plastic trim removal on laredo?

as some know i want to get a WJ in a few months but i have this question. With the laredos, can i remove the platic moldings and bumpers and put on bumpers and side moldings from say a Limited? do they sell bumper/molding kits for such a mod?

i just dont like the plastic look on the laredos which steers me away from getting one, but if i can do this then i wouldnt have a problem gettinga laredo.

thanks guys!

Re: plastic trim removal on laredo?

anyway, i had my laredo cladding painted to match but i bought a limited style front bumper (because i like the smoother shape) and it just bolted right up no problems. They dont sell kits so what youll have to do is either paint them like i did or find a few wreckers and snag the decent pieces off and have them body matched

Re: plastic trim removal on laredo?

there was an andrew that did it, i found the thread last night.

thanks to you andrew for your help. im definitly going to look into doing this. my cousin does body work for a living so im sure he would do it for me. when i look around for jeeps i find laredos for cheaper than Limiteds so thats why im looking into this. also andrew where did you get your SRT reps/tires. I just talked to an ebay store and they said the tires i would need are $400-$500..thats nuts

Re: plastic trim removal on laredo?

$400 - $500 worth of tyres?!



I feel he may be right. I'm looking into SRT reps for my WJ and I'll need all new tyres at around 90 per tyre so it adds up
