Anyone also own a Wrangler?

I'm getting ready to order a Wrangler. Well, I was ready to order one and then decided to wait a couple weeks to get a 2016. I have the big things decided on but have questions about the little things.

Model: Unlimited - Rubicon
Color: Hydro Blue Pearl Coat
Transmission: Manual


What I need help with
Radio: Do I get the 430 or the 730? Is the 730 really that much cooler?
Connectivity package: Do I need that with the 430 or 730 if I want to use my phone for bluetooth music?
Airbags: Should I go with the side airbags? How are these vehicles in crashes anyway?


Anything else I need to know? I've never ordered a car before, or actually purchased a new car. Wranglers have such low depreciation I've also considered leasing but we'll see.

I would get all the telematics and safety upgrades available. The Wrangler has come a long way, but it still rough around the edges., on purpose, of course. If you're planning on long-term ownership, the small comforts will make a big difference down the road. Is there a diesel option for the 2016's? We own a 2015 GC Overland with the EcoDiesel. What a wonderful engine. It gets 30mpg highway and about 24 mpg mixed driving. BTW, since the Wagoneer got pushed back to 2018-19, I'm also looking at a Rubicon Unlimted Hardrock. I just started considering packages and options, but I'm not in a big hurry. I'll probably put in an order in the fall.

2006 Limited, Light Khaki Metallic, Light Graystone/Dark Khaki Leather, HEMI, QDII, Rear DVD, REC Nav w/09 Database, woody side, EGR hood deflector, AEM Gun Metal Brute Force CAI, tilting rearview mirrors.
