I have an unlimited and it came with the chrome grill thingy and I think that it adds a little character. Everything else on it is black, so I like the contrast.

"Shine is fine but Chrome won't get you home" on the back a a massive CJ-5

"Shine may not be fine, but it will get you laid" On the gas tank of a Harley

Thus depending which you drive make your own pick.

Well, Edelbrock doesn't make black 10" air cleaner.

Maybe I can get mine powder coated.


Oh yeah, my cigarette lighter is also chrome. I'll have to look for a black one next trip to the junkyard!

I would say do what you like. I don't like chrome, but if it works for you, go for it.

You are all just a bunch of followers going along with the latest trend. Next year the fad will be to put big tires on weak axles.


Personally, I chose a mix of the two.

I don't really care for it as it can rust, but all I have chrome are the light bezels and my Harley Davidson mirror so I'm okay with it.

Nope, bolt was about 1/8" too short.
