I agree. I think that should be the standard interior on a Sahara.
The door and center armrests with extra padding and the matching stitching are standard. So is the stitching on top of the dashboard, even with the cloth seats.

I ordered my 2020 exactly the way I wanted it, and ended up with a Sahara. With what I wanted; 3.6 eTorque, Sky one-touch, nicer interior (stitching on doors, dash, console) and the 'leather' panels on the face of the dash, select-trac, better suspension & brakes, etc. - it was the only way to go.

To be honest, if I could have bought a Rubicon without the lockers & disco sway bar, that's what I would have gotten - I guess Moab but with the Rubi wheels/tires instead of m/t (Moab wasn't available anymore when I ordered). For the type of trails/beaches/water crossing/boat launches I do, the Wrangler is more than capable without those bits, and I didn't want the added complexity.

If I was buying a 2021 based on the new order guide, I would still land on the Sahara for the better brakes, suspension & interior ... really like the upgraded interior, contrasting stitching, and the dash insert. Now that Select trac is available on the Rubi, that would almost sway me, but now that I see how I use my Jeep I am more than convinced I would never need/use the lockers and disco sway bar - so still Sahara.

Rubi wheels/tires (done), and debadged Rubi vented hood (planned) + Sahara = I have my dream Wrangler.

A La Carte ordering is what " we" wanted, and they listened..
A Sport S, with AWD, and One Touch Sky Top, that only, perfect, for me. That's the point, individual choice..
I wish it was completely a la carte across all trims. I have a JLU Rubicon with the manual & very few other options....I'd have given anything to have manual windows & locks.

U don’t have everything has and the painted fenders and roof are reason enough to buy the Sahara the black fenders and roof look cheap.
I look at it this way. It’s a helluva lot easier to fix up a busted plastic fender than a painted one. My Jeep goes off road.

The Sahara is hands down the nicest inside jus like rubi is hands down better underneath but most people will never use what’s underneath but you will use the inside every time. Just buy Sahara and mod to your taste.

Advanced Safety Group is available on the Sport.

Wishing your wife the best in her recovery.
The advanced safety group does not include the forward collision. It is in the adaptive cruise package.
And thank you! LSU therapy is doing wonders and good Tricare insurance

Every vehicle which was considered mine was a stripped down model. My f150 STX didn’t have carpeting, I loved it. 2/3 of the crap I have on this Sport I don’t and will never use.

I learned in this thread that my Sport S does not have Sky 1 Touch nor at least 10 other options I enjoy everyday. I must have gotten the Sport S Unicorn edition.

Funny, we have 2 Saharas and the reason we went with that trim was the color matching fenders. Plus we needed selec trac for winter. Go figure.
