My Punk'n Rubi didn't come with the red dash, certain colors don't. I'm not sure why they went that way. They put red accents on the "RUBICON", red tow hooks front & rear, and red accent badges that look really good with the orange, not sure why they didn't put it on the dash too. But the gray dash looks classy... not sure I want to spend $ to find out if I like the red dash better or not.
Anybody know if the HellaYella JL Rubicons come with the red dash, or do they come with the silver? If I was a betting man, I'd bet red, but I don't know.

That's an oversimplification of how the warranty works. Sure, your new suspension is not covered under warranty, but the rest of the vehicle's warranty is unaffected unless the suspension mod can be directly linked to the problem.
I did not mean void the whole warranty. Let's just assume a scenario, if a Sport put on Rubicon shocks and springs, then having steering stabilizer failure which is very common, dealer can just say "yes you put on Rubicon 'heavy duty' spring and shocks and that stressed the steering stabilizer,".then you are on your own.

The point here is not arguing whether dealer going to void warranty or not, it is merely a comparison of benefits buying a Rubicon and upgrade a Sport to Rubicon.

My Mojito came with a grey dash. The leather seats have the red Rubicon stitching. It was ore owned, so I don’t know the order history.

How do you know they were a ‘ore. Maybe they were just promiscuous.:giggle:

If I take a Sport S and add the LED lights, Rubicon suspension, Rubicon steel front and rear bumpers and the hood do I have a Rubicon? If I take a Rubicon and replace the suspension, wheels, tires, hood, put on a big stinger is it still a Rubicon? Is it possible to make a Rubicon a Sahara if I change enough crap? Move a Sport S upstream into a Sahara or Rubicon?

Or is it just a bunch of letters on a title somewhere?

Just curious
I did exactly what you just described on my Sport S. Wouldn't have done it any other way. (except the hood, maybe maybe next year).

I paid a premium so I could have the Rubicon logo, dirty looks from non-Rubicon owners (happens more than you’re willing to admit and you know it), and a false sense of entitlement.

Worth every penny.

Rubicon comes with premium cloth seats, one of the nicest cloth seats I have seen in years.
Sahara also has the premium cloth, I was going to buy Katskinz however I really like the cloth and after 6 cans of scotch-guard, they are tough and water rolls right off whereas leather will stretch and wrinkle not to mention cloth is much better (cooler and breathable) for top off or down... for me Leather is a waste of $1500. With that said though I bought the rough country Neoprene seat covers everyone is raving about, I may not put them on since I like the cloth so much (I never though I would own another cloth interior)
