Honey is a lite tan color and only available in 1985. The honey Laredo seats have darker stripes while the nutmeg seats have light contrasting stripes. Nutmeg is a light brown color with a little more red.

Thanks. Being I have an 86 Laredo I can safely assume nutmeg.

I believe 86 had honey also. My Renegade is an 86 model year, built in October 85. It has honey features.

There are plenty of good pics online you can compare with (and as many opinions lol). And I think Hog may be right that honey was 2 years, I can't remember.

Spent some time this afternoon repairing the leather on the grab bar and using a little more of the nutmeg dye I had the local paint shop mix up. The bottom side of the bar was in really good condition but the top was pretty rough and now has had extensive repairs. I'll flip it so that side is on the bottom and it'll be good to go. Not as nice as those $900 bars you see online or even the $300 repops, bit I've got a nice looking bar for a fraction of the price and the satisfaction of knowing I saved if from the scrap heap. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the other one I custom wrapped.

That turned out very nice. Looks great. I had an 82 CJ-7 Laredo and that brings back memories - that was the color of my interior.
