So I have 500 miles on the Jeep. 2012 Rubicon Unlimited, black/black, 6 Speed, 730 Radio, Auto climate, soft top....
1st I want to say you all suck
I had no clue I'd get the bug to accessorize this thing like this. Every damn day I'm looking up parts and ideas. I ride MX and I thought that was addicting, nothing like this Jeep thing.
I traded in a 2007 Chevy Avalanche LTZ so thats my comparison model.
Headlights- There really not that bad at all, my Chevy was way worse. I'll most likely add better bulbs but no hurry. This is based on street driving at this point.
Stereo- It's not great at all. I did add the the Polks to the sound bar and did the pillow insulation. Tons better. The system sounds better at higher volumes for sure. Based on no real accoustics in the Jeep I'm not sure how much better it can get. FYI I drove the new Jeep Grand Cherokee with the same system and it was tons worse than the Jeep.
6 Speed- I office from my house so no commute, hence the 6 speed. I love it, I smile like crazy.
Engine- I never drove an older model to compare. This engine has no issues at all, plenty of horses for my driving.
Overall I'm thrilled with it. It's my "mid life crisis" vehicle and it's great to feel like your actually driving again vs. crusing around. As my body wears out from riding MX I see doing more and more offroading in the Jeep.
So I'm more than ahppy with this thing.
Mods so far-
Pold Audio Speakers
Mopar Fule Door
Mesh Grill Guard Inserts- On Order
Damn I hate to think about it...... Too many in mind
This board has been an excellent source of information and depression as I see what you all are doing with your Jeeps. And FYI, I keep waving like you all demand and nobodys waving back
