Chrome on my jeep

I've been driving my jeep around for a year now with chrome bumpers and chrome hood hinges the PO put on. What is the best way to blacken these out? Plastidip, bedliner? Also, has anyone painted their rims black and what kind of paint did you use? I want to go more permanent than plastidip.

Thanks for your input! Pictures are always awesome too

powdercoating might be worth looking into otherwise any spray bedliner should do the trick. Only chrome i had was headlight bezels but i just used a can of "flat black industrial" paint and took care of it

just make sure you scuff the surface if you do rattlecan it - Good Luck!!

Powdercoating is nice, but VERY hard to touchup if you chip it. Black is not so bad as a color though.

I would use Rustoleum Bedliner. I did on my wheels, bumpers, flares, rock sliders, and swing-away. Pics are here...

I like the looks of the bedliner, thanks! About how much time did it take you to cover all those parts?
