Putting the top up singlehanded is a wrestling match.
The top takes some getting used to. I only have the 2 door so yes, the top is smaller, but I'm only 5'5" 110 lbs. but I've figured out what works for me. It's not as fast as putting the top up in the hubby's Miata, but I manage by myself. I think my record for putting it up is 4:47.

It is a Rubicon. Those buttons are to the left of the steering wheel.

The Rubicon Unlimiteds (maybe all Unlimiteds I'm not sure) come with rear handles. My dealer threw in a set of front Mopars for no charge.

I only test drove a 2011 once but it feels the same. However, the smell of richness is sweeter.

So nice

I did not know they matched the leather seats and the dash. Also news to me on the locker and swaybar disco buttons relocated. What is that button on the left, in front of you?

That's the button that converts Jeep to the Batmobile

Hmmm....I think you're asking about the power mirror control. Or is it the power button on the 730n?

That ARB bumper is so sweet I love it. Especially since I don't want or need a winch right now. It is mounted high and solid. Might be my favorite.

Thanks Shell!

Thanks I hope so. It turned out great. I originally wanted the AEV which is very similar, but 4WD doesn't deal in AEV products so had to go backup since everything else was done with them. But I knew the ARB was close and it is cheaper by a couple hundred bucks.

The best thing is the front license plate bracket. It folds up and down if you ever have to run a winch through it, and also covers up the huge space if you are deer hunting or just want a sweet lookin rig without a winch.

Killer bumper integrated with foglights and airbags etc.....

I am with you mgerken, the AEV was my first choice, but down here it will set you back over $2,000... even the ARB is around $1,600, which is rediculous since they are made here then shipped over to you guys - in fact I can buy it for around $1,200 from the US including shipping back to Australia!!!!!

But got mine second hand and love it. Though I think it suits the stock guards better.

It gets easier. I also have a JKU and I can manage to put the top up and down myself and I'm only 5'4". Like Shell said, you just have to find what works for you.

Wonder how hard it would be to debadge that thing. Is it just a sticker? The red circle is the only aspect that I don't like about it.
