Future Commander Owner - Color ?

I'm just about to pull the trigger on a new 08 Commander Limited with the 4.7 V8, the only thing I can't make up my mind on is the color. I think the Limited looks best in black with the chrome, however I know what a pain it is to keep clean. The dealer has found a Jeep Green one with the Saddle Brown interior, however it's in another state and not close enough to go take a gander. If any of you have the Jeep Green with Saddle Brown interior, would you mind posting a pic or two? I did a few searches on here and couldn't find any showing both, ie side view with the door open. Any other opinions on exterior/interior combinations for the Limited? Thanks in advance!

The brown interior is awesume, That is the only option I was not able to get and I would trade out my interitor anyday if I could find one to trade with.

Mine is Steel Blue not Jeep Green but I have the Saddle Brown interior... love it. Everyone who has seen it loves it too. The leather is really nice quality too... very supple.

I am not sure about the green and saddle interior personally. I saw one in person and since the brown is kind of reddish in color I didn't really like it with the green. It looks great with black & white though.

Saddle Brown looks good with any color. Hey, have you ever seen a horse that didn't match it's saddle? ;-)

Thanks for the input!

Thanks for the input all! I think I've decided to go with the Black exterior and Saddle Brown interior.... Now all that's left is for the dealer to find me one! Wish me luck!

Smile Finally mine!! 2008 Jeep Commander Limited - Black

Thanks for the input! I decided to go with black and after a little wheeling and dealing with the dealership (and the one they traded with) the Commander is mine! I had to take a pic right away at the dealer since the roads around here are still covered in salt and it didn't stay clean long.....

I traded in my old 2000 Nissan Xterra and there is no comparison, the handling and power of the Commander is great, even without the Hemi! Hell, the new V8 has 305HP!
