JKU recommendations

Hey everyone! Long time member and Jeep owner...just now in the process of starting to shop for a 2012 - 2014 JKU. In a perfect world, I'd get into a Sahara or one of the special editions. Looking for 4 doors, manual trans, and some options.

Anything any of you would have done differently when you bought yours, suggestions on what options to get/not get, common issues to look for, etc? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Am I losing out by not getting an automatic? Any particular radio/infotainment I should look for?

Thanks!

Re: JKU recommendations

If you're willing to fly to FL (JAX) and drive it home, there's a really nice '13 Sahara at Duval Ford (no affiliation, but I did go drive it). I went with a new Willys because that's what my heart was set on, but this one fits your bill. 730N, manual, painted hard top. It was a CarGurus ad I saw, and the price caught my eye: $27k. I'm sure you can find it on a Google search if you like.

Re: JKU recommendations

Thanks for the response! I ended up picking one up shortly after that original post. 2013 Unlimited Sahara...very happy with it!

Re: JKU recommendations

That's crazy - EXACTLY like the one I drove, right down to the (factory) upgraded wheels. Nice!
