Thanks for sharing. I see your point and actually do like suede inserts and can concur with the not too hot/cold feel. My best friend has an older Overland series with very comfortable and plush real suede leather seating. I just didn't find the imitation suede on the Trailhawk at the Auto Show to be as comfortable and appealing. Not even sure the shifter was real leather vs. the stitched leather on the higher models. But it does have great appeal for the trails, hopefully the price is right in keeping somewhere between Laredo and Overland rates.

? Does the suede make it "difficult" to adjust your butt in the seat ("slide" into a more comfortable position after bit of driving) ?

HI ! Glad to "see" you - not often enough - and, I have a HUGE wish; and that would be for Jeep to ADD that BROWNSTONE to the too limited color choices of the 75th G.C.'s . . . . ANY CHANCE IN (fill in at your discretion!) ? ? ?

I bet they would if YOU asked - put in a suggestion in the "suggestion box" by the punch in / out Clock ! ? :thumbs:

EDIT; Brainstorm (fart) - ? - Is there any way (legal of course) for someone at the Factory to take a couple (3) interior shots of the 75th Laredo Cloth Tan/Beige seats ? The Very Few out here do not really show the "true color" and I am thinking that INSIDE the Factory, just before they are moved out, may show the "real nature" of the 2 tone affect of the Cloth / mesh combo ? ? ? No Dealers within my reach have or plan on ordering it this way - they all get the Dark Gray/Black Cloth ! Thanks, even if you can't !

This is fake suede. It's some artificial crap that feels like rat fur. Many auto manufacturers are using it now under different names. Had it in my Ford SHO and if anything drops or spills on it it's impossible to clean and does not wear well.

Thanks for the insight "STEEL," but I gotta agree with Bones & Overlanding on the assessment, sorry ! Dammit, why can't the Locals order one up so I can go SEE 1st hand ? So Far, that video by MikesCarInfo on YouTube in HD gives a pretty good feel for what it ACTUALLY looks like ! ? I'm "torn," officially befuddled . . . think I'm gonna cry . . .
