I thought the half doors were part of the package. Otherwise is mostly stickers and a tow strap in a bag that says "Willy's." The Rubicon tires are already available. And I'm pretty sure the rails...

It seems to me like they had a lot of half doors sitting around and tried to find a way to get rid of them. Other than that is a few stickers and a tow strap.

Given that he talks in miles, and he mentions trips to the Mojave I'm guessing he means Ontario California. ;)

As for the rest, I don't see where Chrysler is voiding the warranty because you...

Depending on the application, torque is as important or more than horsepower. A lot of your posts implied that torque output was irrelevant because it can be balanced by gearing. Which is what led me...

You said work is not a function of torque. That is wrong. Work is a function of torque and rpm. And I don't know what is so hard to understand about the benefits of having lots of torque at low rpm

Assuming you don't want to carry it inside, you can get a hitch and hitch mount rack or a roof rack and a roof rack bike carrier.

So 2011 is the best year for the 3.8 but 2012 is near perfect AND you get the Pentastar. Only a fool would buy anything other than a 2012.

Jokes aside, my guess is that both the 2011 and 2012...

The Wrangler sucks for towing. Is rated at only 3,500 lbs. If you want luxury, towing and 4wd I would recommend the Grand Cherokee.
