I'm not sure I understand the Chrome hate. I've seen Chris Rock's CB4, and while that jeep looks ridiculous, that's no reason to hate all chrome on all Jeeps.
Here is Chrome done wrong:
But here it is done right:
I mean, sure, the second one is mine so I'm completely biased but so is, well, everyone else. I thought the number 1 rule of the Jeep community is that there's no insulting anyone else's rig. Which is why I will never do that. Unless you drive this:
Then there's no helping you.

|interceptor_1972||This is one of those personal preference things like color. Me, personally, I like moderated chrome on certain vehicles and bikes, but when it comes to Jeeps, I won't put any chrome on it. I'd be partial to Black when it comes to wheels, bumpers, etc.|

chrome 1 vote
I'm old school from the days when all cars had chrome, so any chrome I can put on my TJ I will. CHROME 1 vote.
It is all just opinion.. at the end of the day don't forget to wave.

I started a similar thread a couple of weeks ago just because I'm looking to ADD any color BUT black to my black Jeep. I like a little contrasting colors.

|jimkellam||The jeep I wanted/bought came with the chrome package. I wasn't too worried about it because I knew I was going to replace much of it anyway. The chrome looks better on black jeeps, and mine does look good in chrome. That being said, it will be replaced with all black soon, not because I am a chrome-a-phobe, but having only a couple things chromed doesn't look right when you start to replace parts.|

|Unit 313||Chrome. It's a timeless thing. I personally like it and think it should be tried before being shot down. It makes a vehicle unique and different.|

|Spud100||Mostly one or the other. I have black everything, except wheels (aluminum, not chrome) and planned that way. All black is too predictable. Cut back against the grain with one feature or another. I like black jeeps with black wheels, everything black but keep the chrome headlight bezels.|

Chrome, in moderation, and tastefully done. Chrome and aluminum rims look awesome. All black rims look drab. Even the black rims, with chrome accents look awesome. Like I said, Chrome looks awesome, if its tastefully done. All black, IMO, makes the Jeep look dead. It looks like a funeral Jeep.
Too much Chrome, send that boy home. Too much black, send it back.
Too much of anything is bad.
I got a black fuel door with chrome rivets, and chrome gas filler housing.
Now, I'm looking for a chrome gas cap, to sit inside my chrome housing.
You see black, and then you open it, to see the chrome inside. It's artistic, and tastefully done.
I have chrome bumpers and side steps, with black turn signal and side marker guards.
I'm unique and an artist. I've never been one to go along with a trend or any crowd.
I like to stand out, but in subtlety and class.
But, I don't like those all chrome Harley's or Hummers either. Too much chrome makes me blind. Too much black makes me ill.
This Jeep is awesome. It's a work of art. Just the right amount of chrome on a black Jeep. It gives the black, character. It looks totally badarse. All black? Nah.

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...
|05-18-2012 04:04 PM|
...and 10 years after that, Black will again be all the rage!

|SurfKaster||10 years from now all black will be comparable to sawblade rims & double windshield wipers. Everything runs its coarse|

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
