Just a quick post to say hello!!
Just picked up a 2012 unlimited white Arctic Edition. I was going back and forth between that and a Rubi since the price is similar. I've wanted a Rubi for a long time but now with wife and two kids I have to be realistic about how much offroading I will be doing (plus no dealer near by had a Rubi loaded the way I wated it). I figured the Arctic my local dealer had was perfect, it looks insane in white and the package adds "some" upgraded bits. Between the painted wheels, painted top, BFGs, and side steps I was happy. This one happened to have a limited slip diff as well. I commute 102 miles a day so the biggest plus for me was some of the modern features (I know some of you frown against), its got navi, bluetooth, auto aircon, heated seats and mirrors, etc, etc. I feel I lucked out because the one I got is loaded but its still a stick!! The only other one I found near me was the really cool (but maybe become old) Winter Chill color in a auto.
So at the end of the day if things change in my life and I want a little more capability I can always add lockers and sway bar disconnects. Around me where I used to go wheelní I donít need an extra low transfer case or the 44 upfront anyway. Believe it or not my biggest concern offroading right now would be messing up the white flares
Iím wondering how easy it is to remove them and replace with aftermarkets just when Iím going off-road??
Last time I was in the scene I was rockn' a 1994 Toyota x-tra cab and a 1984 4-runner w/ 9 inch lift and 35"s. I used to have a blast and I'm glad to back ....... and finally have a Jeep!!
