Cool...so the Sahara seats say Sahara. The Rubi seats say Rubicon...that just leaves the Sport seats....what do they say...what do they say?

While I am a little bit disappointed that the Rubi wheels aren't black, I feel that the shapes and lines on these wheels look much better in the actual pictures. I like these new Rubi wheels a lot! Jeep is batting .500 on new wheels for 2013...

Lawdy, based on pics in post #3357 I suddenly have an opinion on wheels. "Wheels," people! I've gone from criteria of "4-doors, white, and cheap" to having an opinion on wheels. (In summary: I like the Rubi wheels and wish they were standard on the Sahara.)

Thanks, don't know if u can see in the picture but you'll always know what these wheels came off of. If u look close there's a tiny jeep picture on the rims too. Kinda cool, I thought.

I wonder if the leather seats will say Rubicon or Sahara or just Jeep?

Luckily my dealer received my confirmation number sometime and kept it. Glad I waited for a 13!!
Congrats on the new ride!

What kind of offers were you getting from Chrysler, and was this before, or after you ordered?

I'm close to you in St. Louie, will be ordering soon.





ETA: And are the tires black, or gray (gunmetal powder coat?)? Hard to tell from the pics.

These wheels are both good and bad news...

Good news if you want to buy 2013 Sahara take-offs. I have a feeling the Craigslist will be flooded with them. But hopefully, they look better in person.

Bad news if you were hoping to buy 2013 Rubi take-offs. I'm betting those wheels look SICK on a Billet or Anvil Wrangler.

The "Sahara" on the cloth seat looks printed on seat. The "Rubicon" on the cloth seat looks embroidered.....IMO. The "Sahara" looks orangy to me. This interior would look sweet in a Crush or Dozer JK/JKU. Now to see the Sport seat......prolly has nothing printed or stitched. Anyone have pics of the new fancy interior lighting? My guess is it might be LED. Thanks for all the pictures and information all you lucky ducks delivering on your 13s.

I'm hoping/thinking that is just the photo. It would be silly on Jeep's part to print a logo on a seat. It would be worn off in about a month...and Jeep would be replacing seat after seat under warranty.

Given that the logo looks light and orange....it could just be the camera......or the photographer........and in that case, the inner part of the Sahara wheels might look darker (and better) in real life.

So I just got off the phone with my Autonation Direct guy and he has told me that the two colors I wanted were not looking good. I don't get the feeling he is saying this to get me to purchase a jeep NOW, nothing like that has even been discussed.

1) Chrysler Corporate says Rock Lobster is on hold "Indefinitely"
2) Commando will only be available for the Call of Duty model

I hope someone in here has better news for me on these colors than that!

Commando order date

Can anyone confirm that the commando color can be ordered Aug 7th. I realize the first post states Sept 4th but I thought I read that you can order early.
Thanks
