2012 Black Leather?
 
Is it confirmed that black leather will be an option in addition to the tan? If so, does anyone have some spy pics??

Comac90 09-03-2011 01:12 PM

No, it's not a standard option. You'll have to do Katzkins (what I did :thumb:) or you'll have to order a MW3 edition in October. :D

$1200 +/- will get you aftermarket Katzkins installed through the dealer :p

My local Jeep dealer has to send the Jeep 60 miles away to have Katzkins installed. That's 120+ miles put on it before I get to take delivery.

Vyper340 09-03-2011 05:36 PM

Was referring to factory option only (there's scuttlebutt about it circulating). I know about Katzskins and that is a fine option. Just curious about factory. Tks

As the post above states Pat from Fields Jeep has advised that as of 8/31 you can order black leather. No other details that i have seen.

Black leather became an orderable factory option on 8/29

Vyper340 09-03-2011 05:48 PM

Pat - you are THE man!!! Now if the gods in Jeep heaven would only be so kind as to release pics the JK world would be complete.

Yeah but it looks great and makes cleaning husky dog hair out a breeze with a leaf blower :dance:

Looked at my 1st 2012 today.
The young sales guy was not informed about anything except the 3.6L and 5 speed. Come on dealers, hire me to educate your sales staff.
That is what I do for a living, just not Jeeps.
I will do it for 4% under invoice!:thumb:

KimKman 09-03-2011 07:04 PM

Just ordered 2012 Rubi with Black Leather today 9/3/2011 :)
Sold my 2004 Rubi at a great price. They do retain a lot of value.

With the black leather it gets rid of all the brown plastic on the doors and dash, right?

I never really minded the brown leather, but it always looked off to me to have half the interior brown and half black.

Yes according to Pat in another thread on this forum today the black leather comes with the black interior not the black /saddle interior :thumb:

Thanks, Pat! I stand corrected ... I shoulda said "when I ordered on 7/7...." :thumb:

jku-er 09-05-2011 05:25 PM

I just got word from dealer that:

AL IS LEATHER TRIMMED BUCKET SEATS
PL IS LEATHER TRIMMED SEATS

BUCKET SEATS ARE NOT AN OPTION

X9 IS THE CODE FOR BLACK
XV IS THE CODE FOR BLACK/DARK SADDLE

Not sure why bucket seats are not an option. Any ideas Pat?

jku-er 09-06-2011 09:29 AM

I just noticed that my order has PL and not AL for the leather option. Now the dealer tells me that ALX9 can't be ordered for my JKU Sahara AND PL cannot be combined with X9. So I'm sol with black leather. bummer.

Anyone else run into this?

Pat, can you help explain what this means? Thanks!

I too am looking for more information on the "Black Leather". Going with military sales and they don't seem to know anything about it. :confused: Baby poo leather won't go good with Crush.

I'd prefer to call it Gerber Baby food leather, hates to be sittin on Baby poo all the time :D

I like the color of the brown leather.
Now the texture? I'm not so sure about. The dealer I went to didn't have anymore 11 or 12 Wranglers with leather, so I could not sit inside one....but the little patch of sample leather they had was pretty grainy. Hopefully it is a very rugged leather. I'm trying to find out more about McKinley Leather and exactly "how much" real leather we are talking about.

Vyper340 09-12-2011 05:07 PM

Someone has to have seen one or is going to see one soon. It's been in production for two weeks... Would like to see it

I built one here and attached it as a pdf. You can order black leather.

Vyper340 09-12-2011 08:16 PM

Cannot wait to see how the black leather looks (is it all black or does it have some contrast stitching or something "different").

Pat, what is the color coded restriction on the Sahara?

Also, I have read here on the forum that heated seats came with the leather. Your build sheet shows leather ($900) and heated seats ($250).

Can you clear that up please?

panthermark 09-13-2011 09:59 AM

^Just my guess...
The black leather option may not come with heated seats.

Here is a window sticker from a 2012 Sahara with leather. It clearly states heated seats are part of it. Maybe it is the "bucket" stuff... Who knows...
Something else Jeep needs to clear up.
