I put vinyl on mine. It was leass than $200 for the front, rear, side and window moldings.
I think Harrison did the same thing.
He cut out the rear sensors and put the vinyl back over them individually.
You cannot tell the difference.
The only time it beeps or has a problem if it has been raing and a lot of road dirt has covered them.

hell id charge less than that for that amount or work. i have all the vinyl here in my garage for other cars but they dont make anything remotely close to SBM. i was thinking gloss black to match my dark tails. havent decided 100% though.

whatd you do for the side moldings while youre mentioning it? did you use a stiff tape to cover the "grand cherokee" or fill it in first?

I'm getting ready to paint mine. Hopefully it doesn't mess up the sensors. My local guy wants $50 and lunch. Lol... Same guy who charged me $65 for my 4 door moldings and stillen covers.

Not overly difficult to paint chrome......I have had bumpers, wheels, grilles, trim, etc.. that were all initially chrome, painted without issues.

I took my back bumper off and removed everything when i got the back strip color matched. I covered my sensors individually with vinyl as well. Looks great, just like the paint does.
I also get the beeps when it rains or gets dirty like ttyndall, but only from the right side. Left side is flawless all the time. Whenever i get some free time, i'm going to remove the back bumper and redo the 2 right ones.
Def recommend this and it is very easy to return to stock if you ever should want/need to. Not to mention the satisfaction of doing it yourself!

one can of trim paint, satin black, $6 bucks. Masking tape. 1.99. Hour of my time. $350.00

Sensors work fine, I touch it up once a year if there are any nicks.
