So now that the 2012s have been released :thumb: into the wild it's time to see what mods will work on the new model. Some have already preloaded their garages in anticipation of the new Wranglers...tell us what works and what won't. This will save us all time and money! Maybe even a vendor or two will verify that their products have been tested on the new model.

First one I've heard of is a problem with the Rugged Ridge XHD bumper. From another forum, I've heard: "ok, so my rugged ridge bumper won't fit the 2012 there is some type of canister and a bracket for it sitting inside the frame rail on the driver side. It's about flush with the top of the frame rail, and about 6 or so inches wide."

This could mean trouble for any recessed bumpers.

:popcorn:

FWIW I heard from Chris at LoD and he says their front bumper will work on the 2012s. Here's hoping he's right, I'm about to order a stubby!

I got my Wranglerforum.com stickers last week, or the week before. Are they compatible with the 2012? Will the power of the Pentastar melt the sticker down the side of the hood?

I am hearing grumblings that being overly impatient is not compatible with waiting on your 2012.

I’ve heard that jeepers with pre-2012 wranglers are not compatible with the new wranglers... something about engine envy

:whistling: Six months ago, I couldn't even spell "AVATAR"--


"Most" obviously not meaning "you" lol

You have to agree looking through the 12 threads--most don't even have avatars :dance:
Nice :thumb:
Today I are one !!

You know I can't wait for all these 2012 jeep buyers, to start giving some "in depth" evaluation of the auto tranny improvements !!

I think it should even be a sticky ??

MOST doesn't mean ALL geeeeez
congrats on the 12, in three years maybe I'll own one :)
KJ ,thanks for the congrats, your going to like this Jeep,("Jesus" engine or not).
I only put about 45 miles on it so far,so its a bit premature to review it.But Chrysler did a beautiful job with this vehicle.Assuming it is as reliable as my 08 was.Also ,no one is more critical of Chrysler than I am,but it appears they hit a home run with our Wranglers.(time will tell)

You and Jimbox(among others) are going to love your next Rubicons.:thumb:

I don't know how to put an avatar under my screen name, if you must know!!!! LOL:rofl:
