Unlimited 24C vs 24S package

Is the 24S package worth 1670? Aluminum wheels (17"), gas shocks?

Doesn't it include an auto-trans too?

No, that is an extra $825.

Wow; that sucks. They must've changed the packages since my ordering days....

Going to the build site I see that you get cruise, the obc, tow hooks, and tint.
Tough choice to decide if it's worth the money.

There is a lot more to the 24S package than just the wheels. All the power options, tow hooks, and fog lights were included in 07. Not sure on the new ones.

It doesn't include power windows or locks. Does include other "minor" things that I left out, like compass, temp, tint. I just identified the "key" benefits to me, which are the wheels and shocks.

I can't seem to justify the value, but others may tell me that 18" aluminum wheels and heavy duty gas shocks are absolutely worth $1,670.

17" wheels, not 18" -- right?
18's are just for Sahara and are more of a problem than blessing...

The question is whether or not you plan on modding later. If you want to keep it stock or just get new tires then I'd say just get what you like the looks of. I personally like 16" wheels for the Jeep and wanted to go to 35's so off with the stockers for aftermarket goodies! If you think about it with that much money you can get some pretty nice wheels and tires! If that's all you care about in the S package I'd say skip it and buy some new wheels and tires after you get it home.

In my opinion, 17 inch wheels are inappropriate for an off-road vehicle and I wish Jeep had not gone with the current fashion trend toward bigger and bigger wheels.

I would trade my 17" Rubi wheels and tires for an equivalent set of 16 or 15" wheels and tires in a heartbeat.

For a new Jeep owner, why are 16" more desirable? More forgiving offroad?

Seems like saving the money with the 24C is the best route, thanks for the input.

More sidewall equals softer ride over rocks. Also more rubber options at better prices.
16's are about the best size, in my book. Then 17. 18 is last.
Don't laugh, but I thought my Sahara came with the same wheels and tires as the Rubi and I didn't realize my error until I got home...

I probably should have put the list in for others, I just focused on what the key things to me:

- Front and Rear Floor Mats (minor)
- Temperature and Compass Gauge (minor)
- Fog Lamps (minor, rarely use mine now)
- Speed Control (minor, rarely use mine now)
- Heavy-Duty Suspension with Gas Shocks (valuable?)
- Two Front Tow Hooks and One Rear Tow Hook (minor)

Wheels
- 17" x 7.5" Aluminum Wheels (valuable?--opinion above says no)

Tires
- P255/75R17 OWL On-/Off-Road Tires
- Goodyear Brand Tires (read bad reviews about this tire)


Glass
- Deep Tint Sunscreen Windows (minor)
