mgp Caliper covers

New member here.. Just bought a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Altitude. I want to put some caliper covers on and my problem is MGP has covers for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and Summit and the Person at MGP said that these should work on mine..I have the 20' wheels.Does anyone know if a 2014 brake caliper is the same as the 2015..I checked a 2015 Limited and they are the same..I would like to know before I order..Thanks for reading.

Just paint your calipers.. easy at pie with the self leveling paint. Just a little more work and also won't cause damage to your brand new jeep like covers will but hey to each their own.

Re: mgp Caliper coveers

I had a custom detail shop do it and used dupli-color caliper paint. Make sure you clean the calipers with brake parts cleaner first.. My jeep had only 500 miles on it so there wasn't much grime and brake dust on them. Good luck..
