My dealer got their first JLU delivered today. It's a billet silver Sahara which I wanted to see in person since I ordered a 2dr JLR in billet silver last week without ever seeing the color on a vehicle. I like it, but I noted the front fenders were painted and the rear fenders were black. Is that an ordering option I missed? It's not that I'd like to change to that, since I think it looks weird. I'm just curious. I also noted it is equipped with side steps. Is that standard equipment on JL's since its not an option in the order guide for JLR's. Again, I'm actually not actually interested in it as I seen them being ripped off in rock crawling. Just curious if that's how it will be configured.

The Fenders seem like a factory screw up to me.
And side rails/steps are standard on the Sahara yes ;)

The non-matching fenders are new to me, but all Saharas have side steps and are supposed to have body-colored fenders.

Are the side steps just on the Saharas or on the Rubicons as well?

I would love this fender option as I am worried that the rear fender will get chipped up with 35's or 37's witch ever I chose to run.

What dealer and location was this at? Any Picture?

It's Eastern Chrysler in Winnipeg, Canada. I'll be going by there again tomorrow and will try to get a picture.

I noticed on mine that they put 2 clear strips over the face of the rear fender, right on the face of it. Like a 3m clear protector.
