Should be getting my new 2015 Rubi today. Woohoo!!! I'm excited, and mods are already being planned. Thanks for the welcome, Ladies!
Welcome and damn, I wish someone like you lived out here in Colorado! The men I deal with are helpful, but they never remember that I am still learning and get frustrated with me...

Gotta post pictures of the new Rubi when you get her!

Sinclair I guess I should have introduced myself here before walking right in and posting, huh?

I've been a forum member for a while. Had my 2011 Rubi totaled recently, but before that, I had done several mods and learned many valuable lessons from doing all the work myself.

Oops, you're right....it probably would blow away. I wasn't thinking that you needed a good "outside" solution. I know that it worked for me ON THE CHEAP, compared to some of those electric pet mats you see out there.
I think your cookie sheet solution is probably the best one for now. Other than maybe one of those plastic hawks/owls.....but cats are too smart for those.
Good luck!

Ya I think someone challenged him and he jumped in my Jeep to get away? There are so many cats around here but Orange Tom and Black Kitty (a momma that had kittens behind our fence) are the only two that stay in our front yard. We don't feed them, we just don't chase them off. I haven't seen him since that day so now I'm kinda worried about him. Grr to cats that you want to hate and end up caring about. Lol!

Jr. Rubi Hey Irish, i just found this site recently too. Great to have some lady friends- with- jeeps. I too just got my first jeep (2014 Rubicon, its red & black) and she's Lil' Rubi for now...i may come up with a more dedicated name, since i've yet to destjnguish if...she's a she or a he. i am in Las Vegas and the HEAT is is
stiffling still. But i hope to take her out to the trail soon. I had an issue with her and i guess i will consider it a "birthmark". ... but we will all have days like that from time to time. Its good these ladies here have our back and we support each other. I know i appreciated it. ...thanks to all you girls. And welcome Irish

Might save you some hassle of having to rig up cookie sheets, and it will conform to the surface, so you can put it just about anywhere.

Mine is stock as well - we took a short dirt road - it was actually a little TOO short & easy (why we took Quakerbrige home)! Took CR532/Chatsworth Rd to Ringler - straight onto dirt rd - marked hiking trails right there as well.

Wharton State Forest - Apple Pie Hill

You could easily detour to Apple Pie Hill on your way to the Cranberry Fest - it's on the way!

Welcome Irish!

Priscila, vinegar is supposed to neutralize the smell of cat pee, but I've never tried it. I don't think I could stand it if my jeep smelled of cat. A feral cat sleeps in my jeep when I have the windows off, but so far it hasn't desecrated it, and it patrols my barn for rats and mice, so I figure it's a trade-off to give it a place to sleep that's safe from coyotes.

We (my husband and I) just joined this forum last night, and after reading all around the place, I got to wondering if there were any female Jeep Wrangler owners on here, as every post I saw was from a male. Glad I found this thread! My husband bought me my first Wrangler (we've had several other Jeeps over the years--2 Cherokees and 1 Grand Cherokee) on Saturday. Yes, it is MINE. He has (and much prefers) his little Saturn commuter car. Stands to reason--it gets 40mpg, and is actually more comfortable than my new (to me--it's a 2002) Jeep. Since he commutes 200 miles a day to and from work in the big city from a small town on the coast where we live a block from the beach, that kind of thing is important to him! The new Jeep is just a "toy" for me. A giant, lifted, rock crawling "toy" :-). The only previous owner was also female, and although she paid big bux to have it fitted out for off road fun, she never did any, and in the end, decided she needed a honkin' huge diesel pickup truck to haul her horses and their trailer with, so she traded this pretty red Jeep in. Now it's mine, and even though I need a 2 step stepstool to get into and out of it, I love it! I doubt I'll ever get rid of it. I've wanted a Wrangler, Willys, or CJ for decades, since my (step)father used to buy, modify, and race them, one at a time. He'd buy one, fix it up, race (drags and mud courses) it and modify it until it was a consistent winner, then sell it and buy another. His last Jeep, a Willys, was inherited by my niece upon his death. Anyway, he instilled in me a love of these kinds of machines that has lasted to this day. To say I'm pleased is an understatement! Glad to see there are other female owners, here. The testosterone was getting a bit thick in other threads :-).
I'm a girl LOL I own a 2007 Rubicon, I call her Ruby. She has a 31/2" Rubicon Express lift on her.

Thanks for the tip I wouldn't mind if my jeep smelled like coffee, though, love coffee!

Zwack-n-Irish Thanks, ladies! I'm Irish, btw. Zwack is my husband. Just so you know who is the female :-). I doubt Z will post in this section very often! LOL!
