I know low profile on a G is ironic but I'm considering taking the bling out for aesthetic and unwanted attention purposes.

My thoughts are a tint strip all around, drop the running boards, de-chrome or color match (black) the front grill and rear tire cover. If I move to a full set of Atik's, I'll lose the tire cover and go with a center lock box.

Any thoughts to take it further or pictures of a similar set up out there?

The grill's "chrome" is sticky tape. Patience and a heat gun will easily remove it.

Attached are photos of my Atik spare and the center lock box.

When I first got my G I did something similar, it was almost all black. All of the chrome strips in the trim pieces can be peeled off, but the adhesive is strong and may leave some ugly stuff behind. What I did was pulled the grille off and sprayed it with plasti-dip - (everything but the star).

Good luck & post pics when complete!

A little isopropyl alcohol or mineral spirits will remove the residue. Been there and done that.
