    Stiched armrest on dorrs

    Question for the group... My JT has the red stiched armrest on the doors. The other day my passenger door side got punctured by some metal in 3 locations. Its not that bad, but wanted to see if anyone knows if I can get a replacment ordered and where? I have searched JL and JT parts, but keep striking out. Thanks everyone.

    Probably the dealer. However there are some good mobile repair guys out there that can make it look really good for a fraction.

    Post a pic if you can. Likely a dealer item. However, I've had good luck in the past with this Permatex repair kit if the instructions are followed exactly:

    Thanks. Trying to avoid the dealer. At work right now, but will get a picture posted later today.

    I figured. But considering how new the JT is aftermarket or wholesale replacements might be a bit hard to come by for a bit. I’d go the repair rout for the time being. You’d be surprised at how well they turn out when done properly. If you were closer I’d come out and do it for you.

    I'll bet the armrest is not available separately and that it's a door panel assembly from the dealer $$$$$$$$$$. A junkyard may have a wrecked JT and that part is available. Personally, I'd repair it and move on if it were me.

    EDIT: Actually looks like these guys have one. You'd want to make sure that the trim package is identical though:

    I’m with WJCO. Those will be super easy to fix and done right, you’ll never even know it happened.

    While I don’t do textile repair I am a mobile vendor (paintless dent repair) I run into guys that do those types of repair. That’s a very easy repair for someone who knows what they’re doing. There’s no way I’d pay for a OEM replacement knowing what those guys can do.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
