I like that color, too.

'Ruby Red' sounds somewhat familiar to me....oh, wait...

Got my front windows tinted and found a good spot for my Jeepgarage.org sticker...

What % on the Windows. 35?

That color is phenomenal looking

As for the sticker, I like it but would only ever put stickers on my glass. Hate when sun fades it into the stuff it sits on.

It's 15%, but it's still new and the windshield is facing the sun causing the front windows to look lighter than the factory tint. It's actually a pretty close match in person.

Actually I needed a few weeks to get my other car ready to sell, plus there was something very satisfying about custom ordering and tracking it through the process.

I asked the dealer to leave my jeepgarage.org sticker on my 14 when I traded it in last Saturday for a 16 HA. I told them so the next owner can check out the forum for the wealth of info out here. If they aren't interested then they can remove it.

I have one silver one left and I'll be rep'in that on the back window after I give the HA a good bath.

Dave, Can I ask you a question about your very nice looking Velvet Red 16 Summit? Is the area under the rocker panel chrome strip also painted red? On the 14-15 Summits this area was a black plastic. I have a 14 Overland that this rocker panel is painted white which is very hard to keep clean. I am planning to order a 17 Velvet Red Summit for Sept delivery and was hoping this area was not painted but it now looks like it is. Thanks. Al

It depends.

If you order the California Appearance Package (aka 'Platinum Package' like Dave and me did), it will be painted the same color as the rest of the vehicle. If not, it will be grey - no matter what color you pick.

Thanks for your reply. That is what I was hoping for. Local dealer doesn't have any Summits yet for me to look at. Al
