Islander Rake?

I parked next to another JK unlimited and my Islander's rake was nothing like his... mine looks practically level in comparison. I know there was a mention as one of the features of the Islander was supposedly a heavier suspension then the X/Sport. But y'all know how hard it can be to get accurate information from a salesperson. It was a stock bumper so I don't think it was sag. I'm curious now as I was thinking of a BB for a small lift and level. Anyone know about the suspension and/or rake on the Islander?

ya'll- no dictionary results

I also thought the Islander had a different suspension, but when I said that I was promptly told that I over paid for basically a sticker package and Rubicon wheels. I am pretty sure my suspension is a little different than the other X's and Sports I saw at the dealer. My shocks are red. I haven't gotten down there to look real close, but I don't remember seeing that on the X's or Sports

That's what I wondered. Cool... Paid $4k under MSRP and got the 6sp I wanted. I'm happy.

That's essentially what the Islander and Mountain packages are. Sport Wranglers with a few addons.

I like the look of the rims on the Mountain package.

Yes - gears - look on window sticker.
