    Thanks man! So why did you get the off road then? :D

    Seriously though, I wanted the sport to start out until I learned about the locker. Then I wanted the or, but wanted the JBL. Only truck I could find with the JBL was the sport and it was equiped exactly the way I wanted it originally so it just felt right. I dont do hard core off roading and figured I'm already getting a 4x4 so it wasn't necessary. Sometimes I do wish I had gotten the or, but I love my blue tooth and use it every day. Had the truck for just over a month now and haven't used the 4x4 except on a gravel driveway one day just to try it out. So I guess I made the right decission.

    X2, I'll just buy the 200$ colormatch grill and a flat black rear bumper that I can paint (no need for a fake hood scoop, I would feel so bad having that on my truck) and I'll get what I was looking for from the sport edition.

    No way to add all the OR goodies to a sport though...

    I got the offroad because I didn't want to buy a new truck then go tearing apart the drivetrain just to add lockers. For the kind and frequency off offroading I do I will be jsut fine as is. If I was into hardcore stuff I would have bought a Sport for looks then I would to a Wrangler behind it.
