Leather Wrapped Dashboard and Footrest.

Any idea where to get the part #'s for the added Dash pieces (Over the center console) and the foot rest?

My question is has anyone wrapped their entire dash in leather with a baseball glove type stitch? I am interested in doing this and before I go out and find someone to do this I figured I would ask you guys if anyone has done it and if not why? On my 2009 the area above the cluster is wrapped so I figured why not do the entire dash. Your thoughts?

they are from export models but i am pretty sure that these were available to the canadians. so you COULD try any canadian dealer.

i saw the part # on the red site many moons ago.
I have seen the 2 dash pods; the one for the nav and the one for the speedo. I am not sure what FOOT REST means and cant recall ever seeing anything more than those 2 oieces.



before you go running to find these or buy these you may want to ask the canucks and such how those parts are holding up. IIRC I read they leater shrinks and they get all misshaped rather quickly.

ok, the only other pieces I have seen were the door panel uppers and the nav bezel.

maybe milous can help with the part number. i fouund it for the one you have, not this one.

a pic http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...iphotos086.jpg

seems like maybe its just an 09 bezel?

i found this

What's New for 2009

INTERIOR
• New Instrument cluster w/performance display screen
• Surround sound confirmation in EVIC (w/Kicker audio)
• New Leather interior upgrades (upper door bolsters front and rear, I/P cluster brow)
• 9" DVD screen replaces 8" screen
• RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) front window express opening
• Alcoa forged aluminum wheels treated with Dura-BrightŪ technology








then i found this:

Yes, only for the front two doors; the rears are still vinyl. Also, it looks as if suppliers or applications have changed as the '09s do NOT feature leather-wrapped UPPER door-panel portions; the only cut-and-sew leather is found on the IP bezel and front two door handle pulls.

I have seen a couple very rare early-production '08 Overland models that have the full cut-and-sew door panels and IP bezel, but that must have stopped rather quickly. I have a pic on my PC at home and would love to find a way to buy these but they are likely more expensive to replace than to just find a good upholstery shop to wrap the panels for you.

i may be confusing MY. I saw this; its an 07 or earleir. I think for te 08+ its onl the door panels and the Speedo. No center for the my Gig models.

The leather Instrument cluster bezel was an option on the 09 and 2010 SRT8s. I remember there was a 09 at Naperville CDJ that had that option package. The 06-07 export models came with the leather cluster and Nav bezels, along with the door panels that also included bright bezels around the speakers. I looked into getting the door panels a few years ago and it was over 1200.00. Any good upholstery shop can cover your bezels as well. When I get my Truck and SRT-4 projects finished, the interior my next project, I am going to remove the entire dash and have the entire panel covered, along with the upper bolster and center arm rest panel on the doors. I have been watching and would like to upgrade to the 2010 blackseats as well. I like the fact that my SRT is an 06 so I can get it to pass emissions, but really want the black interior.

As i drive a 2007 WH CRD limited, you're correct, the NAV and instrument cluster have a leather trim on top of it. As for the slide button under the nav unit, its a manual headlight adjuster, if your car is heavy loaded you can adjust the light beam up and down to avoid blinding other traffic, i think its mandatory for european cars( I live in the Netherlands), All the cars I've owned had that feature
