I would have loved a body colored dash panel at maybe a small additional cost, but not at the ridiculous price the aftermarket offerings are currently at.
That’s the thing. Everyone wants cool stuff. But only some are willing or able to pay what it costs, right? Otherwise they’d only build loaded Rubicons.

Thought I already posted, but I'd love to see an option to have them painted any wrangler color, or at least body color like the top and fenders.

I think that was in the Gladiator launch edition, so eventually you might find a part number for it.
Really? I had no idea. Thank you, I'll keep an eye out for this.

From the poll:

“...would you like the option to...” no further reading necessary; voted Yes. Options are always good.

The real question is, at what price?

Doesn’t really matter to me either way, I’d just go with whatever is cheapest.
I'm really just focused on the red Rubicon dash on a Mojito wrangler. In that case, I don't think they should charge anything to choose whether you want the red or silver. You would think that choosing red would be more expensive, yet on a Mojito Rubicon, they choose silver for you and charge you as if you still have the red. Obviously, it's just a piece of plastic on the dash but after paying $50,000+ for a Rubicon won't be too excited to pay another $300 for the red dash it should've come with in the first place...I don't want a Sport dash.

We can add Bikini to the list of colors that don't get the red dash.

It looked like this
That's perfect. Exactly what I want. I had been considering various ways to convert white thread to red, and now I don't have to. Hopefully Jeep made the Gladiator dash pieces exactly the same in size and attachment method as the Wrangler's.

Not sure if it’s that way in all Gladiator Rubicons, but the Launch edition is supposed to have it. You might be able to figure that out from the Jeep website.

Freedom of choice is always good, but sometimes the designers actually know what they’re doing. The red stitching is an accent, but the dash is mostly what you see from the front seats. I think the big red dash on green would be too much clash. Besides, I have the silver dash, and it’s actually nicer in person than it looks in pics. Sort of a pearl satin silver, when the roof is on anyway. I like it way more than I thought I would.

My bikini Rubicon came from factory with the red dash. From what I can find online this was a factory mistake so I think it's kind of cool that it slipped past with it.

There’s no such thing as too much red.

I'm pretty sure I read that beginning with the 2020 Rubicon models all would have the red dash.

Our Hella Yella has the red dash. I would have ordered without it if I could have. However, it didn't take but a few days to get over that, and today I would order the red dash if I had to. It grew on us.
So you have a condiment edition:like:
