look up Ace engineering rock sliders, they offer ones that bolt on over the stock rails. there are some that weld onto the existing rails too but I personally prefer the look you get form the Ace sliders.

Ya, they came in my Sahara as well. Don't know about the Sport, but you would think so.
04-22-2012 09:35 AM
wheely4fun It finally came!! Ordered Feb 2012 and received April 13, 2012. Flame Red JKU Sahara with 3 piece body colour hard top, 6 speed manual, 3.73 rear axle, leather seats and 430N media center. Lots of modifications in mind for it.

Around 100 starts loosening up, 200 you can start teaching it, 1000 it's fully opened up. All I can say what a frikkin awesome engine. Throwing it around like a sports car.

Having noted all oddities with all 2012 since people got them last year, same little noises from the same areas. Got a little "tinkle" sound (like a hot engine when you switch it off), super subtle from the drivers side. Very very subtle so much so can't exactly pin point its location. Seen some mention of similar here something with the air vent inside the dash or the outside mud flap or some plastic. But its a "tinkle", The passenger side sounds like it might be the piping behind the glove box, but its also not pronounced enough to pin point. Only at 90 miles after pick up the other day, will investigate if and when. All I'm interested in is the engine. WOW. to that.
Thanks and will do - hanging. As I posted in the Feb waiting room, found out why my jeep is delayed. When it was getting the black out package, the battery died. And do it has been sitting, dead, in Ohio and was never put on the train.

Ouch.

I already know who is going to help me and who is going to BS me based upon their first names.

Best so far have been "Heidi" and "Tom"

I won't even mention those who deserve to just get hung up on.

positrak should clarify, inside, both sides, absolutely not outside engine wise.

I have no idea why, just that it was never put on a train.

UGHHHHhhhh!

I swear, Jeep is trying to kill me with all this anticipation.
So, in order to cheer myself up, I ordered the following just now:

[*] Extended Brief Top by S/B - Black Diamond w/header[*] Safari Straps Warrior Window Extended[*] Pair of Rigid Dually 2x2 LED Lights, White, Spot and brackets[*] Stubby end caps[*] Hood lock[*] Tuffy Tailgate Security Enclosure[*] Drake Black Knobs for shifter and transfer case[*] RR A-Pillar Switch POD with two red, one amber and one green rockers



The only thing left to do, apart from having the jeep in hand, is to order tires, probably 265/70/17's.

I already have the stubby antenna, some Q grab handles, cans of plasti dip and nightshade, stickers and neoprene seat covers for front and back (gonna have custom logos put on them).

But you know what I don't have yet.

Hang tough. I know the wait is killer and very frustrating, but it is sooooo worth it. I called Jeep Customer Service every day for the last 3 weeks. I know they were tired of me calling.

It is so frustrating!!! Im sure for you since you know yours is done and just sitting there! Im like just make my dang Jeep!! Well as i said before the dealership told me the amount they are giving me on my trade in is only good until the 23rd and if the Rubicon is not here they will have to reevaluate the worth of my Yukon. So im afraid they are going to try to give me less for Yukon then what we originally agreed on, even though I have kept my end of the deal and kept the mileage under 80K.
