I would like to paint my grille/headlight bezels red to match the body, but since I have black bumpers and trim, how would it look? Did Jeep make a package with a color matched grille and black trim? A pic of my Jeep is below.

Yes, Jeep did make color-matched grille and trim for the '97 model year, except it was for models higher than the sport.

Even though this picture is a '98 model year (completely identical to the '97), this will show you what it looks like. This is a Classic model, therefore it also has the color-matched front and rear bumpers, fender flares and license plate trim.

My XJ has the solid green front end look as well.


Personally I like the look of yours with the black. I would personally keep it that way because it gives it some syle and think it would look funny to have just a black bumper.

Of course thats just my opinion. If I could talk the wife into letting me paint her's black I would, but I know that isn't going to happen anytime soon.
