Too much chrome!?!?!

funny conversation I was having with my wife earlier.... about the Limited Commander... went a little something like this:
Babe: hon, I really like your new truck. it is sooo nice.
ME: I know lady, it really is a beaut, I got really lucky.
Babe: yeah, but there's just so much chrome...
ME: what?!?! its a limited, I suppose we could just wrap it(sarcastic), yeah I'll just order a mossy oak wrap and slap it on this weekend.

anyone of you guys with limiteds or sports with chrome had anything like this happen. I had planned when I switch out the tires, that I would probably plasti-dip the wheels(not crazy about the 6 point rims). but I am kind of fond of the chrome trim, it reminds me of my first jeep-'91 grand Cherokee Lerado. ahh, such good times. it was inferno red with the chrome bumpers, grill, and door strips and roof rack.

..:Snow man:..

Funny....that was strict criteria when searching for my Limited. I wanted limited chrome. Seems everyone that came on the used market around here had chrome fender flair bolts (hate 'em), running boards & rear grab handles. All that chrome to me makes it look like an NBA star or rapper's vehicle. It took me almost a year to find one the running gear I wanted with just chrome wheels, grill & side molding.

I like my limited chrome though sometimes I wish I had the chrome clad wheels. I'll gladly trade anyone who doesn't want their chrome OEM wheels lol.

pictures of what you have. I have the 6 point 17" chrome factory.... I'm not too particular on what I want really, but that classic 5 point star in aluminum alloy would sure hit the spot. HAHA

Yep, that's what I have. I always liked how the chrome ones look on a white Commander too.

I love chrome. It's not common anymore so it stands out for me. The only chrome I wish I didn't have is the fake bolts on the flares.

My 2008 Sport had virtually no chrome when I bought it.

That's not really the case anymore as I've added some here and there.

I wasn't a big fan of chrome at first, but, the more I added, the more I liked it.

I love the chrome on the XK. It's perfectly done, imho... I have the chrome with the 5point alloys and I think it looks great. My body shop buddy keeps asking me if I'm ready to paint all the chrome white and paint the wheels black. My response is always the same. Why would I want the same Jeep / vehicle as everyone else? EVERYONE is going with black wheels. No thanks.
