Changed the grille and bumper today.
LOD full width. That big void makes me feel like I need a winch. Now.

I'll have some new pics of this one soon on the trail. Hubby gets home this week, so all we gotta do is throw the lift into his then we'll be out to play.

Where did you get the grille? I was planning on taking mine to a local shop and just have them paint it black.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE

.................................... ..............................

Got the call from the service department -- the Jeep has been fixed.
They found a problem with the ground at the other end of the instrument wiring harness. At this moment, very happy. Residual doubts? Maybe, but probably won't stop me from heading back out this weekend. Gotta learn to trust a little bit. Thanks all for your concerns and warm words.

.................................... ..............................

PS I finished Diablo last night on Normal. Gonna run through one more time on normal for some artifacts and gold before upping the difficulty level.

Turning into a great day -- except I am swamped at work, haha. Damn this employment distraction, don't they know I have rum, games and four wheeling to do (not together, nor necessarily in that order).

Okay, back to work for me. Betcha I slip out an hour early to return that silly minivan and get back behind the wheel of my Gecko

/s/
A Happy GonzoBobH

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now just gotta get that lift in there Bob. Hubby gets home next week and a buddy is gonna come over and help put the lift into hubby's Rubi. (Think the friend is just coming for the free beer though. lmao)

We're gonna have to hit some trails soon and show some of the new forum goers how to really have fun in these things!

PS: I'm kinda glad you live on the other side of town though. lol Only b/c you currently have the only other gecko I've seen around here. I like feeling special.

It's an eye catcher! In my vast (4 days) experience, it's a love hate thing. My wife hates it and I completely love it. The most frequent reaction is, "Wow, that's...bright!"

I get the same reaction. Not sure if I should take it as a compliment or not.

I take it as a compliment! My neighbor said my Jeep reminded him of his favorite fishing lure. I take that as high praise since he's a professional fisherman!

Hey, it's good to be back. Yea, I need my lift, shocks and springs - and quicker disco's - on like yesterday. I am trying to get into the shop at Lloyd's transmission (great guy), but am not having any luck.

As far as others appreciating the gecko, I thought the best previously was when I was near Costco (my pool company is there) and a girl in a passing car leaned halfway out her window and shouted, YOUR JEEP ROCKS!. But when driving home yesterday way up on Oracle, a whole stream of cars was passing by me in the left lane when a dude in an Audi drives by and I see him look back over his right shoulder at the JKU; he is sublimely bobbing his head up and down as if to say, Oh Yea, that how itz done, for shizzle. It was corny, but cute.

Might head up to Patagonia this weekend. Trying to talk the wife into picking up an inflatable mattress for the back and spending some time fishing and jeeping.

Lol yea, these Geckos definitely catch a lot of attention. But then let's face it, we picked the color because it was bright and eye catching, so it makes sense.

Still love our Silver Rubi, but this Gecko just makes me happy when I look at it. lol Can't really explain why.

2012 Sahara Gecko

3.73 gears, Traction lock, and hard top were the only things I ordered.

Ordered it on a Monday night at 6pm, was built wednesday/thursday and on the dealer lot friday.


watched it get built, only have pics outside of the factory (no cameras allowed inside)

0 miles



Pulling out of back gate after quality checks



sitting in shipping lot at the factory



on the truck




at home, tinted, debadged, and leveled.



only have had it for 2 weeks and it's already got 1000 on it, took this today





future plans are some 33's, winch mount bumper and wheel spacers.

Funny story. I was cruising around in Ottawa (Ontario, Canada) tonight and as I was stopped at a red light, someone took a photo of my JK. Gotta love the attention.
