    It's almost too nice to take trail riding and scratch up! But what's the point of having a Rubi if you don't use it, right? Lol! Looks great! Love the color.

    Comes stock with 33s.

    Looking good! That green is sweet, a substantial upgrade over the JK highlighter green.

    If you have a min or wouldn't mind sharing (PM is fine) what'd it end up working out to MSRP vs what you actually paid / did you finance? I keep saying I wouldn't buy a new Jeep, but my God, these things are awesome.

    I’m picking up my Ocean Blue Rubi in March from a Vegas dealership. Overkill - there are dealerships that will sell at 5-7% under invoice throughout the ‘States, there are several on the east coast. Let me know if you want more info. (Depending on options, that works out to 10-14% below MSRP).

    Hey Sudz, can you tell me if your fender flares have full PPF (paint protection film) coverage from the factory, or just a patch on the leading edge of of the rear fenders?

    My order was similar, but I added the steel bumpers, knowing full well Iím going to have to beef up the rear corners.

    I love the aux switches and wiring that comes with the tow package!!

    And I love the Mojito color, but not sure Iíd want it for the 10+ years I keep my vehicles.

    Congrats! I'm guessing Jim Marsh in Vegas.

    Just a patch on the leading edge which seems to be getting the job done.
    I've been DD'ing this thing and I already had to fish out 'pebbles' from the gap between the rear fenders and body. (Known issue)
    Otherwise, so far, so good - zero issues. (knock-on-wood)
    My wife wanted Ocean Blue. Great color, but I had my mind set on Mojito! which is identical to the 2011 'Green with Envy' colored Dodge Challengers. (Paint Code: PGE)
    These JLs handle amazing. You're going to enjoy it.
    I've been on jlwranglerforums.com for a while now. good group of folks. lots of tech. I'm Z J West on there.

    I already have the welting for the stone problem: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Nice to know yours has been trouble free, I’m also on the forum (as TRZ) and it is a bit scary all the problems being reported! (Of course it is a forum, which is where people go to report problems.

    And yes, I’m buying from Marsh. I’m paying cash and I didn’t like the financing requirements of the Idaho dealership.

    Will you wheel yours?

    I was ready to order in Aug but dragged my feet based on all the reported problems with the early Ď18s.
    If youíre on that forum Iím sure youíve read them all from chronic bad steering and death wobble to poor frame welds.
    Finally rolled the dice and ordered this past December. From VON to delivery took 4 weeks.
    I plan to eventually wheel it, but not like I do the ZJ. More trail riding, less rock crawling.
    ZJ still has some life left in her. Not sure about another x-country trip in it though.
    The JL has all the creature comforts and should handle the higher elevations with ease.
    I considered the steel bumper group, but opted out after reading problems with the rear bumper making contact with the body at the corners.
    Front bumper, winch, and diff skids will be my first mods.

    Very nice neighbor.. Challenger still in the stable?

    You know i was looking for a 5.9, ended up with a 94 ZJ 5.2 84K in real clean condition. Offroad popup is done and Jeep getting lifted now.

    Let's go hit White Rim!?
