New 2017 Cherokee Owner from SC!

Never have owned a Jeep until now. I traded my 2012 Focus in for a brand new Cherokee and it's the best thing i've ever done! Found this site while trying to see how I could change the grille out in it from chrome to black. Hopefully someone can give me some advice. I am a female and pretty car savvy.

Congrats on the new Cherokee and welcome to JCC.

You can plastidip the chrome (plenty of 'how to's here) or you can buy the black version of the grill surrounds from a dealer or on ebay, etc. Or if you want, you could also paint them.

I've blacked out all of my chrome with plasti dip. That includes window trim, emblems, grill, roof rails, and also my wheels. It was temporary at first because I didn't think it would hold up, it was also my first time using it. But after tons of washes and all kinds of weather, it still looks great. What's nice is that if you do decide you don't like it, you could always just peel it off.
