I'm planning on black leather. Even if you order saddle there will still be a lot of black in and on the vehicle. I'd rather limit it to one consistent accent than two.

My own time in the big green machine tended to use black accents with OD green, so I'm sure that's influencing my perspective.

I was set on saddle to make it a little cooler but I am also thinking all black may look better with Commando. Guess I have about 16 hours to make up my mind...

I'm leaning towards saddle because it will make a it bit cooler and less cave like. But because I'm doing cloth, and the 2013 saddle seats are the same as the 2013 black seats (instead of being different in the middle like the 2012's), I may now a bit torn.....

Honestly, i would only do the saddle leather. The cloth is gray, and it doesn't seem to match the rest of the tan. That said... I don't like those gray seats with the black interior. The seats pretty much seal leather for me.

I'm going Sport S....so leather is not an option. But I do agree the saddle leather looks the best....and and "all" saddle seats really brighten the interior.

Plus...I'm a bit bummed. If I would have known that the cloth saddle seats were all grey (except for the stitching) back in June...I could have ordered a White or Dozer 2012 with black interior and I would have had it by now....so I'm kinda forcing myself to order saddle to help justify the wait for Commando (or maybe Billet)

I'll sleep on it tonight.

Nope....factory leather is only available in the Sahara and Rubi. I stress the word factory because sometime in December of 2011, a Katzkin leather was available from the factory on the 2012 Sport and Sport S's (as well as Saharas and Rubis). It was different than the standard factory leather, but it did come from the factory....and it only came in black.

The Katzkin option was pulled for 2013 (so far).

I got an email from Ryan @ Fields Chrysler in Sanford over the weekend telling me that they're ordering my JKUR Wednesday. Not sure why they're waiting until Wednesday, but good to know it's now open and my order will go in on day 2.

Tell him Pat said order it ASAP as I heard a rumor and we don't want to take any chances.

Is it Ryan or Brian?

Brian passed me off to work with Ryan. I'm hoping he isn't off today and tomorrow, thus his mention of ordering on Wednesday. I'll email him right now in hopes of him getting it in the morning. Thanks a ton for the heads up Mr. Pat.

My order is officially IN!!

Brian at Fields Auto in Sanford is the man. He was there before opening hours and had my order in. Thanks so much to those guys for making this easier. Now for the dreaded 2 month wait until delivery.

JKUR
Auto Trans
4.10 Rear Axle
Auto Temp Control
Dark Saddle Cloth

I went pretty basic because most stuff will be changed out pretty quickly. Head unit and speakers will be replaced. I'll get an integrated hitch receiver with an ACE rear bumper/carrier so that takes care of the tow package.

kramer2k mine just went in too. YEH US!!!!!

I was able to get 2% under invoice using the TL Control Number. Their numbers matched my numbers to the penny (plus $99 doc fee). I went through a good number of dealers before finding someone that knew what was going on.

If you are close to Columbia, Missouri, I would recommend giving Fletcher Auto Group a go. Ask for Drew Carle (Sales Manager). He made everything as easy as could be. I was very close to making the 8 hour trip to see Pat before I gave them a shout.

2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
Commando Greeen/Dark Saddle Interior
4.10/Connectivity/Dual Top/Remote Start/Auto
$36,021 plus $99 doc fee

No trade in for me. But there should be no need to worry with that at this juncture. Setting up an order is just that, configuring your build and settle on the doc fees they normally charge.

And I did all my ordering and communicating remotely. I'm 2 hours from Sanford, FL, where I'll be picking mine up. I worked with Brian and Ryan over emails and telephone. There's no need to go to the dealership. I paid my deposit via an email link they sent me and used my CC.

By the looks of it we may have photos of Commando green from the new owners before Jeep provides any. Bless you brave souls who are buying without actually seeing it first.
