It is a fun forum. He posted that pic (of the most interesting man in the world) because I asked if your blood smells like cologne. Are you familiar with those commercials?

Welcome. Good luck with your future purchase! A JK Rubicon will most definitely suit your needs.

6" lift is just too much for a JK model. They are a lot higher then most earlier models to begin with. Thats the reason you can get 35's on with a 2 1/2" lift.

I'm not 100 percent sure but I recall reading somewhere recently that the patterns are the same but the actual stud holes are a different size.

This is tough for me to collate and I guess I just have to be taught on this detail.

I went on my reconn today to two Jeep dealers and am going to those tomorrow and park VEX next to them and study.

I am sure learning what all you folks are doing with these latest marks of Jeep.

Thank you.

I howled at that and love being given a rash of s**t and that was priceless. And too, my friend Lia, here pictured below, from Montevido Uruguay, is here to get her English Certification and will be here for a month and she saw these post and "The Most Amazing Man" and started cracking up soooooooo bad and just loved it. She gives me so much s**t anyway, but it really got her. Too funny.



Thank you posting that. It is soooooooo funny.

Love this.

Additional questions from my reconn today:

Question 7: Ok, I now understand the Sahara model, as it was in 1983, 1990, 1997, and now 2011. Can you get a "Jeep" badge for the side of the Jeep like always has been? This silly "Trail Tested" is absurd. I mean, no chit, it's a dam Jeep. Duh. That would come off instantly. Changing out those silly rubber hood latches is a snap with the original hood latches like on VEX and all the other Jep going back.

Question 8: Can you get round fender inserts or flares or the like for the rear wheel wells?

Question 9: Is the Sahara color available after market for repainting my trailer. The last 6 Jeeps and VEX, is rattled can with Cummins Diesel Engine Tan, at any Car Quest store.

I will keep query to three questions, per page, at a time so folks can answer for me easier.

Thank you all very much in advance.

Here is me and Lia took the picture down in the lower Yucatan, going through the jungled, thick no road redoubt there. Very hard on machine and nearly as bad on man and machine with the wet, bugs, vermin, etc. Incredible country however. VEX doses through this really well.



This was 2009. It takes a bit to get through this region as it is cross country, literally, as there are no trails. There are footpaths however, but they are not wide enough to get a rig through--so, since everything grows back so fast, cross country is the easiest.

This is me , last week, coming across the border from Mexico, at a little dirt crossing in Antelope Wells, NM, in the southwest corner of the state where there are only 2 Americans on our side and 3 Mexicans on the Mexican side.

It is dirt, no pavement, and is the entrance to the Sonora Desert. They will not let you through unless you are set up like VEX or so many of you folks here in your own rigs as you have them.

Wild, wild crossing into the desert reaches and very beautiful. Very empty however.

Forget the Sahara model, it's just the luxury version. You need the Rubicon. As far as the color, the new Sahara tan is more of a cream color than a desert tan. Drive around in that and Lia will be looking for more than an English teacher.

There are lots of places that sell the JEEP sticker. The body stamp is long gone, but some people have pulled the stock stickers and out the JEEP sticker in its rightful place.

That was my first thought too, but then I realized it was an old photo that was scanned. So many of my old family photos look photoshopped after scanning and they are far less exciting than this one looks.

Is it possible? Sure, but I think it's a real picture.

So what? Sure, I think the waterfall photo been manipulated. The light source on the Jeep looks like it's coming from a different angle than the sun (based on the rocks, the side of the Jeep facing us should be in darkness).

It doesn't bother me, though, as there was never a claim that the photo was genuine. And it's a really good creation.

They tested the light angle thing on mythbusters for the moon landing photos.

Lol, yeah. For the moon landing, on a sandy surface with specific reflective properties. Not for every scenario, ever.

It you want me to go deeper into an analysis with you, I will via PM. But I'm not going to argue your point here in this thread.

Its an awesome picture, regardless.

Well, it appeared to me to have been posted to be taken seriously along with a lot of the other stuff in this thread that sets off my BS detector. Not trying to be hostile to the guy (I was the first to welcome him to the forum and still do welcome him) but I think a healthy dose of skepticisim is a good thing.

The trail rated badge was started in 2005, it really means nothing because they put them on most 4x4 jeeps not inclusive to only the wrangler. Take it off if you like. Im not sure about the wrangler badge?? Some people replace the rubber hood latches, and some dont, I offroad frequently and have had no issues with mine.

There are several different options for aftermarket fender flares. I personally took a dremel to mine and made some flat flares outta them for maximum wheel travel.

Im sure you can get the paint code from mopar and have it made at any local paint shop, it has to be available for body shops to work on wrecked wranglers.
