Re: Silver Front Plate

Looks pretty good 'Radside'. Congratulations. I was looking for this piece under www.mopar.com but couldn't find it. What is the part #?

However, does anybody know if one can order the original Jeep piece through the parts department and if so, how much does it cost?

Re: Silver Front Plate

Thanks for the comps. Unfortunately the mopar site does not have part numbers and I didn't keep the paper work. I do know that the part is available for ordering through the parts dept but the part numbler doesn't match the part number on the fascia. By the way, it is chrome plated plastic not metal. It's going to set you back about $180.

Re: Silver Front Plate

@Radside: when you say that "the part is available for ordering through the parts dept..." is that the the part you have that you are saying doesn't fit 100%?

Yes. I went in to the dealer and they pulled it up in their system. They brought out the part that was suppose to fit but the part in the system was different than the part that they had in stock. The part that they had in stock was the same part that was shipped to me. I believe that the part carried in stock is for a 2010 model or there are different parts for the Laredo/Limite/Overland that the parts system does not show yet...though it sort of fits the 2011 as you can see from the pictures I attached. He also brought out what he thought was suppose to be the lower valence fpr tje 2011 GC and it was different than the one one my GC...with difference being there were slots for clips vice holes for the push pins. I didn't think that it would be fixed anytime soon, so I modded the part to fit...it was pretty easy and it looks pretty good to me.

Re: Silver Front Plate

I am getting my Laredo within the next 3 weeks (cross fingers) and I would really much like to add the silver lower front fascia (like in the image at the beginning of this thread).

Does anyone have an update on that? I mean the solution described by '@Radside' cannot be the final word. Can I get this piece at the dealer so that is actually fits without drilling holes?

Re: Silver Front Plate

Went to the dealers parts dptm today to see whether I can order the chrome front plate. They say that they can not even order this piece as an accessory and therefore there were also not even able to give me a price

I cannot believe that. What if a Limited or Overland has an accident? They might be able to replace this piece...

Any idea what one can do?

Re: Silver Front Plate

I would try another dealer. It's still available on the website (see attached screenshots) though as I posted a few weeks ago, there is a difference in the part # and what fits without modification. My belief is that that the part they sold me was for a 2010 vice a 2011. You can always return it if it is the wrong parts. The 2010 has clips while the 2011 should have holes for the plastic rivets.

Re: Silver Front Plate

I asked about this when I bought my Laredo and they said it was about $179 but that it wouldn't be an exact fit. Currently they do not have a exact match as a accessory for the 2011. Likely it will be but probably not until next year sometime. Most of the body parts, interior trim etc are still not available to purchase outside of buying the whole vehicle.

Re: Silver Front Plate

Yep, it was $179 and not an exact fit. The width is perfect from side to side but dept from from to back was a little short but not a big deal unless you are on your knees looking underneath. Trimming the clips and drilling a few holes is also required to make it fit. All in all, I'm happy with it as a $179 mod.

Re: Silver Front Plate

I am still not giving up

The piece that you purchased (the one that doesn't fit 100%) can someone tell me what part # this is? Because it seems like there are 2 part #'s depending on the sales code and probably one of them fits? It is either 68078286AA or 68078287AA.

Thank you!
