keeping "Jeep" in chrome - that looks nice and almost OEM. Mine is all black, but I've also removed most of the exterior chrome already.

Home sick and in bed so I thought I'd entertain myself a bit and help you out. Not going to win any awards for photoshop awesomeness but hopefully it gives you and idea of what your car might look like:http://www.vipfishingcharters.com/offsite/brow.jpg

^^^ Thanks. not that there aren't any on here, but I'll be sure to post pics. i agree about the chrome strip...it reminds me too much of the GMC Terrain.

That looks very nice. Nice tires too.

If you were to paint it the body color, where does one go for the paint? Do dealers have it in a spray can? I think I am going to do this on my MG, but body color.
