No problem glad that I can help. I'm glad they are working with you and hope you enjoy their product

No, net yet was hoping to have it today. Just checked our email about an hour ago. That was the 4th time today.

man, single most important free simplest immediate mod: release some pressure from the tires.

Things were set at 47, been feeling like I've been driving a rock, heavy, hard, labored steering, after reading the previous posters experimentation, let it out to 43, night and day difference. Nuts. Major major difference - for the absolute better.

I think 43 is what it says on the door.

Contemporary Jeep in Milford nh has two on the lot, a black two door auto and a anvil four door. I didn't look at them that closely so I can't tell you anything more about them. If you want a number for a salesman there, hit me up and I'll send you my guys name. he was pretty good to work with.

2013 10A JKUR compared to 2013 JKUR (My opinion)

One week of ownership and here is my take…
For comparison purposes:
Traded - 2013 CG JKUR with 3.73, Cloth Seats, 730n, Max Tow, NO connectivity package, NO EVIC & standard Rubicon package
Purchased – 2013 10A Billit JKUR with 4.10, 430n, Max Tow and 10A Rubicon package
I’ll start with the easy to compare…

Hood
Nuff said, cosmetically much more appealing, and functional ???

Bumpers
Steel is nice
Winch capable - Give us the mounting plate and winch already!!!!
Tire carrier ready - Although loosing the red tow hook kind of bites

730n Pro’s
Maps were crisper and more detailed
More Sirius integration for Travel Link
More user controlled options
Voice input for Navigation (Although this is really a novelty)

430n Pro’s (IMO)
Darker screen as compared to the Blue background on the 730n (Darker screen better accommodates night vision)
Garmin Navigation is user friendly, more so than 730n

430n Con’s
Maps are not detailed as one would expect for a radio of this cost, stand alone Garmin units are way more detailed
Sirius integration limited to a few functions vice the full gammit offered by Sirius
Low volume voice prompts, however the prompts in the dash (EVIC) compensate and actually make “catching” your turn easier
Less user controlled options (or I just haven’t found them yet)

Bottom Line on radios: Ordered the 430n with my 10A, overall happy and for the money, a better option than the 730n, at least in the way I use it, playing music and the occasional Navigation usage. Some have complained that SAT sounds terrible on the 430n compared to the 730n, to my ears I could not tell a difference, SAT/RADIO all sound fine to me. Only annoying thing is the volume change when going from SAT to FM. Would I recommend the 430n – Yes. To be honest you can’t go wrong with either one, just at the level I use/expect from my radio, the 730n price difference wasn’t worth it to me.

3.73 vs 4.10
Here I imagine some will agree and others will disagree, but this is my opinion, all I ask is, if you read it, take it for what it is, one person’s view and not Jeep gospel…
With the 3.73 I averaged 15 mpg (City driving) over 20 recorded tanks, with the 4.10 I am averaging 16.5 over three tanks, same routes/speeds. So I am seeing an advantage to the 4.10’s for the city driving that I do. Highway drives still TBD, did notice higher RPM’s when cruising at 65 though, about 200-350 higher with the 4.10’s.
Pickup off the line – Meh… I have noticed a bit more performance, but then again I am not one to floor it off the line

Rubi Rails
Enhanced MOPAR rails are better IMO, they sort of act like a little step, and provide a bit more of a barrier from car doors being opened when parked alongside.

Interior
Cloth vs Leather
Cloth was hard to keep clean (would go paintballing with the boys and had paint dust constantly in the seat fibers. However to cloth’s credit they were comfortable)
Cloth con – Water resistant does not mean it won’t get wet with the top down in a rain storm, even if only rained on for 3-5 minutes. Took about a day for them to “dry”
Leather – easier to keep clean, paintball dust just wiped off with no scrubbing required, kids spills wipe off with ease as well.

My recommendation (not that the 10A has an option to select cloth, but for anyone reading this and considering a wrangler with Leather seats optional) get the leather, it may be HOT when in direct sunlight and cold at first on those winter days (Heated seats are worth it here), but the upkeep on them is less and to me they are just as comfortable if not more comfy.

Ride Quality
In my opinion, the 10A rides much better and drives much better than the 2013 CG JKUR I had, I forget who it was but there is another member who traded a 2013 for the 10A as well, and they also said this rig seems to ride and handle a lot better. As for tire pressure, I am still at the factory set 47 psi, while there may be an advantage to lowering the pressure, I am not unhappy with how it rides with it set at 47, may play with the psi later.

I am sure this does not completely cover the comparisons between the two, and I know as soon as I post this I will think of more to add.

After reading this far I hope this offered some useful info, if not then I guess it was about 5 minutes spent of your life you will never get back... LOL

Thanks for taking the time and writing out such an elucidated comparison between a 13' JKUR and 13' JKUR 10A.

Just got off the phone with IAMJeep. I am scheduled to ship tomorrow with a delivery date of 6/14! 2 weeks from Ohio to Arkansas! That has to be the slowest train of all time.

I have to agree on the ride. I had a 2010 Rubicon with Bilstein shocks, that did not ride as nice as my current 10A. The Bilsteins were nicer than the factory Rubi shocks on the 2010, but the 10A ride is far superior to both of those setups. Very nice surprise when I drove her home. Thought it was just the excitement of having the new 10A, but after 2000 miles I know the ride if much better than my old Rubi.

Tow JKUR10A behind an RV question

Was out shopping for a toad vehicle last weekend (looking at the liberty) then stumbled across what became my new '13 JKUR10A (couldn't be happier). After test driving a liberty, a Moab, and a 10A, I was speechless over the 10A. Has anybody on this thread set theirs up for towing behind an RV (saw a few inquiries but haven't heard of success)?

I confirmed with both Blue Ox and Roadmaster's tow-bar technical departments today that they are about 2-3 weeks away from production (Late June '13) of the base plate for the JKUR10A and just wondering if anyone has found an alternative already?

Wow that video makes the 10A look very incompetent (maybe it was just the driver). That wasn't crawling as the video is titled, it's more like spinning out on a mild incline....

Prolly would've made it if he actually crawled instead of gassing it so hard.

You can see from 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Winch Photo 6 that the fairlead is off-center as indicated. My question: What did they use for a mounting plate here?

That was the same feeling I got when I saw it, but I am confident that it was driver error.

And you are correct, the driver is "Will" from the show "Sons of Guns" and owner of Redjacket Firearms. The Jeep right behind him walked up like it was nothing! I will try to post my video as well.....
