Installed a drawtite hitch. Then took the jeep wheeling on my 12000 lbs lowboy behind my 1973 Chevy K20 so as not to get dirty. (JK)

the stock bezzells are chrome deposition over plastic.
sand paper, 100-150 is fine. then primed with rustoleum primer, then two, wet but thin coats of black satin finish rustoleum.
I cant post pictures here but the jeep is dark green with all black, so its seems only right to blacken the bezzells.
