Would be easier to add the lower mat photos to your description and tell customers to verify which mat they have and state which listing is for which console. Some will still get it wrong because they do not read but at that point you did everything you can to let the person know.
In that scenario I would pull 2021 off the Amazon listing and use the pics of the mat on the JL forum to explain. Shoppers on Amazon don't do enough research and the bad reviews would destroy the product.

Watching 👀 Didn’t know of this product and am waiting for my ‘21 JL-R to be built. Will definitely want something like this for my Jeep
I have this organizer (both parts) and it’s helpful and quality. I highly recommend it.

I have a 2021 JLURD with all of the electronics including the front camera. My bottom console has this mat:

Can you post your VIN and build date?

It's starting to look like the 2021 Willys has the old style and the 2021 Rubicon the new style.

I thought something was off. I have a New 2021 ordered September 2020 got it on Dec 2 2020 ( had a 2018 Rubicon) my ham radio fit in the console, now it doesn’t, about 2.5” smaller in depth? I have the e-torque engine. I thought it was because of the new e-torque some how.

My 2021 2dr Rubi (built Dec 10, 2020) has the old style. The deep notch of the old style is to accommodate the manual brake lever. Did something change there and the console expanded because it could? I don't have the new style to compare.

The bottom part of the console is actually smaller front to back than the old style. The organizer center (front to rear) divider is too long to fit in the new console. The top part where the upper organizer goes is the same size as the older console.
