I was thinking about getting it glossified and have it looking like the Trailhawk a lil bit, but still a lil different.


Also i did clear matte dip on the side door moldings and it came out almost the same color as the paint so i didn't like it because there no diff. So i did the gun metal and that definitely looks terrible. So i might be pulling those out and replacing with the grand black lettering.

Here is my 2013 stone white with plasti dipped rear in black. To give you an idea of what it looks like. IMO I'd go with black. Gun metal is unique though, you don't see that very often.

Thanks for putting this up. Helps me in deciding what I wanna do with my chrome. I'm gonna try the gunmetal gray, hoping that'll go well with my mineral gray body color

I thought that was mineral grey but couldn't tell for sure. That would look good with the gunmetal. Whatever color you decide to do, I would def consider matching the front grill. I matched mine black and it ties it all together. Looks awesome. Keep us posted with pics once you have it finished!

Btw back rear chrome piece pops right off, its only a few clips on top and bottom. Front grill chrome also pops off with about 6 clips on top and 6 on bottom. Makes it a lot easier to plasti dip.

Nyates,

What tires and rims do you have on your Jeep? What size are the rims and tires as well. Finally, do you have a lift kit or a leveling kit on your Jeep? I have been looking at rims and tires and I love the aggressive look your tires and rims give your Jeep.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the interest RoMe2. Definitely an aggressive look and I don't think you'll find another wk2 like it. Rims are 17x8 machined black Rockstar XD series. Wheels are 265/70R17 Nitto Trail Grapplers. No lift or leveling kit. Offset is important though, 5.88". These are the largest you can go with stock height. The tires measure 31.56". If you plan to do any off-roading or flexing I would def recommend a lift. I do mostly highway and trails so I haven't had any rubbing. Good luck and post pics if you decide to have them or something similar put on!

Thanks Nyates, I was looking at getting the RRO leveling kit and putting those tires on in the size of 33's. I haven't found a rim I like just yet to pull the trigger so to speak. I will be plastic dipping my front grill and rear brow. With that being said, did anyone use the clear coat over the top of the plastic dip or just left it as is? I hear it's an easy process and if you mess up you can just peel it right off and start over again.

I was also considering the leveling kit but I like the stock height with the stance of the new 10" wide wheels. I have my front grill and rear brow plasti dipped black. I like the matte look without the clear coat but that's my preference. The 33's are big, I'm not sure that they'll fit with only a leveling kit, might need a small lift. I haven't looked into it either but if they will fit that will look awesome. Keep us posted and post pics.

Ive decided that i dont like the gun metal gray,,, i removed it about a week later, I'm thinking to smoke it a lil and see how i like it....

kinda suprised no one mentioned this but in my opinion youre taillights look pretty crappy
dull and amateurish
Thats ur opinion and u can keep it to yourself, they are plastic dipped and its a matte finish... Im not surprise since most people are not assholes, and amateurish, well i dont mind that since i can still take pride in doing it myself instead of saying i paid some dude 200 for a small spray job..

I guess ur momma never showed u manners, if u have nothing good to say the dont say nothing, if u have to say something, there are more better ways to say it than just flat out insulting the job of someone else...
