Well if you are ok with going with a black grill (or yellow) you could try getting the chrome overlay off...if it does come off clean you can keep the yellow...if it doesnt you can paint the overlay black and put it back on.

Ideally I'd like to go back to yellow, I'm a minimalist when it comes to the body of a jeep. I'll give it a third try this weekend and see what happens!

The black grill doesn't look bad but I'm not sure if it's my cup of tea.. I'm going to try and get the chrome off and save the yellow. But the stance in your keep is nice man

Full width axles. You can try, but can't duplicate the look. Check out my Jeep profile for pics.

By the way your tires are bubbled out there, id say you had 8" rims for sure. Check out the pics on mine, it has 33x12.50's on a 15x10. Looks much meaner. Some of the veterans will try to tell you that you cant air down a 10" a whole lot, but I, and many others have done it without losing a bead. Its just personal preference.

I agree, nothing looks meaner than full width axles. A rig like that and you know you mean business!

Op being.. Original poster? If so please elaborate, I'm still learning terms. Bubbling out isn't good I'm guessing

Bubbling out is exactly what you want. Not only does it protect the rim, but it gets a better grip on the tire beads so as to hold better at a lower air presure when compared to a 10" rim.

Yes and no. Too narrow of a rim turns the usable part of the tire and wraps it around to the sidewalls. Plus on the road, you tend to wear out tires like an over inflated tire...
