I wasn't completely happy with the Arctic so I found a leftover 2012 Rubicon.

Sorry for the crap pics but the best I can do with the snow.

It's a 2012. Has 33 miles on it. Only options are the Power Convenience group and non-painted hard top.

I must say it feels like a Porche with the 4.10 gears compared to the 3.21 gears which was one thing I hated.

It was crappy that night for sure. I'll get some more pics soon but it's nothing that hasn't been seen before.

I did get my slush mats, ordered my stubby antenna, and thinking about ordering ACE rails.

What didn't you like about the Arctic?

Or did it just have two doors too many?

Sorry to see you leave the Arctic club, but at least you didn't stray far. Plus, you have the proper number of doors now :D.

Was it the Arctic or just the 3.21 gears you didn't like?

Ouch, that had to hurt the pocketbook. Live and learn I suppose.

It was mostly the gearing on the Arctic I didn't like but there are some others. Had I did more research when I first bought it I would've got a Rubi. The Arctic was great but I found out after some trail runs that I did not want painted fenders/top. They get scratched really easy and they get lots of rock chips even driving normal. Then it was mostly the gears. The 6spd w/3.21's was a nightmare IMO. I've driven sticks for 15+ years and as soon as I got into the 4.10's I could tell the gear were much better. Otherwise I traded in Nav, heated seats, painted fenders/tops for D44, 4.10's, and lockers :punk:

Man I'd almost drive to Denver to pick up that Artic. I wanted the Artic so bad last year.

It's at the dealer. 5200 miles. They had a sticker of 35k on it when I saw it. MSRP was 37.5k when I bought it. They were really excited to take that in on a trade.

Congrats! You traded up if you are offroading. I have a 2012 jku with 371 which are fine but I wish I had lockers
