I was thinking the same thing. That big of a wheel is pretty heavy.

Bought me a jigg saw to trim fenders next.

Got closer to catching up on finishing mods, but trill have to put my adjustable track bar on, and "pin eliminators" for the rear shocks by JKS -- preloads the shocks and provides a more solid connection.

Def' some awesome special jeeps being presented here, but for me it's the color that makes it stand out. Regardless of the mods.

So far I have had no problems... I am planning on getting a new rear bumper with tire carrier... Just need to decide on which one! Way to many choices!

Yeah I agree with you. Lucky for me nothing broke.

Here are a few more pics of my Gecko Jeep.

love this thing, it is so fun and not too hard on gas, coming from a modded dodge SRT-4. it is bone stock, besides my wheels and tires, but planning on putting a small lift, front light bar with some 6"spot lights, rocker panel protection tubes, and we will see what else from there!
Very nice! Congrats and enjoy.

Just picked up my 2013 Gecko JKUR on this past Friday. Thank you for posting in this thread as it kept me going these past couple of months while I was waiting for the build. Spent the last 2 days and some of the nights transferring over the lift, bumpers, skids, tires etc and I am beat but the results I think are great. I love the color!

Thanks. Yep.....a little of both but love the choices available to modify the Jeep. You can really make it your own and capable to do anything and go most anywhere. Pretty cool

I've got a spare and ordered the Teraflex tire carrier. Keep getting the ole it will be another 2 week thing. I guess I will wait or get tired of waiting and buy something else.

My wife picked up hers a few weeks ago, will stay stock for the most part......but I may be able to sneak a few things in. Gecko is a polarizing color, we like it:

Congrats on the new Toy good looking jeep -- wife is very nice also!
Question... Did that soft top come with your Rubi or was it added after?
Reason I ask is I was under the impression that the Rubicon's come standard with "DARK" windows while the Sport came with clear windows like you have.
Just curious if that changed so I can look for it when my Gecko arrives, if it has clear windows I'll keep my dark ones.
Enjoy your Gecko!

Thanks!

Both this Rubi and the other one at the dealer had standard windows so I assume that's the way they came.......but I'll probably end up buying some tinted ones.
