Trying to decide if I want to plasti-black my grille or not. What do you guys think? Should I pull the trigger and do it?

Definitely do it! It changes the look of the Jeep dramatically. I Plasti-Dipped mine shortly after bringing it home. I'd post a pic, but I'm at work right now, and can't access Photobucket from these computers.

Go for it. If you don't like it then just peel it off.
Was unsure about doing this with a relatively new 2012 last year.
Found a 2011 scratched grill on Craig's List with the top seal and amber lenses intact for $75 [the sellers's mall crawler had to be perfect and it WAS a chrome grill]. Bought it and Dip'ed it. Out ~$85 but now have two complete grills and the contrast has grown on me. Am going to remove the Dip and bedline when vac comes around this summer.
Still have people asking me about my 'other' Jeep when I sometimes swap out the original front. Believe JK '07-->'12 and maybe newer models sub out.
the image is old...many mods since

I can't decide between the gloss or the bed line so I got both. If I don't like the gloss gonna just coat it with bed liner. Pics to follow

Awesome mod. Protects the paint from chips and insect guts, and looks bada$$.

I got some smitty fenders that i think im gonna bedline so im definately leaning towards just bed lining my grille too. :doh: Help protect it against chips too like you mentioned. Thanks for your input man. :thumb:
