no more chrome

When I got my Jeep a few months ago, it had a chrome grill cover on it. I'm not a big fan of chrome, so I removed it. Once I got it off, I didn't really like the look of the stock headlight bezels with the black grill so I got some black headlight bezels as well. Once I was done with it, I was able to just stand back and let out a deep sigh. Ahh... that looks better...

I'm slowly working on the process of Chome-be-gone. But it's rather expensive when your bumpers and side steps are chrome.

I did the same thing last weekend, headlights, wiper posts, and i did the antenna as well just to make it not "stick" out.
