I vote for 4 door JLUR in Sarge Green.
I vote sarge green too. Though you have to change the red dash.

But really just follow your heart. I really like silver too. I thought silver looked the best when I was shopping. But when I saw Ocean Blue in person I didn’t have a choice. I just knew it was the color for me.

Definitely go for the 4-door. As for color... the only opinion that matters is yours. Just make sure you check them out in person first.

The diesel was around 3k more over the V6. Worth every penny i promise you
I have had every different motor Jeep offered and never owned or driven a diesel before.
Can you answer a few quick question for me?
-At idle with Jeep naked any diesel smells or high chatter noise?
-From a dead stop and stomp the gas (AUTOTM) can you feel the torque?
-Avg MPG
-Does it crawl in low any better than the V6 or 4 Cyl
Read from car and driver this is the engine to get and keep for a longtime and I about to pull the trigger on a new 2020 Rubicon diesel.
Sorry to HJ thread.

But seriously, get what makes you happy. I concur with viper’s suggested packages—must haves for me (plus bum warmers, gotta have those because they extend the doors off season).

I forgot about the heated seats, heated steering wheel, remote starter. I originally thought the heated steering wheel was a little gimmicky until it came on when I used the remote starter. Can't live with out it now when it's freezing out. +1 on the Cold Package!

1. No
2. Yes Almost feels instantly
3. Only town driving since I’ve been in quarantine but around town I get around 22 to 24mpg since I’m not stopping much. Not bad for 37s and a lift. On Highway I expect to avg around 25 possibly more.
4. Haven’t went crawling yet but based on the initial impressions I can expect it to be much better.

I think I’d want the extra room, especially for longer road trips and camping. Longer wheelbase will ride better too. Resale would be easier and likely garner a better value retention.

If I ordered now, I’d probably get the Recon 4dr.

I agree. My Wrangler heated seats on low are hotter then my other cars on high. They heat quickly and coverage is excellent. Great coverage to get the circulation going if you have a sore back.
