I hear you and used to think this too. SAS package offers lockers, 34in tires, lift. If Jeep offered this package on sports, then that'll turn it into a Rubicon. You are getting everything a Rubicon has.Should offer it on all Wranglers, not just Rubicon. Ford is offering Sasquatch package is on all Broncos.
Well that escalated quickly!I was in the same boat as you, had a 2019 JLUR manual with 14k miled. I sold it since since the second market is so good right now and got more than what I paid for. Just check out Vroom/Carmax, you will be surprised. I casually looked at vroom without intent of selling and I just couldn't refuse the 52k offer to get the Manual with 4.88
Moving forward 2 weeks, I ended up convincing myself to get the 392.
Ah, but I have a jeep right now and you don’t. So yeah if I were in your shoes I’d definitely do that!Here's how I look at it. I haven't had a Jeep since my 2013 2 door. I was going to buy a 21, then realized we are close to the 22's so I'm waiting for a new color. Then, they announced the Recon XtremeZ package and I figured no shot on the 2 door. Since they are now saying it CAN be added, that seems like a no brainer for 2022 and to just wait.
IF, and it's a mighty big IF the inline 6 ever comes out, I would just trade in for it. Won't hold my breathe, and won't waste a few years enjoying a great, capable, perfectly fine 3.6 pentastar powered JL.
But you have to subtract from that what Jeep pays for the "original" parts on a normal Rubicon. They are charging aftermarket prices on top of equipment they are not giving you now. It's not 1:1Yeah absolutely. 35’s in 315 alone would cost you about $1,500 +/-. Adding a regear, lift and a set of 5 beadlocks and you’re way over that price point on your own for sure. There’s no question there. Good to see Jeep offering more than “appearance” pkg’s to the list of options. I would expect that it will be offered to other models as well, all the way down to the Sport once signals show demand.
This I can agree with though. Not sure how in the world a 1.5” is going to cut it. I’m at 2” + .5” hockey pucks on 315’s and need at least another 2” to feel comfortable again and open that gap back up. But that’s just my personal opinion.
