One of hardest part of the Jeep selection was the color and once I made my mind finally into the granite crystal (with the big influence being the wife’s opinion...), it was sold. Once u made ur mind on the trim side to go for the sport S and avoid the extra damage to ur pocket, that devilish part in me pushes towards the look, performance, extras...etc of the Sahara...Jeep selection is a very special case with the colors and trims playing a lot with the mind...fortunately, u can’t go wrong with anyEither way you'll have a cool Jeep
My 2 cents would be to go for the Red Sahara. I'm partial to red though. Sports are awesome because you have great Jeep and somewhat of a blank canvas. With that said, you get a lot of nice features as you move up the range (you're paying for it...) and that Sahara seems well equipped.
Black is a great color, but red is fun and honestly, dirty or clean looks good. It may be a little cooler given the heat as well.
I'm sure you've heard this...go with what your gut is telling you; you win either way.
well, I haven't experienced leather seats in that kind of heat, every vehicle I drove over there had cloth, who knows. I haven't noticed a huge difference in the support of the cloth vs leather either.Yep, I understand that. But, a terry cloth towel isn't any hotter than the stock cloth seats in those conditions. Support is more important to me than seat temperature.
Unfortunately, no more for the granite option. Just left over with two exact cars I’m comparing between for the sake of the special price (discounted 7,000 usd). The LED lights, upgraded sound system, easy access; no key needed) are the main extras in the Sahara that are itching me in specificI may have missed it; did you decide already on your Jeep?
Granite is really an amazing color and looks good with just about any wheels and other accessories. It's very sharp. It's what I originally thought I'd get. My wife actually was the one how suggested red since it was the color of my first Jeep and that if I going through another mid-life crisis, may has well make sure folks know.
I don't have a Sahara, but some of the options it comes with are really nice. You'll end up modifying and upgrading and adding and, and...but that is part of the fun. Making it your own in a time when most vehicles are the same as one another.
The added extras on the Sahara are well worth the additional money, especially at the good discount you are getting.Unfortunately, no more for the granite option.

Drove the Sahara and Rubicon, didn’t drive a Sport, any felt difference?This would be a really tough choice for me, I like Black vehicles and I like the Sahara trim. I had a black JK Sahara, and now have a black JLU Sahara (4 doors works better for me with getting the kids in and out).
Have you driven them both. Did one feel better than the other?
I tried Sport S and Sahara, and I just felt better suited to the Sahara. But with the Sport being black.....
It’s a tough call, as other have said, they are both great, and the extra 7,000 for a loaded Sahara seems like a deal.
Sorry that I’ve not been helpful
