Rank'm-Top Jeep Debates

Relatively new here and have noticed some regular debates that pop up frequently yet reach no consensus. While most are preference, it's pure entertainment to watch. I'm a relatively new jku owner, so I'm often just lurking and watching the fireworks. I wondered how folks would rank the top debates in terms of which generates the most passionate disagreements. Here are the contenders... ( noted by letter to make it easy for you to rank)

A - manual vs automatic
B -synthetic oil vs. regular
C - 4 dr vs . 2dr
D - color matched top vs. black std top
E- sport vs sahara vs rubicon
F - hard top vs. soft top
G - lifetime warrantys
H - color choice

Any I missed?

IMO the awesomeness of the jeep IS the # of unique packages one can find.

Don't forget the infamous "Square vs. Round" argument.

Wave threads. People freak out if they don't get the wave they think they deserve. It's absolutely hilarious, and my guilty pleasure is to try to troll those threads and keep them going..

The best one with YJs is the sway/trac bar delete... You post a thread about it in the YJ section and it will be at 2 pages in like an hour. Even though theres already 417 threads on it...lol

Electric and air lockers are both manual style lockers. Don't forget auto lockers or cable lockers.

I think the biggest too that don't ever seem to go away are the "Jeep wave" and the "Can I fit 35" tires without a lift on my TJ?" threads.....never seem to end!

Everyone also is asking about CAI's too......

Ditto on the Winch debate, can not get any information on a winch here with out it turning into a Warn or you will leave your life on the line when the other brand fails. Funny thing is, and not knocking Warn, but in research outside the forum, I find more Warn failures than anything else. Good thing is they almost all come back to Warns customer service being of the highest level. Says a lot about Warn in my opinion, but does not validate the life on the line arguments.

P.S. I had two Warns, one new and it would not spool out and a used one that worked like a charm but was too small for my Jeep.
