I love the blue. It's a great color especially with the contrast of the black fenders and bumpers.

I have a couple pics.

I love your Jeep! It looks amazing. I am between a few colors, the blue and the future sunset orange. I also like the white, but I don't want to go for the usual color. I am torn!

Just my two cents even though it looks like you bought a Jeep.
I live in Florida.
Owned several Jeeps. I buy them with hardtops. 1. They come pre-wired if you buy from factory that way. 2. Better resale value. 3. Security on trips, not full proof but it helps. 4. Soft top is easy retro-fit, usually pick up almost new ones on craigslist for 1/3 cost of them new. 5. Rainy season. Freedom top is easy to pop off but overall it helps with keeping things dry. 6. If I lived up North again... insulation. I am a thin blooded, low tolerance for cold kind of varmit critter!

Enjoy what ever you have. They are all fun.

Re: I need some help ordering my first ever Jeep Wrangler

All the pros and cons have been covered but in the end it comes down to your needs and your preferences. I've had both and prefer the hard tops. I don't see the big deal about taking it off and on, but bring a motorcyclist too I don't get upset if I get caught out in the rain either. Plus, if my top is off the doors will be off too. Also I can't believe the factory hard tops can be that heavy. In high school I weighed at most 130 at six feet tall and figured out how to get the Fiberglas top of my CJ7 on and off by myself. I'm sure I won't have any trouble with the freedom top now. In my opinion the biggest issue of a hard top is having a safe place to store it.
