Arctic "Yeti" - Annoying, Cool, or Acceptable

For those who have seen an arctic JKU, what are your thoughts on the yeti looking logo on the dashboard? Do you think it will become annoying over time? I saw one on the flesh and while my kids loved it, I can't decide what I would think of it a year or so after owning the Jeep. What do you think?

Out of curiosity, if you got sick of them, could you change them for something plane?

I just wish someone would get tired of the logo leather seats and want to give them away

Yeah, I dig it. But it's really cool at night, when the eyes glow in the dark!

I like it, that being said I own one. I do not even notice it that much. I like the "Yeti" package i don't know how limited it will be or anything but...

I am not sure about replacing them, I would assume it is the same gauges as a non Arctic edition so any 2012 guage should work...???

I almost got one in the winter chill. I liked it, except for the foot print decals. Those would have to come off.

That sheit is sweet. If my dealer ended up with one, i'm pretty sure i'd drive away in it.

Also, it would be cooler if it was this yeti.

Agreed. I had the dealer take off the yeti footprints.

Love the Winter Chill color...not a huge fan of the Yeti. However.....if the price was low enough....I would consider one. I've found an Arcitc Edition advertised at over 14% below MSRP. I thought about it....but it didn't have Limited Slip...

Winter chill color is awesome. Wish I could order it in a Rubicon, without all the other crap.

Arctic logos and Winter Chill make a great combo. We love ours (hers). The red eyes on the dash at night are COOL without being a distraction.

I can already see some crooked dealer lots selling fake Arctic editions like they do with the Rubicons

It's like a lot of Jeep stuff: Not for me, but I appreciate it from afar and it seems fun and cool for those into it.

Oh yeah. This is the Yeti most of us grew up on. The coolest one yet. Add Yukon Cornelius and I'm sold.

Mine was $35k after tax (though I bought a paint/interior sealant and an extended warrantee as well.)

Hello everybody, I'm new to jeep and picking up my Arctic tomorrow. I personally can not stand the yeti branding. First step is having dealership remove those silly foot print stickers. The dash cluster blue is nice but there is that cartoon illustration again, perhaps a black vinyl sticker will cover it up ok. The kicker and what bugs me the most is the huge logo embedded on both front seats. Any ideas for an easy cover up on those besides seat covers? If I do seat covers what's good?

Great looking jeep and concept that could be more generic without video game logos and what not. The branding was just bad execution IMO and without it I feel it's perfect package.

No offense, but this makes little sense to me. Why are you picking up an Arctic if you don't like the Arctic features? I understand taking off the footprints, I actually did that myself. But if you don't like the yeti on the speedo, you don't like the yeti badging, and you don't like the yeti badges on the seats, why are you paying for the Arctic package?

It seems to me that you could order a Sahara and add the mods that you do like on the Arctic; probably for a lot cheaper.

Honestly, I'm just curious. Why get the Arctic if you, well, don't like the Arctic?

Hehe, I figured I'd get that question. I tried to do all the same options from a base Sahara but they don't offer the upgrades like mopar to get this look. Everything about the look as mentioned is perfect even the interior white accents. The exterior is incredible. I could just do without logos is all.
