Wow..... so that's how it is? Looks like we're going to have to settle this with a dance off. You and me, mano a mano

I have to say, I just purchased a 2015 Sport Unlimited two weekends ago, and so far this is a great vehicle. My only problem? Way too civilized for a Jeep. Nothing like my TJ, this thing is quick, likes the freeway (will run 95 sustained without any wobble or feeling of it having to work at it), and so quiet that you can use the bluetooth at freeway speeds at normal conversation level. And this is with the soft top, I'd love to know how much quieter it is with the hard top. Stereo is top notch, and the whole thing just feels very quality.

Like I said, just way too plush. From the driver seat while driving around on roads it feels no different than a Tahoe or something similar. Probably not a bad thing, but when I walk into the garage and have a choice, I still put the key in my 2004 TJ. It's just more fun.

We'll see how it does off road. Should be another weekend or two...

Maybe it's just the picture angle but is the area behind the back seat bigger?

Quick question. Will 18" stock 2012 Sahara wheels fit on the 2015 sport?

Yes. No problem.

I had the dealer swap out a set from a Sahara onto my Sport.

I kinda sorta wish i had waited another year and bought the Hydro Blue. Having said that, I definitely love the look of the red leather on white i ended up getting

Red is a Cherokee color, everybody knows that!

Copperhead is a Wrangler color.

Saw a '15 in the tank color last week on a dealer lot. Only color I'd prefer over my commando.
