I fell in love with the Mountain Edition!

I was just looking around at different models, and I have seen the Mountain Edition JK before here and there. I saw one on the road the other day, all decked out! I fell in LOVE! So, shouted to the driver over my YJ's loud growl, and told him how much I loved it, and turns out we were going to the same place (sports authority) so he let me take a look around. Now, I know what to ask for christmas! (next to the major facelift of the YJ of course) "mommy, I want a JK Mountain Edition. Rescue Green. The 7 speaker sound system. 4 speed manual... actually, so we don't have to go into detail, just take me with you to pick it out. okay?"

I think she was convinced
we'll see what happens!

any one with any opinions or must need option ideas?

My only idea is HURRY! They were limited editions to begin with, and they were only for 2010!

I've got a rescue green mountain and I do love it. Just had a girl last night in an Islander talk to me about my Mountain.

I know I have to hurry for a NEW one, but there will always be USED ones around

I'm hoping for Christmas, because my mom and her affiliates are launching a new website, so we will be coming into some money hopefully... so that has definitely been added to my wish list!

And yes, the Mountains are awesome! it's like a JK without the minivan aspect! (not that I'm hatin on the JKs) It's got all the querks, and still a BEAST!

Haha! I'm sure! Especially after driving a 5 speed for a while, I can see how that happens!

I have a Black one I picked up on Memorial day. I think this is the toughest looking package that offers more features over any other out there. Mine is the 6speed manual. I was going to get them to pull off the Mountain decals but decided against it. Depending on what day of the week it is they are either staying or leaving. Only thing I wish I had is to have both tops. I have the Freedom top and it is great but if I want to go on a long trip I would prefer to have a hard top for that. I added the Cibie H4 head light upgrade from Daniel Stern which fixes the poor stock head lights.

They were offering the $500 in Mopar bucks when I bought it so I was able to get some accessories from Jeep. I get compliments every day on it.

BTW I see your local and I'm an ex PA guy also.

I agree with you! The Mountain has all the awesomeness of the newer Jeeps with all the toughness that it's supposed to have. I definitely would want to have both tops as well! And if you are ever looking for a place to get accessories/parts, Morris 4x4 is right here in Pompano if you didn't know already. You can go pick up the stuff from em, save on shipping and what not, and get your stuff that day! They are great people. I just have to recommend them to everyone. Maybe pick yourself up a top! LOL! Your rig looks awesome btw! I just love the look of the Mountain Editions!

Cool

there's a Mango Tango Mountain with all the goodies including 4sp-auto down at my local dealer he's trying to make me buy at $26995 OTD....oh, docs/fees adds $126 he said.

I'm getting tired of waiting for my property to sell, I've found what I"m after....but if I'm still sitting on my thumbs by spring, there's always them Rubis to temp me....

Why would someone buy a Mountain instead of a Rubicon? Is cost the only reason?

When I bought my '09 Rucion, I was working for Chrysler and was able to get an employee deal at $4k back of Invoice in the fall of 2008. I was pretty darn happy, to say the least.

the mountains are so sexy. i'm on the fence about "mountainizing" my 2010, only because i'm not a fan of the fake-me-out model recreations.

Because they like the way it looks and don't need/want the added features of the Rubicon.

Like it or not, Rubicon owners, I've wheeled from Florida to northern Alberta and haven't gotten in a situation that needed a Rubicon's extra benefits to get me going.
I daresay that I've wanted those goodies ---- plenty of times. And, personally regret not getting the Rubi.
But most people will never need them.

I certainly don't mean any offense, but if you haven't needed the Rubicon's benefits, then you weren't pushing the Jeep hard enough.

I can say the same thing about my Rubicon. If I don't ever need a winch, or more ground clearance, or better traction, or whatever... that means I'm not pushing it hard enough.

Oh, no offense taken.
I have a Sahara anyhow.

And the stubby bumper, winch, 4.56 gears, & good tires mated with years of experience and a dose of common sense have gotten me farther than an auto swaybar disco...

Just sayin'. A Rubicon's real contribution are the lockers and 4:1 case. But short of Upper Tellico, the Rubicon Trail, and offroad parks, you don't need that extra help 99% of the time.
People get too caught up in it all. A stock X will get you so many places that it's amazing. The BLDs and solid axles are most of what you need. A bit of practice, a little skill, and a winch for those times when you get in over your head...

Haha! I agree that a lot of people buy a Rubicon simply because it's the top package.

I lived in Texas for a long time, and down there, we off-roaded in the mud and muck. I've been in Colorado for two years, and it's an entirely different game. I'm still very much learning. Having said that, my Rubicon has taken me (a novice rock crawler) places that other Jeeps could not follow with more veteran drivers behind the wheel.

Come to Denver sometime and we'll hit the Rockies!


But back to my original question. Why buy the Mountain at all? Isn't it really just BFG MT's tires on an X?

In my mind, because they look cool and are a limited edition without costing much more than a Sport.
I'd rather see someone buy a Mountain and USE it than those guys that buy a Rubicon and never get it dirty. I mean it's their Jeep to do what they want with it, but.........

I live in Nor Cal and there are more Rubicon Pavement pounders than Rubicon Trail Runners. But as a Rubi owner I paid only $1,800 over sport price and the Dana 44 Front and 4:1 transfer case alone, got me that $1,800 back. All the other goodies, are just a bonus.

Does the mountain have the Dana 44 front or is it the 30 like the sport?

It has the D30. A Sport S package could be optioned with everything except the colored wheels, grill, and stickers for much less. Personally I think the Mountain edition looks best in Mango Tango.
