I will throw the stock "mud" shoes on occasionally but believe it or not 90 percent of the time it is my business vehicle with fun on the weekends and I hope to have it as a project to build when my boys are old enough.

That said the black Rubicon letters were too "NASCAR" for me but the clean slate a little blank...after all the feedback I think I have landed somewhere in the middle..think I will try stock placement of letters in a slightly darker color...good thing about decals is nothing is permanent (until the sun bakes them of course).

I'll show you guys after I try them and see if the comments "level off" a bit!

I know chrome is liked or not which is why I thought the Mopar bumpers were a little less extreme with the black in the center portion, but when it turns to a at vehicle they will turn into something more functional on the trail and yes probably black.

Anyway I usually know exactly what I want but was undecided with this clean slate so the open discourse helped me form some opinions thanks all and I'll let you know!

mslandsurveyor Some great choices! Both of our Jeeps have a different "feel" to them. The Bullet is getting more chrome for a more(yes...I am going to say it) polished look. The Freezer is and will be all about black and very little to no chrome. Personally, I like the Bright Silver w/ Chrome look. A bit more black is always good to balance it all out in my eyes though, which is why I dig the soft top on The Bullet.

Congrats on your new ride!

ShoreWrangler Good Gawd, was this a $50,000.00 Jeep! I need a better paying job!

i actually like the chrome. For that color I think it works.

Sparkplugg There's nothing wrong with a fresh-and-clean Wrangler. Where you from? Kingsport here. Put those stocks back on and let's get that thing dirty.

Good one.
Your Jeep is the most blinged out Jeep I've ever seen. She's the queen of the road. Cool for your clients, they better appreciate not having to ride in a plain ole company car. I'd rather drive a $50k JK than a $50k Sequoia! Enjoy!

Arcticshaun Ok I gota say. For the love of god put the rubi stickers back on and get rid of that Crome and that will b a bad ass ride inside and out once again But that's my opinion and my opinion doesn't mean dodo . But in all it is a Nice jeep and congrats.

This is exactly what I was thinking, like a ghost emblem. Maybe a matte silver decal.

In several years when it is replaced by a new company vehicle I felt the rubicon platform would be better to "build" from...afraid I'm not around any malls I do have a cabin on a WV brown trout stream though! For now that's my off roading...still love it, mostly on the behalf of my three little boys!

jp2611 It is your Jeep do what you want......I think it needs like a black accent/ pinstrip!!! I know, I know,.......... its a Jeep, but JKU's dressed up like that look like they are in a Tux..and that one is missing his TIE... Sweet Rig though just find his Tie....... whatever that may be.

And to me that is a whole other side of Jeep that is acceptable, A true "off-road" capable vehicle used for transportation on a regular daily basis, that is ready with true off-road capability for when it is needed.

Duffyc04 I typically am a jeep expert (outside of the genius found on this forum), but if I saw your Jeep with rubi stickers and/or a rubi tire cover I honestly would think its someone with a sahara trying to pass it off as a rubicon...

Of course you could lock those radials, disco that sway bar and hit the trails with the best of them and zip me up...

Congrats on your jeep though...Im just so in love with my rubi, I can't imagine wanting to cover it up

JIMBOX I'm an old timer and I love chrome, but

Not ona jeep-

I'm afraid your "SAHARA" is classified as a "MALL JKU"-
