I am considering plastidipping mine in my new truck because it is very annoying and sunglasses have no affect on it. Just a heads up to people to make you feel a little more confident in removing and painting it or what ever else, you can buy a new one online for about $50. I saw one on eBay for $30 so I'm sure $50 is the high price number on the mopar parts sites.

Going to do mine real soon as well as I am to the point where I also feel like chucking it out the window lol.

Anyone know if just the sticker can be purchased for that piece or does one need to buy a whole kit?

Going to check out E-Bay, but hoping I can find something local or at least CDN first.

I know it has been mentioned on here before, but if you haven't read it then I have the answer for you.

Plasti-Dip!

I am a complete noob when it comes to mods and such on vehicles, so I was a little apprehensive to do this, but even I managed to do it without having the truck blow up.

I used my credit card to slide around the trims underside and gently applied some pressure to it as I went. I could actually see and feel the trim lifting off within second of starting.

I then went to Home Hardware and picked up a can of black plasti-dip for $19.99 and went home and started.

I didn't even do a trial run on anything first, as loads of members here swear by the stuff, so I figured how bad could it be.

I had done two coats (I think it was two??) when my brothers dog (who was visiting) went out into the garage and put a nice little paw print on it.

My own fault I guess for leaving it on the floor.

Anyway I let it dry all the way and just peeled it right of. Easy as pie!

A few days later when the dog was gone and I had time, I started the project again and it came out just fine.

Perhaps not as good as the guys born with a spray can in their hands, but good enough to not blind me when driving down the road, and nobody has said it looks like shite!

I will post a picture tomorrow to show you what it looks like.
