Thanks Guys

Yeah unfortunately a dent, had to of happened in the factory becuse the way it was boxed and packaged was awesome! I figured its it first battle scar, im sure ill get a few of them on the trails, just gives it character This bumper is seriously bult like a tank, and im sure leaves the people at the NHTSB that writes the pedestrian colision laws for manufactures laying awake at night, this thing would hurt if you got hit by it

I didn't like the Rubi wheels at all and even suggested a trade with the dealer. Now having looked at many of them on here i really like them. Slow to come around yes but very happy I did.

I still think last years Rubicon/current Sport S wheels look the best of any factory offerings.

Cool Liv drty ghecko

Just got my new toy 4 weeks ago. I'm currently doing an exhausting amount of research into aftermarket accessories. Some things I plan on doing in the near future include: Front and rear bumpers (w/ tire carrier and front winch), wheels, KC off-road lights. I have some really awesome half doors, but since I'm in Canada and it's a cold October I don't have them on and no pics yet. Happy to finally be part of the Jeep clan!

My Gecko

Picked mine up in August and I've been modding it like crazy. Was originally going to go with Crush, but took the Gecko out for a ride. It grew on me. Easy to find in the parking lot. I also did the vents black with the Gecko green on the four grooved spots. Gotta update my pics. Getting ready for a run to Rausch in November.

Looks good how about some specs. What lift you running and who makes those bumpers ?

I gotta know where you got the interior Gecko accents for the speakers and handles...

I just picked up my Gecko last week. I have some cathing up to do.

Just a heads up that according to Pat Gecko will be an early build out color. If you dont have it ordered by the end of the first week of Nov you will have to buy off the lot. I am ready for this color to be done. I love my Gecko but bringing this color to an end will keep it special.

Haven't seen any 2013 Rubis in person yet. I think I'd trade my '12 Rubi wheels for em regardless.

Kinda like the wave of babies arriving 9 months after a major snowstorm or other cataclysm that forces people to stay indoors for an extended period?

Not the only Gecko in town...

Yep, same here. I was the only Gecko out here in the middle of nowhere (the dealership was 1 1/2 hours away) until last week. A delivery guy came in (had been admiring my Gecko for weeks now...) and was grinning from ear to ear, informing me that I was no longer the "only Gecko in town", and proceeded to show me photos of his wife's new Gecko Unlimited. Oh well.... My influence for this color goes back decades, when I first spotted a Lamborghini Miura in "Pistachio Verde".....

I just picked up my Gecko last week. I have some cathing up to do.

I picked up some OEM paint (aerosol and brush) from QT. A couple of coats and finished with clear. The next thing will be the instrument cluster, but I've got some skid plate upgrades and the winch to tackle first.

Thanks! Go for it. I've seen the whole speaker cover painted, but I settled on just painting the 'ring' on the tweeter and soundbar covers. Simple and easy mod.

Here is mine. Had to wait 7 weeks. Been stacking parts while I was waiting. Still waiting for my PSC front and rear bumper to be powder coated. But here is what I have so far. 2.5" AEV, 315/70/17 duratracs, PSC rocker knockers.
