    Alright well the lift is on just waiting on picking out wheels so I can get my tires. But I am thinking of doing away with all the chrome. Anyone know if I can peel/sand the chrome pieces(grill, power mirrors, handles, bumpers,etc) and paint them the same white? This way all black rims wont look so wierd. If not i guess go chrome?or half and half?
    Any ideas? Or photoshoppers?

    I took all the chrome off mine. The grill can be sanded and then painted. But it will require a little effort with wet dry 300 or 400 sandpaper. I just bought a new one off Flea bay that was not chrome and left it black.

    The Badges come off if you like that look to get rid of chrome. Thats what I did just removed badges.

    I hate chrome

    I just though it would look bad with all the chrome and black rims. Im thinking maybe just some aluminum rims, or possibly a decent chrome set..more likely aluminum tho.
