Black interior on 2012

Have jeep engineers never driven with the top off. For 2012 the interior color options are black with silver or saddle trim. The dash and seats are black......not very nice when it is 100 and your sitting in traffic. The light greyor biege was nice.....why not leave 1 as an option. Good thing is u can fry bacon on your seats in the summer......and us Canadians like our bacon eh!!!!

I'd bet the engineers didn't make the decision on interior color options...

I don't see the problem. Don't they sell towels up in Canada???? We live down in the desert and the color of the seats make no difference in summer, and that is even on a convertible with black leather seats.

park next to a lake somewhere. Leave the top off long enough and the damn seaguls (or pigeons) will turn the interior white.

Round ham stuff is peameal bacon......i mean just good old strip bacon. Ya most likely wasn't an engineer......probably a bean counter that calculated they could save a few bucks by not offering more options. Yes black leather is "hotter" when in direct sunlight. Get in a light grey cloth interior with your shorts.....then jump in black leather seat with the top off......if u can't feel the difference u have leather legs or should back off the pain killers!!!!! We don't live in the winter tundra here, southern Ontario is farther south than the Utah, California and Nevada's northern border was 77 here today and is suppose to be over 80 by the end of the week, above average for this time of year but i'll take it!!!
Just saying it would have been nice to have something other then "black" with different colored trim!
PS our beer is better then that watered down stuff u drink..... how do u guys get drunk off that weak stuff?!?!

For top off guys the black sounds like a bad idea. The dark grey is hot enough!

That's what you get for having a leather interior in a vehicle where it doesn't remotely belong.

And you silly canuck, the US currently makes the best beer in the world (took a long time to get to that point though). Just stop drinking the stuff you see advertised that looks like pee-pee and you'll be fine. Now ship me some moose jerky, eh?

A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

What the hell people keep calling that Canadian bacon,you would ask Canadian bacon in most restaurant and they would look at you with a weird wtf look. Its back bacon for sake and while i do love Samuel adams,the best beer are still over sea.

And leather black seat....did you not get the memo?Chrysler don't sell off road vehicle anymore,they sell incredible soccer mom vehicle with the ability to deal with any situation you could encounter in a walmart parking lots.

Winter is coming.
