Hey troy, congrats on the order! Im also waiting for a 6 speed rubi, did your dealer tell you if it will have 4.10s or 3.73 gearing?, mine insisted that it will come with 3.73s, but on jeeps website it only shows 4.10s as standard, i had another dealer tell me it will come with 4.10s though, so im just trying to ask as many people as possible.

It will come with 4.10's. Don't worry about it. Your dealer or sales guy is clueless. 6 speed rubicons only come in 4.10's.

Did you just match the front sides to the rest, or add tint to all the back windows as well? What %? Looks sweet - once you tint (haven't done windshield) you never will want to go back! I am waiting on a 14 unlimited rubicon granite crystal...

I'm pretty sure Sucker posted the name, maybe it's a page or two back, and I'm pretty sure it's not a Rampage.

I know it's the wrong color, but here is a frontal of my Rampage... I have another picture of Mike's Rampage on his billet with a winch and Rigid Duallys, if you'd like to see it on something closer to granite. Let me know...

Thanks Star! I'm really liking the Rampage. I actually looked back and Sucker's bumper is the Bestop High Rock. He even posted a front on shot a couple pages back that I replied to then. Damn I'm losin it lol...

Yep, it's the Bestop 4x4 highrock bumper. I am loving it. I got a great deal on it locally. The rampage is a really nice looking bumper also. If it had popped up and had the same deal I got on this one I probably would be sporting the rampage. I do like the single hoop a little better on the Bestop vs. the rampage, but that is just personal preference. I like the design of both.

StarBrite- the half doors are awesome. They are noisier than full doors, but they keep out the cold about the same as a full door. The heaters in these JK's are awesome so I have been staying toasty warm.

You know I was just giving you a hard time, right, Sucker?

It could be -50* and you'd STILL be loving those half doors, I know.

And yes, the jeep heater ROCKS!

Jeep looks great with the new bumper! Can't wait for an update on the CJ, too!

Rubi looks great with the half doors, bumper, and rails! Those half doors are gonna be cool this summer. By the way, We're headed down to your side of town to Franklin Saturday afternoon to watch some playoff football,with a fellow jeeper buddy and his wife.

Jeep heater, heated seats and remote start are more priceless than GOLD during the Polar Vortex!

Just 3 more years and then I can get the hell out of New England and head back south or west.

Makes it look mean! What is wrong with the decal?

All these GC's have me wanting one something fierce.. Doesn't help that the guy down the street from my office just got one.. Looks like I'm putting my 2010 2door JK up for sale and visiting the dealer to order a 2014 JKU in GC

Thanks man! I'm loving it. I'm ready to order my lift and tires, but probably will wait a month or two before ordering them. Need to get this CJ wrapped up first. I will be in the Franklin area Saturday afternoon also for my girls 5th birthday party.


Congrats to all the new granite orders. The wait will be worth it.
