Re: Making fake wood trim less shiny

Re: Making fake wood trim less shiny

You will get used to the wood in it. I thought that I was too shiny too but now I don't.

The Limited does not have real wood. It's the same as the Laredo, except different color. If you compare the Limited trim to the Laredo, they even have the same wood grain design; the only difference is in color. Chrysler refers to the Limited and Laredo's wood trim as "appliques" in their literature. (btw, they also say "bright" instead of "chrome" when it's chrome painted plastic instead of chromed metal). They make a point of always prefixing the Overland's wood trim with the word "real" and like to note that it's Standard on the Overland.

Re: Making fake wood trim less shiny

The trim is almost certainly plastic in the limited though, i own one with just about every option. The trim is wood color and has a chrome strip, unlike the laredo, that has a more subtle black wood-grain trim with no chrome, and is not as thick or wide so to speak. The overland, from what I can gather, has real wood and a leather trimmed dash.

Re: Making fake wood trim less shiny

i was shocked to hear it is real as well. jeep has been known to go the cheap route on little details from time to time.Always great trucks overall, but sometimes small things that really dont matter get overlooked i guess.... i know a guy who has a overland commander with, get this, plastic clad rims. unreal. but true. he dropped 45 on that thing and he got plastic rims. another thing im glad jeep did was put solid rims on this overland. thank you jeep for real wood and real rims......

One more sign that American automakers are starting to get it right!
