SIGNATURE RELEASES SPECIALIZED CONTOURED TRIM RING FOR JEEP RENEGADE

Improved fit and finsih for Jeep's newest offering

 

Wixom, Michigan…Signature Automotive Products has developed a trim ring specially contoured for the Jeep Renegade®, the newest Jeep® product launched in 2015.  The trim ring is pre-bent at eight places to specifically match the four ribs in the Renegade’s roof skin.

Bending an aftermarket trim ring is often a challenge for the restyler, so using Signature’s pre-bent Renegade trim ring will save significant installation time for the effort of eight bends, plus eliminate the risk of improper fitment if done in-house.  Many trim rings bent in-house develop cracks and paint chips which lead to rusty surfaces; this in turn results in unhappy dealers and customers.  Also, in-house bent trim rings are not warranted in the aftermarket.

Of particular note to restylers is that Jeep does not offer an OE sunroof for the Renegade Sport, and the optional OE sunroof for the enhanced Renegade Limited represents a $1,395 upgrade on top of the $6,800 premium for the model upgrade.  Both Renegade models present a terrific sales opportunity to restylers, and restylers that incorporate the specialized trim ring will achieve a beautiful fit and finish to the Signature 840 Sunroof.

Dave Gienapp, Signature’s president, noted, “Our restylers have been asking for the new Renegade trim ring once it became apparent there was a lot of work in bending the ring in house with the risk of imprecise bending for each of the eight rib indentations.  This new ring takes that risk away and makes each Renegade sunroof installation much more efficient.”

Signature Automotive Products is a leading supplier of aftermarket sunroofs and the world’s only manufacturer/distributor of the myTop electric convertible for Jeep Wranglers®.  Visit www.signature-autoproducts.us or www.myTopbySignature.com, or call Signature’s Customer Service and Support staff at (248) 624-6011.
