Dů, Jeep is hard to deal with
 
Dů, Jeep is hard to deal with.
First the high cost of half doors.
Then, no power windows, power locks, heated mirrors, or an alarm with half doors.
OK, wanted to expand the alarm anyway. The power things add weight.
Then cannot get remote start with half doors. OK, can add that with an alarm.
Few minutes ago, learned that I cannot order Mopar leather seats or heated seats with half doors. Dealer can install however. Heated seats I might be able to install.
Now I have to rethink this.
Not so simple to order a Jeep.
Rant over.

Forget all the power junk add your own alarm and enjoy the half doors in the summer time that's what I do.

Talk to your dealer. They might be able to do something

Remember that very few things on a Wrangler can't be done aftermarket. Half doors, axle ratio, LSD, paint color, etc are all good to get done with the deal. You can add katskinz, heated seats, alarm, blah blah later IMO.

24s package
 
:dance:hi, you need to order your jeep with the 24s package on the sport
to get the. half doors, or you could order the base jeep and add the halfdoors aftermarket, study the jeep brochure if you do order it
then u get 3.21 rear or 3.73 and limited slip diff. also you could go big
$$ and get the Rubi', jeep can have a range of 22,800 to 32k plus, my
2012 was 26.5 k and set up with auto, power package,side step ,limited
slip, cherry red, it runs fine with 0 problems...have fun every day...:popcorn:

From where I see it, a lot of these things stem from having half doors. Now I'm not sure if you are looking at a 2 door or 4 door but I can give you a rough estimate for a 2 door just looking on quadratec. Mopar half doors are 1100 unpainted.
Rugged ridge steel doors 800 painted matte black
Besttop soft doors 400(fabric coated)
Tubular doors~300
If you order your jeep with full doors you can get your leather, heated seats, mirrors, diff gearing, alarm and remote start. Then you can buy one of those good products depending on how much you want to spend and then in the winter you can enjoy the comfort of full doors. Unfortunately it'll be a little more than only getting half doors but you will get it with all the options you want from the factory

I understand wanting it just so----but need to ask yourself how much are you gonna change it? Are you gonna wheel it? Do you really want leather off road? Heated seats?

Don't get me wrong I have heated seats in the TJ but it was only $200 for both sides, I installed. Might be cheaper to add aftermarket a lot of options you seem to want.
