Do a quick search on here and you'll find a ton of info on the Summit's leather.. We covered that many many moons ago.

Basically it's better than what the lower trims get. Natura plus > Nappa.

NICE! I wasn't sure which side I wanted on the outside - the OWL or the plain black. Thanks for posting. I was gonna go black, but I think OWL looks pretty nice.

Natural leather is a fake leather, like leatherette. It is a fabric that feels like leather and very durable. It won't crack over time. napa is real leather.

Thanks to everyone who contributes to making up this site. It was a long wait and frustrating at times but on the flip side, there were many laughs. Looking forward to growing a bit older with you all and seeing where this new line in the Jeep family takes us. Will, Milous, chevy, marlon and Scott, special thanks for the extra effort you guys put into keep us in the loop as best you can.
Damn that's fine looking! Congrats!

this is what I ordered from the Chemical Guys. If you spray a small amount on a microfiber towel and then rub it on it isn't supposed to fill the perforations in the leather. Haven't tried it yet as I'm still waiting delivery of my unicorn. Has been sitting at the rail terminal 20 minutes from my house since Tuesday. AAARRGGGHHH!!!

Absolutely gorgeous!! Looks just like what I ordered. Dealer emailed today, said he walked his lot just to double check, but no delivery yet....

I'm aware of this. The point was to use the search button to find all the info that's been posted here about it during the original launch.

And the reason it's used is not a cost cutting thing, rather a durability thing. Bc Natura Plus is actually more expensive. Which is why it's only used in the Summit. The common theme in the industry is that "real" leather isn't good enough anymore. Natura Plus will outlast the Nappa used it the Overlands. Testing was done which proves this. You'll hear more of the trend shift in the coming years.

Anybody noticing a high pitched noise from engine at highway speeds and under load? Is this turbo noise? This is my first diesel so I am not sure what is normal and what isn't normal. It is audible with radio off but not heard over radio.

How do you like them so far? This is what I was leaning toward doing.

So not too loud, at least relative to a/t tires?
