Its official Saddle interior and new 730N RHR now available!!!
 
The sales manager at my local dealer just called me back and sure enough Saddle interior and the 730N RHR radio is orderable for a standard Overland. I already placed my order on the 4th and he told me my order is already beyond being able to be modified so he would have to replace the entire order. I guess not a big deal since I was only a week into it anyway. I originally ordered a dark charcoal pearl with the light beige interior but originally wanted Saddle and as soon as I found out about the new RHR radio I wanted that to.

So with all that said I just placed another order (previous order cancelled) and now have on order the following with my new VON # and all:

2011 Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4
-Hemi V8
-Dark Charcoal Pearl
-New Saddle/Black interior
-Adaptive cruise/Advanced Warning
-730N RHR radio

Im super excited now to know I was able to get 100% what I wanted. The sales manager at my dealer has been extremely helpful and he also said that he was able to input my email addy into my order and he said he hasnt tried it yet, but looks like I will get status updates directly from them when available.

Thanks,
James

Same here!

I attended a Jeep Rocks and Road event in October. Did my research and decided what I wanted, then found out I couldn't have it!

I received a call from my dealer today that they could finally place my order:

2011 GC Overland
Mineral Gray
4x4
V8 Hemi
Saddle/Black
730N RHR

Awesome!! was such a good feeling when I got that voicemail from the manager earlier. I was expecting him to say that the radio was available and nothing more, but when he said I can also get you the interior you want as well my mood went from :) to :D. Sure, the cost of my vehicle went up but the difference is relatively minor.

Congrats! I'm jealous! I didn't want the Saddle interior, but I wish I'd waited for the RHR before I bought my Overland in December. My dealer thinks he might be able to change out my 730N RER for the 730N RHR. Cross your fingers...

Yeah you know I dont think its even a big deal for guys that dont have it. These radios are very simple to swap out. So anyone not able to get it brand new I dont see any reason that you couldnt buy one yourself on ebay or whatever and swap it in or have your dealership do it.

This is great news. I've been waiting for the RHR and prefer the Saddle/Black - so it's time to order!

One curious thing... did anyone notice that the Jeep "Build your Own" website allows you to select Rugged Brown for a regular Overland? I thought they reserved that color for the Summit edition only. Maybe it's just a mistake on the web site.

The Jeep website is messed up.....they just added the Overland Summit option and somehow that messed up the Overland only part. The Summit's interior photo originally shows beige interior even though saddle is selected (which is the only selection available for the Summit). Hopefully they fix it soon to avoid more confusion.......

hmm. Maybe I will place an order for a new WK2 with saddle and the 730n and do the whole process all over again. I can always trade in my current WK2 for it :).

The issue is to buy a new 730N RHR is like $2,7000 plus labor. Sure you can sell your old 430N RHB on eBay but you'd probably only get a fraction of the price...maybe not even $500. Seems very wasteful to not make sure you get the one you want upfront.

I had asked my dealer if they would do this and they were saying they couldn't.
I asked because that is exactly what another dealer did when i bought my '05 Limited. They wanted to sell me a car on the lot and offered to swap the stereo for the nav rather then me ordering a car.
