parking brake handel

is there any replacement or up grade to make the handel leather. I have an 05 limited and have installed all the overland trim, leather arm rest cover, etc...

just looking to make it look better, any thoughts?

Re: parking brake handel

thats helpful. as thats exactly what i was talking about. in 2008+ untuil the end....2010 they made a nicer handle.

here it is bloom; also > how was your visit to Colorado last week. You were in the hood at some school where they hear gunshots most very night. how did it feel walking down the street in a STATE where everyone but convicted felons and nut cases can have a concealed carry permit?? comsidering how against firearms you are dig you double up on the kevlar undershirts or what i bet you didnt do anything different; in fact you prolly did less.............

Re: parking brake handel

Rob, thanks for the link. I think I found a light greystone on ebay.

And just an FYI, I guess your are refering to the NYC mayor, but I am actually a republican and a card carring member of the NRA. My frinds have refered to me as the mayor long before that douche was elected. I live in a development (sub urbs) and I know pertty much everyone, including 3 of my best friends from high school. Hence I have been the neighborhood mayor since the day I bought my house 10 years ago.

Re: parking brake handel

I put a Leather one from an 08 Overland in mine....cost me a mint though! They are not cheap. The grey ones are the most expensive ones too Rob. The slate/black ones are the cheapest.
