Post Questions from a Old Newbie

1st Jeep...

Just ordered a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon on 24 Dec 11 and being unfamiliar, is there anything I should add/order/get right away I would regret not getting added from the dealer?

Also, I ordered the Katzkin leather seat package; as there are no pictures on the sight, I ordered it blind. Does anyone have this option and is it worth it (while I still have time to change?.......$$ is not a factor)

Welcome to the Forum

Just make sure that each time you check in on your build, the leather package is listed. We have another member on here who ordered it, paid for it and did not get it. If I can find the thread I'll send it on to you.

Welcome to WF! You could always put that extra money for the leather and sink it into other mods (wheels and tires, bumpers, lift, etc).

Do not perform any mod for looks alone, mod for function. I promise you if you plan your mods to improve function, you will have a Jeep that "looks" the way you want.

2012 Rubicon "Build" Question from Muddyuddertugger

Just got back from a trip and read your welcomes and posts; thanx.

I noticed from JDsDream you mentioned to check on my build. "They" sent a no reply email on 19 January saying the parts for my 2012 Rubicon were being gathered for the build; that was the last word. How do I contact them or must I go thru the dealer?

Also I read another thread about Katzkin Leather seat options (my original question amply answered - thanx) and noticed posters were saying there were color options for the seats when ordering. I must have missed that one, but again does anyone have the info to contact the build up folks to see what options are available?
