At least I could replace the plastic bumper with a steel one and the car is like new again.
Where did you live in Pretoria and when?

I purchased a new Rubicon Unlimited in May 2012. I use the vehicle regularly on off-road trails and overland trails with a Jurgens XT120 off-road trailer equiped for camping in the bush. I am also a member of a local 4x4 Forum where we arrange group events and off-road trips into rural areas, game parks and neighbouring countries like Botswana.
I am very satisfied with my Rubican. During November 2012 I was in a massive hail storm and the car was damaged extensively. Spare parts are a problem to obtain and it took 4 months to be repaired by a Jeep approved panel beater. This is not acceptable to me and a basic item like a radiator is not readily available. It was quicker to import the complete fiberglass roof than to source the radiator. The total repair cost was R155 000. (New price R 425 000).
With the fuel price in SA it is expensive to keep the tank full and for this reason I rather use my VW Scirocco to commute in town.
I hope that I will learn a lot from this forum.
