Hey guys, just wanted to post this and show what I'm doing as well as to solicit some ideas from others. The Surf Blue, while not bad, doesn't give that pop that I get with orange. Especially on a Granite Crystal paint job. First, I removed the Rubicon lettering and the matte and blue 4xe hood vinyl, and lastly the blue outlined Wrangler Unlimited. I'd really like to find a Trail Rated badge that has orange where ours is blue. The Gladiator Mojave would be perfect but it says Desert Rated. I probably could use the Mojave Jeep logo though because I think it sits in an orange trim. Now I need to find orange tow hooks. I will probably just pull the bumper off to get to them so I can sand and paint them. If it comes down to it I can always Plasti-dip the badge and Jeep text black like I did on my last Jeep. I'll probably Plasti-dip my keyholes and antenna, too.

Thoughts?

Here's your black/orange trail rated badge.

Have you considered popping the 'e' off of your tailgate, painting it orange, and slapping it into the 'e' shaped crevasse on the charge port?

They also sell orange charge port trim pieces (it comes as two separate pieces, so you can play with just using the border piece or doing the whole thing).

That’s really cool.

I’ve got a thing for black and yellow (see avatar), but can definitely appreciate black and orange.

Here it is. They're called Distinction Applied and do all sorts of custom painting for interior and exterior trim.
Have you used them or know someone who has? They also do grille trim in factory colors. I was just curious of how close the paint matches.

That looks great. Love the idea of the orange for the charge port e...
Ideas:
-grill, either the trim or the actual grid pieces...fender vents can be matched. one of our original ideas was doing just the grid and adding phosphorescent so it looked like the engine glowed
-foglight surrounds or push bumpers or towhooks
-dash maybe in Granite w/electric pinstripe, like in your hood decal...steering wheel and bezel
-rear taillight cage
-radio dial covers

I got some dash panels for Distinction Applied, I was not impressed. For the money, just get a local painter.


UPDATE: Got an email and then a call from the owner (Brian) after I responded with the details of what I felt was wrong with my dash panels. I will just say I was blown away that he would take the time to make a personal call, describe the business and their customer service approach, and how he could make it right. Honestly, the fix was above and beyond and I'm just more thrilled with engagement. Brian takes the quality of his work very seriously and customer service is tops in their business model. Color me impressed (no pun intended).

I have not, so don't know their quality. I just recently found them.

That sucks to hear but thanks for the feedback.
