Any way to remove faux wood grain finish?

I think its hideous and was wondering if you could remove it? Would you have to repaint underneath it or could you just peel it off?

Doubt it.

I assume you're talking about the ZJ (93-98) designs, because The WJ design looks good, but the ZJ looks like crap.

I don't know about the ZJ's but with the XJ's you could in fact remove it. You removed the molding (putty in holes), and then peel the sticker off. In most cases you'd find the original color underneath the stickers, unfortunately, UNFADED. Meaning you'd have to repaint if you were going to leave the holes anyway.

Look around on the XJ boards, there are pictures of de-wooded XJ's there. Also some "writeups" on how it was done.

Good luck.
