venom - a local dealership said he could throw some of the black fenders on a saraha if we really wanted them, however they couldn't install the locker. It'd have to be ordered.
I wonder what that would do to the value at trade-in/resale time?
Since the painted fenders are a 'feature' of the sahara package.
I'm sure the painted fenders cost a lot more, so if you do go for a sahara with 'standard' fenders, you should really be entitled to some sort of allowance since they get to keep the more expensive part and replace it with a cheaper part.
Realistically though, they'll probably want to charge you for a set of flares AND keep the painted ones.
When I bought my JK, they were super scarce. The local dealer couldn't find me a Rubi at all, let alone exactly what I wanted - they were talking a 4 month wait on ordering one. 1 dealer about 50 miles away had a Rubi on the lot, and they were willing to deal on it (small town in the middle of nowhere in TX) so I ended up with my 3rd choice of colors and it didn't have mygig, but I've really grown to like the redrock and you can buy a heck of a stereo/dvd/nav sysytem for a lot less than the $1200 Jeep gets for mygig!
Luckily things have changed now and they're more plentiful and hopefully you can get exactly what you want!
Of course, that being the situation, NOW the dealer a mile from my house has a Detonator Yellow Rubi with mygig sitting there taunting me every day, daring me to trade
