The top changed in 2011. The side windows are the same otherwise I think the new top 2011+ have a slightly wider rear window

I paid 23300 for everything on a 2012 Sport. Has the 17" wheels, AC, leather wrap steering wheel, remote door locks and power windows. I did not get a hard top which I kind of regret now. Soft top has been fine so far this winter though.

Soft top should be fine, I have both for my 04 and the hard top sits on a shelf in the garage year round. MY 12 came with just the hard top, I have left it on thru the winter, just bought the soft top for it and as soon as it warms up and I have some help to take the hard top off it will also sit on the shelf.

Check with your bank or online for the interest rate you can get. Then don't let dealer charge you higher than that. when we bought ours in December I knew my interest rate. Dealer tried to sign me up for a loan 3 points higher, when I told them I'd be back from bank with a check for the jeep, they dropped the rate to match. Had I signed the higher loan through them they would have made more on the financing than the sale.
As long as you sell your vehicle within (I think) 90 days, you still only pay sales tax on the difference. You don't have to trade in to get this.

Hmm, so will older top fit then? Just different windows which means main top will fit?

i would go for sport s, i would think you'd regret not having the options..if you have any doubts that you want the options, then do it.

do you have to have a new 13? i spent a few months looking and was able to find a 12 at an independant dealer. scored a great deal, as it already took its hit when it rolled off the lot last year. i just missed a 12 sport s back in december by a few hours, but scored a 12 sahara few weeks ago. worth the wait and work if your not 100% needing a new JK. factory warranty transferred to me as well. if your into this, the scenario you want is: someone trading their 12 into a non-jeep dealership. for example, in my situation, range rover will only have range rovers on their lot. they sold it cheap to an independant dealership, and i was able to score it cheap too. if my sahara was at a jeep dealership they would have priced it $3500-$4000 more, as they can slap a pretty 'certified pre-owned' sticker on it.

Any of the Jk soft tops will work but you have to have all of the door surrounds. 07-09 tops tuck into the door surrounds 2010 11 use a cable system ,easier to fold, and 12 13 have a bigger back window. As long as you get all the parts it will work.
