2013 Unlimited Sport S Pros/Cons?

Hi, im new to this website and fairly new to the muddin world. Been in Jeeps most of my life, but never owned a Wrangler before. I currently have an '08 liberty im looking to get rid of and replace it with a Unlimited Sport S and im looking for the Pros and Cons of it. I want to get it ready for some good mudding, little trail runnin, and make it look good! What do you guys have for me?

All I can say is get your Wrangler and drive it a while, then decide what you want to do with it. Mine is pretty stock other than a few basic add-ons like sill covers and Dynomax muffler. I don't plan to do any mudding with it so I'm not going to lift it or put bigger tires on. It's a daily driver and it's comfortable for me. I like how lifted Jeeps look but I've been through all that with old Broncos and Landcruisers.

What exactly are you wanting for comparison? Liberty vs wrangler? 2 door vs 4? Sport S vs Rubi? Knowing that will help generate more pros and cons!

It all depends on what you want out of your Jeep. I bought the Sport S bc I liked the features it has and wasn't going to pay more for the Sahara features. I don't plan on taking it too far off the trail but right now its a daily driver. If you were going to get a rock crawler or mudslinger then why not just get the sport and spend that extra money on aftermarket parts making it what you want. If you don't plan on making it anything other then a daily driver then a sport, sport S, or Sahara just depends on what you want and what you can afford.

I bought a new "S" in 2011. I regret not buying a Rubi, as I've since become more of an off-road enthusiast than I ever imagined. If you think you'll even be remotely serious about mudding, you'll be way further ahead to spend the extra now.

i would like to lift it and run 35's and go mudding really. ill be using it for every day driving to and from base, beach, and hit the mud on weekends. I dont have the money for a rubicon and i plan on adding aftermarket parts anyways. but i would get a rubicon if i could. so im trying to figure out if im hurting myself by getting an s and upgrading that rather than another wrangler?

Its never a waste of money. Just depends on what you can afford. Just make sure when adding parts that it is something you want to keep on there because if you keep switching parts all the time then yeah that might be a waste of money.

I cringe to think what would happen to my 13' sport if I treated it like I do my 90' YJ

Mudding is very fun but clean up and the things it destroys is the devil!
