Haha!! That "ugly ass tan" sure feels better in TX 'round about August, your other choice then is "burnin' ass black"!!

Thats my experience also with searching for a light colored Summit here in Chicagoland ..everything around here is Black..even in the mid west dark interiors get damn hot...can't imaging living in the southwest with a black exterior with a black interior...talk about a heat sink

That's what the cooled seats are for to keep your chestnuts from roasting on an open fire.

Yeah sorry, I didn't mean to insult anybody - to each his own.

And I'm a former Texas boy - know full well how black can literally cook your ass down there in the summer.

I think those may be the 18s available on the overland... Not sure though.

Those wheels come with the off road adventure II. Note the Trail Rated badge.

Thanks Buckaroo!...as ColoradoDriver noted, when opting for the ORAII on the Overland, the standard 20s (WRD) are substituted with the 18s that are standard on Limiteds, ( aluminum twin five spoke satin finish, code WBL).
Summits get 20s, a totally different style wheel , in chrome finish, code WSC.

No insults heard! Heck, I just happen to live in an area where the majority of unimproved roads are white caliche, and as good looking as black, granite, and max steel look, they'd spend the majority of the year being dusty white/tan. That's why my new CRD will more than likely be Cashmere (unless I can get Pacific Blue!) Here's to May ordering!!
