Joining the JK ranks

Upgraded from my '04 X to a new 2012 JK. Took delivery today in what is the biggest snow storm of the winter season. Good day for traction control and 4WD!

Very nice. I was really close to getting a white 2 door when I got my silver. Love both, great colors.

White Sport models are hard to find ... the closest model like the one I bought today is 45 minutes away. The only reason this one was available is that a guy ordered it, but changed his mind once the dealer got it on the lot. I could have bought a Sahara, but the all-white was a bit too much white.

Would like to change the cloth seats over to leather and have heated seat kits installed; I have no plans to go off-roading (I know, right?) .... so no winches, lift kits or huge tires. I just want to tool around town in a vehicle that makes me actually feel happy to be behind the wheel. Nothing else anymore really gives me that feeling.

Is that wrong?

Very nice looking ride. Congrats to you. I agree - you need to go for a spin.

Nothing wrong with that! I just brought mine home TODAY too! I have no plans of off roading much either, so don't want to add all that equipment and weight. I agree on tooling around town feeling happy behind the wheel! I drove home from the dealer in Friday rush hour traffic, and my ear to ear grin was so big I didn't even notice the 2 million other cars! My Jeep is the reverse of yours and triple black. First modification will be the MOPAR Sahara style side steps. I would have had them installed at the dealer today, however they wanted $787.00 for the pair, and Quadratec has them for $310.00 so I'll be ordering and installing them myself! Second mod may be a set of the deep tinted SoftTop windows, we'll see how it is when summer rolls around. LOL

Looks like TODAY was a good day to buy a new Jeep! :-)

Don't order them from Quadratec either. You can find take offs on Jeep forums or Craigslist all day long for 1/3 of that price, or lower. Guy across the street from me scored a 2dr set off Craigslist for $50.

I paid $200 for my mint condition 4dr version. Bought them off a guy on JK-F. And I know I overpayed and actually wish I would have never got them. Want something stronger with better protection now. Only reason I bought them in the first place was for my wife, kids, and parents.

Hey thanks for the tip! Wow, I don't know why I didn't think of Craigslist or the Classifieds on here! That's why we join a forum. Sweet!!
