I want to do all the trim argent to match the wheels. But for the grill, should i paint it argent also? or should i have it match the vehicle color green and get the grille insert (look on page 5 near the bottom) and paint that to match the wheels?

For sure, get rid of the chrome. Argent coloring would look killer. Great idea

Screw chrome. The two tone look would be awesome. I think I would like the grill the wheel color

If a SFA could make a KJ Liberty cool, it would make this thing SO badass.

A roof rack would be cool, but i made this in metal shop so i figured maybe ill use it when i get lights.


I still have to cut the holes to fit lights and get it powdercoated tho.

Don't know if it's been done on a WK before, but I heard that Saguaro was planning on coming up with a solid axle swap kit with Dana (60's?) and possibly a 6" lift in the future. Man I love the way these look lifted, I'd love even more to see the swap and a 6" lift

I looked at that grill insert you linked. Personally, I would have to see the honeycomb style you're talking about to give you a better opinion. All I saw was the cactus looking one, which is ok if I lived out west (or were from there).

But to visualize, I think what I would do is paint the grill to match the body and do the insert in argent, like the wheels. I would do that, or paint the grill argent and the insert black to match the 4xGuard brush guard.

To be honest, I don't think the chrome really looks all that bad but if you are going to change it, that's what I would do. It's your Jeep in the end.

FWIW, I think you've done a hell of a job on that WK. I have to agree with the others on how they look lifted.
