I purchased an X model with the 24S option package that provides better off road capability than the Sahara while giving up very little of the convenience and none of the comfort. I added rock rails to protect the underside of the body's rocker area. Options include the wonderful Freedom top, automatic transmission, Sirius radio, Side air bags and fog lights. Compared to the previous iterations of the Wrangler, the new JK series is vastly better in terms of quiet and ride isolation. If you've own an older Wrangler, you will be astounded at the refinement of the JK inside and out, on road and off road. Fuel mileage around town is 16 mpg, while getting a surprising 25+ mpg highway.
Owning a Wrangler is really a lifestyle. The Wrangler is adaptable to any weather and driving conditions. Go anywhere and have fun doing it. No better power train warranty in the business and a low-cost service contract extends the lifetime coverage to the entire vehicle.
The basic sound system is only adequate. Better speakers are needed. Freedom tops should be delivered with storage bags for the removable front sections.
