Questions on ordering/configuring new Rubicon

I'm tossing around the idea of purchasing a new 2013 Rubicon. I tried configuring one on Jeep's site. Couple questions:

Can I get 4.10 gears with an automatic? When doing the configuration, the site forces a manual transmission when selecting that gears.

Is it possible to get body matched flares with a black hardtop? Again, the site forces different selections with each change.

Thanks.

You'd probably be better off going to a dealership and telling them exactly what you want.

I do not think you can get just the fenders body color and a black top. But if you plan to wheel this the stock fenders are pure Junk anyway. The painted ones chip crack and like the black ones can be ripped off by hand.

I ordered our 012 Rubi with the w580 auto and we had it built with 4:1, not the 3:73. Works amazingly well with 35"s. still can get a burn out if needed. with about half pedal.

I know they would have the answer, but I just want to go in with knowledge of what exactly I want and what price I would pay.

I'm mainly concerned about the gearing, but I think the body color fenders on the billet silver look good. I dont want a color matched top.

They may look nice but wil not take even a slight hit. For the money better to get plain jane. then replace with a good set of metal ones and have them painted to match.

I'm not sure if the online configurator allows it, but I've seen a few around my area that are setup like that. So I'm sure its possible. If not you could always get matching flares + soft top or then switch the soft top for an unpainted hard top.

I have a 2013 Rubi with auto and 4.11s.

As for the top, you could order matching flares, soft top only (similar to above), and then have the dealer install a black hard top. We bought ours off the lot with a soft top only and negotiated a dealer-installed hard top into the deal. Now i have both tops, which I wanted.
