Picked up my JK last night and the tires where reading 41psi. After driving it hom 70 miles I can truthfully attest that 41 is way too high.

I started a leather cleaning/conditioning regimen and the firmness has certainly gone way down. Obviously no amount of cleaning/treating will fix destroyed leather. We have leather in our 5 year old van and I clean/treat it once a year if I remember. It's looking almost brand new (which is saying something with two small kids). My '06 GTO I picked up with 35,000 miles and the leather looks pretty good, so I'll keep up a routine there as well.

...but as I said earlier, the seat covers in the 04 Rubicon are maintenance free (although they look like excrement 10 years later, they're still doing their job).

...So I honestly believe it boils down to proper maintenance of the interior of the car will work wonders regardless of the materials as long as there's not a spot that is constantly rubbed during ingress and egress.
Seats really aren't the issue, my BFF has a 07 Santa Fe, her seats are mint leather, the steering wheel is beat...

You can treat the wheel, but it doesn't stop scuffs/nicks/general wear etc.

Good to know I'm not crazy. This is my first experience with mud terrain tires. I bumped them down to 33.5 cold and they ride a lot better. I was even considering going a little lower. Anyone else with a new Rubicon want to chime in on their tire pressure?

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Tire pressure is a compromise. Too high, and you'll wear the center of the tread pattern prematurely. Too low, and you'll wear the shoulder lugs prematurely. High pressure means better gas mileage, but faster tread wear. Low pressure means a comfy ride and even tread wear, but lower mpg. On aftermarket tires I will always go for even tire wear over one or two extra mpg. The cost of oversize tires to replace usually trumps the cost of that mpg loss. Anyway what I do is get a piece of sidewalk chalk and mark a solid line across the tread pattern horizontally. Then drive the jeep 10 feet and look at where the chalk is rubbed off. Lower pressure until you have a fairly even wear pattern, usually somewhere between 30-35 psi. There are several threads and articles that go into greater detail about off road tire pressure.

I don't think the 2 doors have them. It would cover the sub since that is about how big it would be.

This is the best way to find your proper pressure.jyst remember it will change as the temps change.

Two doors do not get a mat

I am going with the quadratec cargo mat I used in my 2013 sport JKU. I am not concerned about not having a subwolfer hole cut out.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Does anyone know how it works when you order a color that hasn't gone into production yet? My color (Copper brown) just opened up for the October allocation but production doesn't begin until November 3rd. So is November 3rd the day I should begin my "6 week countdown" til delivery? this is the time line that the dealer told me.sorry if this seems like a dumb question but this is the first time ive ordered a vehicle. I'm really just wondering if I will have the vehicle by Christmas.
