|Dmactampa||I would skip on the connectivity for a few reasons. First, if you upgrade the stereo you lose it anyway. Second, it's damn near impossible to hear a call through BT with windows down or top off. Third, I searched long and far to make sure mine had it and I NEVER used it for the reasons above. Now you have $400 for tires...|

I've got a 2012 JKU Sport with almost the same options. It is the 24S package and has the standard Rubicon Moab-style wheels. I personally love these wheels and had the older set on my XJ for years. One thing I like is that it isn't a black colored wheel. I like those, but they are as common as belly buttons here in Colorado. I kept my stock wheels and after lifting went with GoodYear Duratracs. Besides, if you ever damage one, you can find them on Craigslist all day long for next to nothing!

I was in kinda the same boat last year. When I ordered, the dealer told me that I had ordered every option available without moving up to the Sahara. It was going to be my DD, but I knew I would be changing out the wheels within the first week and I wanted the black top.
I went with the AEV wheels. Not only for the looks,but also because I didn't want to mess with spacers.
I went with 33" tires, because I didn't want to rush into changing out the tire carrier. I didn't trust putting much bigger on the stock one.

I've read your posts, and I have 1 suggestion for you to think about: don't swap the wheels and tires until you've driven your new Jeep some...maybe 2000 miles or so. By going with the S package, you're getting good tires for your intended purpose, and nice looking wheels. You might find out, after driving it a while, that you want to do something different than you think right now.
Wheels and tires will always be for sale.
Just my .02.

Unlimited Sport S Purchase
You all have been so great...this site is invaluable. I'm doing my homework over the holiday weekend and am planning a purchase next week (month end!).
It will be my daily driver, not an off-roader (yet!) and I'd like to keep it stock except for a more aggressive looking tire/wheel.
I've come up with the following build and would love your input:
Unlimited Sport S
Then...swapping out the wheels/tires for something a bit more aggressive looking while still maintaining good driveability. I want the power windows, etc or else I would just go with the Sport (and not have to throw away the 17" rims on the Sport S).
Seems to be the best bang for the buck, a great looking daily driver, and a great base (3.73's) for future mods if that day comes (when it comes I should say
