Sure, if you want to see it that way. The same logic applies to the other add-ons, if someone wants those features, they'll pay them. My point was that if you want to have all the "features" folks have on their modded rigs, that is about the least you'll spend. Getting a rubi is more expensive than buying a Sport and adding the lockers and disconnecting sway bars. But you keep seeing things how you want, go you!The thread title was "additional costs for more fun in a Jeep." If (Rubicon) then "additional costs = OP proposed additional cost-7600"
IOW, if you buy a Rubicon, you don't have to spend $7600 of that cost you outline after buying the Rubicon. Adding in Rubicon price differences from a Sport doesn't apply. If one wants a Rubicon, and they are willing to pay that cost, then that is the base cost.
