Order went in this morning!

Pretty basic build:

JK Rubicon
Granite
Manual
Half Doors
Tinted back windows
Connectivity
Uconnect 130

Mods will eventually be a lift (probably Teraflex 2.5", but have to do a little more research), black AEV Savegre wheels and Duratracs...

Awesome man! Now we will have a Granite rubi 4 door and 2 door with half doors! Can't wait till we get them. You already got a sneak peek at what your granite Rubi will look like with the SWS "Shady" build, BUT yours is gonna look better right off the bat with the half doors!

Speaking of gray 4 door Jeeps. Here's a photo of my beloved Grand Wagoneer from over twenty years ago. The color was Dover Gray Metallic, which to my eyes looks almost identical to Chrysler's new Granite color. I really miss the old 'tough as nails' Woody. Hopefully, without the horrendous gas mileage, the supposed future Grand Wagoneer can live up to its pedigree.

Look forward to seeing pics with your dealer installed mods!

David M - Sweet looking Woody.

And back to I can't get enough of these granite pics from SWS. It even looks good with the fenders off


Has it been six weeks yet?? I can't freaking wait!

Agree 100%... can't wait...Haven't read of anyone with Granite and half doors yet, so I'll definitely post up pics once she's here...
On another note...the SWS build looks pretty sweet...not sold on the no fender look just yet, but obviously notice what they did with the doors?!! NICE!

I guess I should have said the color makes it look good even without the fenders. I definitely don't like the look without fenders. I actually prefer the stock fenders over aftermarket fenders.

Those aftermarket half doors look nice, but nothing can beat our factory half doors IMO

Thanks! I ordered 7/31.. Dealer told me this week, fingers crossed.. but last week when I spoke with the dealer it was still in D1, so hopefully not too much longer.

Hopefully you won't have too long of a wait.. I can't wait to see pictures of your Jeep with the half doors!

Thanks man! I'm hoping to get it within 6 weeks or so - Hopefully the end of October, but we all know crazy stuff can happen and delay the orders.

I have to admit, I had to suck it up when I ordered the half doors on the Rubicon. As you know the half doors don't cost more than the full doors, but in reality they do on the Unlimited Rubicons. The JKU Rubicon comes standard with the power convenience group. So I essentially paid for the power options but didn't get them. Kinda sucks. But on the positive side, I was able to add the front side air bags, which I think you have to have the power convenience group to get those. I knew if I got the full doors I wouldn't be as happy. Plus I like being different then all the other JK's right off the dealer lot.

Hope you get your Jeep this week!

Just a little more eye candy of the SWS build. Not a huge fan of flat fenders, but I think the Granite pulls off the aluminum fenders pretty well. I still plan on accessorizing with black.

In reality you could look at it as, the Power Convenience is a No Charge freebie on the 4DOOR and the 2DOOR Folks have to pony up more for it.

Hello all
ordered 1st jeep ever on 9/11
JKUR
Granite Crystal
x package remote start
5 speed auto
max tow
dual top in black
oh yeah the 730N

Got the bug bad. will search for the cure.
got new warn m800 ready in the box talked to dealer to get them to do the dual battery and install the winch in the x bumper
some led rigid industries lights.

Will try to keep it stock other then a lift and tires in the future. Will get the diesel when it hits America.
Jeep will be used in leu of existing and staying 4x4 long bed crew cab cummins diesel. That is hard to wheel to remote spots to camp and study nature and biology.

Thanks Sucker Punch for starting this thread and those pictures which aren't helping the new addiction.

It was hoping billet would have been a bit more like this color. I still like billet, but I really like GC. I can't afford to trade it in, nor would I want to at this point, but if it needs replacing....

Still in "C" status...yet had a tentative build date of Sept 12. Hope the system has simply not been updated and my JK is already on a train ride.

Ordered on 9/12/13 . Total Out the Door for $39.6k, got around 4.6% below invoice.

2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
Color: Granite Crystal
Options
5-Speed Automatic Transmission
4.10 Axle Ratio
Black, Leather Trimmed Bucket Seats
Connectivity Group With Bluetooth Hands-Free
Freedom Top Black 3-Piece Hard Top
Remote Start System
Air Conditioning W/Auto Temp Control

Mods: Probably do bolt on accessories first then move to the lift and tires due to the leveling of the lift with the additional weight of the front/back bumpers and spare tire.
  • Hitch
  • Front / Back bumpers (Waren or AEV)
  • Air Flow Intake
  • Aftermarket Headunit (Kenwood) most likely
  • 2.5 Lift (AEV or Teraflex)
  • 33 BFG A/T or 35 BFG A/T

^^^ If you think there's any chance you'll want 35s in the future, you're better off doing it first. I think 99% of the people who say they are going to start with 33s and switch make the move waaaay before the 33s are worn out.

Definitely agree 100% but do what you like. If you don't like the look of the 35's or are worried about gas mileage then I understand. But a 2.5 lift should lift your jeep enough to fit 35's without any problem. 33's are pretty much stock size on the Rubicons. I would either keep the 32" Rubi tires or go up to 35's. You don't even need a lift for the 33's. Just my 2 cents - from a crazy guy going straight to 37's...
