I search eBay regularly for cladding but have not yet been able to find anything for my 95 ZJ limited

Very interested to hear if others have good ideas…..

If the factory color you're referring to is the gray cladding on the non-Limited models, then Carworx Refinish Restorer is the stuff you want.

Nothing will likely be a permanent fix, because the cladding started to fade from day 1, but I have good luck with Trim Shine (aerosol can). It lasts and is easy to apply. They sell it at Wal-mart

One of the keys to the cladding mounting strips is to know how to properly remove the cladding from them. IIRC you pry out from the bottom of the cladding and then it lifts up off the top. It is a rather delicate design and can get damaged easily in minor impacts. I'll have to look through my parts from the right side of mine, but there are some differences in the mounting strips based on side of the Jeep and installation location. IIRC there's only one broken strip on the right side set that came off mine. I've had the left side off, but put it all back on because I didn't get around to opening up the wheel arches or doing the built in slider on that side yet. Those mounting straps seem like a good candidate for 3D printed replacements. Checked Thingiverse quick but didn't see anything yet.

Those are for the interior panels. OP is asking about the mounting strips for the exterior cladding along the bottom of the doors.

That ebay link I posted is new ones, and there are links to to the end pieces specific to each side, etc in that link. The only caveat is that they are $20+/ea and $17-ish/ea depending on position.

I think he might mean using a heat to bring back the cladding’s appearance...?? It’s a common trick to for faded plastic but the heat gun method can yield blotchy uneven results, shiny spots, and there’s also the risk of damage (if you’re not careful, you may melt or deform them. Or at the very least, change the surface texture).
