I apologize in advance - Black or Billet?

I've finally decided on a JKU Sport S package (manual) w/upgraded heated leather seats (black). I've just spent an hour at the dealer this morning going over the rest of the specs. I just can't decide on the color: Black or Billet. Thoughts?

Once again thanks for your help.

I ordered Billet because it is much easier to keep looking good than black. If you're doing any wheeling you're probably going to get black scratched up pretty easily. My 87 GN is black and it is a complete PITA to keep looking good.

I have a bkack XTerra now and Adrian's right, black is tough to keep looking good. But, when it looks good, it looks awesome. I am planning to go Billet myself.

I was very torn when I ordered mine, the billet is a sharp color and the two tone black billet is sexy as heck. I ended doing black because I wanted the red interior on the 10A and dint like it w the billet... Had the same issue with the regular rubi bc I wanted the tan interior... Both will look great regardless!

Oh one thing, if you order a black one, consider the color match top... The flat black with a black jeep almost clashes... It's just odd IMO.
