Can anyone help me find this trim part?

It is the trim that goes around the front turn signal/side marker lights. Edit: This is on a 1995 Grand Cherokee.

this part isn't a trim piece, if you remove all the lights and the grille you can see it is one big piece all the way across the front of the jeep. get another from a junkyard if you really need it. It's not hard to remove, just time-consuming since you have to remove the grille and all the lights on the front.

^like he said, junkyard. Who knows maybe you'll score on other stuff too! Junkyards are treasure troves

You're probably in the wrong forum with a 2002 WJ and should be over in the WJ forum.

But regardless since you're here that trim piece is part of the whole header panel which goes on the full front of your WJ.

The first part of this write-up for replacing the radiator is helpful for removing the header panel.

As others have said you can go to a jy to remove one if you find it in good condition. They do sell aftermarket ones and don't know if the below one from Rockauto is any good or not at $35 plus shipping.

Wouldn't doubt it's flimsy/cheap at that price and a brand known as "Various MFG". Saw a Crown on an online search which may be heavier duty at $100. Good luck.

That's definitely a ZJ fender.

I was wondering about that. Enough so that I got out in the cold to look at the WJ. Its called a welt. It fits over part of the header panel,same piece as described above but a different year. 55029634 right side 55029635left side. JY ones are usually in bad shape. But jeesh they've went up in price. That piece of rubber is $60-80 at online dealers I looked at. JY looks better. Zj's had em',WJ's dont.

Darn, I also have a WJ and missed that in the photo. Welp, I'll have to go look at mine too.

Wow! I never expected them to be that high in price. And I guess I shoulda posted this other pic to keep confusion down.

If you're working on a Jeep other than what's showing in your profile can you mention what it is? In another words evidently you're working on a ZJ and what year?

I apologize, it is on a 1995 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 I6. I've owned a 2002 Grand since 2012 and recently bought this 95 Grand as a graduation 'gift' for my son which is quickly turning into a 'gift/project'. It runs and drives good but has multiple small issues, one of which required replacing the front lights which also required replacing the header panel. In replacing all of this we learned that these rubber pieces probably need replacing too but I couldn't find them anywhere. Now that they've been found new for $70.00 each (Thanks Coralman!), I'm sure I can figure out a way to reuse them or improvise with something else.

On the originals I had I used a contact cement to secure them to the panel.

These seem to have shrunk. I need to figure out a way to 'recondition' them. And then we'll definitely use some contact cement during reassembly.

Rubber epoxy is your friend I have rebuilt many items that could not be found with it.

I have had numerous zjs. The trim piece really does nothing. When I installed my new header panel I left them off. Its been 4 years and no issues.

Of course it does nothing, that's why its a trim piece. It does add to the look of the ZJ though; I think it looks better with the rubber trim.
