Hey LHB...how did this look on your build sheet? Under Standard Equipment on mine it lists 255/70R18 All Season Tire. But when I look at the Optional Equipment it has a line item for Bridgestone Brand Tires. When you ordered this was this listed on your Priced Order Confirmation?
Maybe I can help with this ??

Thanks Dan....I was hoping I got lucky and somehow got the Bridgestone AT tire hahaha. I thought the standard tires for the Sahara were the Goodyear Wranglers oh welll. These Bridgestones are going to want me to upgrade wheels/tires sooner than expected =/

Those are the All-Season, right? I ordered the Bridgestone AT. They show up like this on the build sheet:

But no mention of them on the window sticker. Window sticker simply shows:

May I ask where you got them powder coated for $90 a wheel? I'm in NJ as well and want to do something similar. Thanks!
I paid $90 per tire, which was the lowest quote I got. The other quotes I had were around $100 per tire and that includes re-mounting and balancing.

I only had two options so I went with these because they were standard H/T knowing I was going to swap out as soon as it hit the dealership . The other option was additional $$$

However it does say All season on my build sheet

I guess it was a long shot to get the AT tires. If the Bridgestone AS tire is the default/Standard I don't know why they bothered listing Bridgestone Brand Tires in the Optional Equipment section. But this isn't the first time I'm questionning my Build Sheet. Earlier today I noticed that the Mopar Fuel Filler Door is listed as Standard Equipment but I've ordered a Sahara and not a Rubicon. I guess we'll see what the heck I get when it arrives.

This was taken seconds after I spotted it in the dealership lot for the first time. The dream was officially a reality.

IMG_4991.JPG

A cool memento I plan on keeping forever.

IMG_4994.jpg

I deliberately park my car around the corner of my office building and take the longer walk to the front door every day just so I can
see my car from my office window.

IMG_5014.jpg

The day after I took the car home, we were hit with some snow. Here was just the first few minutes worth of accumulation.

I made a gif of the snow falling around my JL. kinda cool.

IMG_5022.jpg

The next morning we had over 4 inches on the ground already.

IMG_5024.jpg

IMG_5045.jpg

IMG_5048.jpg

When all was said and done, I had to clear the car off 4 different times. We had 17 inches of snowfall in under 24 hours in the Philadelphia area. But don't worry, I found a fire trail and tested the JL out in the inclement weather :) The Sahara performed really well in 4L with AT tires. I can only imagine what the Rubicons could do in the slop.

I'll have some better photos to post soon. I just want the weather to clear up a bit so the car looks nice :)

UPDATE: we finally had a break in the snow, so my wife took some pictures. Please forgive the water spots.

Finally took the top down. It looks incredible.

I love the Sahara’s interior trim. The wheel, in particular, is really well designed.

I had to custom order my Jeep because it’s, apparently, rare to have the Sahara trim level in manual and with a soft top. I guess the manual is normally preferred with either the Rubicon or the most base-level Sport.

Waited my whole life to look into these eyes.

This is exactly what I’m going to order! It’s perfect! Can you tell me how the wind noise is with the soft top?

Picked mine up today - Firecraker Red Rubicon. Was bittersweet having to part with my 16 Hydro Hard Rock. Almost 6 weeks from order to delivery. Soft top missing (as seems to be the case with others) I did get the dealer to give me a "We Owe" receipt.

Sweet rig. Now, you just have to unload that crappy old CJ5 (to me?).
