Carbon Fiber

Hello everybody,

I'm planning on getting a GC in the next year or so. So here's my question, is there a company that make carbon fiber exterior parts for non-SRT GCs?

Re: Carbon Fiber

I'm looking for a grill, and a lip kit. I'm not really interested in a hood though.

Hi guys, user Ajag posted about this awhile back... Trufiber Carbon Mirror Covers and Rear Step

Direct link to website: 2011-2015 Cherokee "WK" Archives

Although the link says 'cherokee', it's for the GC.

Please post pics if you buy anything.

I lot of people have had issues with Trufiber. I'd think twice before buying from them.

Re: Carbon Fiber

Was thinking more of a replacement cap, rather than stuck on to the existing cover. That looks pretty bad. Blackops had some prototypes made up and they looked awesome, but never saw anything else. I wish they'd produce them. It seems as big as the WK2 platform is and how well they sell, there's very limited aftermarket for them.

For what it is, I thought the cap looked pretty good and the fit was better than I expected. Not quite enough for me to pull the trigger but I liked them.

I think the lack of aftermarket parts is probably due to the fact that 99% of the JGCs sold are mall crawlers. There's been some vendors coming up with performance parts (cai, exhaust, lifts, etc) but very little cosmetic and the stuff I've seen (at least as far as CF) has been really expensive.
