I saw the tan on a black Rubi. Just my opinion of course but the tan is, well let's be nice and say not my cup of tea. You should see it live before ordering it for any color of Jeep.

We have a tan leather interior on our Audi Q5. It has held up well, and combined with a medium brown dash & surrounding surfaces makes for a calm feeling. Our 2010 Prius with a very dark gray interior feels mine shaft gloomy.

I had tan leather in a new truck once. I liked the looks but the dye off my blue jeans stained it and could not get it out. Never again.

Only color I could see ordering was firecracker red with tan and GCM with tan. All other colors I would order black seats. I ordered JLUR GCM with tan seats after I was able to actually see this combo at the dealer and I really liked the tan leather but not the tan cloth seats.
Get what you really want and I have had black leather in my previous Jeeps and with a Spider Web shade the black leather did not get uncomfortable.

That's the Combo I'm ordering with the 2.0.

Please make up a story and tell me that Sting Grey can be ordered next week.

I think this tan color is a terrible decision on Jeep's part. It's too light in color with a lux texture. It's going to ware fast and show dirt. It also clashes terribly with the dash design (especially the reds of the Rubicon trim) with no other tan integrated into the interior design. Maybe there are plans for that down the road? I think the only exterior color it looks attractive with is the white. I'm sticking with my JK and Saddle Brown leather (which is super handsome and durable) for now. Bring back the Saddle Brown in the JL!

Agree about the dash

Rubicon actually goes to a gray dash and white stitching if you select the tan interior, so they covered that color clash.

I'm a huge fan of gray cars with brown interiors (BMW and Audi come to mind) and want so much to like Heritage Tan... it looks great in their marketing photos that are obviously darkened!

Thanks everyone for your input. I've decided to go with the Black leather with my Sting Gray. I think the tan would look fine but believe the Black will hold better over time. And I like the red accents that come with the black interior and like that they will match the red exterior Rubicon decals. Now it's order time! Happy days!

I live in Florida. Tan is my choice, regardless of exterior color that I decide on. Tan also removes that awful red dash.
