Really haven't shared my ride on this board, not that there is much to show off seeing as its all stock but that will be changing soon.

Constantly back and forth on painting the SAP grille black or leaving it silver I just can't decide.

I would paint them.. But that's just me. To each his own, right?

Looks good. I'd paint them Yellow to match the car. I love how mine look color matched.

If they are originals, I would leave them exactly as they are, if they are reproductions, I like black on YJ.

If we're all giving opinions, mine is: anything but the silver. I just don't think it looks good against the silver.
Here's mine with them painted black:

And here's an FB friend's painted body color:

^Every time I look at his car I think about getting mine matched to the body color. If I didn't have the SAP extension I probably would.
Now all of your options are right there. It's your car...your decision. Keep 'em silver if that's what make you happiest. If I cared what others thought I wouldn't have drilled more holes into my trunk lid for the SAP spoiler.

That yellow really pops out! Just need to fill in those annoying front license plate holes! I wish mine was that clean. Really nice.

I vote for painting them black. Looks good against the yellow.

Thanks everyone, they are originals from factory but I think I am going to paint them black but may try plasti dip first as mentioned above to get an general idea. But thanks for the comments everyone.

thehazz12 - I love your car man btw, saw your recent shoot over on ls1gto.com
