New Jeep on way
Agreed with dealer on 2d rock lobster. Not a ton left so stuck with connectivity, dual top and 3.21s. 1.5% under invoice

Going to be doing some off roading. Mostly dirt trails with trees/ few rocks. Mostly will be my DD. if get into off roading more will ultimately get small car like dart to focus this more off road 2-3 years.

If diesel wrangler ever arrives will trade this in on it in a heartbeat.

Can I do 33s on 3.21 without terrible driving.

Plan first project this summer is lift.

Aev lifts. 2.5" vs cheaper 3.5"

My buddy who is auto mechanically inclined is going to help me do the lift. He says done before nonAEV. Doing in a day in 2 car garage with jack stands is no problem. Is this realistic.

Do indeed to decide on aftermarket bumpers before lifting?

How to best prevent spare from being stolen.

If I regear will be doing 35s will the d30 front handle 35s?

Thanks all. Hope to have jeep in Monday as they had to trade with another dealer.

is your hardtop color matched?

No they had some of the color matched. I was on the fence. Wife hated it. Surprisingly she tried to talk me in to a 10A. She is devious. Turns out later she told me She thought, "it is more expensive so you won't leave the top off in the rain rip the carpet out and let it get all un-new". Making a jeeper out of her 1 step at a time first was to get her to steal my 2011 grand which she now loves and never wants to get rid of.

Will post pics when I get it.
