MY FIRST JKU.... Thank you!

I wanted to thank everyone who helped me decide on my first JKU... a 2012 JKU Rubicon. To say I love it is a major understatement. While I bought this as a second vehicle, I find myself driving this almost 100% of the time, even though my other vehicle "a nicer" vehicle.

Anyway, here's what I got:

Yakima rails. I have a basket and bike racks that go onto the rails but I don't keep them up at all times. Just the rails.

Great looking rig! Got mine just recently too. Didn't go Rubi though, as mine is an Urban Assault Vehicle (read daily city driver) rather than an off road bruiser. Good choice on the color!
