overland trim parts
 
ok, I have an 05 limited, my steering wheel looks like shit. Some time ago I found an 06 overland wheel on ebay for a couple hundred. well I immediately found out the wood grain and color is off. So I have been trying to get all the trim parts with a little effort as possible: ebay, forums.

well I have 3 parts: wheel, drivers side switch and center console top part. The window just came in to day and I think it may be wrong. It is definatly not real wood, it came off and 06 commander. take a look and let me know if this is right.

It looks like someone put one of those glue backed wood overlays over the oem trim on the commander piece..definatly does not match the overland trim.

For what I see I can see that the Window Switch Wood grain came off of a Limited WK. The steering wheel and the A/C control woodgrain look just about the same.

I think you need to limit your search to an Overland from the same year as the wheel and center panel. I think they change the wood grain often, and the Overland is the only one with real wood.

my 05 limited is wood, I think. at least it looks it compared to that commander part I got from lkq. As to it being from a limited, there is no way unless the commander limited had different wood. the limited wood is darker and has a stripped wood pattern. The listing said it was from a 06 commander, is it possible that it was from a 08+. When checking just for jeeps it says look under grand cherokee for trim parts.
the other thing is that it was a chryco date of july 2005?

Also, the wheel was from a 06 grand cherokee and the center console was from a 06 commander.

ok further update: there are many trim levels??? I checked and there are 3 different woods; the wk wood (window switch above), Limited (Not Pictured) and the overland. there are also diff types of non wood. Who knew

ok now I am real confused. j4j.com says the wk wood trim is the SAME as the limited, but the parts in my wk look nothing like it. will ad pic in a min

The one that is not attached is a "burl", and the installed one is probably called Zebrano, or something similar. Maybe there's nomenclature in the order that will help you to match what you want.
