Hey all,
I'm working on asthetically turning a Black Sport into an Arctic edition. I'm planning on repainting the black body to a Blue metalic or pearl color. I'd also really like to get the Arctic Edition dash gauges (with the yeti peering out) to replace her current stock gauges. I've done quite a bit of research so far on this, and read other posts but I still have not found anyone who has actually done this yet. I've called a few local dealerships but they have described that I would need a VIN and I would need to return the old broken gages to get a set of new gages. Does anyone know where I would be able to find or order those without needing to do a return? Or does anyone have a set that they are willing to part with? I know this is a long shot but I figure it's worth a try. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Thanks Mugenfred. It would be nice to find a way to not have to spend the extra $500. I wonder if there is anyway to get around that. I was hoping that now that the Arctic edition is no longer for sale new that I would be able to find the gages somewhere.

I think the seats look better without the headrest. I took the seats apart and removed the complete mechanism.

Scored a used Arctic w/ 18,500 miles on it in rural AR. Bright Silver 2 door. Has anybody gotten the final numbers by color and # of 2 vs. 4 door? Loving every minute and think we are extremely blessed!

Welcome to the club! I belive final production numbers were around 1200 pretty evenly split between 2 and 4 door, but I don't think we've seen a breakdown by color.

WTC...Chrysler has never given me a breakdown other then earlier numbers I posted. I wanted a break down of Canada vs. US and by color, 2dr v. 4dr, but they apparently don't feel compelled to release what they consider "proprietary" information.

My pic rotated sideways. The tear is on the side seam near the top of the bottom seat where the boltster meets the front. I just know what Chrysler will say, I poked it with something, yaddi, yaddi, yaddi...

Mine was replaced under warranty. Started peeling apart at around 3,000 miles. I even posted a photo somewhere on this forum.
