Overland wood trim to summit trim
 
1 Attachment(s)
Swapped out all of my brown wood trim with the black olive out of a summit edition. I considered going with the CF wrap but didn't think it would flow well with the saddle blk interior. I had planned on only swapping out the wood wheel with either a limited leather or srt wheel but came across a part supplier that parted a summit and had most of the trim as well.

I am happy with the new look but wish the black steering wheel had a stronger grain look to it. It looks solid black in most lighting. A big thanks to deslide and sixzerofour for the the additional pointers with the removal process.

Whats the suppliers name? I've been wanting that look in my Laredo... I have black trim but I would like the contrasting chrome to break up all the black.

Thanks. He was an eBay guy and only had the one jeep that he parted. The steering wheel came from a member here. My favorite part of the swap is the saddle stitching on the wheel is a nice match to the saddle dash stitching. My brown wheel had the black stitching.


I had to order three new trim pieces and it's extremely expensive but can find it much cheaper through some online dealers.

Cool Thanks!! I've even thought about having them vinyl wrapped for a brushed aluminum look or something to match the existing silver trim.

Very nice..How easy is it to replace the wood trim pieces? I, too, am interested in replacing my lighter wood with the darker trim. Thanks

If you tend to be a DIY type person, I'd say its very easy to swap. If you plant to wrap the trim like others have done, it becomes a tougher project, imo. If you pay retail for trim pieces it will be a very costly project. You could also go with the dark Laredo trim as its cheaper but provides a similar look.
