Picked up my Granite Metallic Rubicon last Friday and must say I am in love! It is more than I imagined and here it is with new 17x9 Fuel Hostage wheels and 35/12.50R17 BFG KO2 AT tires! Love this setup! Glad to be part of this club!
Amazing! Great pics. Love the matching look on the top and fenders. I'm ordering a very similar setup hopefully tomorrow!

Hey everyone! I just ordered my Sahara the other day and I’m stoked! The only thing I have been thinking about for my build is as to whether or not I should have gotten the body color top as opposed to the black top. Do you guys think it’s worth the upgrade and is it better aesthetically? The granite color looks pretty great in both! Just looking for some opinions!

I like the black top in pictures (config/online), but always like the painted top/fenders when I see them in person. I also got the dual top, so I can switch to the black soft top part of the year!

Really a personal decision, good luck!

Awesome looking Jeep. Could you post a picture looking out the windshield? I would like to see how the hood vents look on a Rubicon with the granite color.

IMHO having asked myself this same question quite a bit. I feel the black top and fenders look far better with colors that offer contrast, I. E. white, red, blue, yellow, etc. With you see granite with black top, it seems unfinished, like they forgot to paint it, because there is very little contrast offered from the grey to the black. Granite has a few different looks, no sun =a dark grey look, sunlight =a brilliant metallic shifting grey color. Just My 2¢

@Dynomite1371 I disagree. First I want to say this is personal preference and we can agree to disagree. I prefer the black top and black fenders, because it is a more "classic" wrangler look. I like the subtle differences with the black and granite. An additional bonus if you go off roading, you will find the black top is easier to touch up and the plastic fenders won't show the rash as much.
