First Post - Thank You Wrangler Forum

Just wanted to thank everyone on here. I just ordered a brand new 12 Wrangler from the factory and got tons of great info on this board which helped me figure out what options to get, what to pay, etc. Should have my new Jeep in 8 weeks or so, fingers crossed. I currently have a 2002 Liberty Renegade which I love but which is starting to show it's age.

Anyway, I put the order in today for the following vehicle. There is still time to make change to the options so if anyone has any suggestions for something to add or delete I'd love to hear it.

2012 Wrangler Sport (Black)
S Package, six-speed manual
3.73 axle ratio (ordered due to this board)
Trailer tow group
Connectivity
Sirius satellite radio
Power convenience group
Limited slip differential (ordered due to this board)
Deep tint windows
Tubular side steps
7-speaker Infinity audio
Side Air Bags

Welcome!

Have you considered dropping the factory side steps at $352 FWP, and getting a set of ACE rock rails at $245 + shipping?

No I haven't yet. I will check into those. I really like the LOOK of the side steps, but I know from a function stand point they don't add much and can get in the way when off road. Thanks for the suggestion

Will do. Heading out in about 30 min to sign the paperwork and start that long wait. Wish me luck...

Welcome to the board! This is exactly my order minus the side steps. I planned on doing Bill's suggestion of the ACE Rock Rails so I left out the factory steps. IMHO the rails look better anyway.

@ESP123, my final invoice was $29,477, but got 2% under with TL. It hasn't been delivered yet so not quite sure what out the door will be.
