Yup i got the emblem on ebay. Heres some tips i got from kramer2k member on the site not in his exact words.

1. Heat the emblem up with a hairdyer
2. Get some fishing line and wrap it around your fingers like you are going to floss your teeth and then use a sawing motion to take the letters off.
3. Heat up the left over 3m sticky tape and peel off with fingers
4. Use rubbing alcohol to clean up the surface
5. Stick on the new emblem
6. Sit there and go wow this looks 100% better why didnt i do this the first day i got my jeep

I just got mine through a dealer trade also. I was pretty excited about it, didn't even care if I saw it first. Its a billet 2013 Unlimited Sport.

Power convenience
Power locks
Connectivity group
Auto trans (slap shift)
Hard freedom top

This is my first jeep and it's been a blast. It's a little dirty in the pics.. Cuz it's a jeep.

Already done a few thinks. Got smoked turn signals and corner lights, smoked LED tail lights, side rails, grab handles, and a hitch since it didn't come with one. The dealer said they would thrown in a hitch "at cost" then said it would be $515 at cost because it Mopar. I got a rugged ridge new one on eBay for $70. It was only 4 bolts so I installed it myself.

I have the black jeep emblem on the way as well! I saw that if you mount it upside down that it spells "beer". Not sure if I want to do it though.

Yikes... boy did they lie about that! The hitch was the last part of the deal when we got my jkur. They claimed a retail price of $199. We got it wired up too, all for nothing! The wiring is the biggest part and it sounds like you don't have that?

The hitch is cheap. The wiring harness is the majority of the cost. Then there is labor. That's a correct price for the hitch installed. I always rounded to 550 then when the paper work went through they would see a small difference in cost which is nice to see.

You can get a hitch and harness for $90 shipped from Qtec.

That is what I put on my Jeep. Very easy to install.

picking up my first jeep billet colored in just a few hours can't wait! I got to look at one at another dealer and after seeing it I feel i made the right color choice. 2013 wrangler unlimited/auto/hardtop/23s package and running boards. Feel it's a good start, I will add things as soon as I can come up with more money!

Christmas in March!

I picked up mine today!! Ordered 2/21, delivered 3/14...super fast. I found the best salesperson to work with; if you're looking for a good dealership in the Chicago area I will be happy to share my experience. I will post a few pics.

There seems to be some confusion about the shocks installed with the Max Tow package; mine are red.

Complete:
- Wheel locks (whoohoo!! First mod!!)

Planned:
- AEV 2.5xt
- Pintlers
- Geometry correction
- AEV tire carrier mounted on the stock bumper (please let me know if anyone is aware of a reason not to do this)
- Delta quadrants
- Superchips Flashcal (I posted a question about this but didn't get a response)
- maybe smokes for the brakes and turn signals
- stock grab handles
- try my hand at wheeling

Delivered

I know I was curious how long things would take, so I thought I'd chime in as well. Ordered a 4 door with half doors on 2/15, picked it up today 3/14. I didn't pay any attention to the "VOTS" but did check in on the forum occasionally. Frankly, I was shocked when my salesamn called yesterday and said my Jeep was ready. For what its worth, it was delivered to suburban Boston.

PLEASE show those half doors!! Haven't seen any in Billet. Was your front axle corroded? I read about some of the front ends arriving already corroded.

Mine!

All that's changed since these crappy cell pics is that the fender vinyl emblems are gone and black grille emblems take their place. That's it for mine other than getting my Drake grille inserts in place after I bedline them.

I LOVE this color.

Stroker - she's a beaut!

I got mine yesterday! Got to the local railyard Friday, unloaded Thursday night. It was sunny & 78 yesterday, so I called my dealer and whined, and he got it brought over (luckily it was front of the lot!) and got it ready for me. Picked it up yesterday afternoon, promptly took off the panels and I haven't been able to wipe this smile off my face since!
She'll go back next week to have them install some goodies, and I'll do the paperwork. I just had to have her!

Three thoughts:
1. The color is absolutely better in person and pics don't do it justice
2. VOTS was worthless. Really. It's a Jeeptease.

3. It's soooooo worth the wait!

Not the best pic but i went up to tahoe over the weekend for some snow boarding with some buddies. Pulled over on a turnout so buddy could pee. So i took a quick pic shoulda stepped back a little more. Love driving the jeep in the mts.

It is really hard to get a good pic of Billet.

I'm not sure which color comes off worse in pics compared to in person, Billet or Commando Green.
