    I had an idea of swapping out the outer door handles for “chrome” ones (Black 2020 ORP). I thought the chrome might look good since the vehicle is black but not sure just yet. Has anyone tried this and if so, did it look good or did it look ghetto? Thanks.

    I have chrome and I’m trying to get body colored or black. Chrome is usually for limited models.

    Hi all! I have the chrome handles on my 2021 limited and like DaytonaViolet I’ve been wanting to either color match blizzard Pearl or go with black. After alot of consideration (And YouTube videos), I came to the conclusion the only way to color match would be to vinyl wrap. I ordered a 1ftx1ft piece of vinyl from a vinyl company you give the color code to and they make it for you, $15 bucks! I also ordered a roll of black vinyl to practice with. After 3 tries I got it down (edges were the hard part). Here is a pick of the first one completed. Looks amazing!

    I removed the chrome handles and installed black ones... I'm not a big fan of chrome... But to answer your question, it is doable. Just have to be comfortable taking apart the door...

    This is exactly what I did. Night shade handles on my 2016. Just had to swap internals.
