'15 Limited Trim Updated

Finally have my '15 Limited looking like I want, after a year. It took a while because my buddy painted the pieces for me and he is busy.

I could've, and maybe should've bought an Overland, but I didn't. I really enjoyed the process of modding my Limited, and would've found things to change on an Overland. But I will probably buy an Overland when I replace my current GC.

My first mod was tinting the front windows, then replacing the vertical grill inserts that come on the Limited with the black mesh inserts. I then added the chrome tow hooks. Later I replaced the black antenna with the white one. Next I replaced the chrome door handles with white ones. Then finally, I replaced the front and rear lower fascias, fender well trim, rocker panels, mirror covers, and roof rails.

Here are some not so great pics, but you get the idea nonetheless.

Re: '15 Limited Trim Updated

Looks good. Did you pick up new paintable trim? Or and down the old textured trim? Where did you source the trim, if all new.

Thanks - yes, I purchased new paintable trim. I bought the rockers and fender well trim from a dealer online (for an Overland). I found the needed part numbers and searched until I found the best prices. There are many dealers that sell parts online at discounted rates. I couldn't find a smooth, paintable rear lower fascia with the single exhaust outlet for my '15 Limited V6. I can't remember why I did it exactly, but I ended up buying the rear and front lower fascias aftermarket from one of the large online parts houses. They had several quality options and I chose the best ones. My buddy sanded them smooth along with the roof rails, which were textured. I bought the cheapest replacement aftermarket mirrors I could find online just to get the mirror caps, which were smooth and ready to paint.

I can search for the dealers and other vendors used if you need me to. I've got receipts somewhere.

Thanks! I agree. I'm resisting, but will eventually give in.
