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.

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)?

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.

Is the Moab more expensive then the Rubicon?

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.

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.

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.

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