OK, I have my flame suit on, haha... Calipers

I bought some caliper covers from MGP and just finished installing them on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland.

I'm not sure if I like them or not. I'm going to leave them on for a while and see if they grow on me.

Flame away!

Yeah, at a distance that's the only reason I still have them on. I'm not too keen on the fake bolts.

They make them in all colors. They are a bit pricey for what you get.

*Note, these are technically made for 2011 to 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokees. I had to slightly bend the brackets to make them fit right on the 2014, but got them on nice and tight.

Re: OK, I have my flame suit on, haha... Calipers

Now ya gotta spring for some really spidery wheels so they show thru better.
I'd personally prefer a bright red cover, but that would be like telling you what girlfriend to choose.

They aren't bad, but up close those (like you said) those fake bolts look awful.

Re: OK, I have my flame suit on, haha... Calipers

I'd take those without the fake bolts. I hate the stock unpainted calipers, they are just going to start looking rusty over time. I will eventually paint my calipers to keep the "clean" look but these seem like a reasonable alternative.

Too bad there are probably some sort of trademark issues in nobody offering fake Brembo covers.
