Over 20,000 miles on the Jeep and going strong. A few small mods, added some Rubicon rock rails and rubi shocks (local take-offs) a few weeks ago. Small improvements, but nice. I have a set of 4-door...

Just had mine replaced. They replaced the stopper and the hinges -- dealer knew about the issue, no fuss. As my Jeep is a '14 I'm not entirely sure they needed to replace the hinges, but they offered...

I put Firestone Destination AT tires on my wife's last vehicle (Isuzu Rodeo Sport). Good in the snow, worked fine for the amount of off road work we did, and were nice on the street. I may go with a...

I've thought about that, and may still go that route. Stock wheels are cheap around here, so if the right deal comes along I'll probably grab a set.

I'm at 16,000 miles on mine (delivered end of March 2014). I love it. No real mods, just a set of Grabars, shift knobs, and the removal of the back seat. I'm really happy with how I ordered mine,...

You go with what you like, that's all that matters. The white looks good too. :)

Having looked at my hinges they do look like the later design -- however, if the dealer is going to replace them, I'll go with it. No question that the stopper has issues, though.

This can be a loud question around here. :drinks:

Get the one you like. I've owned both ('13 auto, '14 manual) and they're both plenty capable.

15,000 mile update

Figured I should pop in for a 15,000 mile update. Not a bad mileage tally for 9 months. Still puts a smile on my face.

Shortly after bringing the Jeep home I took her down to the south end of...

My advice is to have a good, realistic idea of what you want to do with your Jeep. The more you know about what you're going to do, the better you can match the Jeep to your needs.

Had mine almost a week now. Stock other than a little de-badging (and will stay that way for a while) but I couldn't be happier.

I should have used the fishing line/floss trick -- was aware of it, just didn't think it necessary. My swearing proved otherwise. :rant:

Ah well, it was going to get scratched at some point.
