I bought a JKUR late summer of 2013, and drove it through last winter which, for us, was a fairly rough one. I also took it on a 2600 mile round trip across Montana, North Dakota, and Minnesota over...

I bought my JKUR last August. I decided I wanted to put Blizzaks on it for the winter months, so went to Costco to order a set. They had the right size, but refused to mount them because the...

My other vehicle is a 2011 Toyota Tundra. If I could only have one vehicle I'd be really torn, because a truck is just essential at times whereas I really prefer driving the JKUR 90% of the time. ...

Purchased my '13 JKUR in August of 2013, and it has 13113 miles on it right now. Lots of 13s in that account! But so far it's been lucky and trouble-free.

This is good news. Sell the Kia and buy another Jeep, maybe have a 2-door and a 4-door, and then you'll both be happy!

This. I bought my '13 JKUR a year ago, and sold an '08 Prius a few days before buying the Jeep. I switched my insurance from the Prius to the Rubicon. The Rubi value was more than double the...

I get positive comments on the color frequently (maybe not daily) as well. I parked mine next to a red JKU in a parking lot just the other day, it was not RL, was a shade or two darker, and a couple...

I had an '00 TJ with the 4.0L inline 6, and now have a '13 JKUR. I put almost 100K on the old engine, trouble free, and generally liked it fine. The 3.6 is better, however, lots more power and...

I rotate in the spare, and do a full rotation every 5K miles, when I change the synthetic oil. Think about it in terms of percentages, the tires will, quite literally, last 20% longer by using the...

Looks like an easy buff if the pic is accurate. Steel sliders or side-steps offer some protection, but some doors are quite rounded and can reach past a slider/step, not to mention trucks/SUVs which...
