So thinking of adding another JL to the Garage.....here are 2 deals I'm working(both White 4 Dr Rubicon/Black Top):

Option 1 -
Black fenders
Black Cloth Seats(my preference)
Alpine/Upgraded Radio

Option 2 -
Body Colored Fenders
Black Leather
Tow Pkg

Both have LEDs(which I want), upgraded wheels.....we'll keep the JL Sahara, but I really like the look of the Rubicon!

Which do you go for?????
(Thought about ordering to my exact options, but these price increases have me spooked!)

No contest with a white Wrangler - black fenders all the way. There's also no way I would get a JL without the Alpine... if you have it in your Sahara, already, you know why.

Tough call. I personally prefer the black fenders so if it was my choice, i'd probably go with option 1 then add an aftermarket hitch. Plus, I have the Alpine upgrade and man does that thing bump!

Good luck.

We like the Alpine on the Sahara, not as much as our daughter.....

But that tow package though.
I have body colored flares but not white. White looks good with black but I did see a body color white driving the other day and it was nice too.
But the tow package is a big deal even if you aren't going to tow, get the upgraded battery, aux switches, etc.

If you ever decide to take that thing on a trail, you can kiss the paint on the rear fenders goodbye. You can put big steps or rails on it, drive as slowly as possible, and take every precaution necessary, but I guarantee you you're gonna get rock chips on those things. I'd go with the stock, unpainted ones.

I have option 2, love it. The body colored fenders are much better now that they have the black flares.

Tow package ftw.

The alpine stereo and 8.4 uconnect is really nice, but my two must have options for me were the tow package and led lights. This color combo with rwl tires was the best looking to me in person. Didn't like any of the other combos at the time (I might go green now that they're starting to show up, would prefer yellow). Really don't like the standard rubi rims.

I like black fenders but color matched hard top. But I bought the body colored fenders and full white JLU because it´s what my wife wanted. Though in your case I would get the option 1 being sure having colored top. :)

Option 1, Alpine and cloth, all the way, IMO.

Glad to see another "Non Leather" Jeepster! Our Sahara has the leather, and it is the least favorite option for me....

Option 1. Mainly due to the cloth seats, which seem like they will hold up longer then the leather will. These are really nice cloth seats.

How much does that Airstream weigh?
