Should I paint my front D rings?

I left them orange, I think I like them. What do you guys think? Should I paint them black or something?

I painted mine silver to match my XK. I think black would look better than orange on yours.

That's the best looking XK I've seen to date, keep them orange...I think they should stay that color.

That's one cool looking rig

Keep them orange! Love the way they stand out!

Also Queston:

I noticed some of you guys swing to the right, and some swing to the left. Is there any significance to the way you tie off your winch?

You could dip them in that stuff you rubberize tools with. Comes in a few colors. I did that once, matched it to my white rubicon. I think, I like the orange though. Here's a couple pics.

I disagree. I do not think that you should paint your Commander Orange to match your "D" rings.

Good looking rig, Iowa Commander. You and all the guys that serve should be given one on returning home. Just my opinion.
