Wifey must like things to be symmetrical. Nothing wrong with that!

Yes but there is a fender alignment issue. I believe the spacing is off since the steel is fitted with the RUBI highline fender. The starting points are a bit different but you should be ok if it doesn’t bother you.

Are you thinking there will be a gap between the fender and the bumper? Thanks

It is funny that you mention that. I was parked next to a MOAB yesterday (https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/fo...-to-jeeps-post-yours.21789/page-9#post-567874) and when I looked closely at the picture of the rears, I was wondering why our back bumpers looked so different. I think it is pretty stupid that they put steel on the front and plastic on the rear. You're already getting a bunch of options included as standard, why would you put a plastic bumper on the back???

Exactly, really don't need the RUBI but want the steel rear bumper.

I'm a little late to the party, but how are the half-doors holding up? Are you still happy with them? I love the cargo net over the tubes, and for the price from EAG, it seems too good to pass up! But I need to know that someone still likes them months later...

They are still holding up and i use them everyday. Sometimes they need adjustment to the latches but that’s it. People compliment them a lot.

I have EAG's on mine too (the original all metal style) and i love them once i FINALLY got the latches adjusted correctly. For the money its a no brainer compared to the other crazy expensive ones and i like the mirrors better than the ones on my factory doors.

Thinking about a Moab, but there are not many on the lots. Is that a good sign (selling out) or a bad sign (no demand for them).

The dealerships that I've seen tend to go low on options at any trim level, which of course is not what a Moab is about. To an uninformed buyer a Moab may be a hard sell, not sure how that'll effect resell value. However the few Moabs that I've seen on the dealer lots weren't there for very long.

Moabs have dried up in the VA area. Tons earlier in the year but a recent check, and the local dealerships only have 1-2 in stock.

Hi Ken, my name is Todd, I live in the Fairfax County area, my Moab is same as yours, sting-grey, I bought it at Dulles Jeep last fall, mine is a 2018. Just curious how yours is holding up so far and any issues and how your steering is ? cheers

Hey Todd - My 2019 Moab is doing great! Just broke 2000 miles since 3/27 (purchased in MD from Len Stoler). Adding a roof rack and winch soon, but other than that very little mods. Steering is a little "floaty", but overall very responsive... The tires probably need to be deecreased by a few pounds since temps are getting hot.

Almost purchased from Dulles Jeep, but they just sold the Sting-gray at the time. Are you having issues with the steering?
