I have a winter chill Arctic and ever since the 10A, I have wanted to copy the same look with orange opposed to red. I had the took the Rubi font for the hood decal and outlined ARCTIC in orange. Now, just trying to find the right shade of orange and the time to get it done.
Is there a trick to removing the rear tow hook? My initial thought (have not actually got under and inspected it yet) is there is just a couple of bolts to remove and replace--is it that simple?

I plasti dipped my front and rear tow hooks this weekend. I used plastidip because I wasn't sure how I'd like the look, plus the stock bumpers only have ~6 months left on my Jeep before they are replaced. The fact that the plastidip may get ruined is fine by me.
I went the route of removing my bumpers to paint the hooks. I had the time plus i used this opportunity to familiarize myself with the assembly of the front and rear bumpers.
I am really starting to love the red accents. Thinking of incorporating it more and more with my already existing black.billet theme.

I removed the bumpers and used xo farm implement red back in march. I liked the way it looked against the black grill on the sand trooper II mopar Moab concept vehicle. Easy weekend project, but I don't see a problem with taping off either.

I trimmed lots o things on my jeep because it made me feel like it was something no one else has and that is the beauty of Jeeps U can build and customize them like no other vehicle!

I love the idea! Once I saw the 10A. I bought hood decals for the arctic with orange outline with the idea of painting tow hooks orange.
Is it best to remove bumper or leave on and paint with bumper covered.

I like it!
Are you going to do the rear hook as well?
Maybe I'll hit mine up with some plasti-dip. I almost wish the 10A's didn't come with red tow hooks because that is the color I would go with.

I don't have any tow hooks to paint... I feel so left out, but my D rings show a ton of wear from use on the trails and not from hitting a few grocery carts that got in my way...

Thanks guys for all of the responses. I get to learn something on this job. (Taking off the bumper.)

So yes, I painted mine body color because it looks cool. But if anyone paints theirs red I think that will look great because the 10A already proved it...
