Re: Question about Saddle Interior

From my understanding regarding the New Saddle/Black combo on Overlands, all 2011 models will have the saddle stitching, while my 2012 Overland, along with many others, has the light grey stitching. But it appears that now some 2012 are coming with the saddle, so...?

I was disappointed not to get the saddle stitch, but it doesn't bother me anymore and I love my Jeep.

Where did you get the info that 2011's had saddle stitch and 2012's get the light grey?

Re: Question about Saddle Interior

My 2012 Overland has the Saddle stitching. Looks great BTW. (better than pictures can show it)
Here is a pic I took this AM:

Re: Question about Saddle Interior

Woody, your dash looks really shiny, are you treating it with something?

The (iPhone) pic does make it look shinier than it really is, but yes I did rub the entire interior including the dash with Meguiar's Leather wipes (from Crappy Tire).

I just got back from a 2000 kilometer road trip from Erin to Quebec City, Montreal and Ottawa, and the interior was filthy. The leather wipes brought the seats and dash back to like new condition.
I wouldn't use them all the time, but it was a quick fix.

Re: Question about Saddle Interior

Interesting story I heard from my dealer the other day concerning the leather dash on the Grand Cherokees. It seems all of the leather dashes are made by a small shop in Wyoming, in a small garage type shop with about 12 employees.

I was told this shop burned down not too long along, halting the production of the leather dash for a while. It seems Chrysler came to the aid of the manufacturer and helped to re-build the shop so production could get back underway. Now this comes from a reliable person at the dealership (something to do with being in the family) and if it is true, that is awesome on the small shop aspect and the help from the factory on getting back on their feet (and us the leather dashes). It may be old news, I just thought this was cool.

Zaino leather cleaner and conditioner works wonders also.

Because there was no mention of the light grey stitching until the 2012's came out.

Mine was one of the first 2012 builds and it had the grey, and when I got it, I started a thread here and on another forum asking if anyone else did. Turns out that a few other early-build 2012's had the grey as well.

But it does seem that all the stitching is back to Saddle.

I think the grey stitching is another one of the production flaws that got missed and was again missed in quality control.
All the brochures from 2011 and 2012 both show saddle stitching on the black dash with saddle interior. Mine is being built on Wednesday, if it shows up with anything other than saddle stitching, I'm gonna get them order me the proper dash.
