75th anniversary or Backcountry? what would you buy and why?:drinks:
well they are both available in any colour... both Sarge green and purple are not my first choice.
I LOVE the bumpers on the Backcountry... but love the hood on the 75th :tomatoes:
Thanks! Sounds like you need some new friends. lol.Nice Jeep Adamo. :thumb: I like that color too. Was considering getting my Rubi in Mojave Sand. My friends say it looks too blah...but I like it. Do you think it has nice extra touches being 75thA edition? Or is it just extra money basically for badging and the cool hood and bumper?
Just noticed the headlights too. Those come with it or aftermarket. They look pretty sweet. LEDs?
Thanks! Sounds like you need some new friends. lol.
One of my coworkers said the colour looks exactly like our filing cabinets at the office. Why not, it's basically the same shape. :lmao: That being said, I get *far* more compliments on the Mojave Sand than I ever did on my '14 Dune.
I had a '14 in Dune, and for me, there are a number of nice extras:
The interior with the cloth inserts and contrast stitching not only look nicer, IMO, but the seat warmers are actually more effective now- which is nice in Canadian winters.
The hood and bumpers are fantastic, and I had wanted to get them for my '14 anyway.
The Alpine premium audio system is SO much better than the '13/'14 system. I had replaced all of my speakers and sub in the '14, and the new system still completely blows it away. So much more power- it's nice and clear, and gets plenty loud. I can hear it with the top, doors, etc off at highway speeds.
In addition, I ordered mine with 3.73s and LSD- where my '14 had 3.21s and open differentials.
I have also come to love the 75th exclusive bronze finish wheels. At first, I was undecided, and was considering keeping my Rubicon wheels, as I really like the style of them. Now, I'd never get rid of them. They tie in really nicely with the other bronze accents (bumpers, tow hooks, badging), that it looks quite sharp together. IMO, Mojave Sand is the most aesthetically appealing combo with the 75th accents.
In my case, it was a no-brainer. To buy a loaded Sahara then added the bumpers and hood aftermarket would have cost more, and I'd still have the 3.21s and open differentials. If you're looking at a loaded Sahara, and like the bumpers/hood, the 75th package is actually a pretty good deal. I don't do any rock crawling, and don't need the lockers/capability of the Rubicon/HR, so for me, the 75th is the perfect package.
The headlights are a 50W Morimoto Sealed7 HID retrofit, with Philips CBI bulbs. They are a bit more expensive than the JWS/Trucklite LED options, but offer FAR superior lighting, and have a razor sharp cutoff. I had posted a pic on here earlier showing the cutoff on my last Jeep. The foglights are the Morimoto XB LEDs, and with the Rubitrux adapter, drop right into place.
There were a few things that I moved over from my '14- things that I like, but not everyone will want to make the same changes:Like I said earlier in a different post...the 75thA looks really good without having to mod anything...you could drive it around stock and potentially not feel the need to mod it in any way at all.
I asked that question because its just if you wanted/liked Sarge, then the 75A would be your only choice. Likewise, if you liked XP, then the BC would be your only choice.well they are both available in any colour... both Sarge green and purple are not my first choice.
June would put you at a '17MY for ordering, so the 75th most likely not be available any longer for ordering. I would put my order in now if you can...I am ordering the 75th in June. .....
I have a Backcounty and I love it too!I a also removing the graphics.I love my Backcountry. I wanted the AEV bumpers and front bumper skid plate (most everyone overlooks that nice 1/8" steel front AEV skid on the BC). The front bumper fit my warn zeon 10-s winch perfectly. I also wanted the BFG KO2s for the sometimes horrible snow storms here in Philly. The KO2s are severe snow rated tires. I planned to remove the graphic but once I saw it in person on the granite crystaline color I ordered really liked it and have grown to love it actually. One day I can peel it off if I change my mind. I also wanted the rear locking diff which is available in the BC. Not sure if so on the 75th. But I'm not so sure you can order the BC from the factory anymore I thought that ended mid February. Might want to check that before too much more consideration. Like others have said though both are awesome so either way is a win! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
