With the really dark seats, I really want the lighter contrasting lower dash.
If you got cloth, then you got black seats regardless. With cloth, only the color of the dash, console, and stitching, changes.

Obviously, yes. I'm talking about the dash color in my specific case.
But for others who got leather, same issue.

2017 Dark Saddle





2016 Dark Saddle


I was not referencing the Jeep.com photo, I was referencing photos posted previously of Red Rock Concept interior.

We have already seen the amaretto interior used, as it was also used in the production Red Rock special edition. I have personally seen one in the flesh, and the amaretto is much deeper than dark saddle. It should ONLY be ordered with black interior, as I am confident that the amaretto and dark saddle will clash.

If you seen the leather being used in the new Sound&Leather package AJA, and it is indeed a color match to the leather used in the Red Rock, then that's the "eye witness" confirmation we're looking for. Thanks.

Here's the cloth pics.
2017 shows the dark dash, 2016 shows the lighter one we are all familiar with.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

The waiting is killing me! Lol.
White Willys Wheeler W w/Alpine, 430, automatic (Dealer didn't offer me tail gate reinforcement or LEDs)
Ordered 8/10
D1 8/29
Estimated Ship Date: 9/27
I'm on a first name basis with Jeep Chat Reps, they must hate me by now. Lol. They all give me widely varying responses when it comes to estimated dates. Some tell me 8/27, some tell me it's delayed 2 more weeks, some tell me there is no date. It's weird. I got my order print out from the dealer and it has estimated ship date on it of 8/27. It's a great base jump point for upgrading with Mods.

One chat rep said the build process is to lump like features with like features so they can maximize the build processing to get more out faster. They also said that the more options you add the longer it takes because it's less likely someone has a build like yours so it has to be scheduled for more shops and fit into everyone's production and requires someone to watch it more closely. No idea if this is true, but it makes sense to me.

Happy waiting!!!!!

Along these lines, I see the picture of the white Sahara with the top off, driving on an open highway, is back. This is the one with the "photo shopped" spare tire. You can tell this because it is "mounted" with an opening in the wheel at 6'oclock, and a spoke at 12'oclock (which is an impossibility).
There is all sorts of photoshop hijinks happening in the 2017 brochure. Do a scroll through it and see how many jeeps are missing antennas!

Yeah, I really should be more patient. I think this loaner car is getting to me. I REALLY don't like the Cherokee.

You need to just pony up the small cost to become a premium member of JeepGarage and let Milous update you 3+ times a day. No more guilt over bothering Jeep.com or your dealer and you get all the updates you need. Warning though it will become very addicting to check multiple times a day and scroll down to your name to see that you are still sitting in D1.

I got lucky I traded a 2015 Z71 extended cab 4X4 on my Jeep and they are letting me drive it until mine gets in.
I would rather have the Jeep but I ain't hurting.

Yeah, mu sales guy wasnt smart. He was going to let us do that with My wife's 13 Elantra, but then said he would prefer we sold it elsewhere so he doesn't have to deal with it. So I sold it to my brother inlaw with a planned date when we were promised the jeep. They were way off on that date so I demanded a loaner car. I think he got in trouble because they could have made more money and are already selling the Wrangled under cost according to the order sheet and they are out a loaner for 30+ days. Happy they made it right though. The Jeep is my wife's. I have an F150 Crew Cab because we tow toys.
