Stupid Question...Maybe??

The parking brake lever on my '08 Overland is very plain...plastic looking. I've seen other '08 Overlands on-line with nice levers where the push button is chrome, leather wrapped and a chrome ring just after the leather wrap. Does anyone know why this would be? My Overland has every possible option in it, I don't understand why my lever is different than others I've seen.
The pic is of the lever I've seen.

Re: Stupid Question...Maybe??

strange, you would think an Overland will have all the goodies. Is the whole lever leather or just the top part? My laredo came with the leather, chrome push button.

Maybe it was an early build and they put the 05-07 handle on it...only thing I could think of

Re: Stupid Question...Maybe??

Not sure if the whole lever is wrapped or just the top half. Either way, it's much nicer than the piece of crap thats in there now...it's just so plain. I can't figure it out.

Re: Stupid Question...Maybe??

green demon just explained it.


the PLAIN one was the 05-07 model.

in 08 when they went to the dark interior they changed the hand brake lever.

you got an old one while they were building yours MAYBE due to it being an early build; maybe for some other reason. since you are NOTICING this in 2011 I would suspect you arent the original owner.......so maybe the original broke and dealer said 'you can wait or you can have DOOR # 2, he chose #2 that had the OLD handle in it.

im sure i could come up with 20 scenarios as to what happened and why.,,,,,



but



you have it. you can either keep it or you can spend your money on something else. they are interchangeable on 05-10/

Re: Stupid Question...Maybe??

its like $80 for a leather handle from your dealer, i put one in my jeep over the winter. they are a HUGE PITA to swap out, but it is worth it because the stock handle looks horrible.
