Still stoked everyday i turn the key in the ignition. It runs like a dream and drives even better. It feels solid on the road and it gives a safe viewing distance on the crazy Dubai roads. The Pentastar has plenty of accelaration to be able to get out of a tight spot (on the sealed stuff) and has plenty of torque to get into the dunes.

Its a total package and both my wife and I are very pleased with our purchase. (first new car ever btw) We love the outdoors and thats why we bought the Jeep, and will be using it a lot to go camping over the next couple of years. (desert camping yeah!! only in winter though :) and have lined up a few overnighter trips down across the desert in a few weeks. (hopefully still not super hot then)

Also love the boot. Its got enough space for our stroller and has very easy access. just love it, and whats even better is that the wife loves it.:thumb:

if i had to sum it up in a few words, Solid, great car. comes well recommended.

I do have one question, how come our front bumper is different that the ones on the US stock? Am looking to maybe upgrade the front bumper. AEV have a few nice ones :)

We were driving home late a couple of nights ago with kid snoozing in the back and the radio on softly and she leans in and whispers in my ear. "Love the car babe, excellent choice."

Awesome, she is a beaut :)

Yes- the US bumper is different.
Funny, sometimes I see people in the US asking about yours.

Looks great! Love the hood :punk:

Are those the same stock wheels that come on the 12 JKU Sport? I think I might have to powder coat mine black. Looks great.

Nice looking Jeep. Can we get a photo directly from the side? From that angle that front bumper looks different than other euro bumpers I have seen.

hope that suffices... for views of the bumper. :) also, just as a heads up, the mopar lift that was installed by Jeep Dubai is a much, much better ride than the stock JK that we testdrove. although the ride is a little harder, it has much, much less body roll.

Sweet ride!!

What are those rectangular things on the front of your front fenders just above the end of the front bumper? Are those Daytime Running Lights (DRL's)? They look sweet. Nice looking Jeep. Just my opinion but I don't care for the Sahara and COD stickers together. Oh yeah, and I love the Factory front bumper that the non-US JK/JKU's get. I wish they were an option or factory on US models. Reminds me of a plastic AEV, lol.

Yep DRL's :)

Yeah about the decals, that's how it came stock from Jeep Dubai. Also all the aftermarket great Including the lift is under Jeep factory warranty , peace of mind.

Also, already have some things in mind for when I get home from the uk.

Thinking about swapping the red indicator lenses out for clear ones and have to do the "aluminum mesh" stuff inside the front grill to protect it from rocks and *cough* camels. not sure if I'll buy a kit or just home depot it....

Any shots of the DRL's on? Can you get the part numbers for the DRL's? Are they added to the Jeeps once they are imported to Dubai or do they made that way? Those are cool.

Yeah no worries, but will have to be after I get back from the uk. Doh!!
