Looking to swap out my chrome mirrors for black ones .

I was wondering if someone knows the exact part # for black mirror covers for my 2014 grand cherokee summit . I looked on mopar's web site but could only find chrome replacement covers . Is there anyway I could get them in black . I was thinking of getting them plasti dipped or something more permanent but nothing matches the metallic black on my summit . I appreciate any opinions . Thanks .

You can't buy just the body color caps, you would have to purchase the entire mirror at like 500 if I recall correctly. Just pull the chrome caps off, there are directions on here, and have them painted body color. Quite painless actually. Good luck. I hate the OC as well. ...... overdose of chrome

Add glossifier to the plastidip and it'll be a little closer to your factory paint.

Plastidip on right W/ glossifier on left.

Re: Looking to swap out my chrome mirrors for black ones .

The mirror caps are fairly easy to remove you could always set aside a weekend and paint them with some touch up paint.

1. Scuff with 500 grit paper.
2. clean surface and prep for adhesion promoter
3. Spray with a nice primer
4. check surface for any imperfections that need to be smoothed.
5. Move onto color coat.
6. I would recommend a catalyzed clearcoat like the 2k line that eastwood sells.

I guess you would have to wait for summer for a project like this if it is still winter where you are.

I thought of that option also . My paint guy tells me that painting over Crome will end with chipping but he mentioned the sand paper pre paint method . I'll run it by him .

If you prep the chrome right you will not have an issue.


My grille shell was chrome I painted over it. My mirror caps were chrome I painted over them.

My rear brow was chrome and I painted over that.


I have a friend that works at a body shop, he has painted several parts for me.

He tells me what to do for prep and he does the painting, If I do the prep I get the part painted faster and he charges less.

It is the same deal with plastic parts.

If you don't prep them properly the paint will either peel or chip off.

If you prep the caps like I am suggesting you will have a solid paint job for years to come.

The key is the clear coat you use. Don't use any of the rattle can crap unless it is 2K or catalyzed otherwise it will turn yellow in a year or the gloss will disappear after a few months in the sun.
