Finding Cladding color code?

Hey guys, going to replace my girlfriends families jeep front bumper to sell it and I wanted to make sure I was getting the correct color cladding. Went to Wjjeeps and couldnt find anything directly to it, i could have missed something but I need to make sure I get the right color one. I know certain color exteriors came with different cladding, her car is graphite metallic clear coat.

Heres the ones I found I could get, and pick up in person so itd be a steal if its all legit and not sketchy.

Dark gray and Brownstone choices, is there anywhere on the car where I could find a cladding code? I know its not on the vin but is there anything in the door or anything maybe? Im away from the car now or id be looking for myself, thanks again everyone!

Re: Finding Cladding color code?

You should be able to tell if you have the dark grey or brown. If its just faded, you might be able to just use a plastic cleaner to bring the color back.

I think if they're both faded, the colors have a similar look. If the bumpers you're wanting to replace isn't cracked but just faded, you should just get a few cans of krylon fusion satin black spray paint and paint them. A lot of people do that and it comes out very nice. Not to mention the black looks better than the grey or brown.

One more thing. I think the only jeeps that came with the brown cladding/bumpers were the woodland brown or light pewter metallic color jeeps. Someone else could probably chime in and correct me if I'm wrong but I think all other colors came with the grey.

Re: Finding Cladding color code?

finally getting around to this jeep project. So Im guessing the process is this:

-Sand plastics (1000 grit)
-Alcohol wipe down
-plastic primer (optional)
-3-4 layers of krylon fusion

Does this hold up in the long run or you gunna see it fade bad again? I figure with a layer of clear over this is would be better protected but I dont wanna get that shinny look, still want the matte plastic OEM look.

Sorry about bumping this so late, spent a week in the Virgin Islands and forgot about this all together before I went and saw stuff today. Appreciate it in advance!
