I took them off cause I like the all black look better on the bumpers. wonder if anyone else has tried painting them body color.
I would bet that somebody out there has tried it. There aren't many "original" mods that haven't been attempted by some Jeeper or another.
However, the bumper appliques are pretty flimsy...seems to me that if you painted them, the slightest impact, bend or crease would crack the paint.
Your best bet might be to wait till that model comes out and the appliques start showing up on CL, the classifieds here, etc. It's almost certain that someone will spend the extra $$ on an Altitude version, and hate the red appliques.
At that point, you make your move...
