It's your Jeep, pick what color you like and don't worry about what everyone else thinks. That's what modifying or customizing is all about, doing with you like. Me personally, I would go something different like maybe orange or blue. I see a lot of Red/Black combos. But then again, that is what I would do. Do what makes you happy, it's your money!!

I planned to do the same thing when I bought mine.. was going to add the Katzkins. They have some really cool combinations. In the end, I just stayed with cloth and have been happy with it. On the other hand...

How about black, with black mesh insert and red under the mesh? I saw a Crush, with this seat, except the orange under the mesh. It was SHARP!
Bought a Sport, bolted together a Rubicon. Wasn't planned, just happened. I guess it's a Jeep thing.

Red, tan or black will look good.

Not sure I would ever get leather seats in a convertible (especially a wrangler!)! Leather will crack very quick if it is exposed to water much. Also, very hot in the direct sun. I would maybe think this one through a bit more if it were me.
Good luck.
Btw, red does look pretty, but I would opt for red covers on cloth!

I was fortunate enough to get a 2012 on the lot that had the Katzkin leather already in it since it was a factory option that year. Absolutely love it.

Just make sure to condition it often. It sucks up the conditioner like nobody's business and will look faded when it's "thirsty".

Those look like the Tabaco fields in Windsor. Are you close?

The color combo is nice.
