Nice but I didn't know they got rid of some gauges (ie. Battery, Oil Temp). This is from a XJ owner.

That's not news. We've known that for a year and a half. It's on our "they should of" list.

speaking of instruments, i noticed that the bezel on the instrument cluster is SILVER. is that common on all Patriots or just the '08s? Limiteds? my Compass is all black. the silver at least makes more sense with the silver center dash bezel and the trim on the door panels.

wish MINE all matched....well, maybe 'someday'

Hey looking great.
One question. Are those scratches on the wheel next to the screws?
If so where did they come from?

Enlarged pic shows them to be chalk marks.
