    Rubicon or rubicon hard rock

    Looking at getting a new jeep. Was looking at a 2017 rubicon but now that I've been doing more looking around I started looking at a 2017 hard rock. Not looking at doing a lot of upgrade soon so I figured that the hard rock would be worth it. Only about $1400 difference in price. And I can drop a winch in the stock bumper. Is it worth it to get the hard rock or not?

    If the options and apples to apples then something is off with the numbers. The MSRP on a Hard Rock vs standard Rubicon is around $5k more.

    RSQCON is right. However, it will cost $400 for the necessary winch plate, but I do like the hardrock front bumper and hood. Ultimately, I don't think it's worth it, unless it truly is only $1400 more.

    Once I get all my options set its not much more. And I get the hood and a few other options not available on the regular one. Winch plate is $45. Been looking at everything. Making sure it worth it.

    Doesn't sound like you have much to lose.

    You are optioning them differently that's the only way to get that close apart. I will say that no matter what you cannot buy the hood and bumpers for less than $1700 so if you want those than go for it. The only winch plate I've looked at for the HR/10A front bumper is the Maximus 3 and it's $250ish.

    when i was pricing out my jeep, I found myself in a very similar debate. I opted for the hardrock being that I REALLY liked the hood and at the time, the hood aftermarket was $700+Paint all on its own, and taking into account that I've never been happy with aftermarket paint/texture matching it was pretty easy for me to tip the scale...

    I ended up selling the front & rear bumpers for a good amount for stock parts... You DO need a winch plate for the Stock Hardrock bumper if you plan on a winch... oh, the WARN PowerPlant WILL NOT fit w/o quite a bit of cutting... I found that out the hard way, and decided to just sell it rather than cutting it up. click on DZZ below my post if you want to take a peek. Good luck, let us know what you decide

    Welcome to WAL by the way

    I like my Hard Rock. depending on how long the dealer has been sitting on it and the options you can get them for just a little less than a Rubicon. I got Mine with a soft top and stock radio because I wanted the steal bumpers and the hood is just awesome. The upgraded rock sliders aren't as good of a step as I thought they would be for my wife and parents. so if you are happy with the options on the Hard Rock I'd go with it, not if it is 3.73 and the Rubi is 4.10 though.

    i'm pretty sure he is talking about placing an order for a jeep, not comparing dealer stock... but I could be wrong.

    The 2 door hard rock I'm looking at comes with 4.10. It'll be soft top navigation and all the other standard items for the 2017 hard rock. I'm getting a great deal for it. All these options for just under msrp.
