Good stuff glad I could help!

Re: Brilliant Black Door Handles Are Here

Well I have 3 handles installed, taking a break before number 4. Handles fit and work perfectly but I will say install is more indepth than I expected. After removing door panel you also have to remove inner panel and window (for front) and hold window up out of way on rear. I have the drivers side door left and will try and take pics of process. I think the hardest part was putting the door panel back on lol...the panel clips float a little bit so lining them all up was a pain. Needless to say I need to replace a few haha. Sorry for crappy pics it was late when I finished up last night. First door took me about 2 hrs but that was because process was new and had to figure things out, especially window removel. Now I can do a door in about 45 mins. If you have big hands portions of the process may be difficult...have your girlffiend standing by to help lol. Anyway, off to do last door more to follow....

I think the price for the handles alone is not that bad, I was quote $225-300 per handle plus labor from my dealership and it would have been a total of $1400+.

I would definately grab them for what you paid but it seems the labor is a bit much with having to remove the window and all.

Thanks for your post on this.

Jesus that is a lot. When I was looking up prices for bright white handles there is no way the LIST price for all 4 totaled more than $450.

It is unfortunate that dealerships are quoting such crazy prices...justforjeeps will hook you up for a great price! As for labor...I am by no means a great mechanic so if I can do it anyone can. The first one is time consuming but once you get the steps down you'll roll through the others, just turn on some music and put in work lol. Until I get the steps posted I will definitely assist anyone however I can even via text if needed.

Exactly...no more than $400 for all 4 and that is still a high qoute! A dealership would definitely get someone on install though...I could see them dragging each door out to ridiculous amounts of time.

Re: Brilliant Black Door Handles Are Here

Oh and mirror covers and grill rings are at paint. Painting them with PXR paint code to match body. Should be done and installed wednesday! Then time to decide on some interior clean up...small suttle updates!

I envy you man! I wish I had your guts to tackle things like this. One other thing the dealership told me was if I get the handles else where they would install but not warranty it :/ I am assuming you yanked your whole front bumper out to get to the chrome inserts, how about your rear bumper do you the chrome ascent?

thanks bro I honestly am surprised I tried it lol. As for the chrome rings they actually just pop out...no bumper or grill removal required just a panel tool. I had the chrome on the rear bumper vinyl wrapped in matte black along with window trim.
