2020 JL addedd to Jeep website this morning, still no Sarge Green.

The 2020 JL Wrangler was added to Jeep website this morning, but there is still no Sarge Green.


I am not ordering a new vehicle with a wobbly front end, a ridiculously loud fan, leaky roof, and bad frame welds unless I can get it in the color I want.


Come on FCA... I got a hole burning in my pocket.

Interesting- it seems that you can now get the 8.4-inch display without the Premium Alpine Speakers, so you can keep the little storage space in the back.

So, tell me about the Premium Alpine Speakers. Are they worth the $1300? Because I'd kind of like the storage space, but I like a decent set of speakers, too.

(And I'm waiting for Sarge Green, too.)

It appears that the 8.4" screen is a $300 up charge, and selecting the larger screen still requires that you opt in to spending an additional $1295 on the "premium" speakers.


It seems to me that it costs $1595 to get a larger 8.4" screen and a $100 worth of speakers.

No, I got it to work with the larger screen and normal speakers. Perhaps it glitched, but I did.

IMO it is not worth the money.

Yes, I like some of the speaker innovations, and I ordered a used set of dashboard upgraded Alpine speakers out of a Wrangler off ebay to put in dash of my JK. Love them.

But I think it is way overpriced for the set. IMO it should be the “included” speakers on Sahara and up.

I do want to say, it’s a decent enough sounding system. If you have the money (or get a deal) and want an upgrade to the stock system AND you not going to go aftermarket. Sure, it is better than stock. Just not $1,300 better (and really about $1,500 since you removing the stock stuff).

I think you could do much better for same or less going aftermarket. In fairness, you likely wouldn’t get “waterproof” if that was important to u.

It might depend on Model.

I’m interested in the Willy’s 2 door w/premium soft top and manual. I get no option at all for the 8.4” screen. The 7” is a grand and $1,300 for the Alpine upgrade (adding it still doesn’t get me th 8.4” option).

While I like the 8.4”, if I order a Jeep, I’ll very likely stick with stock and do aftermarket stuff. I think I’d really like wireless CarPlay which is has really come down in price.

Since the purpose of the website is to sell Jeeps that are sitting on dealer lots right now, we'll probably not see Sarge Green until its in production and shipping out. I mean, after you configure a Jeep, the website doesn't offer an "add to cart", only a search of dealer stock.

If you're not an absolute soundgeek it's well worth the money. The Alpine sounds great and is much better than just stock. I did not upgrade radios on my Sport order, but I did get the Alpine. No regrets. I do wish they made it a $1600 combo like the Sahara/Rubicon the 8/4/Alpine, but whatever. I'm very pleased with the sound.

"I am not ordering a new vehicle with a wobbly front end, a ridiculously loud fan, leaky roof, and bad frame welds unless I can get it in the color I want."

This perfectly describes the thought process of a wrangler buyer. Well done!
