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.

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

The miles will come -- my Jeep is my DD (wife and I commute together) so it'll get some use right away.

And the shifting is just fine (I disabled HSA as well), just more truck like, appropriately...

Mod 1.5: de-stickering

This isn't really a mod, but I did remove the dealer sticker, side stickers (Wrangler/Sport) and the Jeep lettering on the grill. All the stickers came off easily with a...

Congrats to all the other new waiting room graduates!

Put about 200 miles on the new Jeep so far, and I love it. Shifting requires a bit of deliberation, but is perfectly in keeping with the...

The means you have gone into D1 -- parts are gathered and you're scheduled for production. Normal wait in D1 seems to be about 3 weeks, give or take. VOTS won't show anything else until you get built...
