The black grille with granite rings is what gave me a bit of pause. I don't like the contrasting rings on the Sahara and the black grille okay on some colors.
Yeah, I didn't order the red interior with my 10A - I ordered black with black stitching. I tossed and turned with that decision. I just don't think I could tolerate black seats, red stitching and red seat belts very long.
I'm also not on board with those trim rings on the grill.. my Red Rock came with those and when I compare to my 10A, I like them without the contrasting rings. It makes the grill slots look huge compared to the old style. That's an easy fix, you can remove and paint those body color and reinsert them - although I wouldn't do that on my Red Rock.
The thing is once you start adding trim rings and decals to partially blackout the hood, headlight bezels and so forth, you may not be able to eliminate one without the other - taking the chance of it looking half done with a few black accents.
This reminds me what Chrysler started doing with Dodge and Plymouth muscle cars during the '70s.
