In moderation...yeah, why not? My headlight rings are the only chrome on mine, just enough.

If the owner likes it! It's not what we like, it's what you like! I personally only have chrome headlight trim but I built it to what I like.

Everyone needs a little "bling"

Nothing wrong with a little but not too much

who cares? if he waves I'm gonna wave back. Jeep is a jeep and a nice jeeper is still the same guy, poor aesthetics taste or not. (although if I see a huge rimmed lifted pimp mobile jeep I might flip them off. so i might be a hypocrite in that respect but it has to be extreme lol)

To each his own, I guess. Personally I don't care for it. I even have black headlight bezels.

I love shiny things and I'm vain. So the more chrome, the better.

That depends on the owner and what they are comfortable with. Bought my white '03 Rubicon used and it had front and rear chrome tube bumpers.
The chrome has not kept me from going through the mud, sand, brush, etc. I don't hesitate to push over small trees and brush when checking my property . The chrome doesn't keep my jeep from being a jeep.

That being said, I am thinking about a 2013 Rubicon Anniversary edition but don't plan on putting chrome tube bumpers on it.
Might have chrome wheels though.

If the owner likes chrome on his/her Jeep then YES, it belongs there.

If you told me chrome does not belong on my Jeep, I would tell you to pound sand.

My headlight bezels are still chrome.
The exposed rods coming out of my shocks look like chrome.
I have chrome-molly axle shafts.

Whatever. Who cares?

My grill is chrome too, but it came that way and it's a really cheap way to make it look interesting. Haha.

Do baby seals stop in the middle of the road or something from the reflective shine?

My wheel center caps are headlight bezels are chrome...that's it for me.
