I also see Commanders with it all the time...although it probably has a little more red in it.

Re: WHy do they call the saddle int. "NEW"??

The seats are obviously different and the leather is slightly different in color and grain. I like the saddle color from the Wrangler much better than the saddle in the GC.

Its nappa leather on the WK2, at least on Overlands, Capri on Limited and Laredo X...I have no idea what is used on the WK.

Re: WHy do they call the saddle int. "NEW"??

I can tell a difference between the saddle leather on a 2011 and on my 2008. It is a lighter color on the 2011. I was torn about the saddle before I saw it. I really like it on 2008, but I am still on the fence about the 2011.
