JK-Junky You have to be carful with the hinges, most of them are covers that tape on with 3M

SidSpider The first two things I'd like to do is replace my tailgate hinges, they are rusted and ugly, so I thought I'd get some aftermarket ones. Then I'd like to get some side steps or nerf bars. After that we'll see where it takes me!

What parts are you looking for exactly? Like, wheels, bumpers, etc?

Very high maintenance. The jeep is an off road vehicle and you would be spending good money to destroy the finish if you were to take it off road.
If your jeep is a street queen like my Yj was-- do what you want its your jeep.
Unless your jeeps yellow Of coarse

Wish I had a pic after I installed the double
tube chrome bumper hoop in the front lol

andygio71 Don't forget about stainless parts too; they can look similar and (from what I've heard) are more durable
12-08-2011 09:25 PM
cavsvet74 Have you thought of having a local plating company chrome plate your existing parts? Or possibly, buy used parts and have them plated. It may be a cheaper option. If the plating company is any good, you may even get a more durable product.

I'm just thinking out loud here.

JDsDream It's not that chrome is a "sensitive subject" here, it is just that chrome is not a good choice for a vehicle that will be spending time off road. People are going to have their opinions and sometimes it would be better if they kept them to themselves, but alas that is not human nature. If you like chrome and want to have your entire Jeep chrome plated, that is entirely up to you. The great thing about these vehicles is that you can customize it any way you want. Every Jeep is as individual as you want it to be.

As for your question, there may be some here that can point you in the right direction but they are few and far between. Again, due to the issues that you have already raised in your initial post, chrome is not a popular modification on Wranglers.

SidSpider I'm up for strong opinions, I'd rather hear them before I've spent my money then after! However I've had the same issues with black powder coated parts. I had installed some black tube side steps on a Cherokee I used to have, and they were rusted within a year, I don't remember what brand they were. So I'll gladly accept any input on black parts as well.

Best brands for chrome parts?

I'm looking to add some chrome parts to my Wrangler. I've had mixed results when buying chrome for other vehicles in the past, some look great when they're new, and a year or so later they're pitted and ugly. I thought I'd get some opinions and see what brands you guys recommend.
