Hey Everyone!

I wanted to show off some of the little upgrades I have made to my Sport S (Her name is Nighthawk) so far.

2018 JLU Sport S Automatic Transmission - Granite Crystal Metallic with Black Interior

Factory Options:

Anti-Spin Differential (Dana 44 rear axle)
A/T Tires
Tech Group
Alpine Premium Sound
Freedom Hard Top
Convenience Group
Upgraded Polished Granite Crystal Wheels

Dealer Added Options:

Katzkin Heated Leather - Black
Tinted Front Windows to match factory back

Mopar Accessories:

Mopar Grab handles for front and back
All Weather Floor Mats (All Black Version)
Mopar Door Sill Guards for front and back
Dog Barrier for Trunk (Can't believe I spent $200 on a mesh net LOL)
Trunk Storage Tray
Not Mopar but I installed a 50-Cal Antenna in place of the ugly factory rod

I also removed the "Euro" bumper pieces that connect the front bumper and front fenders. I know this is personal preference but I believe it looks 100% better without them.

Sorry for the picture dump but I figured there are some of you that may appreciate seeing the Katzkin Leather if you are considering dealer installed leather for your Sport. Also, all of the Mopar accessories (With the exception of the all weather mats which my dealer ordered) were ordered from Quadratec and I figured it might be nice for you all to see some of them installed on a JL vs stock photos.

Next upgrade will be different wheels and 33 inch BFG KO2s!

Looks great.

Do you mind sharing more or less what the leather cost?

Absolutely! My dealer charged me $1500 for the heated leather, it would have been $1250 without heat. I don't really have a lot of experience with Katzkin but on their website they say pricing starts at $1500 so I think I got a pretty fair deal.

Thats comparable to the package price on the upper trims. And less than leather and cold weather. Plus you get it like you want. Nice job.

Hey thanks man! Here is a pic with one off and one on. I personally just think it looks more aggressive without it and more signature wrangler. Considering they don’t have it on the Sahara or Rubi I genuinely don’t think think there was a functional reason other than differentiating the sport.

I agree that the seats look fantastic (along with everything else). Very nice Jeep!

Looks really nice! Quick questions: Are the leather simply seat covers? Will the side airbag be impacted at all?

I wouldn't change the wheels just tires. These are the only JL wheels I like.
