I have the stock tires on both my JK's. On my Rubicon I definitely hear a low roar from the BFG's at 17,000 miles. I rotate every 5000 and run 35 psi. My wife's 11 Sahara with the Bridgestones...

How do you know that ALL 2012's have head issues? Is your statement based on some...

Jeep doors are hard to close. Especially the fronts. However, if yours is harder than most the dealer should be able to adjust the door alignment and or the latch to make it easier.

Do you have any theft concerns? A broken window and a stolen iPad could make for a bummer day. It does look cool though.

I went with 3.73's because I do VERY little off road driving. Your comments seem to suggest you are planning to do the same. Unless you need the ground clearance I would stay with the stock tire...

I would think there should be no problem with a warranty claim on that. It was most likely overtightened (not saying you did it). They just need to be snug. If it's not that way already, I would...

I bought my 11 Sahara in December last year, long after the tickers were out and at that time I got $6,130 off MSRP of $37,500. I'll bet it's much better than that now.

True. My only concern is that aftermarket gear in general is a theft magnet. Thieves seem to be less impressed with factory units. Maybe they know their limited too!

Silver Sahara question

For anyone that has one could you please answer a couple of questions for me? Does the body color match the silver bumper covers? If so what is the paint code on the drivers door jamb?

Thanks!
