I honestly believe they know the bling doesn't look as good on purpose to incentivize upgrade to the Rubicon...
They now have the Altitude model where everything is blacked out - available for both Sport and Sahara. I think they just really thought it looked cool... but it turned out, it didn't...

I could not find it on the web. Maybe you can find it. It was $20.00 at the dealer. This is what you're looking for.

This is a fun thread I’ve seen on a few other forums. Can be anything from mods to drives, to washes, etc. pictures are always a plus!

So what did you do to your Jeep today?
This past weekend, I removed the back seats!! Aahhhh, so much better.
My old 2011 Rubicon, they came out a week after I bought it.
I also changed the oil at 1003 miles. Installed a magnetic drain plug too.
All good and next oil change at 4000 miles, then 5000 foward.

Some people like it, so they sold a bunch of them. Some people don't, so they make a blacked-out version, and are selling a bunch of them. Win/win for Jeep.
Bingo. The folks who make such decisions may be aesthetically challenged, but I doubt if they’re diabolical.

Jeeps lots of jeeps
Got new wheels and tires installed! Fuel vapor wheels 20x10 -18mm offset and 35x12.50 nitto ridge grappler tires. Everything fit stock on the 2019 JLU Rubicon, no rub around town.

How do the tires feel? I'm curious how the F rating feels compared to the stock tires/previous tires you have run.

they are a good Five Star dealer...I found out since I bought mine that my local Five Star dealer here is horrible and I will never do business with them. They refuse to participate in the Jeep Wave Program most of the time. They won't give loaners and they have charged for stuff that is supposed to be free.
Yes Gwinnett does and they have taken care of her every time I go.

Installed my @BestopTeam Sunrider Soft Top yesterday then took it for a drive. Love how easy it is to open the top now compared to the Freedome top panels.

I do have a question for others that have installed this. The back seems to site a bit short of where I would have expected it to. Is there a way to adjust this so it fits better or is this how yours sits?

Also, do other experience the fabric flapping while its open? I was only driving about 45 MPH max yesterday and the fabric in the center was flapping somewhat. I'm concerned with what the will do over time, fabric wear or other issues.

And a quick pic of it installed.

Reinstalled mine this past weekend. Here is a picture on both sides. I think mine is a little closer fitting, but not a whole lot. Maybe check with BestTop on fit.

Today's theme of the day... Paint protection over paint correction. In just 3 hours flat. Boomshakalaka!

Wash, clayed, tar x, iron x, rinsed, dried, alcohol carpro eraser, ceramic wax.

Overnighted then rinsed and sprayed ceramic wax and rinsed off again.

Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
How'd you break....or should i not ask? :)
My winch is recessed in the frame rails and the way it sits, there is a lip of from the bumper that the rope dragged across and frayed the rope. I have a fairlane, but the angle that the rope goes in when all the rope is on the drum caused it to drag on the lip. I have ground down the lip so it should solve the problem.

Ah - that sucks. I had something similar on my ATV at 1 time.
