Question Chrome vs Stainless Steel

I have a 91 yj that I would like to dress up a bit. I was surprized when I went to Ebay that there wasn't as many chrome items (hinges, doorhandles, hood latches) as there were SS. The SS stuff was cheaper too. I know that the chrome will shine more but I guess I'm looking for other peoples opoin on this subject. Also if you know of any good websites, that would be a help. Thanks

The problem with Chrome is that if it gets dinged or scratched the plating will start to come off and the underlying steel will start to rust. With Stainless Steel there is no plating so its not a problem. JC Whitney has chrome and SS accessories as does Quadratech. I definitely choose SS over chrome...

Chrome is absolutely useless. At least stainless steel will not rust, and that is the selling point. It is cheaper, yet looks better, for a longer period of time. Welcome to the pavement princess category.............
