2021 Rubicon
Hey All, new to this forum/site, but not to Jeeps. Ordered a 2021 Rubicon and traded my 2010 Wrangler Unlimited Mountain Edition (Black, with removed exterior decals). Since it was a while before delivery, quoted 5-7 weeks, it was ample time to start adding and replacing. HUGE shout out to my Dealer and Sales Professional who felt like a brother last two months. Some of my thought process…

Leather seats and body color fender flares? Nope.

Certainly, all seat options look very nice, but personally I had premium cloth seats in my last Jeep and really liked them – comfortable and not hot or cold. If the premium cloth seats were not heated, it would be leather - no question. The premium cloth seats in the Rubicon have a nice design and texture and are stock with a nice red stitching. The leather stitches in the “better” Mopar seats have white stitching while the rest of the car has red stitching…or these would have been great, but it did not even look right in the build screen. Why not just black? Leather easier to clean...yada yada, Simoniz Scotchguard done with warranty...so no spill lectures and tears as stains are no longer my problem and water (and I assume even the tragic yellow water from the kidos) beads right off. If I was to do anything it would be custom…but again, I have a leather couch and when I lay on it, I cover it with cloth.

Fender flares…I had the “plastic” standard on my last jeep and liked the matte contrast look black on black, on many other colors I totally get it.

Sky One-Touch top is very cool - wish the back window was removable. The back seat should have sun too, or not if they wish. I have been that guy on the side of the road putting tops on in the wind. Everyone happy!

The red-only option interior dash was pretty loud. It had to go. Ordered some Amazon-sold carbon dash kits, junky, glossy, and one even came pre-scratched for my disappointment! Wrapped it in 3M carbon fiber with a great sign/wrap company in the area. Took the dash out which was a big labor cost, but It changed everything on the inside. It is a matte finish carbon (pics are hard to show this), but incredible. Of everything done, I am most thrilled with this swap, now glad it did not come with a black or grey plastic as it forced me to make a move. I do hope Jeep offers a less stressful color in the next line-up.

And more red. The more blacked out I get this, the better, just my taste. I had the (Granite/Red OEM) JEEP and TRAIL RATED badges replaced with a matte all-black Mopar OEM – I think it is used on the Gladiator, but all handled by parts department. Ordered some high-end decals to cover the red paint stickers on the rims…again, cutsie Auto Zone aisle 7 stuff I would never add myself but did not have the option to just say no. Rims may go eventually, but these are really nice san-sticker. Not a fan of stickers all over the car...we all know it is a Wrangler, but I get it too...either way is good.

Kudos to Rugged Ridge offerings for the 2021 Jeep. I went with the LED lighting after some reviews of better headlights, as safety is #1. The headlight/taillight guards are a great value and very high quality, awesome material. The XHD hood latch is a great look (and more in size with the 2010, chunkier), but it also decreases that “semi hood flutter”. Don’t ask me about install, just took to the dealer to add on delivery…seamless, so ignore the 1-star ratings that it does not fit, they do. But not over a non-LED light, ha.

Threw on a WARN bumper guard until I figure out the final configuration of the front, or not. Looks cool I think, not expensive to give the more custom look. Then rounded off with the Aries ActionTrac LED lighted power running boards for mom…”it’s too high!!” Secretly, I really like them...they drop down quick and, well, it's a powered something add-on!

After doing so much research on these threads I just thought I would offer my personal thoughts and experience – as all Jeeps are individual and personal, but Wranglers always turn my head no matter how they are done. Enjoy, Happy Holidays!

I took delivery of my 2021 JLU on a cold and overcast Penna. morning in late October. Fine, I thought, I'll just wait for a sunny day to take a nicely composed photo for this thread.

I'm still waiting, so this is what you get. :LOL:

After almost 3 months wait, we finally took delivery of our JLR in Los Angeles and towed it home to the BayArea. The Blue JLUR is my Bro's Jeep at his home in L.A. So happy to finally get back in a Jeep and join this community.

Found her on a lot and brought her home on Christmas Eve.

Confession time: I was a first night Bronco reservation holder. But each time Ford announced something, I realized I was compromising more and more. Saw this and knew it was meant to be.

Jeep Wrangler JLU Granite Crystal
2021 Rubicon in Crystal Granite. Optioned with the steel bumper, leather seats, tow group. The stiching on the leather is red by the way. Not sure if now standard, but it came with the head liners which was a nice surprise. Ordered 3 September 2020 picked up 23 December 2020. But that is after two previous failed deliveries, dealer change and a last moment colour change (otherwise I'd be waiting until February). I didn't order specifically but it came with the trail management system. Ah, and the black wheels with the polished lip was a throw in from the dealer.

Hey guys. Got my wife our first Jeep ever.
She has wanted one for over 20 years. Found it on a dealers lot and purchased it the day after Christmas.

Really sharp looking Jeep. The black grill goes particularly well with the yellow. Thanks for sharing the pic.

I have been a "Ford truck man" for the last 20 years. I thought I was going to wait for the Bronco to come out, but I kept researching it and decided against it. I ordered my Sarge Green Unlimited Rubicon this morning (Jan. 30).
