I saw nothing about it on the option sheet. I hope I get red, but grey wouldn't be terrible.
Not really an "option" since it seems to be tied to the color of your seats. Black=Red Dash, Tan=Silver Dash.

Also, was the red jeep in the video fitted with 35" tires? Were any of the jeeps at the show? And if so, were they also lifted or were they stock height?

The Mojito definitely had 35's, but it also had a 2 inch lift.

According to the stand next to the yellow rubicon it was stock height with stock 33’s

But the sign also said it had the power top which we all know isn’t right so who knows

That's what I thought, but so much info seems to be fluid right now. Hopefully, FCA will clear some things up in the coming days.

Any word on when we’ll see an online configurator?

The video is awesome. Quick question for those who have experience ordering "dual" top option. Does the hard top sit on top of a soft top frame? Or do you get the soft top and all the associated parts in some box for you to figure out at home? From the video it looks like the soft top travels in some sort of channel frame.
On the JK, the soft top is bolted to the roll bars in back and folded up. Wrapped in a cover, too. It sits nicely under the hard top. The window rails were in a box in the cargo area.

During one of the JL videos, the FCA guy disconnected the soft top frame from the rails, and laid the soft top assembly down into the side of the tub. So I imagine the JL soft top (when purchased with a dual top) will be delivered the same way as it was on the JK.

The red 2 door rubicon had 33's (std tire size as did the yellow).

I'm beggining to think IF I upgrade to 35's down the road we'll be hard pressed to get them on the standard Rubicon 17x7.5 rim. I think BFG for the 35 inch tire wants at least 8 width on the rim. Anyone know?
Lots of people run 35s on stock wheels. I have never done it but I'm going to give it a try for at least a short while.

I’m also worried about standard AUTOMATIC engine. I don’t want the turbo 4.
Jeep, if you want to upsell me to a Rubicon by making the Sport functionally useless, at least let me have the Pentastar..

You can run the 35's on stock rims. I also think the wider axles allow for 35's without spacers or rims with different backspacing. We'll see for sure, soon!

What's the preferred size for a 35, in metric? 305? 315? When I go to 35's, they will be KO2's, so I'd like to know the subtle difference in sizes. I want load range C or D and as light weight as possible.

BFG's ALWAYS run smaller than their listed dimensions. Just an FYI.
