Looks great, like a whole different Jeep. Nice that you didn't need the clips. Good to see Jeep improved on yet another shortcoming from my 2010. Still jealous over the tailgate stop. After seeing that, now I have to get something aftermarket. Sooner or later it's going to get warm again!

jmachnik Thanks JKRuby! Agree with you Gate. I actually wasn't alone. Another rig in front of me (actually behind where I'm standing) with a couple guys in each. Good time. I really do need to find a local club though to meet some people find some good places to go.

Gate53 Welcome! Going offroad alone isn't normally a good idea plus it's always more fun in a group. Even if the group is only 2 Jeeps. Do an internet search for a Jeep club near you and try it out. It's hard to get together with any other Jeep owner and not have some fun and learn something.

New member, first time jeep owner from CT.

Hey all. First off want to thank everyone for the wealth of knowledge I've already taken from this site. It's truly amazing what a tight community Jeep owners make up.
Just got my '12 JKU Sport, 6sp manual, black. Settled for black unfortunately because I lost a Black Forest Green by about 12 hrs. Test drove it, decided to shop another dealer and it sold the next morning. Searched a 300 mile radius for another with the options I wanted but not one to be found. Nowhere! I knew waiting 8 weeks for a new order wasnt an option after test driving that green one. Just couldn't wait. So next was the hunt for the same JKU in black or silver. Within a week a black one with my options (6sp, 23s, dual tops, Sirius, connectivity, that's all) rolled off the truck. Mine! Had it for just over a week now and just passed 600 on the dash.
Mods this past week (starting small) include Hella 500ff lights on kc windshield brackets, rugged ridge hitch, infinity 6032cf speaker replacements with polyfil (thanks to the board for that one), and slush mats. Up next is probably the quadratec grill brackets and kc Long range lights. Likely gonna swap my hella driving to the grill an kc's on the windshield. It's true what they say about glare from the Hellas when off road at night. Following that, looking at either the TF leveling kit or BB. Still on the fence till I pull the trigger on a tire/wheel upgrade.
In any case this thing is like a drug. Love it and can't get enough. Don't know how I waited so long. I was so close to buying a used 2011 JK and I'm so glad I waited and stuck it out for the 3.6 Pentastar. The thing rips.
Anyway, I've rambled enough. Thanks again to everyone on here. Looking forward to many yrs ahead.
