I am indifferent to it. I mean I have a Black TJ but I am slowly putting more color into it but I don't want everything black.

I like it. Easy to touch up when trail rash raises its ugly head. Hate chrome, so black is the only real option.

I am not fond of blacked out anything, except I do like tinted windows, the kind you can see through.

I like color AND black. So like Red body THEN black. Or say my Orange Jeep with Black. All Black has to be done right to look good, but Cavediver does bring up a nice point...

I have stainless hood latches and aluminum wheels and an OSU decal(hence my love of orange), I want to paint my hood where I had fire damage orange, I just spray painted it back black hee hee, and maybe my jeep logos, I like jeeps with character, not a fan of my wheels but I have 5 matching ones and I am a broke A$$

Black looks best IMO. Anything but CHROME!

Over here in SoCal it is not that common now. We were doing it with our dirtbikes and on occasion you see it on a van. But I still do like the murdered out look. On a YJ it just looks plain mean

Rob, what is the "murdered" look?

I have a white Jeep - black accessories BUT I don't like everything to be completely black so I have little dabs of red here and there to break it up a bit.
Look on the steering skid & diff guards:


I still don't understand why everyone hates chrome.
If I wanted it on my Jeep, I'd put it there. Ta hell with what everyone else thought.

Hah! This is an old picture, you can see where the doggoned blackpaint was chipping off of my headlight rings!

I like the blackout look on Jeeps n it is not a trend or a fad for me. My 87' came with some chrome like the grill n bumper from the factory...I've blacked out the bumper but the grill will only get hints of black like the bezels n maybe a black insert just because when u go changing everything original u kinda sink its soul. Hits of colors here n there are cool just not over done...I do have to say I despise chrome bumper tube guards yuack!...maybe on some cj's it looks good but not for me...in the end it's all about your own feel like if u're comfortable in your own skin so, to each is own...make it your own.

Yep that is it. You usually make everything matte black. You can do it with original black gloss paint but everything else is matte. Looks sic but only on certain vehicles. Hey are BIG and Rob still on? I forgot about them.

I don't see the blacked out look so much when I'm out riding around.
I see more chrome rims.
And where's the "who gives a flying turd" option?

This sounds like two different issues. Are you trying to say that the rappers with misogynistic lyrics are also gay and AIDS-infected, but closeted and infecting women? Because I don;t think that's the case.

I like the blacked out look but only if its COMPLETELY blacked out, and I mean Everything then I could appreciate it. I saw a blacked out hummer yesterday but its headlights were still white... so I just laughed at it

I'm also growing quite fond of the "Red with black accents" look

I bought our LJ last year for my son. I bought it because it only had 15,000 miles on it, it looked brand new, and I got a great deal on it. It has lots of chrome on it. Wheels, bumpers, and grille. I am not the biggest fan of a lot chrome on a Jeep, but I was not going to start replacing parts untill he can prove he can have the vehicle without knocking parts off of it (so far, so good) The Jeep is Patriot blue, and I have to say that the combination of the chrome with that color has grown on me, and it has turned into a case of this is our Jeep and this is how it looks, and it works. Some people here really get bent when your Jeep does not look like theirs. The comment that really cracks me up is "chrome won't get you home" as if black powdercoating on a bumper will somehow save you on a trail over chrome. To each his own, even if it is pink fender flares.
