Yesterday I FINALLY took delivery of my Brand new 2012 JKUR with Dealer installed 4.5inch AEV kit, Power AFE Y pipe and 37/12.50/17 BFG KM2's
(JK was purchased on Jan 31st, and it wasn't ready till last week!!!)
I am going to try NOT to bore you with all of the details that made this take sooo long, I almost did ....but I just erased my very long thread... and am going to try to keep to the point)
( in proofing this thread before I posted it, I do realize it is still a very long original post. I'm sorry)
Needless to say that the dealer had enough time to get this done correctly, and test the Jeep out before I picked it up. They put 45 miles on my JK from when I bought it with 61miles until I picked it up with 106 miles???
They claim it was the drive to and from the Katzkin installer.
I have a few things I am not sure about...
#1. At full turn in and out of parking spaces... I hear some tire rubbing. I am pretty sure it is the front tires hitting the factory skid plate (is that piece of plastic really called a skid plate?) I had the same size lift and the exact same tires and wheels on my 09 and I never had this issue. Is this normal?
#2. I was told that they did plug in and re-calibrate the Jeep with the New AEV Pro-Cal that came with the kit and that the speedo is correct. I figured it was, as the dash board speedo matched the factory 430 nav's digital speedo. However yesterday as I was driving home around 55mph from the dealer I noticed my wife kept slipping further behind me. When I called to ask her why she was going so slow, she said I am doing 63+ mph!
(on a side note keeping my shift points in the green, I pulled 21mpg on the highway according to my odometer and my calculater upon topping off the tank. If my speedo is off almost 10% then wouldn't that mean I was getting more like 23mpg!! ) that's a far cry from the 15 I was getting on my 09!
#3. I had the dealer put aside all of the parts that came off of my 2012. I am amazed how few parts come off, vs how many parts came off the 09 and it's Mopar 4.5 inch Long Arm. Does someone have a picture, or a list of all of the parts that I should have gotten back from the dealer? I got my factory y-pipe, 4 coils, 4 shocks, two big bars? (not sure about what to call those, as I didn't take them off, I am guessing track bar, or sway bar... they are black and about one inch in diameter, ...one is threaded on one side) and 4 skinny black brackets. Should there be more?
#4. This is a Katzkin question, but can someone please shoot a picture of what the sides of their seats look like on the inside, near the e-brake? My Katzkins are tucked nicely on the outside edges, but just left as lose leather flaps on the inside. I end up grabbing the leather everytime I pull the e-brake? Not to mention could someone shoot a pic of the back of their seats (map pockets and bottom) mine look HORRIBle like I had a 5lb sack of sugar stuffed in each pocket and the leather is all gathered up at the bottom!
When it's all said and done with, regardless of some little annoying issues, that I am sure can be resolved, I am LOVING this new lift and my new 12. There is a NIGHT AND DAY difference from my 09 to my 12, and they are both the same color 4 door JKUR's with 6spd and they had the same size lift and tires!!!
I will post some pics in a couple of weeks after I get steps/sliders addressed and my AEV heat reduction hood, and Bushwacker Pocket Flares painted and installed!
Thanks in advance for your particiapaton in this thread and for reading this far!
