jeep_n_co It kinda annoys me that my dad's sport with crappy 16" wheels has better interior trim pieces that my new rubi... I got into his the other day and offered to trade him all my trim, tried to tell him I would be doing him a favor by "upgrading" his jeep to the rubi interior.

He was having none of it.

Make sure you watch the YouTube video on removing them. There is a small tab you have to depress with a screw driver to get them out. The video explains it much better.

Dash accents from Mopar

They have had these for a while now, but probably will never carry black, since it was a special edition they offered it in.

Who knows, but black looks nice for sure.

dozer_77 I am going to end up painting them myself. Those kits dont replace the areas of the dash I want. Thanks for sharing

I came across this interior link which will get you most any black piece you want, plus any other color design you may want. However, it does not replace the core pieces, such as the vent rings etc.

So I may go with removing them myself and painting, then adding some other accent pieces from the kit from Remin.

I am also just worried about not getting the airvent rings just right with paint. I was thinking about having them hydrodipped as well.

Ahhh, ok. In my old 2010 they were a little easier. On the newer ones, I guess you need to push a small tab down with a screwdriver.

Still easy.

dozer_77 Thanks for the link! Its great information to get me started. I think I will stick with black though...Im afraid putting dozer inside might make me tired of the color.

My gawd, that looks soooooo much better than my dash with the stupid silver accents... uhg!

dozer_77 Same here. I guess I will have to do it myself. It might just be hard to sand the contours of the air vents since they are small and detailed.

kramer2k Just take them off and paint it gloss black and it'll match the Altitude look.
12-10-2012 03:17 PM
cyclone88 That does look sharp. I haven't seen this option anywhere, save when people did it themselves. I'd love to know though! I've been considering painting some of that myself.

Black dash trim question

Hi everyone!

Today I saw a Jeep Sahara Unlimited (2011-2012) that had the contour of the heat vents and the glovebox handle that was painted gloss black instead of it being aluminium...and it looked amazing! Does anyone of you know if it comes factory or was it the owner that did it himself? If the owner did paint it, does anyone of you know how to do this?


Thanks!
