Hello! After sitting on the fence and trying to NOT buy a Jeep for the past month I finally brought one home last night!
I had a '97 TJ 2 door many years ago, didn't have it for long but it was fun. Wow this one is quite different!
I was quite torn, I'm definitely a car guy (sportier the better) so this is kind of the opposite. It sure will be fun and I think it will suit the family's lifestyle just fine.
This one is fairly loaded up. It has leather, 8spd auto, colour matched rood, cold weather group, LED package, the upgraded stereo (kick a$$), tow package.

I'm hoping to get a Bestop NX for it when they become available, some roof bars (go with Mopar?), and as well wondering if anyone knows if floor liners are out?

I see weathertech has the fronts available, but anyone know any for the rear and cargo area? Any other brands to consider?

It has the keyless enter and go listed - is this where you touch the door handles and it locks/unlocks on it's own?

What's everyone doing for mud flaps? Yay or nay?

Going in for 3M and window tinting tomorrow!

This is just having the FOB to press the button on it to unlock it. The feature you are talking about is Remote Proximity Keyless Entry.

Ah perfect thanks! I had the proximity thing on my last car and it didn't work too well so I'm not too attached to that feature.

Thank you! I've never had a black DD, they do look pretty sweet! But I think my car wash budget may get ugly.
