LucidTJ I have also been looking at doing all my hinges black. I was looking at the Kentrol set but i think i can find a better place to drop $160. I think im gonna take my current hinges, spray them with a self etching primer and give them a coat of black myself, then possibly clear coat them. might work on that this weekend, If i do, ill post pics.

Peepers I have the kentrol black door and tail gate hinges:
Kentrol Jeep Doors - Quadratec

The still look good after 3 years. they do seem thinner than the stock hinges, and I spent about 4 hours re-aligning my doors after installing them, but it could have just been me.

I also have the windshield hinges too:

Jhart83 An option you guys have if you aren't sure or dont want the change to be permanent is using something like the rugged ridge hinge covers. I put them on my black jeep just because I liked the look, but I am sure they might even give you a look similar to what you want. They fit all door and hood hinges on my JK. I would imagine they have something close for the TJ models? Just a thought for you fellow Jeepers!

They look a little grey in this light but they are def a textured black finish.

ellman605 I have a white jeep. Curious about this as well.

Mahoo I run all powder coated black hinges against a custom color called Caddilac Kevlar. In my opinion it looks awesome against the dark grey but they should really stand out if on a silver Jeep. I stripped out about half of the torx heads that held the hinges on so I replaced them with black powder coated header bolts.

robby1207 I have the black kentrol hinges just havent put them on yet, probably going to be a bitch to put on because the stock ones have painted bolts

akawonderchild I've done the tailgate hinges and plan on doing all hinges in a semi gloss black. Goodluck with the torques on the tail gate hinges; I stripped mine out and had to replace them with allen head bots. It looks really good, and it would really accent a silver Jeep well. If it weren't dark, I'd go take a picture now. If I remember tomorrow I will.
