Which trim levels for the Cherokee and Comanche had chrome door handles? I’ve seen the chome handles before, but they seem really rare.

Yeah, pretty sure it was a Laredo/Wagoneer trim package with all the chrome. 

But after the body refresh in 1997, only black handles were offered on the XJ.

What’s weird is the salvage yard I frequent has several XJs with the chrome handles and they are still on the doors. Which reminds me I should see if they have metal ones.

The chrome handles are metal.  They're the only handles you can actually get off the doors without snapping the studs.

I mean the black handle variant in metal.

That is completely dependent on where the vehicle lived.   Here in AZ, the nuts come off the studs on ALL the XJ handles no sweat.   I would guess up in your area, the rust on the studs makes it problematic.

Not even rust.  Just a slight inkling of corrosion and they snap.  It's a dissimilar metal thing I think.
