Maybe I missed something, but the area where the leather is, seemed to have it's connections points to the door panel melted together and not screwed together. To replace that would be very difficult as a replacement part. So to me, it wouldn't make sense to sell the belt trim with the leather.

I was informed by someone that knew about it on this forum, that the leather door trim is plastic welded to the wood trim piece. I think it's the upper leather near the window that comes attached to the wood piece.

The wood trim piece comes out by itself. The small chrome strip below the wood portion, is welded to the wood piece. I just had it all apart this last weekend.

OK, then you're right that it doesn't make sense that you can't buy just the wood trim applique. Maybe I'm incorrect about that too. That would make the switch easy too.

Re: Installing real wood dash.. Removing faux wood

I know of at least 5 junkyards that have wk2 overlands. Do some work and you can buy whatever parts you want for a faction of the retail price. Call lkq, they have a few of them.
