Congrats for the renewal. 19 years? Impressive. I will give it a try.Ordered hardtop Rubicon on 2/1 and picked it up this week. Happy with it after a week of driving and no regrets on the purchase (or wating) to replace my TJ. Still breaking it in and no off roading yet, but I have to say I've been blown away by the turning radius. I mean, I expected all the nice amenities compared to the TJ, but the maneuverability is awesome. Only downside is slightly wider than the TJ, but everything else is better. I certainly expected the turning radius to be better than my buddy's 4-door JK, but it is also way better than my 2-door TJ or frankly any other vehicle I've owned in a long time (from memory, my Datsun 510 was pretty good too )
Anyway, no issues so far. No unexpected noise from the Freedom top or whatever. Been looking for manufacturing defects given the wait and rumors, but none found. I bought my TJ new 19 years ago. I hope to keep the JL that long.
NIce! Funny-I have my grill/winch guard already packed along with my T45 Torx bit to do the exact same thing before drive off. Looks awesome!Well prep apparently meant drive the Jeep for 5 miles and test the buttons.
Had a great time giving Ryan a hard time about the wait and asking for more kick backs. It all went smooth except for an odd bit of plastic that no one knew where it came from.
Everything looked top notch.
Had to add one bit before driving home.
Thanks and yeah, give it a try! I hope to do it twice. But don't think I will make it a third time unless the model 19 years from now comes with built in life support and automatic rascal scooter launch.Congrats for the renewal. 19 years? Impressive. I will give it a try.
Good morning! I think the best part of the day is early morning and seeing the Jeep!G’morning Jeff! My gym day alarms are 3:30am. While I love sleeping in on non-gym days, I try not to sleep in toooooo much, cuz it just throws me off schedule & makes those crazy early mornings so much worse.
Yup it is! My workday starts at 7am & two or three days a week doesn’t end til 6pm, so I have to go early. I have nothing left in me at the end of the day to even attempt it. It’s all about going bright & early (well technically it’s dark & early) before my brain & body figure out what’s happening.i like to get up early , but thats just crazy.
