I just stopped in my dealership to get some touch up paint and they had this one getting inspected.

Ordered a 4 door, Rock Lobster, soft top last week. TOTALLY loaded... Still driving a JK dark blue metallic Mountain Edition until then. Can't wait.

Looking really good OP.

Michdi 12-22-2012 05:29 PM

Mine is on order. White jku w black hard top. First jeep so definitely excited. Will post pics.

This mean MOAB in Rock Lobster is like a chameleon the way it changes color as you walk around it, watching it quiver in place in ever-changing hues that seems to give it a sinister life of its' own!

Not to throw a wet towel on the aforementioned 'love affair' with the paint job, but I'd be remiss if I didn't at least mention how seemingly chintzy the Garmin-based 430N (RHB13) screen graphics appear. Poor color saturation (faded & pastel-like.....needs contrast) and way too grainy for serious detail. You don't think Garmin would dare __ __ __ (feel free to fill-in the blanks)?

Wow, really diggin' that! I may just have bought that thing on the spot, had I been in the market for a Jeep and saw that!

I like white and gecko the best on the Moab. The black trim and top looks great!

Michdi 12-23-2012 08:35 AM

I saw a video review of the Moab where he said the hood bulge was done so that the engine could sit up higher and provide better clearance. True or BS?

Sounds like BS to me. I'm certain the hood bulge is to give you more room to work under the hood without hitting the big head you'll get from owning a special edition jeep.

Picked mine up a couple of weeks ago and I am loving it.

Whoa--someone's bitter!
On another note, I like the Moab (saw one at my dealer last week), but it needs tougher looking tires.

Enjoy, special edition owners (from an Islander owner)!

camcarrob 12-23-2012 02:31 PM

I agree..the only thing I do wish for is better tires.

Paul04tj 12-28-2012 02:51 PM

Yes the tires need to be more aggressive, but until the funding allows I'll keep running them. With the 8 inches of snow we just got these tires preform great.

The wife got me a set of wheel spacers. It definately helps the the stance.

camcarrob 12-28-2012 02:59 PM

Just online looking at wheel spacers now. What size did you go with for the spacer?

Paul04tj 12-28-2012 03:24 PM

1.5" from Poison Spyder

jwilson2598 12-28-2012 09:37 PM

Slightly OT question. Does the Moab come with a plastic air dam like a standard JK or the AEV metal front skid to go with the bumper?

I considered a Dozer Moab for a brief second....but the color option ended pretty quickly and I didn't like how the saddle leather seats still had the all black interior.

That looks really nice.

It has the AEV plate.

Nice. I am getting ready to install my plate to go with my AEV bumper.

Is the Moab on the hood in black?

rubberjeep 12-30-2012 03:09 PM

No its actually like a grey, hard to make out in that picture due to the glare and everything, it's very understated. I like it its real subtle on the black. It's there easy to make out in person, but probably not with the iphone quality esp when its compressed down to be forum friendly.

Honestly I was thrilled with the moab pictures but 10x more thrilled in person. Love everything about it so far. Makes me feel like a kid again not that i'm an adult but somewhere in between (27). Man boy? maybe.

Of everything surprisingly, the premium soft top is my fav feature so far. So much quieter and more insulated then my 2011. Really didn't expect it to be that huge a difference. Glad I didn't get the dual top.

steve66 12-30-2012 03:40 PM

Is the Moab more expensive then the Rubicon?

rubberjeep 12-30-2012 07:39 PM

I think its about the same Steve. Not as capable off road, doesnt have the 44 front axle and doesn't come with lockers standard ($1500 option on moab). Comes standard with LSD though.

Paul04tj 12-31-2012 08:14 AM

Spec'd out with the same options the Rubi is a bit more.
We were going to get the Rubi, but decided not too. For the wheeling we do we didnt need the crawl ratios or gears.
I wheeled a TJ for 8 years with open diff's at both ends. Never had any issues.
This is my Daily driver, I travel alot for work, Picked it up 4 weeks ago today and I have 2650 miles on it already.

rubberjeep 12-31-2012 08:22 AM

Im in the same boat as you I would rather have the bumpers then the goodies the rubicon offers, maybe thats stupid, but my offroading tends to be fire trails so really any wrangler is fine.

Strokerswild 12-31-2012 08:30 AM

What are they putting on the Moab for tires? They certainly aren't BFG Muds, which GY Wrangler?
