Grab Handle Chrome Removal

I've rummaged through a handful of threads on how to install the grab handles, but I was unable to find out if its possible to remove only the chrome piece, separate from the black plastic.

My aim is to paint it, and I'd prefer to have it off the car instead of trying to mask it. Thanks

The short answer is no, this is as close as you can get;



This is a pic from my garage when I installed my Chrome grab handles and got rid of that black sport garbage trim; if you want to see the blow by blow pictures;

He didn't ask if the handles are removable Tom.

He asked if the individual Chrome piece can be removed by itself - and it absolutely can not, it's permanently adhered to the piece of black plastic that I pictured.

I have done this job myself already.

That is the most it can be broken down to.

Next time, get your facts straight before you contradict anybody.

Ok, I made a mistake. But you don't have to be so ugly about it.

I've tried being civil with you about this sort thing before, it doesn't seem to get through to you.

Thanks for the tips. Got the door trim done, now onto the back!

I like the shape and inset lettering of the limited chrome, instead of the raised lettering of the standard. Looks good bedlined.
And in case anyone was curious, this is what the liftgate handle looks like without the jeep badge
