Any idea why the leather is not available?

Interesting... I saw on another thread a Black Rubicon w/Katzkin seats took ~12 weeks from order to delivery. I hope there isn't a production issue; my order has Katzkin leather and remains in D status while subsequent orders have moved to D1.

You can still order with cloth seats and add Katzkin through the dealer after your Jeep gets shipped. It might be a bit more expensive, but you have more customization options when you get the Katzkin leather installed through the dealer instead of getting Chrysler to install it at the factory.

X2,


the only reason I post this type of info is for those that are close to ordering. I just want to keep everyone up to date.

For me anyway, getting Katzkin installed aftermarket is cheaper. I plan on getting full leather installed and it will run me about $980 here in VA (and I think some believe it could be cheaper). The factory option was more than that.

Yep, we just ordered last weekend and Katzkin option was closed as of 2/28 for 'factory' installation. You can still order thru Mopar.

Yep - I'd have to pull my purchase order, but I paid something like $920 with a couple of perforated panels last summer.

My Katzkin equipped truck was completed and shipped on Saturday. Guess I got one of the last ones with factory Katzkins.

You can get Katzkin aftermarket with heated seats and/or gel inserts too. Plus your choice of any color available in the Katzkin catalog, instead of the limited selection from Jeep.
