I am really happy and would not change the set up at all. The 2.5 Teraflex kit is very well reviewed and drives/handles great. I think it is a noticable improvement over stock. I have weight from bumpers and hardtop and it still sits perfectly in my opinion.

The tires are 33s and I didn't have to change any gears. The Duratracs are much quieter than the stock rubi mud terrains. As far as MPGs, i'm driving mostly highway and some stop n go, and I average about 16.8-17 depending on how hard I push it.

I absolutely love the Sahara Tan color and I could not have settled for any other color (In fact, when I heard that the tan was going to be discontinued, I rushed to my local dealer to order one). The second color that I like is the light green which will be offered very soon. One last thing to say for Sahara Tan lovers, if you are in the market of buying and you truly want the Tan, look for it at all dealerships because someone must have it. If I was unable to get the Tan Rubi, I would have looked for it everywhere and I would have even paid couple of thousands extra to get what I want because the Tan Rubi is truly a rare off-roading machine!

I got my sahara tan jku a couple weeks ago and I love the look and ride! My dealer had to bring it in from another location. Last time I checked they had a tan rubi in salina, ks. I think the dealership was named Marshall.

with the internet these days, there is no reason to buy local anymore. I went to carmax outside of atlanta and drove back to Orlando in my new 2010 wrangler last year. I saved over $4,000 over what i could have got locally and it was the color and hardtop i wanted, and only $150 doc fee. all that for a day of my time

Picked up my wifes 2012 Sahara Tan Unlimited two weeks ago. We had been thinking about one for a little while but I found out that Sahara Tan was being discontinued while she was in Paris. Got in touch with a local dealer that did a search for me and found one that matched our desired needs plus one extra option, which I've learned to live with. Put down the deposit and had it brought from TN to IL two days later.

And she's only 3 and a half weeks old. I fell in love when I saw her perched up on the rack above all the others. It sit out front for 4 months before I finally made myself trade my Black Sahara TJ.

Sahara Tan is an awesome color. Of all the 2012 color options...it was my #1 choice. If Mango Tango would have been available for 2012....it would have been a really tough call.

Truly my favorite color scheme. Missed out on these as I will be buying in late December. Bummer. None on lots 200 miles around me in my build criteria. Enjoy them all who posted they are hot looking cars.

I finally located my Sahara Tan about a 4 hour drive from where I live. Does anyone know why they stopped making a color that is obviously popular?
