2018 Ocean Blue JLU Rubicon
The only good reason to get the Moab over the Rubicon is for the Sahara's auto 4H transfer case for those who are sure they have no use for lockers or sway bar disconnect. I can absolutely see the appeal of the Moab over the Sahara, visually, but you are paying for it.

The real disappointment is that it doesn't bring anything NEW to the wrangler lineup. Just some decals and badges. Past special editions had different bumpers, hoods, etc.

I think I may get one...I was having a hard time deciding between Sahara or Rubicon. The Moab is only $1,000 more than a Sahara I'd build...and a little less than a Rubicon I'd build. Plus get some extra things. I have no use for lockers or sway bar disconnects...no trails around here. I think the Sahara platform would be bettee for the snow around here. Only thing I dont like is the mud tires.

I had to look up you zip to see what area you were in. Your winters are a little longer then Chicago. Moab sounds like it is the best of both worlds for you. I don't like the mud tires either, too noisy and they are not as good in snow and ice. They should have put the KO2s on the Moab. I bet you would have no problem swapping for KO2s. with someone.

It's too bad they don't make tires a selectable option.

That’s a terrible attitude. You are aware that a vast majority of Rubicon’s sold never see dirt right?
LOLLL! This is correct! Most people I know have no idea where to offroad and there are so many Jeeps in my city that are purchased for "city life".

But tbh Idc if their Jeep never sees dirt. I'm only concerned about what I'm doing in mine...whether I'm offroading, commuting in the city, taking pics of its glorious green with my nails or matching bike. :cwl:

I have no concern or annoyance with anyone that has a Jeep to "mall crawl" whatever that means. As long as nobody is intending to physically harm someone with their Jeep, I'm chilling!

Tbh I didn't expect there to be so much negativity behind this Moab?
I'm quite surprised about this lol. Shrugs.

Honestly, I think a lot of the negative people just ordered or did a major purchase. Now something comes along that might have filled their needs better, so they’re getting defensive. Other than the mud tires, I like this Jeep. I won’t trade my Rubi for it though.
Maybe it’s just another form or the Jeep sibling rivalry that exists between models now. Or maybe they’re just bitter people.... who knows.

"Jeep sibling rivalry"??? Why does this foolishness exist?! SMH.

I wouldn't trade my Sport for it either because I'm into modding as that allows my creative vibezzzzzzzz to flow! Modding = my signature, my stamp. But I have madd love for this Moab!

I hope they release the "build option" on Jeep.com so I can play around with the color LOL! :giggle:

You know what I’m talking about.... the ones who say your Sport will never be as cool as the extreme super awesomeness of my Rubi...... while that might be true, it’s not something I’d ever say:giggle:.
I like them all pretty much. I wouldn’t put any factory model or editions down... just some are not for me. I’d probably even wave at a Dragon edition....just never be seen in one :cwl:

Hahaha!!! I feel this!
I LOVEEEEE my sport! There were some things that I didn't like about the Rubicon, Sahara or Sport S; and I can afford any of them.

Just the Sport was perfect for me in everyway, exterior/interior (loveee the manual locks and windows!) I only wish its front bumper was steel, but working on getting that "fixed" now lol. Every time I see Lil' Hulk I giggle. I think it's the most gorgeous thing on pavement....I'm smitten <3

Glad you love your Rubicon, and hope you love it as much as I love my Sport :)

And okay, explain "Dragon edition"? :movember:
