Wheel arch trim modifications

I love my '14 Summit, but one of the things I dislike are the wheel arches. I really like the look of the black trim around the arches on the Limited. Sadly, it doesn't appear like an easy fix to transform my Summit into a Limited in this respect. Especially the fact that the front bumper is also different, which the wheel arch trim runs down and blends into. Has anyone done any modifications to their Summit in this fashion? Any help would be appreciated.

Tony

Here's some pics for comparison:

Very Easy. Most of that trim you have is with 3m double sided tape.
The problem is the part needed to complete the change.$$$$$$$

Re: Wheel arch trim modifications

Wow, I never did like the cheap looking black plastic wheel opening mouldings that my 2012 Overland had on it. Just gave it the look of a Laredo. Not something the luxury oriented Overland should of had on it. When I saw that the 2014 Summit would come with the much more integrated looking body color mouldings, that plus other features that the Summit includes, that convinced me to order a Summit.

Re: Wheel arch trim modifications

I have a Summit inbound and also don't care much for the wheel flares or the wheels. I will be painting the raised arches with black plasti-dip and getting some off-road wheels.

I've got a plethora of various photoshopped pictures of my Summit with different wheels, black wheel arches, etc. I do it so much that it cuts into my homework time.

Care to post some of those pics? I'd love to see.

All subjective I guess, but I don't feel the black plastic trim looks "cheap". I think it gives the Jeep a rugged appearance compared to the luxury models.

Re: Wheel arch trim modifications

Here's my favorite. Blacked out arches with 20" Boss 304 wheels and 275/55 tires.

Re: Wheel arch trim modifications

It looks like half the width of the arches are painted in that photo. Do you think it would look silly to paint the entire arch width?
