Hey I am from Courtice Ontario and I ordered a fully loaded Rubicon. Heated Leather, 730uconnect, a/c, tow package, body painted fenders and top, side impact, connectivity group, remote start automatic and it's black on black. I think the only options I didn't get were smokers group and the soft top. I have no use for it as The freedom panels will suffice as I don't think I'll be removing the top often and being in Canada the soft top is only good for a few months a year. Now the long wait begins. I have until Monday to add the 4.10 but undecided if I should keep the 3.73 for mileage. Any opinions? This is my first Jeep and first 4x4 so am not quite sure as I do 30/70 highway/ city commuting.

How about you?

Should be fine with the 3.73 gears unless you plan on going to bigger than 33" tires or doing some extreme off-roading. That being said the 4.10 gears should not make a big difference on mileage & are far cheaper to get from factory than to change later. Leaves more room for future upgrades. I'd go for the 4.10's. I didn't have that option with mine.
Did you order a 2 or 4 door?
I'm from Seaforth, Ont. & have on order a more basic model than you.
2 door Sport B, auto, 3.73 gears, tow package, hard top, tubular side steps and 17" aluminum wheels in anvil.

Thanx for the tip maybe I will go 4.10 cause I will upgrade the tires and for the $95 bucks why not. Was just worried that the $95 gears may cost me hundreds in fuel . I got the 2 door as I prefer the shorter wheel base

Nice package as well when do you get yours?

Most definitly do the 4:10 you'll kick yourself later if you don't.

Great to see another local also.
Where did you order from?
I got mine through the Mitchell dealership.
Here's a couple of pics as it sits on the lot.
Pre-delivery inspection later today with pick-up around noon on Thursday.

Looks good I like the color, that was my second choice after black. I'm on the east side of Toronto if anyone wants to go wheeling when my baby arrives

Will be looking out for you.
Goderich is only a short hop from here.
2 weeks on mine now & over 2,500 kms already. Of course the trip to Temagami on the long weekend made up for a lot of that.
