No regrets whatsoever
My JL is a great vehicle I set it up with a Roadmaster base plate and ReadyBrake / ReadyBrute tow setup and usi it as a daily driver and towed behind our Winnebago Vista.
The 2.0 turbo coupled with the 8 speed auto trans is a great setup.
Being the first year of both, I...
I went with the Roadmaster base plate and Roadmaster wiring kit.
I used the ReadyBrute tow bar setup and the Ready Brake break away kit
The baseplate kit was very well matched to the JL and I measured and used a hole saw the keep the shield minimally cut for a super clean install look
I bought a 2.0Turbo and plan on keeping it a long time so I bought the lifetime extended warranty
The new engine with turbo and 8 speed trans and eDrive along with all the electronics present the posability of repair expense well in excess of the extended warranty cost

Also we own a Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with 2.0 turbo AWD and have over 30,000 miles using regular fuel (mostly from Costco) with zero pinging or any issues. And have now Are doing the same with the JL seeing no performance issues at all.
No regrets. Runs great and the extra torque at much lower rpm is very noticeable
I did however buy the lifetime unlimited miles and term warranty with a 100 deductible so I am covered as long as I own the Jeep. And I plan to keep it a long time
