Just purchased a 2017 Recon. Having been a long-time USAA member, combined with an end of the month dealer motivation, I was blessed to get quite an outstanding deal (and good grief, MSRP was almost $51k). Thankful too for this forum for helping me sort out all the "little" things in my research. Because of that, I held out for the 4.10 (not the easiest to find) and the Alpine system. Having shopped these all over SoCal, I'm pretty sure this one has all the options I'll need. Although black was my second choice, I couldn't pass it up. Happy to be back in the Jeep fold since I sold my '98 Sahara in 2001. Looking forward to learning a lot from you all.

That's a good looking Jeep :thumb:.

Coming from someone with the Hard Rock rims, I have developed an appreciation for the alloys Jeep has been offering on most of the new models (Recon included). Many people change things like wheels and tires, but I'd be tempted to leave those for awhile unless needing a different wheel for offset and tire fitting purposes.

$51k........ Unbelievable....................


I know right. These have never been inexpensive but man, too much. Guy before me bought almost the same one, 3.73, paid full sticker. Yikes. Fun has its cost I guess.

Recon in black is the best combo imo. Good luck with it and my condolences to your bank account going forward.

Thanks all for the well wishes, especially the guy who doesn't like my wheels LOL. There's always one in every forum, whether it's watches, cars, or guns. Looking forward to having some fun on here and on the road for sure.
