"Most" of the special editions are just stickers, different seats, painted wheels, and different tires. Sometimes they will have different (Rubi) shocks, or bumpers or a cool hood.
The 2013 Moab was one of the few special editions made that actually had a mechanical difference. While it was based on a Sahara, you could order it with a rear locker. And I guess the 10A's had slightly stiffer springs.
Different countries have different features. I remember a few months ago we were looking at someone's Mountain Edition in South Africa...and those came with rear lockers.

I don't know if anyone suggested this, but have you considered buying a used Rabbit Diesel for the first 20 years of your driving career? Then you could save enough to get a Rubicon when you are 36!!!
Just a thought.

|hair2831||If you are gonna mod it at all, lift, rims and tires, etc, just get the base Sport. No sense in spending money for stuff you are just gonna replace. If you wanna mall crawl and/or like the look of paint matching fenders and hard top, get a Sahara. I would only recommend getting a Rubicon if you plan to offroad a lot. There's no sense spending the money for a Rubicon if you never utilize all the features you are paying for, and they are all for offroad, not mall or curb crawling. But I know a good deal of people will buy one just for the decal on the side of the hood. Makes no sense to me but to each his own.|

The only real difference between a Rubicon and the other models is that the Rubicon has red shocks. That is why I bought one. That red color is dead sexy.
Ok, perhaps not.
And we don't call them cars out of both tradition and respect, regardless of what dictionary definitions one can dig up...or polymorphic inheritance trees geeks create. Heck, composition thrashes inheritance regardless...and if you are committed to inheritance, I suggest calling your base class "vehicle"...not "car"...and making "convertible" an attribute.

There are now the Sport and the Sport S options (Sport S has more features and options depending on if it is a 2 door or 4 door)....however, in the 2 door, you can get a Sport S with or without power windows/door locks, but you cannot get a Sport with power windows/doorlocks

Sahara = Luxury, Rubicon = off road
I have a 2009 Sahara unlimited and have to say the differences based on both my own research before getting it and what I had multiple dealerships tell me is the Sahara has things considered 'luxury' such as better sound systems, seats, etc. while the Rubicon is considered 'off road' with auto sway bar disconnect, lockers, etc. Having said that, both are considered packages (often a bunch of stuff they claim you want but charge you more for it than if you install it yourself). I nearly walked out of the dealership because I started out telling them I didn't want any of their extended warranties or extra 'packages' and the loan guy treated me like I was an idiot for repeatedly refusing them. He even went as far as to talk directly to my wife when I had just bought her a Toyota Camry Hybrid a week earlier as though it was up to her. I went from having a pleasant buying experience to a very unhappy customer within about 15 minutes. Part of the deal included them installing the Bluetooth for hand free on their non-navigation system and while dealing with the coordinating of that I wasn't very patient and ended up having the owner of the dealership call me. I told him the whole experience was fine except the loan guy who I would never buy another vehicle from them because of him. They assured me they would fix that (I insisted they not take it out on him, it just seemed their priorities were on selling a bunch of extra crap some one with a full auto shop and fabrication shop and business didn't need). Having said all that, Sahara and Rubicon are packages that are added on and you pay premium for. I hope that helps.

|U.F.O.||The main difference between them is that the sport is the low end and i say low end with no intention of saying its a bad vehicle and the rubicon is just in a way a combination of all of them with the ability to go off roading more so then any other of the others stock.|

Look Jeep Wranglers and the people who ride them are a sub-culture and in the sub-culture its a just what we say. In layman terms its a car just like a chopper is a motorcycle. But for the sub-culture it is what we say it is. A jeep is not a car as a chopper is not a motorcycle.
So when I ask: Are you a Jeeper? I am asking are you part of the sub-culture? It's ok if you are not.
