MojoTheJeep I dig the matching beige color they have going on there. Not sure about other colors... either way I'd want a soft top. Not huge on the interior myself, to each his own. Glad I got a 2010.

phottomatt ^ Thanks, I thought they were solid not painted

Be careful when pressure washing....I managed to blow some paint off the front of my front fenders. I find the back ones are all scratched up from peoples' heels getting in and out. I am going to be replacing with the unpainted ones or getting the ones I have bead blasted.

Nothing new the Sahara's have always had this.
ETA: I see it's been discussed
08-19-2010 02:32 PM
aelwero Actually, It looks to me like they are just separating out the sahara a little more than they have been...

I see the same plastic accented steel doors that are in the '10 in one picture, and then the "fluffy" ones in another. I'm also seeing all black bumpers and fenders in some of the pictures.

I think all the hoity fluff stuff we're seeing might be just a sahara thing. We should be thankful they are paint matching the roof and fenders on sahara, so that the non-waving mall crawl crowd is a little easier to identify

Keep in mind guys, if the target audience doesn't expand enough to suit MOPAR, they may wind up giving up on it, and there might not always be someone willing to buy the jeep name... The longer the Jeep Wrangler runs, the less Jeepers buy jeeps. I still have a '71...

Seen the 2011 firebird yet?

JIMBOX Heh Heh, beauty's in the eye !!

I paid 30K for my wrangler, but I wouldn't plunk down 30K for a jeep SUV, just cause it had a "hemi"--

Same goes for the big Dodge trucks, lotsamoney !!

You haven't been out much lately have you? A SRT8 is more in the 40+ range.

Unless you're seeing something that I'm not, you're getting a decent if not good deal at 30k for a loaded unlimited rubicon.
What I'm trying to say is that whether its a jeep or not, a 25-30k vehicle should have a nice interior.
Nice or not doesn't really matter to me, I plan on driving my 2010 till the wheels fall off!

I whole-heartedly agree. 30k is a lot of cash to shell out.
08-19-2010 11:35 AM
JIMBOX Yea, after the "Pentastar" engine, I imagine they'll leave that for awhile, making service additions/subtractions and probably a stock turbo addition--

I don't really care about that, just put in a good 5spd auto and redesign the tranny cooling system !!

But the interior shots seem to be only of the Sahara, which is notorious for being the "upper class" Wrangler. Don't think anyone will be forced with leather or all the little "button" options if they don't want it and get a standard Wrangler. I believe Jeep is showing the most luxury class Wrangler possible in those pics.

I'll wait until I see the inside of a 2011 X or Ruby before I make my complete opinion. I simply don't have enough information at this point. I won't buy one... but I can't completely like or hate what I don't know yet.

I agree... the Wranglers are getting... prissy or something. Look at it this way, the more prissy they get shouldn't the value of the old school Jeeps rise or at least stay pretty steady? Demand for what was, instead of what is?

I already made a personal oath I will never get rid of my 09 for any jeep new wrangler. I want something I can beat up and not feel guilty... I would feel odd if I had a matching top and scratched it... I shouldn't feel anything but proud for scratching my Jeep. I like that fact that washing my jeep consists of driving through a flood puddle or creek. Or simply shooting it with a hose ha ha. That is just me though.

gdub Not going to start a bash fest - but here's just some of the differences I see in just a cursory review of the interior shots...

- Full covered doors - take a look at the beige/black combo
- Brushed aluminum trim
- Curved Door pulls - look like something from a caravan
- Leather - that will smell great when it gets soaked by a nice downpour (think leather shoes)
- Chrome shift knobs
- Steering wheel volume / cruise control (I like the cruise I have on the side - as for volume control - when in a grip of death on a steep incline - don't think I want to be turning the radio up full blast)
- What looks to be "car/van like" door lock / handles - at least the current actually look somewhat rugged

I realize the "layout" is similiar, but all the bling bling is like the interior won a $500 shopping spree at AutoZone or something (or should that be $50 as it looks sort of cheap).

Well you are complaining about something that more than likely has already been posted on this forum, a few years ago. Everyone is already over it... which you would know because every time a person pops in here saying "I just bought a new Sahara!" Everyone gives the dude/dudette congrats.

And the inside is not to different from the 2010 models from what I can see. Just saying. The top on the Sahara is the only thing I really find all that different... aside from the mentioned wheels.

From the pics, it seems to me that that matching hard top seems to be on the Sahara model only. The matching on them in previous models is why I didn't get one before. I hate matching colors. Looks to... plain.

QtMcShorty Yes, saw this on FB as well this morning!
The matching hardtop thing reminds me of how the FJ Cruisers ALL had the black tops at first and then they came out with the matching top....in that same yellowish-beige.....ah well....Jeep is just trying to keep up with the times.....
08-19-2010 10:56 AM
haden1128 Thankfully, the color match hard top is only intended for the Sahara. Which, no offense anyone, the Sahara is supposed to be "the street" Jeep. --Painted flares, 18in. wheels...

larry53 OK, I'll be the first odd man out here. I think they look GREAT!! Especially the interior I do like the black fenders better then the painted ones, but that seems to be an option.

I happily own a 09 Unlimited silver X with a sexy black top. :P

scottwmckenna I saw the post this morning on facebook as well. I must say the interior, I can live with, it looks classy, but still pretty cool. However, I can't stand the matching color tops, it reminds me of those ugly mercedes suv's that are out. I don't like it at all!
