Just ordered my new Jeep from the factory. Billet silver 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Rubi. All the helpful posts here assisted our decision despite the fact Consumer Reports rates this beast 20 out of 100. I guess they just do not get why people buy a Jeep.
I have never owned a Jeep before, but just like we bought a Beamer when we moved to Germany, we had to get a Jeep when moving to the USA. (I am originally Canadian, but please don't flame me over that ;-)
To be honest this vehicle will suit our lifestyle much more as we are often camping, hiking, biking, etc. and having a vehicle that can take you just about anywhere will be a huge advantage. Also I have never cared much about creature comforts. (I was already sold when I heard there were plugs in the floors so you could hose out the inside, although I am not sure how this works with the leather trim model we bought).
So...any advice for a first time Jeep owner moving to San Diego? Once I have some experience driving it I have my sights set on trying out the Rubicon trail. In the meantime I will have to settle for a 4x4 simulator until we get our Jeep delivered.
