digger i thought so too, but i actually like the chrome mirrors cause i'm not completely blacked out... i got the chrome molding and chrome in my rims. i was really against the mirrors for a while but then i saw them on another black jeep and i fell for em... i do infact refuse to do the door handles i think that looks dumb... or chrome pillars... yuk!... lol on full frontal shots tho the mirrors look pretty classy

I hate them when looking at the side, but on the frontal shot, they don't look half bad......

But I actually like the look of all the chrome

Not a fan of chrome or low profile tires, but still a clean looking liberty.

the chrome is ok. Its sure shines nice. I am not a fan of those big wheels and low profile tires. How can you ever go off road with those? :? Did he say he wanted to lower it? :shock: I hope I misunderstood that :shock:

lol... yeah you heard me right... it's getting lowered... haha ... bring on the " THE JEEP GODS WILL PUNISH YOU"'s haha.... although its not the traditional style of a jeep. it is a style, and to each his own... i know what your thinking its meant to go off-roading. but here on Long island there isnt too much of that, and i really dont live that lifestyle, i do although, admire it. i am very greatly for viewing all your mods and they help me with some of mine. Hey who can honestly say they dropped a jeep 2 inches before ( without just taking the suspension completely out) haha... i kno i will be able to. and hey on the bright side.... even thought it will be lowered ( and i'm not saying dumped to the ground just lowered) i'll still be a 4x4... so unlike all those other lowered trucks n cars i'll be able to pull my self out of pot holes :lol: ... truthfully i like the look of my 20 inch rims.. and i really like the idea of lowering my truck.. but honestly if i could afford to go with a crazy 12 inch lift and 33's on a black offroad rim... i probably would have, but as for money... right now i can't afford that. my warranty would be out the window and so would about 10 g's haha. If the future.. hey its possible.. but for now i like my jeep... all of its chrome, the 20 inch wheels, low profile tires, soon to be lowered suspension, and even all the other fancy stuff i've done to make it a show car. again to each his own...

besides that thanks for all of the comments on my detailing... alot of effort went into it... n yes its very shiny...

Hey let him do what he wants, he likes his ride his own way, more power to him.

That said every time I see huge chrome rims and tires with like 1" sidewalls on durango's or whatever SUV, u name it, I just cringe. I'm not a big fan of bling on any car. I like all one color or 2 with black accents. Just me though.

And I agree, those mirrors look pretty good from the front, and from the side that picture they looked white / weird. I'm sure they look better fromt he side IRL.

Back on topic: BEAUTIFUL WAX JOB!

okay well i used a few things i started with claybar, then i used turtle wax black box, then klasse gloss, then i shined her up real nice with a microfiber towel haha...

i do agree that big rims look dumb, but i'm gunna be honest 20's arent so bad... i could have went with 22's but then there's no sidewall and i think that looks so dumb... honestly the nitro comes with up to a 20" rim... obv i'm not going off-roading anytime soon on 20's ( even though it has crossed my mind more then once) haha. i wish you could all go on to car domain and see how many of them have 22's... some kid on there is talkign about raising his jeep for the purpose of fitting 24's ... see thats makes me nauseous. i could have went with a bit of a bigger sidewall but i didnt want any rubbing issues.

if my jeep could serve the purpose of offroading and offroading only it'd be lifted no doubt in my mind... but it's my daily driver and MPG has to be on my mind as i commute back and forth to school... now i can do that in style getting 23 mpg or put in a lift some 33's all the extra weight of the skids and custom bumpers and get around 10 mpg... haha i can't afford it
