RoxstarD The thing about wrestling a pig in the mud that you have to eventually realize is that the pig enjoys it.

Same thing trying to argue with a troll.

Further, many folks on this board are going to change wheels/tires anyway, so it truly makes no difference. And as of 2011 the Sahara actually comes with a better stock suspension than the Sport.

The argument thus ignores the suspension and boils down to power windows (which are options on the Sport anyway) and body color fenders (which are not). Neither makes any difference as to offroad capability, though the fenders are admittedly perhaps a minor maintenance issue.

So, to summarize: Minor maintenance issue = Mall crawler; No minor maintenance issue = Offroad master.

Stupid.
Haha funny guy

That's called auto correct spellin

Remember that some of the great mod advice that you receive on this forum are from Sahara jeepers . I don't notice you calling them "soccer moms" when you ask questions :-)

And of course Chrysler made the Sahara for the soccer moms and the upper income that want more luxury then trail function. But will it off road if you don't care to scratch the fenders? Of course it can and it will do just as good. But again why would you want to scratch nicely painted fenders. And yes Chrysler made them for the mall crawl crowd but that doesn't mean that someone else can't like it and buy it for more.

As far as the wheels... I would again choose the sport, because the Sahara actually has 18 inch wheels, which means when you eventually upgrade tires, they will be more expensive.
True , when you upgrade tires they will be more expensive . But may I add that when you purchase a jeep, EVERYTHING is more expensive :-) mods +mods+mods = smiles and empty pockets

RaiderRUBICON It doesn't matter what kind of jeep you buy,all Jeeps are great.

Don't let the mall crawler talk bother you,I have a 08 rubicon,my buddy has an 09 Sahara,we both enjoy the "lifestyle" of the Jeep world. (not what size tires you have)

Thats what it is all about.

Pick one already!!!! and enjoy.

Hey, I never said which Sahara I would be taking. But the one in the avatar would make it.

kjeeper10 I can't speak for most but If I just bought a spanking new Sahara It would not see dirt either 5 years later when she's paid off, now that's a different story

Douche.
Exactly. I bought mine because it had the options I required. Limited Slip, trailer package, etc. And it's never been to a mall. And if I tear the fenders off, off road, who cares? It's a Jeep.

When I bought it, I didn't know the difference between the models.
07-08-2011 11:22 PM
mgerken1 Wow folks everyone take a chill pill. Do you own a Jeep? Do you love it? Then don't apologize ever. Real Jeepers will wave everytime. I will. Sahara, Unlimited, Rubicon, Sport, 4 door, 2 door.

It is your own. And because it's a Jeep. It Rocks.

Period.

desertgoose Take it easy ..lol. I don't see the issue with rim size. Smaller is cheaper but I imagine the street tires won't do well in the dunes. All jeeps have a somewhat rough ride but the fun more than makes up for it. Yes, it gets hot inside a wrangler since it isn't insulated like a typical car. But the ac works and doesn't take long to cool the interior from 115 degree days.
