My new 2012 Rubicon Unlimited finally arrived! This is my second Wrangler, but this one is simply incredible!
My mods include: BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO - 305/65R17, KMC XD795 HOSS Black rims, (standard offset) Brushed Stainless Sill Guards, Slush Mats, Chrome Gas Cap Cover, and chrome side steps. (Jeep)
This drives so much better than the 2011's I drove - honestly, it's not even close, and was well worth my wait. The extra power makes it a much more capable daily driver. The BFG's are very quiet...
One major complaint with the design team though. Now, let it be said right off, this was entirely my mistake, however, it is a very easy mistake to make.
I was giving my Rubi it's first bath as a proud new owner. Pulled the wiper blades out, cleaned the window to a nice shine. Popped the hood to dry neatly around the edges and admire my new Pentastar engine. In horror, I realized too late, the wipers were still out.
Yep, you guessed it - two scratches on my beautiful black hood from the sharp end of the wiper blades. I'm now going to have to have them repaired. Too deep to buff out.
Yes, it was totally my fault, but really...come on. My Ford, and every vehicle I've now been noticing have little plastic or rubber caps on the end of the wipers to prevent just such an incident.
Two 20 cent wiper caps from the factory would have save me much mental anguish, and probably a hundred dollars in scratch repair.
