Some more pictures hope you like.
Any current late model JK owners can you comment if these are different then current? Is the difference only obvious when the truck is on?

Look at the difference b/t the red seats much darker in real light. They look great in person as does the anvil as stated before by me.

Looks just like my '13 JKU Sahara with the exception of the silver on the steering wheel "spokes".

no, its def different. i have a 2011 and the fonts, colors, dashes instead of dots, etc are different. the housing of the panel and shape of instruments are the same though. google some pics of the 2011 instrument panel to see.

I have a question on the leather seats guys. I got the 'leather' option when i ordered my 2011, and to my dismay, when i saw it at the dealership, only the center sections of the seats were real leather. the rest is vinyl. ugh. cheap plastic. it suppose it was stupid of me to see the Jeep embossed on the seats in pictures and think that that could be done to leather. its plastic. SO... the red leather pics look like all leather, or at least MOSTLY leather on the seating surface... perhaps some vinyl on the underside near the seat adjustments, etc.

Is there anyway to find out what Auto Shows the 10a is going to show up at?

Short of maybe a Rolls or Bentley or exotics, you will not find seats that are all leather these days. On cars that we mortals can afford, it's always just the seating surfaces. As for embossing, there is no reason it can't be done to leather. It is done all the time.

I sat in them and my friend did as well, we both liked the feel and comfort he drives a BMW and is thinking about ordering a jeep for second vehicle.

i hear you, but over half the 'leather' on the 2011 seats are vinyl. i have an audi and 100% of the seating surface is leather. as for the embossing, yes, you can emboss leather, but it wont turn out like the embossed vinyl. the look and feel is totally different

Didn't inspect it that close, but it all felt the same to me. It didn't seem to be two different materials.

I don't care what Anvil ends up looking like. I want Anvil or I don't want one at all! I don't care if they won't give me my money back, if they don't get me mine in Anvil like I ordered it then I don't want it, period!

The logo on these seats is embroidered like my '09 Daytona judging by the pics, which is a completely different thing from embossing,which is cheaper than embroidery.

Hate to break the news, my friend owns and operates an upholstery shop, and your audi has vinyl panels in the high wear side areas to prvent cracking and splitting in these wrinkle areas. All vehicles including Porsche and Mercedes do this, albeit the vinyl is thick and has a very leather-like feel as opposed to thin vinyl of low price cars and years gone by. As stated above, ultra high end such as Rolls are truly 100% leather. He does numerous repairs for the local dealers on trade-in vehicles and has handled every brand doing bolster repairs on the drivers seat most of the time.

I've been fooled thinking a seat was "all" leather several times until he peeled the cover off and showed me.

It says right on the 10a site that the seats are embroidered and they are heated :

If you order the 6-speen manual with the Max Tow, do you get the 4:10 rear end?

Yeah. And you'd still get it without the max tow. It's standard on manual.

Just wanted to make sure the package didn't screw something up.

I'm not a big fan of the "quicksilver" interior accents. I know Mopar offers replacements in a few colors, but has anyone seen any other aftermarket pieces? (Esp the steering wheel spokes)

Anvil looks different depending on lighting.

I may have to get this for my two boys, age 5 and 3 that are also excited about my new Rubicon! Maybe put both in the driveway one morning.

This is shout out to the omnipotent Pat. I ordered the dual top group with my 10A. The dealer could not tell me if I would receive the 'premium' soft top that comes with the 10A, or the standard soft top usually included in the dual top group.

What do you say Pat, can I expect the premium or standard?

And here I thought the dual top group came with the premium soft top.

Dual top group auto upgrades the standard soft top to premium but since the 10A has premium in the package the dual top group was discounted 400 dollars.

We will get premium top and hard top of you got dual top.
