  1. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    I'll probably get some more pics this weekend. Gonna go do a little shake down run Sat.
  2. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    New shoes installed today! 38x13.5x17 Nitto Trail Grapplers on 3.5" Metalcloak GC lift. Still on stock gears and this diesel engine doesn't care at all. Absolutely thrilled with how this is turning out.
  3. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    I have a few inches to spare even with the soft top up, which sits higher than a hard top.
  4. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    3.5" Metalcloak GC lift installed! It's a little taller than I imagined, but it's growing on me. Tires are 37" Mud Grapplers with 17x10" BAD wheel bead locks w/3.5" bs. Thinking about doing the 38" Trail grapplers next as I have a little room to spare and they are lighter. Wife has been...
  5. There is no perfect engine

    I personally wish they had a 5.7 L v8 option that was a normal priced upgrade. I think i would choose that over the eco diesel. As for now, I'm loving the diesel. Its no 392 but the torque is nice. I still think the 5.7L hemi would be perfect for me, especially if it was rear wheel drive and...

    Those 2 pictures don't do this color any justice either...
  7. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    37's do fit with no lift. Lots of rubbing though when turning. Still a week or two out on the MetalCloak 3.5" lift arriving. I can attest that this little diesel pushes these heavy tires around better than I imagined without changing gears and I see the transmission hitting 8th gear without...
  8. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    My new ride finally came in. Ordered 7/15, Delivered 9/11. Got her home and unboxed the half doors. Absolutely loving this little diesel engine! I got a few mods trickling in over the next few weeks. I'll be adding my old 37" Mud Grapplers with B.A.D. Wheel bead locks. 3.5" Metalcloak...

  11. JL Window Sticker and Build Sheet Order Tracking

    I messaged Jeep yesterday and they said the build was ready with a shipping date of 8/23-9/2. I tried to pull up the window sticker with "" but it wasn't pulling up and Jeep couldn't tell me why. Just now I saw your link...
  12. JL Wrangler Diesel Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    Well, I got some surprising news. My build is apparently in the shipping phase, expected to be at the dealer between 8/23-9/2. Unfortunately, I'll be at a family reunion from 8/26 - 9/6 so I'm going to have to figure the delivery out with the dealer. Figures this would happen only cause I...
  13. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    Maybe they painted a batch of Hydro Blue Jeeps or something cause they said mine is in the shipping phase too and it's only been 6 weeks... they say it should be at the dealer between 8/23 - 9/2. Bad timing cause I'll be out of town from 8/27 - 9/6 ... Murphy's Law I guess...
  14. What did you all pay for your Rubicon??

    I ordered through Gupton motors and will pay -8% on invoice which is about 9k off MSRP of 64k. They do require dealer financing and a Tread Lightly membership.

    Dang, that seems crazy fast! I think half doors could be slowing things down for a few of us though. Let me know if you do get it this month.
  16. Let's see those JL's rockin Half Doors! 2 & 4 doors

    For me, I like being able to take a drive and drop the top and door uppers and be semi-doorless. I've been to a lot of places where I have no place to leave my doors or hardtop and making a 3 hour trip without doors has left me caught in rainstorms a few times. Plus, half doors look badass!
