Pulled the trigger yesterday on an AEV rear bumper & tank-less corners.

If anyone wants to buy the water tanks for the COD/Moab from me (they'll be brand new), hit me up!

I will be in posession of my Moab in the very near future! as of this morning VOTS showed shipping status. Called IAMJEEP and gave me a estimated delivery date next monday 3/4. Said it was already on a deliver truck and on its way.

Crossing my fingers my car sells tonight.

As for in the snow, they are fantastic so far. I definitely have gone out and purposefully driven thru snow where I probably shouldn't and have not had any problems. I can definitely recommend the Coopers.
What coopers are they?
I like coopers. One of the only two tire brands with factories in the states from what I hear.
I have them on my 300c and made my car ride like new compared to the continentals and then
toyos I replaced

Thanks! I love the 'MOAB' embroidery. Should have been standard but whatever, it was free.

Have you picked up your moab yet?

Well my moab is home and loving it so far. althought the first thing my wife said was "your tires look wimpy". I am going to take that as the necessary approval to buy new tires lol. Also already installed my welcome distributing grab handles, loving them too. Here are a few pics.





Tucked in with her new family!

When I brought my Harley home my wife said that it didn't sound like a Harley, so I went out and bought a set of true duals. She also commented about how the JK looked so small next to other lifted Jeeps but followed it up with we don't need a lift and tires yet, so I guess I will be patient this time.

Looks awesome Artax! White was my third choice as far as colors go: dune, rock lobster, white. As you can tell...dune won. I'm so glad I ordered the Moab. I love everything about it. I'll be heading out to find some trails tomorrow after my 12mi run.

Thanks!! They are Katzkin leather covers. I got them for free because the dealer ordered the wrong color leather to begin with (black) and told me the district manager had it changed. Well he didn't so I go to pick any color I wanted with whatever design etc. Since the stock moab edition seats should've came with a MOAB embroidery, which they don't, I thought it was perfect to have that done. They were installed by Odaniel Jeep in fort wayne Indiana.

Heck yeah! It's a goos thing i had emails proving that the DM said it was taken care of. I think the seats are at least $2000 from what I've seen. The leather is so much softer than stock. Needless to say I am very happy. Now my already rare 2-door dune moab is now one of a kind hehe.

Thanks all. I really like the look of the white and black contrast. I always wanted a white/black vehicle but about 50% of all the vehicles I have owned have ended up red so I wanted to avoid it. And I have never really been a huge fan of black vehicles. I feel like black hides too much of the styling.

The contrast is what got me to pick white. Light color wranglers show off the details!!
Yours looks great. I was torn between a black top and painted top. They both look great.
As a matter of fact I have not seen a bad looking Moab

Yea I liked the black top and figured for about the same price as a painted top I could get the dual top group instead. Will make topless summer driving easier, I hope.

After driving my TJ for 8 years here in Michigan, I decided the Hard top wasnt needed. This new material blows away the old sailcloth tops. I love the Sunrider feature. Temps hit 40 and I can pop it open!!!
With the seats on of course.

You guys where its warm can keep your hard tops!

I'll be getting a Supertop NX in about a month. I found I could get one on Morris 4x4 for about $770 after rebate
