Just answered this in another section...

On Rubicons, if you get the black seats, you get the red dash. If you get the tan seats, you get the gray dash.

The exception are Mojito, Punkin and Hella....they all have the gray dash regardless of seat color. Guess Jeep decided red would clash with the exterior colors.
So THAT'S why I didn't get a red dash... thanks!

Sounds like a good guess to me. Looked at some "Punkin" Rubicons on the lot & the red trim doesn't look good at all. Totally killed the color for me. Then again, I'm probably one of the few who doesn't like Mojito either. I'll admitt, it looks GREAT in pictures. All dark green with the metallic flakes... I was really looking forward to seeing it in person. Then I did. Its bright friggen lime. Does Jeep have a secret partnership with RYOBI? lol

I think the proper terminology would be JL Unlimited Rubicon (JLUR) not JL Rubicon Unlimited (JLRU). But, whatever you call it, enjoy it - it looks great!

The Jeep really does look great! Kinda of jealous, still waiting for mine!
Does the new camera box behind the rear-view mirror happen to bother you??

2018 mazda 3 sedan. i want a JLUR
I am being told that the V6 only can be ordered with manual. The only way to get automatic transmission is with the turboTorque. Is this accurate?

The steering is fine. I've noticed nothing untoward.

You can get the automatic with the 2.0 turbo or the 3.6. However, you can only get the manual with the 3.6

Looks great! I too went with all white exterior. Mine has been shipped says about 10 days to dealership. I went with the black interior and red dash though. I liked the red dash with the white exterior. Congrats again.

Many thanks for the update. I am working with a local dealership on a 2019 Mojito JLUR, and could be driving it by Christmas!

We just ordered JLUR yesterday with the 24R package which is the 3.6 ESS with the 8-speed auto. Right now, dealers can only order this if it's for a customer (sold) order. Dealers can only order the 2.0 turbo for their own stock is what I've been hearing.

The only restriction on our 3.6/Auto order was the painted hard top.

Not accurate. I just ordered a 3.6+auto on Saturday with no issues. I have heard that dealers cannot order stock vehicles with the 3.6, but sold orders there is no problem.

I got tan interior too with a white jeep and i ordered the red dash for it. So I'll post pics of it when i install it. I did a photo shop mock up of it. I think it will look great.

I wasn't a fan of the tan seats, so I will be ordering black leather - However that looks real good! Maybe they made a mistake shipping the grey dash as default with the tan seats! Cruious - How'd you get it ordered with a red dash but tan seats? Are those factory leather, or the MOPAR/Katskinz leather?

I wish we were able to choose the dash color with whatever color of seats we chose.....

Would have liked that grey dash with black leather with the tan/white stitching instead of the red. But oh well.
