Hey gang, new member here thinking about pulling the trigger on a TR (once the wife gives me the go ahead lol) but I am torn on the interior color options for the TR2 package. Does anyone have the red accent package, and how do they like it so far? Only real downside I have heard so far is the potential part shortage with the red trim (although I am okay with waiting a little bit) as well as something about the tweeter speaker appearance. Let me know what you guys think and if its worth it or not.

On my first order I skipped it because I think it works better on certain exterior colors. I ordered granite. On white or red I would probably do it. Maybe black. The rest I’m kinda ambivalent

I am thinking of doing the blue two tone exterior, I think it looks really sharp! Not sure if the red would look good with it though.... I would love to see some of those combinations if anyone has it!

I really like the blue. I might do red accents and calipers in red

That would be really cool, like factory Brembo style
I’m super anal about tying colors together.

yellow goes nicely with blue also so if you like the look would skip the red accents and do yellow calipers. I might even color match the wheels blue

1500 bucks is way too much for red stitching
I come from supercar world where colored stitch is 6-10k option but yeah. $1500 for some pieces of red leather and thread is not a small amount.

i would definitely do it on white. Maybe black and maybe red. Others I would need to have a concept in my head that I was going to tie in the red interior accents

There are red elements inside the truck like in the instrument cluster and infotainment system graphics whether you get the red accent package or not ... the accent package imo completes that look. Whether it's worth it or not is really up to each person, for me the interior would look incomplete without it and would trigger me not having it, but I have unhealthy levels of ocd that my not be relevant to most other folks.

Personal preference for sure. I do not like the red accents at all.

I am all down for a cheaper car note at the end of the day don't get me wrong! Even 1100$ for speakers that I will probably be changing out after anyways also sounds expensive, but its the only way to get a nice factory location for the tweeter in the doors....

You my friend have a good eye for color matching, I really dig that
The shop was begging me not to do it. I told them they lacked vision. When it was done they loved it

These are very definitive pictures. thanks! It really does look like something is missing without the red though, I agree with you.

I love it and feel it gives the interior a much more distinctive feel.

I usually don't like red interiors or heavy red accents and agree that there are certain colors it might look strange on. That said, I think it looks too plain without the red accents and they do touch a lot of interior pieces with those red accents, so I understand the pricing a little better than the exterior TRX decals. My buck-o-five.

I personally love shockingly unexpected interiors. If I could do it I would’ve ordered a white truck with full red interior but I like sportscars in white/white black/white, black/red, etc.

my range rover is basically granite exterior with off white leather interior. Makes getting into it special in some indefinable way.

I am learning towards that as well. I had a 2017 Rebel 1500 that I loved the red interior on.

I did not pick the red. Thought it was too much
