?!! I am coming up on 35K miles on a light frost interior, and there are no marks, spots, etc. anywhere inside it.

Yes, it is a tad of a poor color for mudding, but I use Weathertechs, a dollop of elbow grease, dilute Woolite, and occasionally a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser--large size.

I suppose dealers who let mere mortals into demo units may not always understand the importance of keeping those demos clean.

Re: Overland or Summit??

I find that the black portions of my current JGC saddle interior get dirty very quickly and noticeably as compared to the tan interior I had in my previous ride. That could be merely because of the "color of our dirt" around here, of course...

But color choice is a very, very subjective and personal preference thing.

Re: Overland or Summit??

The 18s will fit, one difference to watch between the Summit and Overland is the front lower fascia. If you go offroad the overland fascia can be removed temporarily to improve clearance (but also exposes critical parts). The Summit lower fascia doesn't.

Thanks for the info. I noticed that from reading some other threads. I'll likely throw some 18's on if I ultimately go with the Summit, but the fascia i guess is something I'll have to deal with. Tow hooks will be a must so it will go under the knife anyway.

Re: Overland or Summit??

Only a little bit of trimming required for the hooks on the summit, here's the thread:

Re: Overland or Summit??

There is no difference in the tire diameter between the OEM 18" wheel setup and the OEM 20" wheel setup so they are interchangeable on any JGC.

Re: Overland or Summit??

There's a lot to consider. I chose the Overland strictly because I use it off-road and I'm moving up from a 2007 Rubicon 2DR. I need the extra passenger room without the loss of offroad capability. I realize it's no Rubicon but I just don't the 4DR Rubi for comfort...
