After sitting on the fence last winter trying to decide on a 850 or stay with the 1200 I have found a 2016 TnT for a great price with 1000 miles on it but it has a bit much sunburst on the nose for my liking..

I was wondering if anyone has some pics with a black skid plate or has done any panel swaps to change it up some.

If I add the cost of a bunch of panels it doesn't look like such a great deal anymore and I will keep looking.

Pic for reference..

Why not just look at a wrap to change the colours

Looks great as is! Get some plastic paint/dye, and spray the grill black.

Too much yellow for me also.

X3 on wrapping it, or even just wrap some of it.

It does not have to be a racer style you could do solid black.

^ what he said.
The nose piece around bumper would be much easier to wrap than swap out.
And I found doing the side panels, you're almost better off buying top & bottom rather than trying to disassemble the current one and swap just the bottom pieces out.
Plus it's nice to have the entire stock sides available to swap back should you or potential buyer want the OEM look back.
My .02 after doing it myself on my 2016 Renegade X.
But I will also say this, do it! You'll be happy you did rather than drive a sled you don't love the color of!

I suppose that would likely do it ... really like to see one with a black skid plate and how much it covers.

maybe a bit of vinyl with it would make me happy...

Got back into it eh Bark. You"ll like the 16. I opted for a 850 Renegade this year. Pray for snow now. :smile_old: Got a 17" high windshield with a mirror for that 16 for those cold Quebec days if your interested.

Awesome... working out some details for the purchase..  I was really struggling to go 850 or not and will be real interested to hear your take on it after you get some miles on.

I like the way it looks now but a painted black grill and black skid plate would look good too.

You know I was just thinking looking at it again that you're not too far off from making it look just like a Blizzard :)
....if you like the the way those look ;)
