Can you get leather seats and non-body colored fenders in any other model then the rubi and hard rock rubi? Sahara is out for me because fenders are always body colored.

You can add the Mopar Premium Sound and Leather (AJC) option to a Sport S for $2,695. It comes with 115V Auxiliary Power Outlet, Alpine upgrade, Heated Front Seats, and Katzkin leather seats (which are different from the regular factory leather seats).

The Katzkin leather is gray...so watch out. A guy got the package last year with the camel and black interior on his Tank Jeep thinking the leather was black and it looked horrible. He had to re-order.

Yep. With that package, the "black" leather is actually a medium gray.

If you want Katskhin (sp?), why overpay at the dealer? Find a local upholstery shop and spend much less for the same product (which, IMO, looks and feels FAR better than Jeep factory leather). You get tons of color choices, including the ability to go two-tone, accent color piping, etc. So if you want actual black, you can get it.

Rhino vs GCM vs Anvil

Found some Rhino colored Cherokees this weekend. They actually had GCM and Anvil parked right next to them.

Really nice work, thanks! What is your opinion after seeing it in person? I personally think it will look great on a JK. It is kind of in between anvil and GCM.

That's some good detective work right there.. thanks Gotbru. Looks like one of those colors you just have to see in person... just like Anvil when it first came out.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

It is really a neat color. It totally changes in different lighting. The best description I can give is a darker Anvil. I was surprised when I went back and looked at the pics how similar it looked to Anvil in bright light. In person, it looks a bit darker. In low light, it almost looks black.

Several other posters here have mentioned the Katzkin leather as an option. I didn't like the black leather in my 2014 Hydro Blue JK Polar and went with Katzkin leather. You literally have like 40 choices of leather colors and even pick the color of the thread used in stitching the leather. The leather quality is top notch. Here's how mine look.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Catzkin Leather. Can someone help me with this option. Is this something done through the dealer and charged extra? I do not want to pay for seats on my new order just to have them ripped out and replaced. How does this work? Thanks Tim
