I painted them with the tires off. They won't scratch any easier than if they were powdercoated or if they had a factory paint job. Plus, now I have the touch up paint in my garage.

The cool thing about black is maintenance and refurbishment. After bumps and bruises, your chrome looks bumped and bruised, rusted and flaked... but you can sand, prime and repaint anything black and it is back to new.

I go both ways...Thats what WE WISH she said. But my jeep is all Tan and Black but my motorcycle can't have enough chrome. For I live by a motorcycle theory that goes a little like this : Chrome won't get you home. But shiny gets you hiny.

I personally do not like black wheels. I have the chrome headlight rings and original rims. the rest is black. Too much chrome is not a good thing on Jeeps.

I prefer black and am slowly replacing and painting everything that is silver. I painted my shocks and shovel (so rust wont drip on my top) hammer tone copper and really like the way it offsets the black.

I like ALL black. I'm painting the "chrome" headlight surrounds black. I removed all the stickers too.

not chrome but i went all stainless steel, probably a little to much but i still like it. The stainless is the best of both worlds, you get the shinny look along with the durability to go off-roading and not scratch the stuff up

Most cases - I agree! I at least like the SS / shiny look.

My tan jeep has some black and some silver. The hood catches are rusted to crap, the wheels are alum. with old plastic coating partially peeled off. My black jeep has black stuff, but I hate the black plastic crap, fading being one reason.

And paint doesn't
If a jeep can move under it's own power, no matter what it looks like, I get goosebumps just watching it!!!

Hell, I saw one out wheelin the other day without a freakin hood. That thing really got my blood pumping.

I really don't care what your jeep, house or front yard looks like, just mine!

don't want a lot of chrome to polish. but, i'm not a fan of black wheels.(but i don't go where wheels would get scratched up alot-and if they do, oh well!). i won't be adding any chrome accessories, they'll be black or red. but my wheels will probably stay aluminum colored. just my preference.

Apparently, the new chrome on the JK's doesn't chip ... I asked a dealer about it because there was one that I was interested in but had the chrome grille and I told them I didn't want it cause of chipping and they said it won't chip ... something to do with the chrome is the piece, not added on top of something else ... I still like black.

Satin black on everything. I like my jeep invisible at night and visible when I want it to be.
