Cutter spent all their time trying to highball me so I went to Windward Jeep.
4 hours wasted as they tried to move one of 3 Jeeps off their lot on to my back. I finally told them "You're trying to sell me a car I didn't come to buy, with options I don't want, in a color I don't like."
And left.
I was ready to order from an LA dealer and have it shipped over (and still save $1,500) when I emailed a final offer for the build I wanted and Windward took it.
Just got the VIN today so I figure maybe 6 more weeks til it shows up.

Looking forward to starting the 17 mods I have ready.

Enjoy yours.

BTW - no one waves except us guys on motorcycles, and only to real bikers, not those crotch rockets.
I don't think I've ever seen two jeeps shaka each other.

Well, then you never saw me in my old Jeep, because I shaka everyone. It got a much better response in the old one with no doors and my arm all the way out, but it does get returned. A few people have finally responded to the new one, I've just started initiating a lot earlier to make people feel like assholes for not responding.

Consider the new one a blank slate to build any way you want. You know where it started and you know what Jeeps can be made to do. Why not use the new platform to make an even better version of your last one?

I'm going to leave it stock for now, except maybe getting rid of the plastic bumpers. Maybe after I get back from deployment at the end of the year I'll do a few more things to it, but as a Rubicon I can't really think of anything outside of cosmetic upgrades that it needs, especially with the limited places to off-road on the island.

I had about a month between the time I sold my Avalanche and picked up my JKUR and I did have second thoughts...but after about 100 miles on the Jeep I knew I made the right decision! Three weeks later I am very happy with the Jeep and I am having a lot of fun making it mine

the saftey aspect of your kids is worth moving to a 4dr from the old 2dr. i had the same thoughts. the 4dr offers so much more convenience....haul more crap out in the woods and take the whole family! enjoy it....it's an awesome rig

That's one of the major reasons for the shift. That and my old one had a few other problems besides just being two door that made it a little unsafe for kids. Not that I didn't put him in it anyway because kids aren't made of glass, but I'm more comfortable with this one.

Regret paying $35K for a new vehicle? Yes

Regret having one of the funnest, go-anywhere vehicles around? No

If it means that much to you, search out your old TJ and buy it back!

Well, I took the new Rubi out wheelin' today and I can say that it is a huge difference between it and my old X. The only real drawback it had was wider turning radius that required me to do a 3 point turn a few times that I would have been able to handle as a U-turn before. Other than that the new one stock was worlds better than the old one lifted. The ride was so much better I don't even know how to describe it. I don't even want to get into what it was like when I dropped it down to 4LO and locked the axles just to see what the big deal was.



So, sorry old girl, but you've been replaced.

It's not that it wasn't doable before, but it is far easier with the unlimited. As far as why a Rubicon? I don't know, it pretty much is overkill, I don't really need the lockers and the Dana 44 up front, but I wanted them anyway.
Practical def matters. The 4 door sure is nice when you have a 7 year old and a great dane!!!

I had a 93 S-10 Blazer that I loved 3" lift 32" Pro Comps. It's was a sweet little ride, but I was having to put more and more work and $$ into it and its just wasn't worth it so I sold it to a buddy of mine that muds and we went looking some something similar. We got a 11' JK Sport S package (cause it came with the bigger tires and wheels). It's our first Jeep and we love it, except two weekends ago, St Patrick's day weekend as a matter o'fact we went up north to her parents place. I figured her brother-in-law and I could take it out and have a little fun. Well my wife decided that we should take our 10 month old niece with us so everyone could see her and her mom could have the weekend to herself. Well than one of my wifes sister wanted to go with us. If your counting that 3 adults and a baby in a carseat. Plus our dog, which is our only child right now,Luckily he is a Jack Russell. Plus all of our stuff. It was a cramped 2hr ride. Needless to say I've been looking at the new 4 Dr Rubicons b/c we do want to have kids of our own and a 4 Dr is more family friendly, and I can still offroad with the Rubicon. So win win win. I have to remorse, except that my buddy blow up my blazer a week after he got it. Buried it in almost 4 foot of mud and water. :'(

Hope you have a safe deployment and Thank you for you service.
