    That doesn’t seem to be very far-fetched. There have been rumors of a full steel roof variant in the future, but the rest of the options you mentioned will be available. It does not matter what Jeepers think, because as far as I’m concerned Jeeper is a broad term that encompasses everyone who will buy (and hold onto) a Wrangler. If you can configure a Wrangler to suit your needs, then why not buy one if you want?

    TBH - as a salesman, I want nothing more than a 4-door, heated/ventilated leather interior, power driver's seat, self-parking, 360 camera, power roof, memory seat, ACC and FCW Sahara with AWD.

    Most Saharas sold are for aesthetic solely.

    I'd buy one of those.

    My main interest in the Wrangler over the refreshed Cherokee is the improved rear cargo room/access.

    I've ridden in and driven a few JKs, and I don't think I'd have an issue with having one daily.

    Sweet!
    That's what I want. I want the Wrangler styling, but all the off-road capabilities I really don't need.

    Then Sahara is exactly what you want.... you can get it with full-time all wheel drive as well.

    Then that's exactly what I want. Is AWD confirmed? I thought it was just a hopeful future rumor at this point.

    I missed that! That's definitely awesome and unprecedented for Wrangler.

    Except the Sahara is as capable as any model outside the Rubicon. And I still believe it is a mistake some are making (not you Bob) to think the full time 4wd system will be less capable than the part time system.

    Do we know yet if the T-case mechanically is more like a 242 or 249?

    Oh, no. I wasn't alluding to restricted capabilities or to diminish it's usefulness, it's just the more user friendly aspect about it that I like. Nowadays, I'm more drawn to the "set it and forget it" features, Lol

    Sorry, I wasn't trying to infer you did. Just pointing out that convenience and capability are not mutually exclusive.

    The air intake location should make snorkels easy. Most may not even bother with it being up that high.

    electric sway bar disconnect, lockers front and rear. Jeep is making offroading way too easy.

    Any option for factory OBA?

    I think this will be their main seller.

    I wished I had full time 4WD in my JK Sport when I had it just like my truck had.

    From the leaked owners manual, seems pretty similar to the 242.
