Iron Cross Stubby Bumper on my Punkn JL



35's, matched flares, alpine sound, coldweather group, LED group, heritage leather, nerf bar steps, stubby bumper with a 9500 lb synthetic winch, and orange d-rings (lol) in punkn metallic. drives like a beast

Nice! Stubby bumpers just make sense to me. Bumper ends just seem to catch crud.

quick interior shot

Been busy with work lately (and I commute about 400 miles a week, now an enjoyable experience). There are a few things to note about the leather:

It's tan, unlike older Heritage Leather colors I've seen in the past (which appear more whiskey).
The interior lower half of the cab is not brown to match the seats but solid black, which I'm on the fence about.
The "tube" in the dash is black on the Punkn jeep (but was red on the Black JL I test drove at the dealer). I have no idea how they pick these colors (because the damn back bumper hook is red on the Punkn).

The leather is thick and embossed with "Rubicon", but the embossing is about 5 mm tall, in lieu of the entire font interior being embossed as I've seen on older models. The vehicle sticker explicitly calls out "heritage leather".

The good news: with the top and doors off, the roll bar exteriors are orange, and the interiors appear to be molded polypropylene to enable mounting of the speakers (and of course they moved the subwoofer to the side instead of the bottom of the rear area). More importantly, the tan leather looks good from the side. I'm not sure if they have ever done it before, but I would have preferred black leather with orange thread. The leather on the back seat is matched, and the middle headrest folds down into an armrest with a double cupholder.

There is no CD slot with the alpine stereo group, but the apple airplay implementation is flawless. There is a large media plug on the dash, and one in the rear below the AC vents for the back seat, and the best media plug is in the center console. Plug your ipod in using a usb cable and it powers the ipod, keeps it out of sight and in a locked area, and makes browsing easy with id3 data and cover art. You can also control your ipod when you press the voice control button on the steering wheel.

That thing looks awesome! I can't wait to see more pics, I'd love to see a side view and the interior!

And wow, 400 miles a week! That's about what I drive.

Just curious, since you have so much seat time in it already...


How has it been for a daily driver? I know yours is modded, but is it comfy, good on the highway, etc. ?


Also, and I know, I know... if I'm concerned about mileage I should get a prius… but, what type if mileage do you get with it on your commute?


I'm wanting to get one, and these things ARE a factor.


Thanks!

Well, our other vehicle is a Dodge Ram with air ride that feels like you're going 30 mph at 90, even towing 12000 lbs, so I have a decent control group.

As a daily driver, the jeep is fun. They advertise 18 to 23 on the new 8-speed automatic, but the digital gauge I have reflects 16 mpg so far; however, to be fair, there is a ton of construction in Dallas and the traffic is stop-and-go all morning long plus the power "sweet spot" of the engine where it reports the best mileage is 55 mph. I go at least 75 mph, even with the 35s.

The seat leather is nice, but I'm a tall guy and would prefer a little more cushion but most importantly, I'd like to be able to angle the front of the seat upward. They all seem to pitch forward a little by default and then you can pump them more forward, but not the other way around.

If you are wanting something with tight driving, the jeep isn't it. I'd put it akin to someone wanting a sailboat vs. a speedboat. If you want to enjoy gripping the road and silently destroying those around you, don't do it. While driving there is a sense of constant floating. The new engine is fast and super peppy even compared to the 2017's. Also, if you need to pull something big, the jeep isn't it.

Surprisingly, the most comfortable thing I've driven in years is the truck I bought my wife. It has insane pickup, tows smoothly, has air ride so you can lower it to park in a garage, and raise it for off-roading from the factory, ramboxes to safely store stuff without tempting thieves, hidden compartments throughout the vehicle, the most comfortable and adjustable seats, and best of all, air-conditioned leather. As far as enjoying the drive itself, heated seats are nice, but freon up your entire backside on a 100+ day is indescribable.

Get the jeep if you want to be able to hop a curb and go into a river. So far as a daily driver, the views are great and the jeep waves are non-stop, but it's not the most comfortable ride, but I didn't buy it for comfort. I live on 5 acres in North Texas and camp with my wife and daughter. I'd drive a damn go-kart to work if they told me I could just use the jeep on weekends with them. The fun factor cannot be compared.

Hope that helps. I will try and wash her today and get some pictures.

Any side or interior pics? So hard to find any pics of some of the more rare colors out there and it seems all the dealerships around me only have black, white and granite on the lot.

Thanks for the info! I've yet to even sit in one yet, so I have zero perspective on them yet.

I totally believe you about the truck! That thing sounds super nice, and I bet it gets better MPG than the Jeep too, haha. The nicest driving vehicle I've ever driven was the 2018 Yukon XL I had as a rental in Utah last month, That thing was great to drive, so smooth and comfortable and it just ATE UP the miles from Salt Lake to Moab. I would DD one of those in a heartbeat. It also got great mileage; consistently about 20mpg over the ten days we had it. Honestly, as much as I like the idea of the Jeep, that experience makes me really want to get Sierra/Silverado instead. I live in New England where we have crap weather half the year, and wheeling spots are few and far between. I follow the local Jeep club on FB, and no way I'd take a brand new vehicle through what they run, those guys seem to mostly drive built TJ's and beat to snot (but built) XJ's. And with the incentives they're running on the Silverados right now, I could get a loaded up Z71/LTZ for about the same price as a JLU Sport S hardtop.
