No, lol. The one on top is BD, the other one is what comes up when you Google, “car spare.”

Okay lol boy, you don’t like them...good for you. I’m not getting them, but they’re good looking wheels and some people do. Way, way better looking than base, big bend, and outer banks stock wheels.
Okay, boomer.

It shows the trail cam and the 360 camera option.
But you are puttering down a trail.

Driving around town, you can't use that info. And if I'm driving on a trail, I don't need all the other info like temp, radio, climate, etc on there, too.

I must have misunderstood your point. I don't want 5 things on the screen at one time.

Being able to toggle between map, camera, Playlist, etc is something 8 or 12 inch screens will be able to do.

Steel rims give a better ride than alloys.

This has been known for ages.

I agree. I also like steelies off road because if I bend them I can reshape them on the trail.

A good set of steel rims is substantially more damage resistant than alloys.

The current trend of putting $2000 alloy wheels on off-road vehicles is purely aesthetic driven.

Then they should offer steel that doesn't look like a bad spare.

Honestly, I would have stuck with the Badlands. Who wants black seats on a topless vehicle? I live in the high desert.
I have black leather in my Ranger and lets face it, once it's 100+ outside it really doesn't matter what damn color you have. Throw some seat covers on for the summer months and call it a day. That's what I've been doing for years, just get the right covers.

I lived in AZ for 12 years and did my undergrad at ASU. You are right. I was there when it was 122 one day and 130-plus on the tarmac of an air base.

It's friggin brutal here ninth summer and this one was especially nasty. We broke every record there was. Last time I checked it was 54 and counting with the most days with 110+ temps. I bought some seat covers from Costco that have actually worked out great. They're a little slippery but you don't stick to them or burn your ass every time you get in. I just wouldn't let black seats keep you from getting what you really want. :)
