Re: Chrome Body Side Molding
I bought mine from ebay (Avondale Auto Parts). It came with the chrome liftgate handle. I paid $350 CAD. The side panels literally popped off with little plastic plugs (just pull). Then I cleaned off the underneath, which was dirty, and popped the new panels on. Literally took me 5 minutes to do all 4 doors. I've never been so satisfied with something that was so simple to do.
The handle was a bit different. I was going to take it to the body shop, then thought screw it. So, I pulled off the inside back panel of the tailgate, took off the handle via 2 screws, and 2 plastic plugs (like on the side panels). After that, I swapped out the handle and put the panel back on. Total of 30 minutes being a novice at this type of work.
Best money I've ever spent, except for the Jeep itself. Made my Sport Commander look like a Limited. Pearl colour with chrome mouldings....beautiful.
