So I wanna put Limited painted bumpers on a plain Laredo...

Hey everyone, I am gonna get another Jeep, and I was thinking instead of shelling out the extra money for a Limited, why not put painted color matching bumpers and trim on a non painted bumpers/trim Laredo so it looks like a Laredo SE. Is this doable and easy? Help/comments appreciated

thanks

Why bother? It's just more paint to scratch/chip while wheeling.

You know, I have a 2000 WJ laredo, and I was thinking of doing the same thing. Then I thought about it, and thought that it might be expensive. I dont know, if you do it, I want to see it, and you will have to tell me how it went.

Why would I? Because it looks better. Wop, I'll do that. I don't think it would be too bad, it beats the 2 grand premium over the Laredo to get them with the Limited, as SE's weren't available then. I have priced front and rear bumper skins at about $4xx, and the side trim can't be more than about half that, then there's installation. I think I could tackle the skins myself, the trim would bt a body shop's responsibility. If I lucked out and got a TSi or a SE, I wouldn't bother. They have a sweetness all their own, as they are both different... don't get me wrong, unpainted cladding owners, I'm NOT knocking you, I just think sometimes the painted looks more 'Grand Cherokee'

Sincerely

Sean
