    Well, it's $195 ($175 invoice) if you buy it with your vehicle, $205 from Quadratec, $80 on eBay, or you could just throw a recovery strap, a couple of D-rings and a pair of gloves in a small duffel for about $50. Your call.

    I was not sure what it was either until I checked the cargo area. There is a nice Warn duffle bag with towing straps and the like inside. I have not unpacked all of it yet, but it appears to be a good towing strap.

    Thanks--the combination of options that I wanted limited my choices on a 2019, and I like the body color fenders, but had to have the black top. I am not sold on the wheels either, there were other ones that I liked better--but I guess when the tires wear it will be a good excuse to go shopping. :LOL:

    Congrats! A great vehicle, impossible not to enjoy. Btw, one of the fun things about being a new Jeep owner is you notice and appreciate all the other Jeeps on the highway. The older ones are particularly cool, especially when it's clear the owners have taken great care of them! (ps. When traveling I notice most Jeeps are 4-door... all good, but I had no idea I would be in the minority with a 2-door :) )

    Beautiful! I went with Ocean Blue, but Mojito was a very strong contender. Love that color!

    Congrats!

    Love that color! Love my Granite too, but every time I see a bright color I second guess. Enjoy!

    Congrats on the fantastic new Jeep. As a fellow bold color owner (mine is HellaYella) I commend your paint choice. One word on the 3.6L gas choice. It will run on 87, but it is a very high compression engine and in my experience with it, it seems to benefit from more octane - seems to pull a bit stronger, rise off idle under load better and lug the overly tall 6th gear better. Mine will run ok on 87, but I worry about it knocking and cutting power. To be safe, I have been running mine on 93 (or 91 when I can find it). The electronics can do a lot, but high compression is high compression.

    Gorgeous Jeep. I replaced my C7 with a JLUR in May. Haven't regretted it once.

    Good luck. Looks awesome!
