    The chrome on my console blinds me when the sun is just right. Is there an easy way to make it not shiny?

    Fair warning, I purchased the kit, it's amazing and I have no regrets. But I still get blinded by the shifter face plate. I thought it was the cup holder trim that was blinding me but it's the shiny shifter plate that has the P, R, N, D on it.

    I went with AJT to delete the shine on the console. Installation was simple.

    I just ordered some vent rings too.

    AJT Designs vent rings installed yesterday. They look good and do their job.

    I put a piece of matte black vinyl on mine. Pulled the silver bezel off and did it in the truck.

    My stock chrome vent rings sweat with A/C on constantly. Do the AJT rings solve this? It's probably better regardless...because the chrome rings show the water so much and I don't think black would.

    Sweating wasn't a problem with mine. It was just the glare that was getting me.

    I suspect there would still be condensation forming on the rings and dripping behind the covers.
