I've wanted a Wrangler since I was 16 but never had the opportunity to own one before for various reasons.
I finally decided that I'm going to take the plunge and go order one in January for early spring 2013 delivery.
I would have ordered one the first week in August when I went for a test drive just to confirm that I still wanted what I'd wanted since 16 but I'm in a lease that has a couple of months left.
The Wrangler is an awesome vehicle and I'm truly going to be appreciative of what it has to offer once I get my hands on one as a daily driver.
I've given it a lot of thought and the only thing I haven't nailed down is color. I really love black Wranglers but I've had four Black cars and I'd like a change. I'm thinking Billet or Deep Cherry Red, not really 100% sold on either until I see Billet on a Wrangler. I have a feeling that's what I'll end up with.
Anyways, I'm going to order a Sport S automatic with the power convenience group, connectivity group, Sirius, hardtop, deep tinted windows, side steps and slush mats. I'm debating on the Limited Slip Differential, not sure that I'll need it for the driving I'll do on I94 and other roads here in Michigan during the winter.
If anyone has input on the Limited Slip, I'd like to hear it. I'm an automotive engineer, specialized in interior plastics, but I understand drivetrain also. I understand what a Limited Slip Differential does and what its benefits are, but I'd like to know if it really benefits the Wrangler to have one for on road travel in snow.
This is a great forum and I've found forums like this to be an invaluable resource to vehicle ownership. I'm looking forward to being a part of this group of Jeep owners!
