Nice set-up and thanks for posting pics. The brown interior gives the GC a very rich and classic look much like the Euro SUV's on the market. I've always considered the JGC to be the Range Rover of the USA lol.In the end, when I priced adding the toys I wanted to the TH, it was pretty close to the Overland anyway. I actually do like the black trim on the TH, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. As it happens, my woodgrain steering wheel is so dark it looks black anyway. I kind of wish it was a little closer to the wood trim which has an almost gray appearance, but c'est la vie. It occurred to me reading this that I've never taken pics of the interior, so I went and snapped a couple in the garage. Not great lighting of course, but...

My wife and I just fell in love with the dark sienna the first time we saw it. Still probably the most black of an interior we've ever had, but the dark brown just balances it perfectly. And yes, added Husky liners since my primary purpose of this is a "convertible" overlanding rig... my stealth Overhawk, as it were. I've built a custom deck I replace the spare tire cover with that mounts a removable drawer system, and will eventually have a fridge slide. The extra armor I'm adding is all Chief products to keep the factory look as much as possible. I love that you can still put the lower fascia back on over the front guard and sump plates. Obviously, when I add the rock rails and roof rack, those show up, but if I go barebones on the rock rails, it just changes from the red to black trim.

So by day, Sandy is just your everyday average mall crawler. But when adventure beckons, she can shed the soccer mom persona and rise up to meet the challenges ahead.

I'm just about finished with phase 1 of the build. Still have to add the Chief tie down enhancement this weekend so I can properly anchor the custom deck, then I have to figure out how I want to anchor the deck. When the double drawer is extended, the cookstove is hanging out 48", so the whole deck will rock forward if I don't anchor it to the rear tiedown. Thinking I may use a sliding gate latch that I can mount to the deck, then just slide it under the rear tiedown to keep it firm.
I love that I can keep it pretty normal when I'm not camping, still having a full back cargo area and everything else.
