Pics of trim swap
 
1 Attachment(s)
i ended up swapping my dark olive trim with a member here for his overland wood trim and i also got the wood wheel from him as well, i think it worked out for the both of us. I know most people dont like the wood look, but i happen to like it and i think my jeep looks great with it. we both ended up happy, thats what counts..:D

Nice job. Looks nice tho I like the leather wheel. I guess the wood wheel is because the look is more or less standard in the luxury car world into which the WK2 is trying to break.

Looking forward to your pics trelos.

I think this may have improved both vehicles.

gc4x4, your WK2 has come a long ways, lots of improvements that I see you have done. Did the dash have to come out to swap the trim? And how difficult or easy was it to swap around the dash and also in the doors?

No the dash didnt have to come out, just the center climate control trim and the driver side kick panel to access a couple of bolts, you have to remove the door panels to remove the door trim, they are held in by 7 philips screws. It wasnt the most difficult job to do, just time consuming.

Anyone exchange a limited (leather) wheel with an overland wheel? I'm curious if the wood in the wheel is too different from the fake wood on the dash. Anyone know? I love the look of the wood wheel

Many limited owners have done this...
It's the same color.

User Scurvy on here did this. Here is his picture of the Overland Steering Wheel on his Limited. http://jeepgarage.org/attachment.php...9&d=1311617821 His brother works for the company that makes the wood steering wheels. I remember him saying he was happy with the match of the Limited trim with the real wood in the steering wheel.
