Congrats!! There's no code, you should post it, some people will find it helpful :-). I posted my price and options...

Congratulations!!

They aren't discussing that stuff in the 2013 thread? We are Crush Crazies in here - we love hearing anything about Crush Jeeps. (Well, okay, we pretty much enjoy discussing an incredibly wide array of topics!!!! )

If theres no differences between 2012 and 2013, which I believe there aren't, then i'd rather have it sooner than later. If they can find one for me from a dealership and bring it in, i'd have it sooner than ordering it and going through the whole build process and waiting.

Hello Steph, and everyone! I do live in Cincinnati, but ordered from a dealer in Northern Kentucky. I'll write it up the story and post it when I finish.

I like them. Unfortunately, I have had Plantar Fascia release surgery on my left foot so I have to be very careful that my shoes have really good support. I love Vans & Converse and can't wear either

That's one reason I wear my running shoes to work, I can't even wear flip flops unless they are the Reef brand with cushioned heel.

I had problems with that too!! I have a pair of Olu Kai flip flops I wear at home all summer and I wear Danskos around the house all winter. I couldn't wear these new ones for long periods of time, but they will be cute for quick errands!

They are actually men's shoes! I have a super narrow foot and cannot believe they fit. The company sent the wrong size last week. (Well, they had them listed as women's shoes online and when they arrived they were men's.) I called to tell them. They sent me a pair in the women's equivalent and gave me a $10 credit toward them!!! So, I spent $10 less than I originally planned!!! Worked for me!!!

I also have plantar ligament problems but had a foot doc make me some orthotics which I can transfer to any shoe I'm wanting to wear. I'm now fine with so called 'tennis shoes' but I can't seem to wear any but New Balance..

I did physical therapy, Cortisone shots, a sleeping boot to keep my foot flexed and then they casted it for 6 weeks. It refused to go away so after 18 months of treatment I had the surgery.

It went great and I've had no problem since. I can run again and it doesn't bother me. The only downside is I have to be careful with what shoes I wear and not go barefoot. If I am not careful my arch and entire outside of my foot starts to get very sore.

I've pushed it a few times, usually at the lake when I'm barefoot in the boat and then I can tell I've overdone it and I just put my running shoes on to relieve it.

I'm glad I had the surgery though, so at least I'm able to run and wakeboard again

People comment very, very often that I have dressed to match my Jeep! I usually respond by telling them I bought the Jeep to match my clothes!!

I have LOTS of orange clothes. I have said it many times, but I just love the color orange. It is like the color orange is a magnet and I am drawn straight to it!! I have orange dresses, skirts, pants, shirts, shoes, jewelry, and other items!! I have some cool orange belts that I use to add orange "pop" to outfits!!

I am hoping to get my crush JKU soon! The salesman was supposed to call me today to discuss but I never received the call, strange for a salesman. Maybe hes off today. Lol.

Still want to see a picture of a Crush JKU with 33's and 2.5" lift!

Does that mean you found one?

If my Crush had those, I would gladly post a picture! Mine is a Sahara - I have merely added a shorty antenna, a dead pedal, and stickers on the visors. I have bought the stuff to make grill inserts, but haven't gotten around to that yet. No big mods like these other folks, but I am quite happy!!!

Threw a couple decals on her today... One for my emergency exit (camping handle), and a black and cutout American flag on each side where my Wrangler badges used to be...

Okay, I find the emergency exit decal to be very sexy because my mind pictures having fun in the back of the Jeep! (I have no desire to camp, but have no problem with the thought of getting lost on a side road!!) Yeah, I am not normal!!!

I like your flags also!

Can you find one a different color and have someone photoshop it orange?

Mine is a 3.5 lift and 35" tires or I would gladly post one for you.
