I just accept the fact I will almost always have to roll my sleeves since they won't fit my long arms, I just wish the large sizes fit my shoulders better so I don't have to go to the XL tents.

This is interesting. I've had some pretty bad wobble going over a bridge at higher speeds, but I can't duplicate it anywhere else. I figured it was just something with the road there. Were you able to duplicate the wobble pretty easy? I guarantee the dealers around me are going to waste 2-3 days of my time to day 'everything is fine'.
Yeah it was practically every joint - I could tell it was going to happen as soon as I hit. I specifically asked the dealer shop to check the track bar. So far no more wobble!

It is always BIG & TALL stores. Never tall and awesome. (Apparently you can't be 6'5 and under 300lbs?)

I special order everything and return 75% of it.

Cheers to everybody, hope you are having a great day!
I had a friend some years ago who was 6’9’ and 400 lbs. he said the problem with big and tall shops is they make clothes for tall and skinny, short and fat, not both!! Ha!

I've had 3 long distance trips in my 2019 Sahara, all at speed, too. Cruising at 80 is calm when the wind isn't pushing us around. While I've seen 90 a few times, I'm happiest at 75-85 and that's keeping up with the flow, still getting passed. 2.0 Turbo, eTorque.

2 of the trips to Colorado with 3 guys, all our gear and an enclosed trailer with dual sport bikes. Very comfortable and no complaints. Seats were great, too. We're not small guys either - all of us over 6 ft and averaging 230 lbs.

The 3rd trip was a 1500 mile loop from Kansas to south of Houston by way of Austin. Had a cold front chase us from several directions. Cross winds and construction were the only challenge. That's when you really need both hands on the wheel. With the wind behind you or even a head wind, everything is manageable. It's not your Mom's Buick and never will be. I'm good with that.

I installed a dead pedal not long after buying my Jeep. Great addition! The leather seats have broken in nicely and are quite comfortable now. I'm at 42K now and the Jeep is still quiet and rattle free. I'm not saying there isn't wind noise - it is a brick in the wind - but the radio compensates for the wind noise. The Jeep does not have any issues passing slower traffic.
I rented an early JLU for a road trip a couple years ago and thought it drove great. In my opinion it felt a lot like my friends 2017 Platinum F-150 but stiffer and cornered better. It didn't wander, steering was tight and the seats fit really well (6' 200+), I don't understand all of the complaining. There is a little more road noise than your average vehicle (hardtop, no headliner) but it's a convertible for F%#* sake of course it will so don't compare it to something that isn't. Power was more than adequate, 3.6 auto there's a 2.5 mile %7 grade pass on this trip and I ran it up to 90 just to see how it would do with 0 issues.

Fast forward a few years and my JLU should be ready to pick up in a couple weeks. I opted for the headliner and premium sound so I don't think road noise will be an issue. Oh and I intend to have the top off most of the summer because it's a F$%*@#g convertible. Yeah the road noise complaining irritates the shit out of me.
