I have the stainless hinges on a Silver Jeep. I think it looks great. I love the look of metal, without paint. Folks will bust you balls for using stainless and chrome "bling"; but it's all about corrosion aversion for me. In my book, paint is definitely more girly than a metal finish. I will post a pic for you in a little while.

I would think on a silver jeep the bare stainless would blend in better. I went with the smoked chrome (only tailgate so far) on my black jeep and think they look good

Look for the "smoke" or black chrome then they would look sharp.

I am not a fan of Chrome. a Chrome finish eventually fails and rusts, especially on a hinge. Go Stainless.

I will try to use a photo bucket link.

Thanks for posting the Pics RnEMOVR. The Mirrors are of a much cheaper quality and I would not get them. You can see that the screws were not even stainless and have rusted.
