If you filled up the fuel tank, it will make your Jeep set uneven.

If you, the driver, sits in the left side driver's seat, is it then level?

True, the Auto A/C is still a separate option. It is that it just became a required option on 4-door Sahara and Rubicon Unlimiteds. I believe the Power Convenience Group is already standard/included on those too.

At approximately 6 lbs per gallon, a full tank on a JKU will weigh in around 130 lbs, enough to make your Jeep droop a little on the passenger side.

Nothing to worry about. Your Jeep gas mileage will fix the 5/8" issue quickly!

Don't know about y'all, but, I get better mpg with the AC off. Oh...and btw, turning the AC off turns the light off, but, it doesn't turn the AC off. You can still hear/feel the compressor running.
I have to ask and I have no way of knowing because I don't have auto temp, do you know if the default setting is defrost? Because if it is the a/c is always engaged on defrost to help keep humidity under control and help keep windows from fogging. I don't know if that's what's happening but is a possibility.

I'm sure it is working as designed. I'm also confident that design is best in most cases. But virtually all vehicles made in the last 20 years or so have taken away the driver's ability to decide on his or her own when the compressor should run. That's the part I have issue with. The Wrangler has dragged its tires on many technological changes, to the delight of its buyers. When I have to move from my TJ to a JKU, there will be many positives, but the negative will be loss of much of the simplicity that I love.

Ahh got you, that I can understand. Simplicity is going the way of the dinosaur which just means cost. Complication always means cost. Cost when you buy it and definitely if it needs fixing.

I am also amazed in this day that custom ordering still isn't available. Packages make sense for people who don't know the product well but it doesn't seem like it would be too crazy to accept custom orders into the system. They could generate a barcode that is read along the way to determine what parts & pieces are added to make the build. There are pieces that I like from almost each trim level/edition but I don't really like any in its entirety, I would love to be able to Frankenstein my own build from the line. Of course I am not an assembly line engineer either. It just seems like some of the American "can do" is gone.

Not sure. Don't understand why it works one way with auto start and a different way when you don't.
