Picked her up today! First time in a wrangler and I absolutely love it. The whole wind noise and rough ride is something I’m used to as I have a small 2 door coupe (g35). In fact, I think it’s quieter and smoother than my other car so it’s def a plus on both aspects.

It feels just like the JK when the side and rear windows were out, without the flutter and noise from the sail panels. Better visibility.

Don’t know about the center cap.

You would take the center cap out of the wheel you are replacing and put it on the spare. Only ever need 4 centers.

2018 Ocean Blue Sahara
Picked mine up yesterday! My order took an extremely short 18 days from order to delivery, which I hope is a good sign for everyone else. I put on about 150 miles so far, really enjoying the ride! Thought the drive and handling would be a lot different than my '15 Cherokee Altitude, but it's really not. The wind noise isn't any worse, in my opinion, and the ride might be a little stiffer, but it's just as smooth. Took it headlong at 75mph into 25mph winds and although the push of the wind was more noticeable through the steering wheel it was almost exactly the same experience with other vehicles I have owned. The wind noise seemed to increase as I slowed down between 45-60 mph, but who cares? It's a Wrangler! Had to chase the sun for a few miles, but finally got a few non-overcast pics of the Ocean Blue

Sweeeet. Was it already on the dealer order/allocation, or totally your order? That is fast!

Just picked up baby girl yesterday, it's been raining all day yesterday into today and is still currently raining, went to move her this morning and noticed rain drops in the cup holder so I look up and see it coming inside :swear: I've ofcourse heard about this in older generations but thought these issue were addressed for the jl ugh just hope it's a one time thing and not a constant issue(tops weren't taken off )

That is definitely not good news. I'd suggest removing them and reattaching in case they weren't put on correctly. Might not be a bad idea to have the dealer look at it either. Looks great though!

Yeah, just put a dent in my excitement! I hit up my dealer right away would've went in today but says he has no one there to service it

I agree, try to take them off and check out the seals. Make sure you put the passenger one back in first. If that doesn't work definitely take it to the dealership to check it out. I have had mine for a month in LOTS of rain and no problems yet. :please:
