Black or Chrome Window Trim Opinions?
 
2 Attachment(s)
I put some electrical tape over my chrome window trim to see how I'd like it black. If I decide to wrap it, I'll do the rails on top also. Can't make up my mind, so leaning toward keeping it chrome. Thoughts? Thanks.

You gonna do the roof rails too?

I'm not sure, if you went black you'd probably need the wheels black to match, I think the chrome suits the silver wheels if that makes sense. It looks good either way so but my vote goes with chrome for now.

What I'm thinking. Not planning to completely murder this thing out, so not sure if black trim works with my Overland wheels. Thanks.

Looks really sharp with the window trim black, and I wouldn't change the wheels either. Not a big fan of too much black, but on your Jeep I like the slight change. Either way...nice looking Jeep!

I like the trim blacked out since the door handles and mirrors are painted. Leave the wheels alone, and leave the roof rails alone too. Looks nice

Love the black trim, and leave the wheels and roof rails as is.

I'd leave the chrome. Gives it a little style and color scheme. I didn't like it at first on my wk but it's growing on me. But you pay the bills. Do you son

I like the black over the chrome. I'm debating this as well, I like the chrome but there is a bit too much chrome on the vehicle.

I think you've had it right all along. Keep it classy with just a bit of chrome, don't murder it out with black wheels. With that said, if I could only dechrome one thing on the WK2 it would be the window trim. Personally, I would like to see a more permanent solution to replacing the trim rather than the less permanent and more maintenance of plasti dipping or 3M tape. I was thinking about doing the tape like others in this forum have done but I don't know how long that would last.

I'm with most here, if you are going to keep the chrome lettering and not paint the wheels i'd leave the subtle chrome pieces you have as they are. If you were going to go for more blacked out I would definitely black out the window trim then.
