I prefer black; but, I saw a Surf blue jk with a good deal of chrome that looked awesome. All it was used for was carrying surfboards and such though. Chrome, as long as it is done well, can look great. I would rather have a chromed out mall crawlen' Jeep than drive a vast majority of other cars.
Besides, it's the inside that counts...

...and 10 years after that, Black will again be all the rage!

However, Chrome DOES look good on a classic '58 Impala...

|SpoiledRotten||Good post, blkrub. I'm thinking the "follow the leader" has a lot to do with some thinking black is the only way to go. Many don't want to be their own guy/girl but would rather just be accepted and "fit in with the crowd". Well, whatever the reason, to each their own. I like looking at Jeeps, no matter how you fix them for your own taste. Ok, some might make me want to throw up just a little if they look like pimpmobiles.|

|sawyert||My jeep is all stock right now except for the wheels and tires obviously. Everything i add to it is going to be black and i'll be painting the grill and part of the hood black like i have seen others do. But the rims have both the black and "machined finish" as Dick Cepek puts it. I kind of like it. I think i might go with black rims with silver beadlocks though and get rid of these. Not sure yet. Figured the black rims might look better since everything i will be adding the jeep is going to be black. But we'll see.|

Chrome on jeeps is alright, but not that great and has to be on nice parts not pepboy's parts. A little of each looks good and depends on color
On a pickup chrome bumpers are nice, I don't like the painted bumpers on pickups

A little of both.

|Z0827||For me it is polished wheels, everything else should be black or body color.|

I have one of those Black Jeeps with a taste of chrome and SS. For example, I have chrome nerf bars on each side, chrome wheels and SS off road lights. I believe that is it but it looks good to me and very obviously to many others since I get compliments ALL the time from people either walking by or by someone that will go out of their way to comment on how much they like it.
You can get too much chrome on a Jeep just like you can get too much black on one. Too much chrome does make one look like a pimp mobile but then too much black makes one look like a vehicle that is owned by one that can't afford nice parts to put on it. Hey, you asked for opinions and you just got mine. I'll put mine up beside anyone that has all black.
BTW... I HATE chrome tube bumpers on one.
This one is before I painted the dash black with red center piece.

I like black because every time I tear something off or ding it I can just whip out a rattle can and "fix" it. well...except for my hard top

I don't like chrome at all........AND, after 8 years, I'm really, really tired of black too
The jeep is black, the top is black, the wheels are black, the tires are black, the bumpers and rocker armor used to be black......blackblackblackblackblackblack
I'm so freakin' tired of BLACK!

|SCBeachKop||To Dragonii......What type top is that on your Jeep......I like it..!!|

I prefer black myself.....

|nissanman1||You can't put enough Chrome on a Jeep. I do say it depends on the color. Light jeeps need black and dark need Chrome. Red looks better with black and a black jeep needs all the chome you can buy.|
|03-01-2012 10:26 AM|
I like them.
...and I stick by my original vote. BLACK!
|02-19-2012 11:40 AM|
I am dechroming - going to body color (Desert Sand Pearlcoat) on headlamp rings and wheels - black on wheel hubs and lug nuts. I have black hard and soft tops. I like my Jeep to look like the great machine it is !
