Talking Let the fun begin...2012 JKU

Well after much help through the forum and much reading, I am now the proud owner of my first Jeep, 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon:

Black Exterior, with Black Trim and Dark Saddle Seat Color
6-Speed Manual Transmission
Standard Features Plus:
Max Tow Package
3 Piece Hard Top
Connectivity Group
Soft Top

This machine is awesome! I haven't had the chance to take it off road but tomorrow we are off for a quick trip. Haven't put the soft top on yet either.

Any pointers or things to know?

Looks great! First thing you should do is put that soft top on. It's the greatest thing about Jeeps in my opinion.

Yeah I planned on it today but the stealership didn't give me all the hardware like I thought they did. So first thing in AM I am at their door.

Congrats CD! We just picked up a Black JKU Rubi last week. Our schedules have been SO busy that we haven't been able to drive it much at all. We absolutely love it though. It's going to be a while before we do any serious mods. We justed ordered the TF leveling kit to give it a better stance. Hats off to you to getting it on the trail so quickly!

Outlaw, thanks. Congrats on your rubi. I am really liking it myself. Leveling kit? I need to look into that. It will be a bit before I do any mods to mine also. Hope you have time soon to break off and hit the dirt.
