"......Jeep's black is actually a metallic black that looks awesome in sunlight........."
indeed, i believe it came out in 2004, it is called Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat....it has been available on the Chrysler 300 and the Ram Trucks also, i had it on my 2004 Limited, fantastic colr.
as for the interior, i was really pissed that Jeep never offered tan leather on the WK, like they did on the WJ.
now, its back for the WK2, which is great, thats what i would get since it looks great with the BBCP paint. never liked that saddle brown, looks old and worn from day one but hey thats great they offer a bigger choice on the new GC. black interiors? forget about it. thats so 60's.
