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.
