I haven't bought yet, waiting for my tax return and possibly saving a few k for a down. There are no rebates for the wrangler, but dayum theres a 3k one on the liberty that makes me want to buy an arctic heheheh. no whre near the offroad prowess but dayum they are nice SUV.
I'm watching the whole gas thing and I get the distinct feeling that a rebate will be forth coming if gas spikes $4 hehe

|JKatfish||I think the 2 dr tow can be ordered w 3.73 or 3.21. The MAX tow only comes with 3.73 w 4 dr?|

|rubicube||not sure if its been brought up yet i just zipped to the bottom, but i was getting some rattle from my spare tire tightened up fine but called the dealership about it and theyve been having problems with the jeeps being delivered with the spare attached loosely, so grab your tire iron and check those boys|

Having said that, I only got the Auto Climate in the jeep because the one in stock that I liked had it.

|Blackened||Make sure you get 3.73 gears. (aka the towing package)|

Look into to Tread Lightly Program that offers 1% below invoice pricing. You can do a search to see all the details.
I would also go with the 3.73 gearing.

If you're going to buy new wheels, try to get the 16" wheels to save some money. However, this is usually dictated by the other options. If the one you want already has the upgraded wheels, see if they'll give you some money off and switch to the 16". My wife was PISSED that I got the upgraded wheel package and replaced them at 1000 miles.
Or, you could go the other direction: See if they'll throw the Rubicon wheels on your sport. They usually have a bunch of extras lying around.
Color: If you're going to wheel it, try to get a light color. I got black, scratches show up more. I love the black, but would probably get silver next time.
Also, probably want to get the tow package. This will also give you stronger/stiffer springs.

At 65-yo, I have been a trucky for as long as I remember! I love VA's Mtns and always wanted a JEEP! With retirement weeks away I wanted a new vehicle that would allow me to explore America's Mtn Trails, so I started looking!
I test drove a 2012 JKU and that ruined my life
I bought it, love it and cannot get enough of it! The MOD addiction is going to break me, but DAMN, it's like a drug
Nothing like a 2012 JKU

|JKatfish||Yeah, I didnt even know about the gearing differences until I got on the forum. I would have kicked myself if I got stuck with the 3.21...and no limited slip. Cheap upfront mods, expensive aftermarket! If they aint got what you want, order it and use the Tread Lightly, 1% under invoice, unless you can get a better deal!|

|Arterious||I want to thank everyone for the information, especially on the gearing, I didn't even THINK of that at first. I'm omw to my local dealer to go test drive and most likely annoy em cause I ain't buying till after my tax returns hehehehe|
|01-25-2012 05:52 PM|
|JKatfish||Make sure it has what you want that cant be added later, such as 3.73, limited slip, power group, and looks like you made your mind about an automatic, too. I went with a hardtop, since a soft top is more available aftermarket, such as Bestop Trek NX. Infinity sound is your preference, but I decided not to mess with upgrading the sound since I dont listen that much. Other than color, most other options, wheels, bluetooth, tow and tint can be added later. Good luck!|

other than that i LOVE my 12.

|i82much||I have no specific advice. I went from a truck to a 12 two-door rubi. I am absolutely in love. Do it.|

|Aegis||I have a 2009 Rubicon and a 2012 Sport. I ordered the sport with limited slip 3.73 gears connectivity group (USB) connector HD tow upgraded speakers. I wanted the Nav radio but was told it can't be ordered on the sport. I am really impressed with the standard radio and will probably not upgrade the radio.|

|BillyPete||Limited Slip rear diff is a must in my book, and heated seats. Dont waste your money on the auto A/C controller either, doesnt work for sh*t.|
|01-25-2012 10:46 AM|
|Ballandchain||Gears!!! Drive the 3.21's and the 3.73's an see what you like. Decide if you want/need a hardtop/softtop or if you can live without one or the other, you've already decided auto which is a real good tranny, listen to the BASE system compared to the entry level Infinity system. I don't like/won't buy a factory navigation but the base Infinity doesn't have it and I really like my Infinity system since I don't plan of doing anything myself like in previous vehicles.|

|Cudda||Be sure the doors don't leak!|
|01-25-2012 10:35 AM|
|Abdul-Hakeem||I had a bad bolt on one of the doors (the bolts used for door removal), might want to check those. Also, the electric connector things you have to unplug were *really* hard to undo, and not the same design in the manual. I would check all the pieces you need to use to remove the doors, based on this.|

Getting ready to buy a new 2012 Wrangler.
Greetings all, I've been wanting a jeep for a long while now, with my truck fully paid off and about to start depreciating like mad, and the new 2012 having that purty new engine I had some questions before I leap. I'm looking to get a Wrangler Sport, auto, with the basic features. Can't afford a Rubicon ... yet... I always preferred a stiffer ride in a vehicle, always owned trucks etc. Plan on test driving the 2012 to make sure I like the fit etc. What do you all recommend to look out for a new buyer that you yourself missed or believe to be most important to check for when jumping into a Wrangler?
