New 18 JKR

I'm happy to report that the stars aligned and my local dealer got a 2018 JK 2-D Rubicon in Extreme Purple AND manual, and I had to pull the trigger. Soft top and half doors too.
Traded in my 2017 WW who was about to get full yeti setup and Metalcloak GC 3.5" lift.

Those will now be going into the new rubi.

Congratulations, post pictures of the build when you're done (well, done is not a word use a lot by us Jeepers.)

That is a rare and awesome combination to find on a dealer lot. I wonder if someone ordered and than backed out. Either way, it’s a huge win for you.

Make sure you get with plumcrzy for build numbers. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have the only one like it built.

Reach out to plumcrzy on the forum. He can get build numbers, he has a thread going on them if you search his user name. If what you are looking for is not already posts he can get some specifics too.

Thanks everyone! This Jeep really makes me smile! What’s cool is that being half doors and no power locks, I got a set of the flat silver keys that came with the TJs. Identical to an 05 Rubi I used to own.

Gonna find out about the build numbers, now I’m curious!

I’d be curious to know the build number as well. Has to be a very rare combo. Can’t believe it was actually on a dealer lot in that setup as well. Congrats on the new Jeep

Today, finally took the Jeep to the shop since they finally received my Metal Cloak GC kit. Expect to have it done by Wednesday. Will post pics with the stock rubi wheels and then afterwords with the 37's install.

So far, plumcrzy hasn't had access to 2018 JK numbers yet...will be staying on top of that.
