2012 WK2 grille update help needed....
 
Again, it's me, seeking input. Anyone have suggestions for replacing the lower front black plastic grille on my 2012 Laredo (WK2) with something more shiny (read: attractive and not overly-pricey)? Have seen the lower chrome (plastic) grille, but it appears the upper part of the item allows the thin strip of body color (my vehicle- pronounced vee-hick-el- is white) to show through, which to my unpracticed in the Jeep way of thinking looks tacky. Any ideas/suggestions are welcome- I even thought of blacking out the white strip with black electricians tape, and wonder if that will harm the paint underneath and if the part requires drilling- something I want to avoid. As I have learned over the many years and fancy cars I have personalized, any aftermarket items added to a vehicle do not enhance it's value, but rather detract the amount of $$ needed to bring it back to OEM- unless you sell it privately, which kind of limits the market to someone with identical taste. This is my opinion, of course others may vary. Every Vette I changed the exhaust and/or wheels on had to be brought back to stock before I could even think of trading/selling it, which leaves me with a set of $1000 Borlas (insert your favorite make of exhaust here) and aftermarket wheel/tire sets to try and sell to someone. Other vehicles- my 97 Grand Cherokee V8, BMW's, ad nauseum have taught me this. Here at the Jersey Shore, or what is left of it after Sandy, is a great market for 4X4's- but still selective, believe it or not. Right after the storm I could not find a 4X4 anything other than a Mercedes to buy anywhere, and anything used was snapped up instantly. Oh well, such is life....sorry to run on....:sleepy:
