    This logic makes very little sense. One look at this Jeep shows you that it’s not a Sahara. Rock rails, steel bumpers, mud terrains, Rubi hood, etc..
    In previous years, the Moab was priced under the Rubicon which made sense. If that is not the case here, then whoever ends up getting one is just taking an L

    Edit: I also take an L for thinking those are mud terrains

    The JK Moab wasn't built on a Rubicon platform either. It came standard with limited slip rear, D44/D30 combo and 2.72 transfer case. Metal bumpers, rock rails and a few other details.

    Moab, Utah is the Jeep Mecca of the world and the "Moab" edition should be built on the Rubicon platform. I was thinking the same thing when JK Moab came out.

    Still laughing at this 10 mins after reading. Awesome post. I’d buy the thing, if green, manual and at the right discount. Sahara vs. Rubicon, everyone wants a Rubi but if 95% of your driving time is to and from work everyday, and you aren’t swimming in $cash Sahara is a very nice ride - this Moab version makes it even better.

    Webster's definition . . .

    Jeep: A selfish and excessive desire for more of something (such as money) than is needed.

    I commute daily in a Rubicon with 37's. The ride is great!

    Massive amount of hate from probably a lot of the people complaining about not having any special editions a few months ago.

    Right..I was gonna ask...so what's NEW about it? I'm expecting something ridic awesome inside the cabin or something amazingly hawttt under the the hood or with the chassis...but at this point, I don't see anything different except the "moab" badge?

    Am I missing something here? Is it a Sahara with a Rubi suspension maybe? Someone help a sistah out! :movember:

    *edited*: Rubicon hood, rubicon front bumper, Moab badge? Is this it?

    IDK...I like it tbh, but just not sure if it's a Sahara, or Rubicon or a Hybrid of both.

    I like the look of it much better than the Sahara and those black rims are litttt! Freakin love it! Just trying to see what Jeep this is supposed to be? Something totally different or a combo? *shrugs* I hope to see some on the road tho, so I can giggle and wave! :rock:

    Its no different than any other special edition wrangler, all in styling, but pretty much the same under the hood.

    Isn’t that the exact point being made? A Rubi that commutes all day. So basically a bunch of extra parts that look cool and aren’t really needed for the environment it was meant for...

    Oh I like it too. It looks a lot like they took their J-Wagon concept from Moab and took the snorkel and auxiliary lights off.
