Interior Carbon Trim Addition....

(yes this has already been posted under the Momo Shift Knob Post, but I wanted make sure others could find the images of the carbon interior if they do a search in the future...)

I've been bothered by the stock silver interior trim on the center console and dash. It seemed very strange to me that Jeep went to the trouble of giving us real carbon trim pieces and not finishing the job elsewhere in the high touch areas of the car.

So as you can see below I decided to finish the job myself. The challenge was finding REAL carbon fiber to match the factory pieces. I reached out to the folks at CarID and they were able to hook me up with what I needed for an extra cost on top of the price quoted for the cheesy faux carbon crap they were peddling.

I'm now much happier with the aesthetics of the interior and feel that it looks much better without the harsh contrast of the bright silver trim.















Also and image of the Black Rear Brow I just installed from Just For Jeeps!

It came with my CAI.

I figured it was better than the dealer frame!

two quick questions, how well does the carbon fiber match the OEM carbon fiber (difficult to tell from the pics but looks like there are some subtle differences). and how did you decide to go with remin rather than B&I or sherwood?
