Yeah, seems to be a popular trend but one I am not super fond of it myself.... but each person has their own eye for what looks good for them.I think Jeeps that are blacked out are an ugly trend on WF. That being said the build was top notch.
I didn't really 'black out' much of anything on mine. I ended up with alot of black parts but I decide against taking off the chrome front and just left it since it was part of the Rubicon Sahara package.
