Dave, reach out to Al, KaiserJeeps. His build thread for Sadie has lots of pieces he had a shop re-chrome for him and they look like they came out fantastic

http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=121305

I imagine you could get their name and contact information from him.

Good Luck!

I see you got my message and link Dave. Be sure to read reviews. And folks, one of the suggestions I had for Dave was prismatic powder coatings. The grill on Sadie was powder coated and I think it looks good. Dave wants chrome and that is a great choice for strength and the rough environment of being a wheel. But powder coating might work for other things. Always an option.
Here is who did all of Sadies chroming.

Post up Dave when you get them done!!

For wheels I'd look for/find a local wheel repair shop, they're usually everywhere and wheels are different animals than bumpers or trim.
