Its Shipping

Looks like they will be on showroom floors in a couple days.....
I think they did a good job with the JT. I would like to see a 2 door option though, or a stretch 2 door.

Hope these are the 4190 special order units. Might as well get the bugs out in the display / collector none driven units first.

They have been building customer vehicles for a week or two already, not sure when they started shipping, but customer production has been going on for a bit.

It's interesting. Nothing in NJ yet, that I have seen. Hearing the Launch Edition isn't being shipped until June. That's absurd. I may cancel the LE order and just get a Rubi if they're being shipped sooner.

A tractor trailer full of Gladiators passed me going the opposite direction today heading north on 287 in NJ toward the NJ/NY state line.

Test drive a Rubi yesterday. Seemed like a nicely updated JKU with a bed. My dealer had two out front. Have not sold one yet. At $61k and no discounts it may be a while.

My local dealer has a White Rubicon inbound ($61k) Whew White with the Black Top looks like an old Dude with a really bad hair piece.

I'd Have to get All Black.....

On my way to work yesterday morning I saw a white JT at Cherry Hill Dodge, Jeep. Not a Rubi, not sure of the model, didn't stop. It looked bigger than I thought it would be. Gonna take a ride out there tomorrow morning and check it out.

Checking my dealer's website they have two enroute. Both Rubi's, one white, one black. Both $61,373.00. Yikes.

Two Rubi JT's at my dealer now. Stopped and took a quick look. 62.5K. Nice looking rig. Had fox shocks, color matching top and fenders. Bed is too small though. This pretty much sealed the deal for me. Not a chance. Oh well.

Naw. They know the market, they’ll sell. Probably within a month or two at the most they will sell.

What happened to all those dudes who drooled over the idea of a Wrangler pickup, and promised to buy one no matter what?

They all said no way once they figured out how much it was going to cost...lol. Glad I never said I would get one no matter what. I would never pay anywhere near that for a Jeep Wrangler model, but hey, there are those that will. I'm still going to say they will never sell at that price, they wll need to drop to the 50-55 range.

Yeah, the early pics and then seeing it at the Los Angeles Auto Show turned me off.
I am impressed with all the tech and the truck itself, but I wanted it a little different. I know there is no market for two door trucks but that is more to my liking.

The top picture would be over the top awesome. They'd fly off the dealer lots. My guess is the current JT will fly off as well assuming the prices come down a bit.

At my local dealer you can get a brandy new JLU Sport S with the 4 banger turbo, automatic trans with a hard top for a tad above 33K.

Price has come way down on the JL's.

I agree that the price is a bit high, but you do get quite a lot. I saw it again yesterday and it just gets more impressive each time I check it out. I think you get more than any other truck for sure.
As an overlanding vehicle I think it is perfect. Put a rack up top, add a tent, and still have room for gear annnd have a vehicle that will get you there.
Uh oh, I think I’m talking myself into a new Rubicon.

A coworker has an all black Rubicon. It's gorgeous. This is a truck you need to see in person. Pictures don't do it justice.

I spec'd one out today similarly equipped to my HR and it spec'd me out of money. Over 10G than what I spent in 2016. Ouch


Still a nice looking rig. Maybe in three years...

I had a feeling it might look pretty good in person/and in all Black....

Then imagine it lifted with 35/37's

I went to the dealer yesterday to check them out and I was amazed at how small the bed was, you can't even bring home a 70 inch TV in that The back seat was also very cramped. I did like the looks of the rubicon, but the regular one was just to plain and was 54k msrp. Rubicon was 61k msrp. I was so looking forward to these years ago, but now that they are here I"m a bit underwhelmed and of course the msrp is way too high. Did not test drive it so I'm not sure how they drive.

The bed looks out of proportion. Looks like someone put a bed off a different vehicle and stuck it to a Wrangler
