I was looking at the power plant. I've heard mention on some forums that people are not super happy with them. Really didn't research it much further. I'm still trying to figure out what the advantage of the CTi is for several hundred more when Warn talks up the ZEON so much. I had a 9.5TI and it was what is was. A winch. Nothing really special. I was looking at OBA today too. The York is probably the best way to go, but the bracket kit from ORO is over $500, even if you use a junk yard york. You can get a Luxfer 10# cylinder for $80, and a Powertank valve kit for $270. I'm probably going to by a 10K Zeon (assuming it fits), a homemade Powertank with their valve, and replace the winch line with aftermarket high temp synthetic rope unless the warn rope is cheaper/better. my .02

Here's a couple shots for those of you still waiting.. :-)

Picked her up last night.. So far everything has been amazing. Driveshaft is pretty rusty all ready, causing a squeak when I drive it but I'm going to brush it off tomorrow and hope that fixes it.. Had some rust/brake dust spots on my passenger side rear fender, took the tech guy about 20 minutes to get off, but it finally did. Other then that, no issues what so ever. Got both chrome knobs, black switches , correct tires on the dash plate, no cracks in hard top or paint issues that I could see.

I know its been said, but its worth repeating, that hood is BEAUTIFUL to look over when you're driving. I can't get enough of it

I'll be taking the hard top off Saturday after a nice long wash/wax session, doors off too.. and a proper photo op somewhere on or near the beach; so look for those this weekend!

Instead of KZO Delayed / Received, (get this) I am now KZT - Second Rail Departure.

Maybe the Shipping department realized that they mistakenly put mine on Genesbro's train and had to stop his train to let my 10A off to be put another train, or maybe the ever-so-gracious-and-wonderful Chrysler execs heard my woeful plea, reconsidered my retribution, and took pity upon me by putting my 10A on a quick couple of express lines heading south in a hurry???

I don't know, but I don't think I have ever felt so bewildered by what would seem to be good news

Kinda afraid to check the status tomorrow

Now that's a Jeep. Ha, same color combo I did, and I couldn't be happier. Glad u are putting up photos. And the red accents and red seats with the black..DONE well! I was lucky and have no issues. So the black spackle top gets waxed too? Everyone that has seen my Jeep hasn't called it pretty, but just
plain BAD. I just put the black molar tail light guards on and they complement perfectly.

that is so sweet- salesman called and said still no build data or invoice from jeep- i was told it was to ship the 23rd, guess not since he said after he gets build sheet it will be 2 weeks till it arrives. He also said that they took another 2500 off the vehicle and he ( i dont get this) will check to see if the tread lightly offer will work on the 10A edition. really? that does not sound good. also said that adding the winch (if a plate become available) will make mounting the front plate an issue. I mean really? I also already have my financing an they want to try and best it... gee whjizz
