Dude! Dude! Dude! That right there is a beautiful thing! Congrats! Your dealer was nice if he didn't charge you MSRP for that thing! The Flame Red makes it look like it has a Hemi!

Thanks for the pic, I have my decals on order!

x2^^. I have found Pat's information to be invaluable. That is one of the reasons I became a supporting member of this site. We purchased the wife a 2013 JKUS back in March and I'm waiting for the Rubi X to release and then I will be ordering an X for myself. It seems we are going to be a 2 Jeep household. I will be using an affiliates reward number on the X and if my local dealer won't accept it (the one we bought the JKUS from) I will be giving the order to Pat. Thanks Pat, and keep the info coming!

Congratulations dude and enjoy the ride! I'm a red lover and that one is bad ass. We purchased the wife a RL red back in March because that was the closest color they had to an actual red and she loves it.

I didn't think dealers had an option of accepting an AR number. You may want to press the subject a bit. Not trying to take sales away from Pat as he has been such a huge help with all the info, but would be nice to buy locally as well.

Not sure about 14's but I got 14% off sticker when I bought my JKUR 10A a few weeks ago. I think 10 to 12 % is a good deal. I did a little better because I qualified for the affiliate program.

Does the hood decal have the red outline or just larger font? Looks great! Will need to get a meet and greet for 13 10As and 14 X owners in VA and MD owners and compare mods. That red pops! Congratulations!!

I've been away from civilization for a couple of weeks without internet access and have fallen behind on this thread by about 40 pages.

Could someone be kind enough to give me any new news or rumors concerning the availability of the X package with amp'd color?

Thanks,
Jerry

apparently people are getting X package rubicons now even though yesterday and during the week we were all told it wasnt available to order yet... As for AMp'd and granite the status of their availability is still unknown.

JKU will have tinted rear top windows either way. Front doors have that tiny bit of tint every car has. Nothing really.

That Flame Red X is sick! Very aggressive!

I was kinda bummed that Jeep pulled Flame Red when I ordered. That and Dozer are the only two colors I would have considered going with a black interior.

Running Ground clearance is also higher for a jkur (10.1") over a jKUS (8"). Both have same size tires and i am comparing an s package, not the stripped version of the JKU.

Approach, departure and breakover is also listed as better for a rubi which would lead one to believe it has a bit of lift.


So does a RUBI really sit 2" higher stock? if so, that's the ticket for me as i don't want a lot of lift, don't need lockers, but a 2" boost from the factory would be great. And i plan to tow a pop up so stiffer springs would likely be an asset. I guess I'm a little ignorant. What's the advantage of the Rubi suspension if not for a little boost? I've got a dealer offering me a really fair purchase price @ 2.3% under invoice and i need to make a decision to move for him.

Thanks for any insights.
No, the Rubi does not sit 2" higher than stock. Jeep is just being lazy on their website.

If you look at the ground clearances specs for a Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubi side by side....the first thing you will notices is that a Sport and Sport S have the exact same number. That is impossible since the base Sport in on 29" wheels and the Sport S is on 32" wheels.

The Rubi does have slightly longer shocks, but the spring rate is a bit of a mystery. Usually 4 doors with hard tops and tow packages have higher rated springs.

That looks good on Anvil but I'm not crazy about it on my black 10A

A member here (fljeeplo?) has General Red Letter and red accents. It looks awesome!

On paper, a Commando X can't be had. Commando was not carried over for 2014, and the X is only 2014. I wonder what he saw...

It looks like all these X's have painted fender flares and tops. Does anyone know if black fenders and soft top only will be available? All set to order an X but I've got to have black fenders!

Also, there doesn't seem to be anything that signifies them as X (decals, badge). Or am I missing something?
