I think $995 is flat rate shipping.

I've been looking to buy a Wrangler since 2000. Three cars, a wife and two kids later I bought an Unlimited Moab! Lovin everything about it except that it's freakin cold in Kansas right now and I can't take the top off. I got it in white with the matching white top and it looks fantastic. I'd throw a pic up, but it looks exactly like the press release photos that Jeep put out in October...everything except the great backdrop.

I always thought I'd be the 2 door Rubicon guy, but I got the Moab Unlimited because I've got the two boys in car seats, and when I do outdoor adventure, I tend to do it with the family. When I got down to brass tacks the lockers and off road upgrades seemed like they might be a waste versus what I'll be using for. This will be a DD and I'm kinda diggin the overland/expedition idea for family vaca. I think the Moab will do us well on our summer trips to Colorado and Arkansas. There's a couple of places to go wheelin near by, so I will check that out before I get too much into the mods.

Anyways, good to be a wrangler owner and I even got a proper welcome driving the Moab home from the dealer. I pulled up to a red light in my freshly washed mall crawler with 12 miles on it when across the way the iconic headlights and slotted grill of a CJ were staring back at me over a rusty custom bumper and Warn winch. I couldn't make out the color of the jeep, but there were (or had once been) custom flames on that rounded hood. Beyond that was a windshield which had recently been cleaned with a rag, strategically, for key visibility. The rest of the vehicle was covered, steel wheel to vinyl top, in good ol Kansas dirt. I was feelin rather sissy and slightly embarrassed to be across from this Jeeper in my rig, when surprisingly, he smiled and waved. There was a notable contrast between the buttoned down vinyl top and plastic windows of the CJ and my power everything, special edition, but there was a kinship none-the-less! I guess it's a jeep thing.

question for you moab guys. the general consensus is that rock lobster is a shade of pink. the question then becomes how do you drive a pink jeep with a "power bulge hood"

<flame suit on>

seriously tho. mopar did you have to call i power bulge. i was at the dealership and saw one on the floor. and in black in white i saw a power pulge hood on a pink jeep.

Not sure exactly where you are going...well actually I am, but I don't think the Rock Lobster is pink. It definitely has some salmon, and my wife loved it, but not pink. Power bulge on the other hand...

Anyone here have plans of turning their Moab into an overland vehicle via AEV or similar company?

I saw one the other day driving down route 34 in Oswego. It was a white JKU...my wife was not so impressed with my rubber necking.

Her: "Let me guess...a Jeep"
Me: "Yeah....the new Moab! First one I've seen"

Cross country touring with the family with lots of camping/hiking involved. I want a vehicle that can take us to great outdoor destinations in and out of state/national parks, and one that we can set up a rudimentary campsite out of with ease.

As for AEV, yes I know they are expensive, but I like that they work with Jeep in order to integrate the parts. I'm not opposed to other manufacturer's at all, but I want the ride quality AND off-road capability. Any company that can do that is fine by me.

I joined this forum over the summer to research on everything Wrangler and ended up pulling the trigger on the Moab today. Pretty happy with it so far!

Congrats! I love the looks of the Moab in white (obviously). The black fenders and bumpers give it the right amount of contrast. The bumpers, rock rails, and hood give it a great aggressive look.

Yea, the white with white hardtop has to be my favorite look for the unlimited. Plus now I dont have to spend my cash on bumpers, hood or rails. Lift, winch and bigger tires and I'm done.

Options were
auto temp
colored hard top
430n
auto
tow group
saddle leather

I like the fact it has just saddle leather and keeps the black interior, the brown interior with saddle is not my style.

I have the same options minus the leather and lockers. I felt the same way about not having to deal with the bumpers or rails. Hood was a bonus. I will run these tires bald before I upgrade. I would like to put a 2.5" AEV lift on it, but I'm worried that it will look silly with stock tires.

Took the family on a 250 mile outing in the "wilds" of cattle country Kansas. Loved the Moab! It road like a luxury SUV on the highway and gave me just the right amount of bounce on lesser paved roads to remind me I was in a jeep. We did a lot of miles on unmaintained roads and followed pastureland ruts that were invisible to the Garmin. Jeep did fantastic over the hidden rocks of the flint hills prairie and equally well plowing through the washed out mud holes. It wasn't the least bit of challenge for the JKU and my wife was able to snap some photos of seldom seen stone arch bridges and one room school houses. To end it, we had a picnic with our boys on some covered wagon ruts on the Santa Fe Trail!

Chill had I looked at this thread yesterday i would have contacted you.
I had a meeting at Toledo Assembly today. I walked from the Liberty side over to the JK side of the plant. rounded the corner and there in front of me was the offline final assembly of the Moabs. at least 20 sitting there waiting for their bumpers, Black White and Rock Lobster were the only colors.

Mine came with just the black body colored 3 - piece hard top. No duel opion on mine.
