Lol... yup, fun it is.
Unfortunately, like any other group or package you're stuck with a few other options that maybe you don't really need or want... like the remote start imo. But the BFG KO2s? Now that's a great upgrade from the stock Goodyears. I might be going with a base Rubicon soon and I'm seriously considering the Cold Weather Group just for the heated cloth and to get out of the BFG Mud-Terrains.
Good luck with your order Key West.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Has anyone been able to order the cold weather group with a manual? I assume you give up remote start, but also save a bit too. I am going to be bummed if it is an auto only option group. I'd prefer to get factory K02s for better winter traction.

I have the KO2s now and I liked my MTs much, much better. These are squirrelly and all over the road. I went with them instead of bigger MTs because they seemed to be so popular with everyone. I haven't seriously wheeled with them yet, that comes in September, but if they are as terrible off-road as on, I'm ditching them and going back to the BFG MTs.

Surprised to hear that Holly. I currently have the KO2s on my 76 CJ5 with a 2.5 lift and love them... both on and off. Before that I've run plenty of sets of the "original" BFG All Terrains on various 4x4s and 2wd work trucks and have nothing but love for them.

I'm surprised too! EVERYONE loves the KO2s. My previous car was a 2010 Camaro 2SS, so I really got used to sticking to the pavement. I would have thought it was the lift I added, but I drove a little over 900 miles after the lift was installed before I changed out the tires from the stock MTs. They are just all over the road. Like I'm driving during a windy day without any wind.

I ordered a Willys and asked if I could add heated seats and remote start as options. I was told it wasn't an option on the Willys

That's sounds, unfortunately, consistent with what's stated in SeaJay's attachment (available on Sport S and base Rubicon only).

There is no difference in the drive train, nor in any of the design. So, I would expect about the same; poor.

What size KO2's do you have and what PSI are your running them at?

Maybe too much air for the given size? That will make them seem "floaty" on the highway for sure!

Anyone manage to get a copy of the order guide?

My Google-foo is failing me and I can't find one anywhere.

34x10.5x17 at 37 psi.

I used to run my MTs at 40...I know...no need to scold.
