Difference between X C package and X S package

Are their really any MAJOR differences between the C package and the S package. Looks to me like the S package just has fluff "convenience" options. The biggest difference I can see is the 16" steel vs. the 17" alloy, but could I just add the 17" alloy as an option by itself or go aftermarket 17" from TireRack and have it be cheaper that way?

The price difference between the two is like $2500.

Thanks for making sense of all that for me!

About the wheels - does it make sense to eventually get new wheels & tires aftermarket?

Depends on what you plan on doing with it, to justify new wheels. So to answer your question you need to be more specific with what you plan on doing with your jeep. If it is a DD I would say no, if you are planning on off road use, I would say yes, alloys if you can afford them but even 17" steel wheels will give many more tire options in C load range.

Thank you. Yes, I plan on it being a DD mostly, with a couple weekends a month on beginner trails to start. I didn't even think about tire options. I bet 16s are pretty limited.

I *say* that I will use it for DD, but I know myself. When I go trailing, I'm sure I will love it.

Maybe I'll just wait until they do an incentive on the 2010s. I wonder when that will be....

Is it possible to order the C package and just upgrade the wheels themselves and not get the other stuff?

I worry about no cruise control though, too.....hmmmmm.....

Do you mean the B package vs S package?

The B package does not include air conditioning, fog lamps, front/rear tow hooks either.

The B package, you can not order half doors and limited slip rear diff.

This is what a dealer told me.

I didn't even know there was a B package. I know there's a C package and an S package for sure.

Yes you can but after market wheels they are every where. Some of the cheapest will be Crager Steel Wheels, as for alloys about 4x the price per wheel, Mickey Thompson makes some nice ones. As for 16" tires it's not that there are a lack of options, but most are "E" load range which ride like crap because they are 10ply tires like for large 3/4 and 1 ton trucks. 15s and 17s have the most options in a nice ply "C" load range tire.
