Take a look here:



What I have in mind is wood piece above front passenger glove compartment and another piece on the door, same for the left side. Does it explain it?
Yep exactly!!
Your in NY I'm in Boston I could get them off depending how much time it takes it could get pricy.

I would go to the dealer and check on the availability of replacement pieces and send them to me then Ebay the others when you take them off or I just may take them off your hands when you get the finished ones back from me for whatever you paid the dealer.

Re: Making fake wood trim less shiny

I believe if you click on the Laredo images on this page, this is the fake wood.

Those pieces could easily be covered in vinyl and probably wouldn't even need to be removed if you find someone with good skills.

I agree, I have the Laredo X with black interior. I'll have to take a closer look at mine later but I never saw it to be a "fake wood" look. It doesn't really look like wood grain to me, almost like a swirl pattern with a light reflective fleck to it. Hard to explain but I really like it. More of a tech like look maybe a cross between CF and woodgrain.

Re: Making fake wood trim less shiny

The fake wood in the laredo looks better than the fake wood in the limited.

Re: Making fake wood trim less shiny

The trim on the limited is not real wood. However, when I visually compare the Limited and Overland I do not see a big difference. To me, the Overland wood trim is so highly finished that it does not look real. The wood trim on the steering wheel and leather wrapped dash are the most noticeable differences on the Overland.

I wish the Overland included a wood shifter knob.

Re: Making fake wood trim less shiny

I'm pretty sure the limited is also real wood, just different kinds of wood. Can't remember where I saw that. The laredo/LaredoX has the composite. I looked at mine closer on the way home and I guess it does kinda have a wood grain look to it but with the Black interior it's done in black and charcoal so it doesn't look like it's coming off as cheap fake wood.
