Opinons please ! :)

Hey jeeps! I have a 2dr silver JK with a chrome sports bar, i was thinking of selling it and getting a nice rock bumper matt black and paint rims matt black till i get big *** tyres and make the car silver and black....
Or should i leave the chrome and have chrome rims and and make the car silver & chrome detailed.
Also it would be good if i could see ohotos of nice jeeeps woth chrome bumpers cheers

Ditch that chrome, its hideious. Chrome is for semi's and motorcycles.

gl with whatever you choose, id suggest a none tube bumper, they dont do much but for looks, and there not that good looking.

If you could remove the tubes and run it as just a stubby it might look ok! Definitely no Chrome allowed though

I LOVE chrome! On my motorcycle! That just does not belong on a Jeep. Sand/grind the chrome off and refinish them in black.

I am not fussy on the bars, but you could paint them black as well.

Please don't call your JK a car... lol

Lets see pics of the results after you've upgraded or made up your mind!
