Well, I've come to the conclusion that I will probably not order a factory colored HT due to the super-inflated cost that Jeep is charging. ($980!!!!)
Even in the Mopar Accessories Booklet, the painted HT is only $650 more than the standard Black HT for the JKU's.
So with that said, I'm going to look a bit closer at the Sport S package while I figure out what color combos will work and what I can "live without".
So my main questions:
#1 What color/name/type are the shocks your Sport S's? There is conflicting information in the Jeep info (imagine that
) regarding the shocks that come on the Sport S. Is it normal duty? Or is it upgraded since 17 inch wheels are included?
#2 The Sahara's come with the option of saddle interior, and they also include a 115v outlet in the center console. In looking at pictures, it appears that the 115v outlet could be a modular piece. I'm not sure what is there for the Sport S's....but could someone check to see if there is room add in that outlet?
#3 Is the driver side seat height adjustable?
On a side note....has anyone painted a JKU top? I was searching through a lot of "painted hardtop" threads...but I only saw two JK/JKU's with painted tops. Has the hard top material changed or texture changed? Any problems with peeling? Anyone with factory painted HT's....how is the paint holding up?
If I do go with a Sahara, I'm thinking Winter Chill (we will see how it looks iner person first)...and with that color, I'm thinking the matching fender flares, saddle interior (leather), the "satin" bumper inserts, and a tan top (both hard and soft) would look the best. Getting a standard black hard top (thus saving $900!), and painting it a shade of dark tan would look nice.
If I go with a Sport S, I'm thinking Black Forest (again, will have to see how it looks in person first). The black fender flares and top would actually give a hint of contrast that would really bring out the dark green. I would like tan interior, but the Sport S's all black interior would look good in such a vehicle.
