2013 jku

This has been the most stressful purchase ever. I spent months researching what I wanted. (I learned to drive on a CJ5 w/ a 3 speed.) I found the 2009 JKUR that I wanted but I made the mistake of driving a new one. Just starting it made my decision. Buying a new Rubicon wasn't in the budget so the sport will have to do. I love the motor and the new front seats. I'm just unhappy with a couple of options. I almost think I'm better off With the sport if I'm not doing a lot of off road. After all I live in Chicago.

Thanks everyone. It was time to give up the 2 seat sports car and I'm not unhappy with the Jeeps performance. I think the 3:21 gear is probably the best way to go from a street performance aspect. I only find it under powered above 70. We will see once I put on the 2013 Rubi wheels,tires and shocks that I just bought.

Well the 3:21 gearing sucks with the Rubi wheels. About to order 4:10 to fix the problem. The gas mileage went from 20 to 15.5-16. Oops
