Just got my Black Sahara

Picked up my Black Sahara. I've been driving my '97 TJ for almost 17 years and I feel like an unfrozen caveman. Your technology (power windows/locks, power heated mirrors, heated seats, nav) frightens and confuses me. I miss my TJ dearly, but darnit I love this thing so far.

I know what you mean, I have a 95 YJ that I drive sometimes and my new Sahara feels like a cadillac compared to that thing.
Enjoy

Looks like you done good! Just wait until you experience fire and women that shave.

I hope to be sharing a similar experience soon. I am stepping up from my '70 CJ5.

Which is better 3.73 or 3.21? I understand that 4.10 is best for offroad. Mine will rarely see that.

Depends on your need. If you don't plan on off roading, does that also mean you won't upgrade the tires? In that case a 3.21 might be better, although if you plan to upgrade at all I'd go the 3.73. There's lots of threads talking about this in greater detail if you use the search feature as well.

i will tell you this..i have a 2dr Sahara with auto and 3.73s..just got deliverd last Monday.. i have almost 400 miles on it so far..
as far as gearing being an issue with fuel mileage... i would say that the MUCH bigger issue is aerodynamics... i have run it up the highway at about 70 mph with cruise on and i see in the high 18s low 19s depending..if i push faster it drops to high 17s...
But today i drove from one job site to another and it was about an hour long ride, about 40 miles of what i would consider "back road" mostly 35-55mph..some stop lights....and i averaged 22.4

as for feeling some snap...well lets see, 285 hp and 3.73 gears...yeah it does A-OK

Either way, i'm not complaining, I LOVE THIS THING..

Good luck deciding I agonized over this for weeks, when 3.73 no plans for off roading but plan on putting a plow on for home use.

Ordered my 2013 JKUR in Commando Green on 3/15/13. The dealer actually submitted the order on 3/21/13. Just updated to the "frame" stage today 4/10/13! WOOT! The Jeep should be built in a week, and shipped to AEV's engine transplant facility in Michigan by next week. This is good news, maybe I'll see the Jeep before July afterall.

Ok, here's the deal. My JKUR is being drop shipped from the assembly line in Toledo, Ohio, to AEV's facility in Michigan, where they have up to 60 days to double the price, before shipping it to my dealer. While it is there it will get a 6.4 Hemi, heat reduction hood, 3.5" lift, 35" tires, and AEV wheels. Its going to be a really nice JK, but the waiting is killing me. It sure is good to see it get past the "production scheduled" stage.

Hey everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. Just ordered a 2013 JKUR on Tuesday.

Bright white
6 spd
Cloth
Nav
Connectivity group
Auto AC
Hard top only (I have a trektop sitting in storage )

I'm sure this has been covered somewhere in the 162 pages of posts in this thread, but does anyone know if us Canadians can track the progress of our builds with the VIN/VON?

The bill for the Jeep and the bill from AEV are within a few hundred dollars of each other. But when I get the Jeep, all I will have left to do is bumpers and a winch. I'll post some follow up pictures.

Not sure about Canada, the whole tracking system is crap. My Sahara was in scheduled production for weeks then skipped to " in transit". Got my Jeep 40 days from ordering
Good luck
