Sting Gray 2021 Rubicon 392
I love my 392, but there are two things that I wish was better; especially for the price of this beast.
1) The speakers. I got a better sound and feel from my stock speakers on my 2015 JKUS.
2) I also wished the rear camera had some sort of lighting, to help with backing up at night or in low-light areas, like garages. I had a $200 aftermarket camera on the JK and the small leds that were attached to it made a difference in lighting.

Anything else you guys wished yours had, that could've been done better by Jeep?

Delivery times shorter
 
Possibly losing 2 of the doors in the assembly process.
And, maybe slightly taller, higher speed rated tires. Maybe similar to the TRX.
Question:. Is the Wrangler Rubicon 392 considered SRT, and is it part of the FCA affiliate program?
Has anyone been able to use this program for their 392?

Try the radio instead of satellite stations and see if it’s better. The satellite stations sound like garbage but the radio stations sound good to me.
 
I had a complete aftermarket system in my 2019 JL with a separate sub and loved it. My 392 came with the Alpine system and I actually find it to be so good I am having a hard time justifying changing out the speakers.

And yes, 35" tires from the factory would have saved me 2k last week.

I listen to satellite a lot. Sound quality in my JKU didn't change, regardless if I was listening to satellite or FM. I'll try out your suggestion though. Thanks. 🤙🏼
 
Yes - ventilated seats would be awesome along with a manual. The exhaust with the additional clutch action would make for some fun driving not to mention never needing a horn...LOL!!!

Ventillated Seats or Suede option

Yeah I agree With the sound system, for it to be alpine it sucks. Another thing i
Want to add about out 392 are the brakes. Why wasn’t that upgraded ? I took Off my stock wheels to add new ones and said to myself wow same
As the damn sport. When braking at high speeds it feels eh’. Smh

Brakes definitely should've been upgraded to a big brake system. Initially, I thought Jeep was going to do that. Guess not. I had the Dyantrac BBS on my JK and loved them. Definitely upgrading these soon.
 
I didn't expect this, but my single biggest annoyance is the lack of auto up/down on the windows. More tolerable, but also frustrating are the lack of wireless phone charging and power adjustable seats. None of these are unique to the 392 compared to other Wranglers, but for a $75k vehicle, they're annoyances for sure.
 
I added the vision rear lights that are 4000 lumens on my Gladiator and I thought it was a complete waste because the back up cameras night vision ability made little difference when the rear lights were on. Its pretty much the same in the 392. The vision lights would be your answer but they dont fit in the 392 bumper, you have to have a Gladiator bumper to accommodate them unless you want to do a serious customization job. Are you sure you dont have the screen setting too low, my screen is so bright I had to turn it down as it was night blinding me.

15 miles per hour.
Maybe a tune to eliminate the short dead spot, but $500 plus send in my computer is too complicated for a 1 vehicle family.

Regarding the FCA affiliate program, my dealership didn’t have any issues applying it to the 392. I used my Tread Lightly membership ($100) to save over $5000.
