Smile Urgent: '15 Summit Painted Hitch Cover Needed

Greetings, everyone!

I recently got my beloved 2015 Grand Cherokee Summit (white; non-California edition) bumper rear-ended which resulted in major paint damages on its removable trailer hitch cover (bezel) in granite crystal.

I contacted my dealership and was told that replacement parts are only available unpainted. Due to time constraints and budget limits, I would really loathe having to make the body shop color match my bumper. I have also not been able to find a compatible part on eBay.

I speculate that almost all '15 ('14/'16) Summits have the same color hitch cover parts, so if any of you happens to have a spare one laying around, please considering messaging me. I would also greatly appreciate any insight/advice!

Thanks for your time!

Welcome harryk. I do not think that the body shop would have to color match. They should be able to get the correct mix formula for current model vehicles from their paint maker or FCA.

You could call some salvage yards to see if they have a granite crystal bezel from a Summit. It would probably have to come from a damaged bumper as they usually won't break up a good bumper. It's a long shot but worth a few phone calls. You may get lucky.

Re: Urgent: '15 Summit Painted Hitch Cover Needed

If I read correctly, you were rear-ended.

Where I come from, thats pert-near always the other drivers fault...and thus their bill.

Make sure its done right. Dont ask for more. Dont accept anything less.

If the hitch-cover is toast, odds are the bumper cover is similarly damaged and thus color matching should be less complicated.

If I were in my shoes, Id take it to the dealer, pick up a rental, send the bills to the other guys insurance company and tell them:
"Call me when it's right."

Now....if you managed to get yourself rear-ended by an uninsured utility pole stricken with decades of impudent road rage then you may have a wee bit more difficulty collecting from "the other guy". I would gladly offer you mine because I want to switch to an SRT bumper cover. But mine is whatever color Jeep is calling "black(ish)" and you would be faced with the same color-matching quandary.
