ive been lurking for a little while now, originally found the forum while researching JK unlimited wranglers. the wife and i have decided to have a bit of a recreational change. we have several friends that go offroading and camping, and we needed to upgrade my car from a ute to something with a back seat.
i initially started looking at the unlimited wranglers as they look way better than other options and subconsciously i dont think i want to "grow up" yet, and after researching they seem to be very capable, if a little idiosincratic, which suits me fine. we actually did compare 4x4's from other makes, none of whice either of us liked much, and they were also more expensive than a wrangler, and so a few weeks ago we placed an order for a 2014 JKUR!! it meets all of our criteria, bonus points for no roof option, and will probably be much better offroad than its drivers for a long time to come!
unfortunately it looks to be about a 4 or 5 month process (pretty sure they use the slowest boat they can find to send the built product downunder) so we will be waiting a while yet, ours will supposedly be built in November (not sure if i will be able to access the systems you guys do to track its progress) and from there it is about three months to get here.
anyway, long story short, hopefully by Feb we will have our Granite Unlimited Rubicon and we can start using it, and of course personalising it with knowledge gained from these forums. its been a great help so far (i even knew more than the sales people here about the 2014 model) and i expect it to be if great help in the future.
cheers for having me
