What you said is true for most. But it doesn't address the case where some people (maybe just me) might have objections to leather that are not cosmetic or functional.

As someone who is a bit naive to the process, it doesn't seem like it would be that hard to just put in the cloth seats instead since they already have them for the normal Saharas, hence my question.

I feel for everyone that was hoping for a Rubi build. I was hoping that we'd all get our wish. There were way more disappointed posts about XP today than I expected.

I would say such, would indeed be a pretty active lifestyle.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

When I go into the dealer system I can configure a Sahara in XP without adding leather. The system will print an order summary with the color listed as Plum Crazy Purple. It will not let me configure a Rubicon though. Check with your dealers for accuracy of this comment, but it looks as though a basic Sahara can be ordered in XP.

Here is how I configured one this morning. XP Sahara without leather. Like I said, check your dealer to be sure but it looks like you can build a cloth seat Sahara. Rubicon and Sport were not able to be configured in XP.

I think the real question at this point, is if your order will make it to D1 status. Or will it eventually get cancelled?

I would be real interested in knowing how you make out. Please keep us informed.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I ordered a 2016 Xtreme Purple Sahara yesterday for my daughters 16th bday in Jan. She will flip given she wanted purple but jeep hasn't made a purple on in many years. I can't wait to see the look on her face!

I really wanted the willys for this but got close with upgrading thr rims and going with the chrome package.

Thanks for the info! This was how I learned purple would live again. BTW the paint is the same code as the plum crazy challeger. It's awesome!

And I'm pretty sure the answer to Walts question is No. Here's a screen shot of the current order guide, you can see it specifically says Backcountry Only.

I did not order an XP. I have a GCM in D1 status now. I was just using the configurator in the Jeep system and it did let me put it together. Typically if a combo is not available, it will not let you build it. I just built one up to see if it would take without leather and it did.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Dealer Configurators have been wrong before when new options were being added, I'm sure they'll be wrong again and am betting that in this case they're wrong now. Any order for a standard Sahara that goes in will be kicked back by the factory as invalid.

Although for me the argument is moot as I don't want a Sahara or a special edition based on the Sahara. I've gotten used to the capabilities of my Rubi and that is my starting point.

Could be. Just reporting what's in the system this morning. Worked in the dealership for 32 years and have seen errors in the configurator and order guides forever. Just hoping the XP opens up wider for everyone waiting.
