I’d Rather Talk Jeep’s!
For years now jeep designers have dropped the ball. I don’t work and have no plans to work but for jeep I would reconsider bc they seriously need someone who isn’t color blind and is coherent to handle their “lipstick” department.

It started going downhill when jeep had the brilliant idea that a red dash would be loved by all and match all the rubi exterior colors. It didnt. Now you can get gecko with that red dash. Like wtf Jeep. Jeep’s styling has become halfassed at best. No effort. No thought. My 392 didn’t even get the 392 tailgate badge, for some idiot threw on the standard jl badge like I wouldn’t notice, and it happened on MANY 392’s. Jeep also decided to put a matte chrome ring all over the place on the dash and gear shift, but leaves the empty indentation around the cup holder less than 1 inch away from the gear shift. If you aren’t familiar with the 392, it was detailed in a gold bronze color. But again Jeep failed and used multiple colors that don’t even match. The gold wheels are mostly platinum. The 392 s gold bronze. The shocks are gold. The rubi lettering is outlined in brownish bronze. The stitching on the seats is a tan orange and Jeep didnt even try to incorporate one of their many gold bronze colors in the interior minus the thread fail. It seems with every additional model Jeep throws at us, they forget about attention to detail. They just throw shit at the jeep and see what sticks. Given the amount of options, we could be ordering some badassed looking stock Jeep’s if only Jeep was “a la cart” instead of no choice within model.

but really
HIRE ME BECAUSE YOUR STYLIST IS COLORBLIND, LAZY, AND IS CRAP. even high I could do
a better job bc I learned how to match colors in kindergarten.

AND NO ONE WANTS THAT STUPID “UNLIMITED” decal. In fact. Delete all decals it would make my life easier bc I wouldn’t have to remove them all….

but geez I love Jeep’s…. Especially my 9th one… the 392! Kicks ass.
I hear you. I ordered a Sarge Green Rubicon and while I wait for it to be delivered I’m thinking about repainting the red dash and removing/replacing the red Rubicon exterior details.

It would be nice to have them match the interior dash and stitching to the paint color. Although I do like my red dash, only because I don’t have a eye catching color( granite). If I had gecko or punkin or hella yella I’d like that color on the inside as well instead of the red.
Totally agree!

Wait, what's wrong with Gecko and a red dash? It's gonna look rad.

Not your taste? That's OK! Your Jeep probably isn't to my taste, either.

I skipped most of the TL;DR paragraph (I get enough of that from my wife) but I can’t say I disagree that some of the color choices are questionable. My Ocean Blue rubicon looks like a Buffalo Bills fan jeep because of the blue/red color scheme.

But come on, @Jjirish give the people what they really want... pics of the 392!
Omg i have! Pics and a video!

I agree, there were many places where they dropped the ball. How about the granite glossy Dash panels instead of satin like everything else, then the chrome vent rings instead of using the Mojave orange that matched the stitching and such on the inside. I went ahead and bought The Mojave vents and replaced mine, as well as blacked out the trim rings around the speedometer and tachometer so they were easier to read and didn’t look out of place.

i kinda like the red.
That is why I ordered it that way.
If you do not like it than you could get the black.
Jeep has made many improvements.
If you do not like it do not buy it!

I haven't read the entire thread, so shame on me if this has been said.

Jeep people (car people in general), as well as guitar players...customize everything. Why not customize their dashes?
I think it would be more important for jeep to have reliable electronics than a pantone matched dash.
Just my opinion.

I ordered a black JLUR with tan leather, red dash was a bit much. Went with black because not only is it a clean and classic color but it was the only way I could not see three different colors inside the Jeep. Have to agree with the OP.
