2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon -
I am in the early stages of trading in for a 2019 or 2020 Rubi. I love the idea of the Sky one-touch top and am 99% sure that is a "must have" for me. I test drove a 2020 Rubi yesterday with the 2.0 turbo and 8 speed auto tranny. Seems like most of the Jeeps I am looking at in my area have that engine. The one I drove had nearly every other package available and drove really good. I was less than impressed with the salesman, but guess I shouldn't be shocked that he didn't know squat about the options, colors available, really anything. All that to say, it looks like ordering exactly what I want is the best option. Any advice? Should I drive another one with the 3.6L V6 for comparison purposes? I am undecided on exterior color.

Fall is coming and I can just imagine driving around town with the family with the top open, rear quarter panels removed, and big smiles on our faces.
I ordered my 2019 JKU Rubicon from the Factory with every option but the smokers kit. I live in Vegas and the Sky One-touch top is amazing. Just got back from a 3000 mile trip thru Nevada and California and even went to the beginning of the Rubicon trail. The ability to open/close the roof on demand is a fun option. I went with the 3.6L V6 option - lifted with 35" and I'm getting 18 MPG's -- I am shocked!!

I suggest driving both as well. I drove a turbo around for 3 days while my V6 was getting tires/tint/clear bra etc. after I purchased it and was very happy I went with the v6 after the time driving the turbo. I really like the responsiveness of the v6 and, yes the turbo gets better gas mileage, but didn't drive as nicely in my opinion.

your jeep sounds like the one I just got - 2020 JLUR with the 2.0T and sky one touch top. Absolutely love it - the sky one touch is worth every penny.
