Real wood trim replacements?

Anyone know if there is a vendor that makes real wood trim replacements for our newer jeeps? I have a 2014 JGC Limited.

The plastic wood imitation pieces is the only thing on this vehicle's interior that make it look cheap in my opinion.

Through dealer or online oem vendor but plan to pay $175-$300 per piece times seven.

Re: Real wood trim replacements?

You can find the piece at the dealer or online but if you want them don't waste time waiting.

I priced out a set 8 months ago and they ran about $1,500 then I looked into it again last month and the price had gone up another $225 and that is for a 11-13 that has been out for a while.

MOPAR seems to keep adjusting their parts prices upwards.

Which site? I ordered a few pieces through an online vendor and it was 30% better than what my dealer could do. Received the pieces within 5days.

Re: Real wood trim replacements?

Since the real wood trims are most likely real wood veneer, has anybody tried DIY, with pressure sensitive veneers?

Looks interesting. I looked at the veneer with the 3M stick backing but I doubt it would hold up in the Florida heat. Anyone know of custom outfit that does this sort of thing for auto trims? I'm not a fan of the stick on kits.

Re: Real wood trim replacements?

Here's a few:
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Wood Grain Dash Kits | Carbon Fiber
JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Interior Dash Trim Kits, Auto Accessories - WoodDash.com
B&I Product Search Engine

Looks like they all end up with the same manufacturer.
