We specifically ordered the brown seats. So, no regrets.

We do wish they were the darker brown leather seats, like most other manufacturers offer.

Here are some pics of the new leather interior installed today. Fits like factory leather but feels a 100 times softer and more comfortable.

I have a Mojave with the light grey interior.

I will tell you that I do worry about getting crap on it. One thing that I've3 found to be very useful is that you can flip the rear seat backs down in about 3 seconds. So if I have something that may have a bit of dirt on the bottom but I dont' want to put it in the way back, I flip the seat back down and put it on the grey carpet.

If I had gotten the Black, I wouldn't bother.

But I also appreciate the light interior when its sitting with the doors off and there is sun shining on the seats.

In the market for a rubi gladiator and found one that has the brown (I think saddle is the official color) leather seats. I like the nostalgic look especially since it’s a red gladiator, but I’ve never owned a light colored interior before, especially in my jeeps. Just looking for opinions!
I've got an Overland with Saddle and it's the best color IMO... but like someone else posted wish the dash and console were Saddle as well...

Nothing worse than coming back to black leather seats that have been in the sun all day. I wish jeep offered more light colored interiors, or at least went back to the beautiful tobacco brown leather color they used on the JKs (the brown on the JL is more of a light tan IMO). If it were up to me I’d have no black in my interior

The Saddle Brown seats were about the only thing that caught & held my wife's eyes.
We both like the Rubicon but the seats in person were/are daily, a reminder that we made the correct selection.

Sorry for the late rep,y, but I wanted to share my two cents. I snagged a red Gladiator with saddle leather seats, and honestly, I'm loving the combo! It gives off those cool nostalgic vibes, and the red-saddle duo is a head-turner. Light-colored interiors can be a bit nerve-wracking, but so far, no regrets here. Embrace the nostalgia – it's totally worth it! Just a heads up, keeping these beauties in top shape is key. Found some fantastic leather care tips at vonbaer.com. They cover everything from types of leather and various leather products to top-notch treatment guides. My seats are still rocking that fresh look, thanks to their advice.

I ordered my JTRD with the saddle leather for no other reason than to avoid the red dash. When it arrived, I loved the seats and forgot about my concern with the red dash. Although I am much happier that it is gray. But ironically, due to my ability to spill and my furry friend, I covered them with tan Carhartt covers that receive more compliments than the seats. Not sure why as they fit pretty loosely in the seat area but it provides an old school look.

I did a 60 percent seat delete and I couldn’t find a single cover for the rear seat so I can still enjoy the saddle brown leather. If anyone has a single rear Carhartt cover, please let me know.

You got it! Good eye!
Since this thread was revived, I gotta ask, is that flag sequence a US Navy thing? Cause my boating letter sheet gave me "NELLEH" I thought maybe it was supposed to be read backwards as "Hellen" or something lol

As for Saddle Leather, I love my Katskin in black but I REALLY wish I'd gotten saddle brown. Grew up on a horse farm so that's real nostalgic for me....
