I am looking for upgrades in hardware for my pride and joy. I am looking at a hood dress-up kit and possibly door and windshield frame hinges. Anyone have problems changing their hinges? also i have heard of stainless steel rusting or turning bad after awhile any jeepers experience this? is there any benefit of black stainless over chromed stainless besides price?

taking the hinges off is easy as taking the bolt's out of them.. the problem is the bolts dont always like to come out nicely. make sure you have the correct size torx bit for the bolts and a good quality one at that. most common problem ppl have is stripping the torx's bolts be carfull.

as for the stainless brakets....yes stainless will hold up better than normal chrome plating. but you still will be polishing alot to keep them shiny//and to prevent them from rusting.

as for the black stainless compared to the ''chrome'' stainless there is no differance.

alot of ppl will probally tell you not to put chrome on your jeep. BUT it is your jeep do what you like.

one more option is powdercoated hinges or just getting the hinges you have powdercoated.

with powdercoated hinges you dont have any maintnace such as polishing and such and the will most likely last longer than any of the paint on your jeep.
