New member/first time buyer
Hi all. I am new to this forum. I am planning on buying a new Wrangler, as I have been dreaming of owning a Jeep for years, but haven't purchased due to life hardships. Now, things are much better, and I can finally purchase one. I plan to buy one buy August, and joining this forum is part of my research.
The following Jeep is what I've built using a veterans website to find, finance, and purchase my vehicle. Please let me know what you all think.

4WD 2dr Sahara
-Exterior: True Blue Pearl
-Interior: Black/Dark Saddle Interior
-Air Conditioning w/Auto Temp Control (HAB)
-Connectivity Group (AAJ)
-Heated Front Seats (JPM)
-Trailer Tow Group (AHT)
-Uconnect 430n (RHB)
-24g Customer Preferred Order Selection Pkg (24G)
-Standard Paint (-PAINT)
- 5-Speed Automatic Transmission (DGJ)
- 3.6l Smpi 24v Vvt V6 Engine (ERB)
- 50-State Emissions (NAS)
-Conventional Rear Differential (DS8)
-3.73 Axle Ratio (DME)
-18" X 7.5" Satin Carbon Polished Aluminum Wheels (WFC)
- P255/70r18 On/Off-Road OWL Tires (TT6)
-Black Interior, Cloth Seat Trim (A7X9)
- Black Easy-Folding Soft Top w/Sunrider Feature (MX4)

Feel free to give you honest, un-biased if possible (haha) opinion on my selections. I debated on the heated seats being I live in FL (but winter month mornings/nights are cold if I get a soft top), or if I should bother with a factory tow package. Thanks all.

My personal opinion is the hitch has come in handy especially with a 2 DR you can use a hitch carrier for some extra storage. But you don't have to buy it from the dealership. They are not hard to put on and you can get them cheaper aftermarket or used. I liked the little extras you get with the 24g package. Just something to keep in mind it is cheaper to buy a hardtop from the dealer than aftermarket. You can almost always find a good deal on a soft top.
my 2 cents

I did it! I finally bought a jeep wrangler. I have been shopping around from dealer to dealer non stop looking for a great deal on a new jeep, and with a lot of bumps and falls, I stumbled upon a brand new 2013 jeep fully loaded (mostly) sitting on a lot that somehow was never purchased. I'm so happy I finally have it. Looking at my specs previously put in above, I realized how close I got to getting what I wanted and all by a chance stumble upon of this vehicle. The only major differences are I got leather seats instead of cloth, hard top instead of soft, and the color is silver, not blue. Aaaannnndd I got a good deal on it being a first time buyer (all of my past vehicles I've bought with cash outright).
So now, I'll be looking for a soft top eventually, trailers, and racks. Probably even give her a small lift.
How does the name Bullet sound? My gf wants to name it "hi ho silver!"
