I passed on the steel bumper. While it looks great, i've heard the rear steel bumpers are iffy, at best.

I also passed on leather. it's not really leather, but more of a vinyl, and vinyl seats SUCK in Texas heat.

I did opt for the premium soft top and the advanced safety package. Adaptive cruise control IS AWESOME.

I have the steel bumpers and think they are a good compromise of strength and weight.

Leather is leather with standard, perforated and Katzkin. But a pain in a well-used Jeep to keep looking nice.

Different order the safety systems because they are expensive parts to fix and can make a driver lazy when they depend on them. And too many people don't read and learn the limitarions for each system. Ask the dead Tesla drivers that thought Autopilot meant "I don't have to pay attention to my driving anymore".

Do you get a lot of cold weather in San Jose? I live in the freeze belt and didn't get it - I just put on 30 pounds of insulaing fat each winter like polar bears.

8.4 and aux switches (tow) are nice to have.

SJ is Not super cold... but it’s a nice perk for my wife!!! And we do hit up the snow enough where it is needed.
I have cloth seats now in my 14 Sahara , and wife hates it... we have indoor cats and those seats are like magnets whenever we get in!

I have seen it and like it.
plus it comes with a gray dash, as I really hate the red ones.

Agreed. Precisely why i ordered dark saddle on my 21 jlur but i also like being a bit different with the non black seats.

Glad I'm not the only one with a granite / saddle rubicon on order!
