Are those the Katzskin leather seats or the regular Jeep black leather option seats?

Very very sweet ride. I love it! Only thing I would order different is A/T. Awesome color, love love love it

well, not my cup of tea... But, it is still better than the baby puke tan '80 CJ7 I use to have. Only advantage to the '80s color was it saved me a fortune on clean up. Dirty or clean it always looked the same.

thanks! not Katzkin....just regular black leather. options were black or tan leather...I thought Tan might not look good with Green. I love the seats...they are beautifully done.

Stock Rubicon Articulation

I have 89 Km on it total and 44 of that was spent offroad trying out the amazing capabilities of a stock rubicon. I didn't do anything fancy, or anything too extreme. I just wanted to get a feel for it. HOLY CRAP this is my first Jeep and I've never been so impressed with the abilities of a stock vehicle before. It's AMAZING. trash talk the colour as much as you want, I love it, it was my money, and I'm EXCITED! SO FUN! The sway bar disconnect is awesome.

Just drove mine home from the dealer yesterday!

The dealer had already instaled the lift, AEV wheels and Nitto Trail Grapplers when I first saw it. It really caught my eye and I decided it was time to buy a new Jeep. I will miss my 2003 Sahara, but at least it's staying in the family.

Time to update my profile...

So, do me a favor and test out my theory.... Park your Gecko Green next to a Dozer Orange and see if a black hole forms......

I love it, I just got my Gecko as well.

eventually getting the AEV wheels and lift.


Most of the haters drive the bland black,silver,red Jeeps that everyone and their brother has.


Keep it original!

That's funny, because my dealer has delivered ONE silver RUBICON within the past year. Wanna know who owns it?

BTW, my brother owns a Toyota Highlander.

Another thing....How is this person going to "keep it original" when you're all ready to run out and make an exact carbon copy of it?

Never seen that color before. Not trashing it, just a first for me seeing it.

The upside is, if it ever gets stolen, the folks on the space station will be able to see it and guide you to it.
