change console cover/color?

hey... did search but couldn't find a thread on this.

i'm puzzled why jeep made the center console cover (at least the one i saw) a kind of light brown / cream color that doesn't really go with a black interior for example. pic of this below.

has anyone changed the color somehow, or is there a replacement part to do this out there? just not a big fan of this color.

Re: change console cover/color?

I don’t have an issue with the colour, it hasn’t bugged us. Like anything, what people like will vary.
See this thread from someone that didn’t like it as well and fixed the issue - Dash vinyl wrapped

Me either... the champagne isn't bothering me at all.

Try vinyl wrap or paint them if you have some guts.

Good luck

Re: change console cover/color?

For me personally...

I think the champagne color trim looks better than the run of the mill satin silver that you find in just about every vehicle out here today. I have always hated the cheap look of it.

The carbon fiber vinyl wrap some people have gone to looks really good.

In any case... even if I didn't like the factory trim I wouldn't waste the time or money trying to change it.

Re: change console cover/color?

I agree with some of the others that like the Champagne color. We picked the color over the silver cause we felt it had a higher end look overall than the silver color. The silver looked a little overdone and cheap in comparison IMO. Obviously certainly do whatever you like and if I were going to try changing it I would probably look into the vinyl wrap as well.

Re: change console cover/color?

nice to know many here like the champagne but not seeing how anyone can think it goes with a black interior. i don't care for silver either, by the way.

given how high end a summit interior is otherwise (leather on dash, nice material on headliner, pillars, etc.) it seems like it would have been nice to have something a bit more premium on that console/door trim.

although having said that i'm also baffled as to why until '15 there had only been 'nearly black' (v dark brown) and black interior choices for the summit! i guess the designers don't live in the south!!!! for '15 there's the new 'argentina' which is tan brown AND black... have only seen one pic of it, so not sure yet...

getting closer to pulling the trigger anyway, thanks for feedback.

I guess I don't have to look at it with the black interior, we have the light frost, and it works well.
