XJ Interior Paint

On my 1996 XJ,I have replaced my lower dash panel. However the color is not correct. The parts manual list the color as "Saddle". Not Chrysler "Dark Saddle & not Chrysler "New Saddle". Now trying to locate a quality plastic paint that matches. Can anyone help me. Thanks.

Re: XJ Interior Paint

Are you sure you looked at CHEROKEE and not GRAND CHEROKEE. My FSM and parts guide call out Dark Sand for the interior trim for the XJ, and Saddle for the ZJ.

Re: XJ Interior Paint

I would suggest that plastic paint more often makes a mess and has poor wear and appearance characteristics, so you would be better off to just ignore the mismatch. I guarantee that nobody else will notice or care about the color difference.
