Any creative ideas on how to get leather saddle seats and the X package?

Would a dealer swap the black leather with another that has saddle for me?

Doubt that would happen.
You could do Katzkins and be happy.

Correct, the planets would have to be perfectly aligned with two buyers each wanting the other person's seats. It could happen but what are the odds, and at what cost?

Maybe someone has more information but the Katskinz color swatches the dealer here had there was no saddle brown color. Lots if shades of tan/brown but nothing close to saddle.
Is there another set of colors or an option to order the factory leather aftermarket?

All right first post, read this entire thread in two days. Awesome information!! Just curious though, is USAA the same deal as the tread lightly discount? It says it's an affiliate on the list. Just curious

Yea, I too would like the saddle color, or even the red color, over black.

However, its more than simply the color. The X pkg includes other things like the silver contrasting stitching on the seats.

I live the saddle color, but is it still the same (soft) leather, or more like what's in a Ford King Ranch package? I don't plan on leather in mine unless I can get the stuff that actually looks better all scratched up.

They have it, its not called Saddle. Tell the Katzkin installer you want it to factory match the saddle leather.

Just placed our order for 2014 JKU

We went with the Crystal Granite, Premium Soft top, 24S, Max Tow, and Black Appearance Group. This will mainly be the wife's ride. I have my 2012 2dr to play with. They tell me roughly 7 weeks for delivery...should be fun

That sounds interesting, have you seen this before or have a picture of this having been done? (obviously having been painted this way)

I had a 1995 Tahoe with the extended fender flares from the factory. the truck was all black and I had the flares painted silver to contrast the vehicle and it looked good. and was a one of a kind in my area anyway.

Some bad news for Canadians hoping to factory order a rubi X

I found out today from my dealer rep that special edition wranglers in Canada will be pre-specced and sent to Canadian dealers

Basically you will be able to get a rubi x but you will not be able to order it right from the factory (Canada only) I am told this is because there are not enough sold in Canada each year to warrant factory order.

This comes as a huge personal disappointment as I am keen to have one built the way I want.

I will be pushing to confirm this from a second source as well.

If this is true this is going to be so stupid. I mean for the 10th Anniversary we were allowed to factory order them... why not the Rubicon X

Because you get to watch hockey regularly. We have to buy a special package and listen to terrible announcers. Seems like a reasonable trade.

Hmmm...

Okay, lets do it another way. Can I get the steel bumpers and hood without the X package?

I ordered a copperhead the same day here in Canada but can not check status as Jeep.ca does not have that option. Can you tell me where your order is noe, last I was told I was at D but that was over a week ago.

Yes - you just need the part numbers. I've seen the numbers for the bumpers somewhere in this thread (I think) and I've posted the numbers for the hood. The Hood is not bad on pricing, figure around 1200-1500 painted and installed, the bumpers don't look as economical, as I remember the parts costs were very high.

Yeah I thought I saw the bumpers at $1500 and $1200

yeah I know - just trying to figure out why they are making vehicles that aren't supposed to be available until 2014 now instead of making the rest of our Jeeps who have already ordered them
