Renegade headlights

1st post long time lurker on my 2nd jeep. Just got a KK and would like to get that Renegade headlight look. What are my options to go about doing this? Think I'm a little to chicken to put my headlight in an oven just yet.

Sorry if this has been posted many times, but I just downloaded this app and am still learning the in and outs.
Thanks

Your choices are pretty much Bake it or burn some cash at the parts counter of your local Jeep dealer. You could check salvage yards, but doubt you will have much luck with that route.

Welcome to the forum.
What is this "baking" you speak of?

There is a great DIY write up on how to do the Renegade black out headlight bezels over on LOSTJEEPS. It shows you how to remove them pull them apart, spray the bezel and reassemble. I believe it is during the pulling the headlight apart that you bake (or heat in your oven) to heat the adhesive holding the headlight housing together so that it can be pulled apart.
I will PM you a link to take a look.
