CommanderOh Yeah - Wood Grain Commander
Posted by mike on 2006/2/6 20:32:50 (1590) reads

Maybe it's just me, but I've always loved the old Grand Wagoneers with wood grain. Does anything say "rugged" more than faux wood grain on a 5 mpg behemoth (yes, I had to look up "behemoth" to figure out how to spell it).

Well then, if you're like me, your ship has come in - a company called Auto Trim Design out of Wisconsin is offering a wood panel graphics kit for the Jeep Commander. The kit goes for about $800 and boasts that seasoned installers should be able to apply the kit in just a couple of hours.

(thanks to Jon for sending us the link!)

Westshady is probably right and it will look like crap after about 1/2 a decade.

Even if he is right the look of the kit still has the initial problem of looking incomplete. I think it should have covered the lower areas of the vehicle too such as the area underneath the door guard, etc. As it stands it seems rather odd appearing by simply skimming along the tops of the fenders and doors.

Yeah and with only a 5 year warranty the graphics should start fading and cracking at about the same time the old wagoneers did too.

At one time in my life, I would have hated it. Maybe I'm getting old and retro....but it's kinda cool.
I'd like to see it in person.
(I've always liked the old Grand Wagoneers, I always associated them with Purdy shotguns, bird dogs, hunting lodges, and single malt scotch.)
