Hmmm more mall crawler than 18in Polished Aluminum wheels? Its still TRAIL RATED, and has black simulated headlocks.

Must be the lighting in the photos, because it looked like a different colored red.

I do like the blacked out trim and bumper inserts.

LOL, not so much anymore, but back in the early 90's (in high school) I was. Saw the Dead live 6 times before Jerry died. Named my 91 YJ Cosmic Charlie, hence my screen name. You?

Barrie The snipping back and forth ends NOW, or the thread does and PM's will be forthcoming. Okay? Thanks.
04-26-2012 04:44 PM
cmg427 Yup, $300 for black wheels and a different interior. So how much am I going to pay for stickers again? I for one like special editions and cant understand why all the hate from the "hardcore jeepers"
04-26-2012 04:26 PM
snikt Seems like a good deal to me if you were already going to buy a Sahara with body color top and leather seats?
04-26-2012 04:20 PM
jmcd Ah, another "Theme Jeep" for somebody to pay too much money for some stickers and some stitching in the headrest.

You have to look really close at the hood sticker. I didn't see it until Con Artist pointed it out. There are subtle waves of black and slightly less black. I think that's why he wants to see a better picture of it.

But I'm going to take off that hood sticker, i really like the interior and was gonna black out my Jeep anyway.

EDIT:
Look at the interior it reminds me of the BatMobile.

Yeah I saw that one but I'm looking for a close-up so I can see what's actually printed on that graphic. It looks like just a bunch of "crinkly" lines.

pat@fieldsauto.com Jeep® Introduces New Limited-edition Wrangler Unlimited Altitude
2012 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition to arrive in Jeep showrooms next month
Altitude model is newest special-edition Wrangler created in response to Jeep enthusiasts looking for factory-customized vehicles
New Wrangler Unlimited Altitude follows last month’s introduction of Grand Cherokee, Compass and Patriot Altitude models
All 2012 Jeep Wrangler models powered by 3.6-liter V-6 engine producing 285 horsepower and up to 21 miles per gallon
Jeep Wrangler sales up 30 percent in 2012
Auburn Hills, Mich. , Apr 23, 2012 - On the heels of the popular Jeep® Wrangler Call of Duty: MW3 and Arctic models – and in response to Wrangler enthusiasts’ continued desire for limited-edition vehicles – Jeep is introducing its new, 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition. The Wrangler Unlimited Altitude is the latest Altitude model in the Jeep lineup, following the introduction of the Grand Cherokee, Compass and Patriot Altitude models last month.

Based on the 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara model, the Altitude edition offers Jeep enthusiasts a Wrangler with a unique appearance that includes a body-color hardtop combined with a variety of black-gloss exterior appointments, and a distinctive black-and-red interior theme.

“With sales up more than 30 percent year over year, Jeep Wrangler continues to show the special place it has in the hearts and minds of the American public,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “One of the many things Jeep enthusiasts love is the series of limited-volume, special-edition Wrangler models we produce. The new Wrangler Unlimited Altitude builds on the previous models and delivers consumers yet another fun and distinctive Jeep vehicle straight from the factory.

“With a production run of only 4,500 units, we expect the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude to sell out very quickly,” Manley added.

Jeep Wrangler sales were up 43 percent in March 2012 versus March 2011, and are up 30 percent for the year (through March). The new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition arrives in Jeep showrooms next month.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude
The new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition includes a body-color hardtop with matching painted center sections on the front and rear bumpers. Unique eighteen-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels with black-painted spokes and polished wheel rings combine to give the Altitude model a one-of-a-kind appearance.

Wrangler Unlimited Altitude’s exterior appointments are completed with the inclusion of a Mopar® black fuel fill door, a matte black “Jeep” grille badge and a black tone-on-tone hood graphic.

A black-and-red theme is found inside the new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude. Specifically, red accent stitching adorns black leather seats, door panels, center arm rest, floor mats and steering wheel. Vent rings, steering-wheel spokes, door pulls and passenger-side dashboard grab handle and berber floor mats all appear in black, to provide the contrasting and one-of-a-kind interior.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude models are available in Deep Cherry Red, Black, Bright White and Bright Silver Metallic, and will be available at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $33,740.

2012 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited
Jeep Wrangler – the most capable and recognized vehicle in the world – is even more capable both on- and off-road for 2012, courtesy of an all-new, more fuel efficient and more powerful 3.6-liter V-6 engine, and a new automatic transmission – both of which it shares with the award-winning Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Chrysler Group’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine – winner of the prestigious Ward’s 10 Best Engines award – delivers 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, while delivering up to 21 miles per gallon highway in the 2012 Jeep Wrangler. The improvement, when compared to the previous 3.8-liter V-6 engine, is 40 percent in horsepower and 10 percent in torque.

2012 Jeep Wrangler interior highlights include a recently redesigned instrument panel and storage areas with improved ergonomics and upgraded materials. A lockable console and upgraded door armrest areas boast comfortable touch points, while a redesigned center stack is easier to reach and operate. Heated, power mirrors are available, and drivers and passengers enjoy enhanced visibility courtesy of large rear windows.
