Thanks all for the comments. I had a local body shop do the rear brow for me, so I can't speak to the diffculty of masking off the Jeep lettering. Painting parts/cars is not one of my strong suits, so I left it to the pros.

A new mod I did tackle last weekend was wrapping the wood trim with 3M Scotchprint CF. I don't dislike the wood trim in the Overland, but after seeing the writeup with pictures from 'SixZeroFour' I decided I like this better with my black interior. Many, many thanks to 604 for taking the time to create the roadmap for those who venture down this path. His outstanding DIY thread here:

DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

Not too difficult once you get into it, but it does take time. I now see some areas where I could have done a better job, and may go back and replace at some point now that I got the hang of it.

Once the trim was wrapped, I'm staring at a wood wheel that looks very out of place. Bit the bullet and replaced with the SRT wheel. Must say the wheel not only looks great, but feels great too... changes the driving experience. Now that I have the pedals, shifter, CF trim, and wheel, I'm sure some will say my interior is an SRT wanna be. Can't argue. I like the look and feel of all the interior mods on my Overland.

'SixZeroFour' to the rescue once again with a thread on replacing the steering wheel. I decided to have my body shop guy do this for me, but the info in the thread is excellent for those who choose to do it themselves:

SRT8 Steering Wheel Installed

Pictures attached truly don't do the trim justice. It really does look much better in person. Also included a shot of the 5.7L Hemi badge I put on the rear. Like the symmetry, but some days I wonder if I should take all the badges off the back. Next mod on deck is the Black Ops front bumper lip, and then I might be done. We'll see.

Re: Overland Before and After Pics

I'm so jealous of your interior dslide.

Did you put in different tweeters?

Haha... thanks jgc. That's how I felt about 604's interior, so I did it too.

Yes, I did a sound system upgrade a while back. Thread with info is here:

Re: Overland Before and After Pics

Very nice work dslide - the interior came out great! AND the world has been free'd of one more set of woodgrain - win/win.

Just yesterday I was having my windows re-tinted and while waiting took another look at the SRT in the showroom. To this day I still prefer the texture and look of the wrap better than the real deal which is very glossy looking. I must admit I would love a set of those seats... but otherwise the interior now looks almost identicle.

Looking great!

Re: Overland Before and After Pics

Looks really good mate, I did the interior of my 300c with the same stuff. Loving the steering wheel as well, I don't fancy my chances of getting one over here, might keep an eye on US eBay for one.

Re: Overland Before and After Pics

Slide - the interior is one of the reasons that I've liked my Laredo X with the black wood. Yours certainly looks good. Nice work.

Since you're almost out of mods, are you thinking about a 2014?

Thanks all for the comments!

Otis: The fact that I'm almost out of mods means I'm close to having my Jeep exactly the way I want it! I think the 2014 has some nice upgrades but I love my ride and don't have plans to replace it anytime soon.

Re: Overland Before and After Pics

Looks awesome!!! I've been trying to figure out to add the chrome trim to the bottom of the Laredo trim. I'm wondering if mopar just has replacement chrome pieces to sell. instead of buying a whole new trim piece. but i'm not sure if the contour of the trim would be the same. I like the way it breaks up all the black. I could go for Trailhawk styled trim pieces too.

Re: Overland Before and After Pics

Ride looks great wish I had almost bought my GC in Black. Not sure if someone mentioned but Motorsport has a pick of your truck on their gallery page.

Re: Overland Before and After Pics

Your Jeep is a case-study of design balance. Its pretty much what I envision for mine (minus the 20s). Did you paint the chrome mesh on the altitude grill or is there a black insert for it? Thanks for all the informative posts!

Thanks guys.

* Bought the black door handles from one of the online mopar sites. If I did it all over again I'd probably just buy from Just for Jeeps.

* Thanks for the link to Motorsport Tech. I have been so pleased with the BORA spacers that I told Lenny I'm happy to have him display my picture on his site for others to see who may be considering this setup.

* I pulled the black shell off of the Altitude grill and switched it with my stock chrome shell. Already had the Ablaze grill mesh installed behind it. Ablaze is a vendor here and is listed in the vendor section with pictures and a link. There are a couple threads on here about pulling just the chrome piece off the grill and leaving the stock mesh if you want. It's really easy. About to paint my own grill and rear brow--Need Help!!
