Looks awesome! How did you get the letters off? And what did you use to reattach them?

Thanks! To get the letters off I used fishing line to cut through the glue between the letters and the car, and then used glue I bought from AutoZone to reattach them.

They did it for free, I negotiated that into my deal. I'll take close ups and post them later. I'm not sure exactly how they painted them, but it's not PlastiDip

As I have done with my previous Jeep's interior (pictured below), I will also do some paint mods on my Trailhawk. As in, I will redo/paint the exterior badges and I'll recce the interior for other paint mods. More to follow....

@TBEORNH Nice interior, would love to see more.
@darko4 You took off the letters to dip them?? I just rubbed the overspray off with my fingers after 7 coats and just taped off a smaller box. Was pretty quick.

Looks good though!

Looks good Darko. I'm in the process of doing mine as well. I'm sure this is a dumb quesiton, but how do you take the grille off? I've searched some other threads but haven't found much. Thanks!

I think you just remove the nuts from inside the hood. each "grill" insert has them.
