White, Silver and Blue.

This one is not an Arctic. Forgive me but I don't know the exact terminology for each item but here is my run through - Bogus Tires, Wheels (could have been painted), no decals of footprints (could have been taken off), no squatch on the speedometer, interior trim is not white/orange stitching, no slush mats, no hood decal, no gas cap, no guards on rear lights, front bumper is a sahara bumper, not an arctic. I'm sure I missed some things.

It doesn't say anything about being an Arctic Model in the body of the listing so hopefully they made a typo or just trying to get hits to sell it. (EDIT - Actually it does say it when listing the model..etc, my bad).

LOL, even with all your mods, I'm sure there's something on there that alludes to it being an Arctic...this other one is clearly not.

So what material makes up the non-cloth portions of the Arctic seats?

Is it leather or some sort of vinyl?

It's vinyl and has a rip-stop texture to it.

I haven't noticed any scuffing on mine. Seems to be holding up fine to my dogs for the last 8 months.

I've got the part numbers for the bumper appliques for a white Altitude and am considering doing it. They're sure proud of those parts!

Hi all,
New Arctic owner here. Traded in my 2007 Saab 9-3 Aero for it. I loved my Saab, but with their bankruptcy I was tired of worrying about parts availability. When looking at a replacement car, I knew nothing under $35k would compare (at least in my mind) and I'd constantly be comparing it to the Saab. I've always wanted a Wrangler and I figured there'd be absolutely no comparisons between the two.
I've had the Jeep a couple of weeks. Only had the top and doors off once, but it was a blast. I'll miss the Saab, but I really have no regrets in getting rid of it. So here it is, after my first mod....what do you think?

I like the lettering. I have been thinking about doing the same thing for a couple weeks now. Where did you end up getting yours?

Oh, and welcome to the club

Nice.

I love my white, but given the choice I would have probably went with silver.

i put my hardtop back on even tho its only october. ive noticed spiders have been hanging inside my jeep since its getting colder at night.

i like my hardtop. when i get tired of one look, i can rotate from hardtop to trektop NX to NX with windjamer/duster.

for some odd reason the hard top looks better with ace rock rails and a 2.5 lift.

Thanks! The letters are from pixel decals. $20 shipped. I got flat black to match the big hood decal. The look is exactly what I had in mind. I'm very happy with it.

I figured you went with pixel decals. Don is awesome. Does a very good job. I really like the lettering. My only hold up is I cannot decide on color. On my Winter Chill, I like black, reflective black, metallic silver and brushed silver. Wish I had a sample of each to compare.

Camouflage netting for Arctic Winter Chill

Hi.... I have this idea to decorate my Arctic Jeep Wrangler with camouflage netting for Halloween and then use it again next summer when I remove my hardtop. I have the Winter Chill Pearl color and want the camouflage in the blue/grey/black color combination.... saw it once on someone's open jeep in the desert...Does anyone know where I can get the netting? Thanks
