Had left rear go on my JLU Rubicon at roughly 900 miles.
Worst part was having to go to the dealer and have them confirm what I told them and sent pictures to the service advisor, just to have to wait and come back when parts came in.
All has been well since then, though.
JLUR at Daytona Beach yesterday. Great to drop the top and drive the beach. Also got a chance to drive some of the forest roads in the Ocala National Forest on the way home. Nice to put it into 4H and play for a bit!
Congrats! Another Ocean Blue Rubi in Florida! Edit: Sorry about intake valve. Good luck with the white. Nonetheless...
Did you get the door edge guards as an option or dealer installed? I don't think mine has any...
There must be a good number en route right now.
I just searched may area (33603 / Tampa) and showed 18 Ocean Blues. All Sport / Sahara, no Rubis. I still think I have the only Ocean Blue Rubi in Florida (so far)...
If memory serves me right, I believe I read somewhere on here that FCA put out a memo to dealers prior to launch, suggesting a balance of certain packages in initial orders.
What was dumb (imo) was that Florida dealers followed it and ended up with cold weather packages with heated seats...
Tampa. Second Wrangler, first was JKU that came with hard top. After 9 months changed to premium soft top I found on Craigslist. Hardtop is basically a pressure cooker here in Florida. Soft top keeps temp much more reasonable. Plus, you can drop the whole thing. I had mine down on the JLUR...
Actually haven't had the top down yet. Maybe this weekend.
700 miles on Jeep so far, though, mostly from one road trip cross Florida including some fire / sand roads through a WMA on the way home.
Very impressed with everything.
FWP (invoice) less 4% for factory order, all in all about $5k off MSRP. I'll PM you my salesperson's info. Super easy to deal with. First time in the dealership was when I went to pick it up and take them my trade. All else online / phone.
Took delivery today. Ordered 2/3, arrived at dealer 3/7.
Next to my '15 Oscar Mike that I traded in on the new Rubi. I believe I may have the first (or one of the first) Ocean Blue Rubis in Florida.
If anyone in Florida is looking for a dealer to work with, hit me up for info. The dealer...
So, it happened today. I am very happy. Will write more later, but JLUR is exponentially better than my '15 JKU Oscar Mike.
Will try to upload more pics later. This was at dealership this morning. Wanted a shot of both of them together.
