Had my '08 Sahara in Rescue Green and I didn't notice any obvious fading or oxidation. I only waxed it maybe 3 times in those 5 years. It looked good after a simple wash. I will wax my 10A maybe twice a year though. Well, maybe once a year in reality.

WooHoo... was able to log into VOTS and see that my 10A status is "Production Scheduled" So my question now is... is that the D or D1 status I keep reading about, or am I not even at that stage yet?

But hopefully you can answer this, as the guy I spoke with at AEV before I received mine could not.
In the same boat myself! I know the AEV 2.5" is a quality lift, but since I'm only looking to run 305/70/17 tires, I'm not sure the extra $ over their spacer lift is worth it. Plus I really like the look of the stock "red" shocks.

No worries, I got a good chuckle out of it. I still haven't picked it up, too busy at work

Do you know if the red shocks are the same as on the regular JKU Rubicon? Just wondering if the 1" - 1.5" spacer will be too much for them?

Nice Mullet

While everyone waits for their new ride to arrive I found some old footage of Jeremy Clarkson rocking a Budweiser, a pubic hair mullet, and a YJ up the Rubicon trail. We've come a long way. Enjoy.

Question Color Changes for the 10A

After being able to log into VOTs, I decided to go to the Jeep build and Price site and saw something that made me have questions for the 10A veterans on this thread... According to the Build and Price site, in addition to the four colors that the 10A have been avaliable in, now you can choose Commando Green, Dune, Rock Lobster and Rugged Brown.

Called the Salesman, he was not sure about this, but is looking into it for me.

Anyone able to verify this? I put the request in to change my Billet order to a Command Green if that is possible. Currently I have a 13 JKUR in Commando Green and LOVE it, it would be OUTSTANDING if I can get a 10A in CG as well.

Just trying to see if anyone out here has seen or heard of this before now.

This seems to work on my iPhone as well. But you cannot get red interior with any of those colors. Commando green with red would be amazing. So would the rugged brown. I won't stray from my Anvil. Wonder if Pat can chime in. Might be a mistake.

If this is truley possible I will go Command Green with Black interior for sure... keeping my fingers crossed, if not I wont knock Billet, just not my first choice.

Hopefully Pat or someone can confirm/deny this soon, my hopes and excitement are already high as it is, this possible color change just amps that excitement even more... Really want to make the change before my order hits PAINT.

It's been that way on the site for about a month. With the final few 10As being ordered, I assumed it was a glitch. CG was my first pick before the 10As were released. But Anvil is awesome though. And there are a lot of CGs on lots around here.

Who did you call? Did you ask for a full print copy? I was thinking the same, just did not know what options we have to get one.

All, I picked up my baby yesterday. I just wanted to say thank you to all that had continued to update information into the worksheet. The details for the checklist were great an had me running them down to make sure everything was good. For those of us who have picked up our 10a, please make sure we continue the service to those still waiting delivery to update the worksheet as needed...

I'll,have some pics soon!

The install is very simple. if you've never removed the grill, you'll find that there are about 6 plastic pins securing the grill to the body. carefully pop those pins and drill four small holes in some plastic on the inside of the grill. the guard comes with four screws and U clips to use in the drilled holes. screw em in and reattach the grill and you're done. took me maybe 15 mins.

It probably is the full copy of the downloadable version Wolf. I learned a lot just reading through it last night. I really like the 730N manual which is also very detailed and goes through anything it is capable of. All free, including shipping, so now have them in the garage for reference. IAMJEEP just wants some personal info and the six digit pin.

Awesome. The digital copy is convenient, but I like having the "real" thing.

Still KZN as of this morning but....




It's here!!! Finally! Drove by the dealer this morning and I saw a carrier out front so I thought it might have been on there. Turns out that it was. So stoked. Still waiting on a call from the dealer though. LOL. Hopefully will be ready for pick up by the end of the day. 2miles on the odometer.

From D1 on 23 April to G on 24 April and KZ on 25 April with an estimated delivery to dealer on 15 May. My jeep got built overnight! Someone posted a while back that the dealer gave them $1800.00 for their stock rims and tires. Has anyone else received a credit for their rims and tires and if so how much? I will be upgrading at the dealer and want to ensure I get good value.

It doesn't look like Anvil is going to be that unique after all. 1st with all the masses choosing the color and 2nd with the company using it on other vehicles. Here's next year's Cherokee....in Anvil. I'll be happy with my black on red, seems like that color was less desired and more unique on a 10A ;0) I haven't gotten mine yet but would love to see some 4dr black with red interiors on here. Post them please!!!!! I'm still a week or so out.
