I know I missed the LED lighting thing as it showed as an option on each.Make sure you're not selecting the LED option when building your Willys (you may not be, but it's worth warning you about). It comes standard with LED headlights and fog lights. Not sure why it's there on the B&P tool. If you're checking that option, you're artificially inflating the price of your Willys build.
edit: I built a Willys and Sport Altitude on the website and added nothing except the features you'd need to add to the SA to get similar features that you get with the Willys. I show a price difference of exactly $500 ($46,155 for the Willys and $45,655 for the SA).
You save $500 but you give up larger M/T tires, Rubicon shocks, heavy duty brakes, all weather floor mats, rock rails, and probably something else I'm forgetting.
I did make that mistake. Another thing I didn’t realize came standard on the Sport Altitude. I’ll have to amend my previous post.I know I missed the LED lighting thing as it showed as an option on each.
Did you miss the hard top head liner adder to the Willys, as that is also included on the Sport Altitude.
If you do opt them as close as possible to each other I still see just over $1000 less on the SA.
Beautiful. I think I'm going Willy's unless I can get this 5% below invoice that some of you are getting. I emailed a few local dealers asking them to call me, but no calls yet. They may think I'm crazy to even ask for that. We shall see. I'll drive to Philly if the reward is a Rubicon for the price of a Willy's.I’m a little biased… even when stock I loved my Willys.
Not even close on the tires but they do have the same wheels.Don't see the difference here, Rubicon and Willys have pretty much the same tires and wheels new.
I just ordered a Willys from 3 Rivers Jeep. You can get 1% under Invoice with the Tread Lightly program.Beautiful.

Sahara and Willys have the larger Rubicon brakes. Not sure about Sport Altitude?Following this thread! I recently ordered a Sport Altitude, I wanted a Willys originally but the dealership told me I couldn't outfit any vehicle with the 3.6 etorque with the exception of the Sport Altitude and High Altitude due to the chip shortage, not sure if thats true (I live in Oregon, maybe the order and configuration here from the manufacturer are limited to certain models currently).
Anyway, from what I've gathered from this thread and the homework ive done, the biggest components to consider between these two models (Willys and Sport Altitude) is -
• Willys comes more off-road ready than the Sport Altitude
• Sport Altitude comes with Sahara shocks & brakes, Willys comes with Rubicon components
• In the Sport Altitude, you're able to add Anti Spin Diff, Willys comes stock w/ Limited Slip Diff
• Both come in blacked out trim, Willys have MT white letters and Sport comes with AT tires black letters
Would love thoughts if this all sounds correct. I'm coming from a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, so any wrangler for me will be a great upgrade.
That being said, I plan on upgrading as I go and as needs arise. I think the Sport Altitude is a good starting point to add things.
I think the first things I'm looking at are steering stabilizers, I've experience death wobble and I've heard stabilizers reduce this. (looking for confirmation if anyone can chime in)
Second upgrade will be the roof top, would love love love that smitty built safari top when it becomes available for the JL. Ive seen this guy build his own hardtop, so sickk his name is Jeff Scherb
