Thinking seriously about going all the way to a RHR but there seem to be none around here at this time. May have to order. 2 door 6 spd dual top is on my mind. Dealer I went to here was not very knowledgeable or helpful but I guess there is nothing new in that. Can I get a soft top Rubi/Rubi HR and add the Freedom top later? Is there a downside to that?
None of them out here are, and what's sad is Earnhardts is the #1 dealer, yet they're horrible to deal with.

Considered ordering out of LA but got best price in Phoenix from Earnhardt. Sorry I can't tell you much about the top question, but from looking at catalogs I think you will pay more if you wait. I'm sure someone knowledgeable can help on the tops question. Good luck.
Did you order through Mike?

^ This, if you want or are thinking of going hardtop down the road, either just buy the hardtop upfront, or go the dual top route. Adding Mopar tops later on isn't cheap, and you'll have to add the wiring/wiper.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Getting close to pulling the trigger on my '12 replacement. A few questions, please...
1) Can't seem to find a post in this thread, or anywhere else, that explains the differences between the Sahara and Sahara X (options, colors, etc). Can anyone help direct me?
2) On the Sahara, A/C is supposed to be standard. I have it, and auto start, on my 12 Sahara, and the auto temp control annoys me. When I use the auto start, I see the A/C light on even when it absolutely doesn't need it. I don't know that I've used the full auto capability since I've owned it, so, I don't know that it really adds value. Can someone confirm that they ordered, and received, a 2015 Sahara with A/C, but, without HAB (A/C w/auto temp control)?
3) I have leather in my 2012. Contemplating changing to cloth for 2015. Only reason for getting leather in 2012 was because that was the only way to get heated seats. Anyone go from leather to cloth and happy/unhappy with the change?
Thank you

The Auto Temperature Control is an option on the Sahara. If you don't want it, don't choose it.

I believe you can get heated seats in cloth as well, but I'll let this forum's resident experts confirm that one.

I'll be ready to order a '15 next May, as I have a '12 Sahara as well. Hopefully, the color Tank will still be a an open color choice at that time.

Good Luck!

That's pretty cool. Might have to add to the list.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Picked up my new Hard Rock Unlimited today. Feels a little squirrely. Just a little loose, kinda like the tires are always looking to grab something. I know it's going to feel different coming from an Explorer, but it doesn't feel like my 08 Sahara at all. I'm guessing it's the Rubicon tires I need to get used to? What tire pressure is everyone running on these mud terrains? My EVIC is showing 41psi which I assumed was correct because it's brand new. From what I've read, should I be closer to 35? Thanks!

41 sounds way too high.
