It's not gonna happen unless you feel like spending a TON of money. Not only is the trim not easy to swap, but word is the trim around the rear windows is actually part of the window assembly. You will actually have to buy entire new windows and have your jeep disassembled to install those. Seriously, either just pay a shop to paint or wrap them, it's not that big of a deal, the HA looks great as is and would be much easier and cost effective to just have a shop paint or wrap them. Even the SRT has chrome trim with exception to that new special edition.

Better make sure that paint or wrap job is done correctly or the windows will look terrible

I doubt anyone here with a newer $40+k vehicle would settle for a half ass job. If it's going to be done either with paint or wrap it's gonna be done right. I tinkered with gloss black wrap myself and it's not an easy job for sure. The lower straight strips are fairly easy, but I don't know how they can do the curved sections perfectly.

Sometimes you don't know it's a half ass job till after the person completes it.

Re: Got my 2016 today!!

2016 HA owners thread?

picked up this beauty last night. absolutely love it. everything seems so well thought-out. the shifter is great. only issue is the windshield has a crack in it, but i opted to take it as-is and have them replace the windshield tuesday. that means tint has to wait, but i'll live.

thanks to all on this forum for pointing me in this direction, whether you knew it or not. couldn't be happier.

absolutely killah lookin'

I am the last guy to be a negative nancy but just be very inquisitive about the windshield....someone also had a bad new windshield replaced and it was replaced with non-acoustic glass...I would take a pic of your corner showing the part number and the word "acoustic" for back up...also, when it was installed he had FCW and auto-headlamp operation issues and it was traced to the camera being pushed back slightly into the bracket when the new windshield was installed. It was all corrected and he was totally taken care of. You will likely not have to deal with any of that.

Again, awesome look.

High Altitudes do not come with the acoustic windshield. He is however correct that the windshield camera/sensor thing may need to be calibrated.

Re: Got my 2016 today!!

That confuses me though.. Didn't the Limited get an acoustic windshield for 2016? So doesn't the Overland (HA) have an acoustic windshield?

U have one so u would know but r u sure? Thought every JGC for 16 got it...GAK sales code....so the HA is the only 16 with std windshield glass? Wouldn't b the first non-sensical they they have done...
