Black TJs

I couldn't find this in a search of the forum.

I recently got a black Sahara with black, color-matched flares. I'd like to see what folks have done with all black TJs to break up the all black look. Oh, and I'm not really interested in chrome.

Thanks...

The ongoing fad is to not break up the black. Black rims on the black everything, so you look like every other black piece of black, and its easier to fix scratches with a can of black paint Try something new, like personalizing your Jeep.

That's my plan. Just wondering how others had gone about it. So far I'm planning either fender or flare replacement. I have some decals on order and I'm gonna get a different color for the shock boots when it gets lifted.

The nice thing is that the fenders/flares come in black primer or powdercoat. So no painting to match is necessary. I personally think the black on black has gotten way too played out.

Maybe this would be a good time to discuss the pros and cons/opinions.
The reason I don't like the blacked out look, the first thing I see are the black rims. From growing up in the '80's, black rims meant you were broke and went and salvaged four spares out of the jy.
What is it you see that makes you like the look?

Maybe my original post was not clear. I want to break up the all black look. I don't care for it. I don't like chrome, so that's out. What are others doing to get away from the all black look?

I bought a khaki soft top instead of black.

My apologies. You did say that.

Getting it dirty helps too. Turns the black wheels into a nice brown color.

I've added some aluminum stuff. Left it bare aluminum. Savvy gas tank skid, PS hood louver. Aluminum corners are next.

A friend of mine has a custom cage and home made tube doors painted red. Breaks up the all black on his TJ.

I kept a pattern of bolt heads to pick up on the bead locks.
