JK ordering advice

I am about to order a new rubicon 2DR. So far I am looking at one with a 6S and soft top. I want the options connectivity group,deep tint screen and alpine. My question is for anyone who has one or has had both, is the Alpine worth it or should I just save my money. Also deep tint screen will give me tinted windows on the soft top right?

Putting in an aftermarket head unit will cost $250+ in JUST connectors, I spent $800 to put a $300 aftermarket kenwood head unit in my JK. If i were doing it again, I would probably just get the 430 and the alpine package. Also I don't lock my jeep, so the stock look is a better theft deterrent (soft top windows are $$ to replace if someone cuts them to get in..) The OEM amp mounts under your steering wheel, and its a 5 channel. It wont blow away a true aftermarket system, but it is better per $$ than what you can do aftermarket for the same price (provided you cant do all the work yourself). If you put $2000 radio's in your car, you wont like it. If you just want to hear it with the top off, the alpine upgrade is plenty good enough for the price. Im starting to regret not getting it.

I have the Alpine upgrade on my 2014. I knew that I would be tweaking it after the fact. Sound is a very objective thing, as everyone's idea of quality is different.
That said, I wanted to keep the factory HU as well as sub enclosure so I elected to get it.
I changed out the Amp, speakers, and the sub to the tune of $2000.00 and now it will make my ears bleed at 70mph with the top off!!!

FYI, the 2015 Alpine is rumored to sound significantly better than the 2014 with all the changes they made.

You might want to sneak down to the dealer and have a listen...
