Thanks HealthRebel!
Glad to hear you're happy with your 2020. I will have to give more thought to getting the LED's. Lots of people tend to like them.
You’re welcome.

The factory LED lights really are amazing. Well worth the $$$ in my opinion.

I was under the impression that 2020 deliveries were a couple of months out. When did you order yours ? Plus it doesnt seem possible to even build a 2020 on line yet.
I ordered on 07-11-2019 and picked it up on 08-15-19. 35 days total. Pretty sure 2020 production started on 07-22-19. If you follow other posts, lots of folks on the forum have theirs already, a lot of them before me.

True, building on line is not possible. But, not many changes compared to the 2019 models.

Seems Jeep took off pretty quick initially but maybe has slowed down because of inventory challenges. Not sure.

But, they’re out there!

Dale, be sure to order the anti-spin rear differential if you end up ordering your new JL, it's the best $560 you can spend IMO. You get the bigger Dana 44, the Limited Slip diff, and the All Terrain tires (instead of the mini-van Michelins that come on the non LSD sets)
Thanks blnewt. That is on my "must have" list if I decide to go with a Sport S.

Maybe the dealer lied to me hoping I would buy something off the lot. Hey, enjoy your new Rubicon.

I think you're right on target. The dealers kinda want to be all hushed about the 2020's so they can sell off what they have.

2020 JLUR Sting-Gray
I've had my 2020 Sting-Gray JKUR for about a week now. Coming from a 17 JKUS.

I also noticed the steering was very loose initially, but has been better since I adjusted the tire psi. Same with the transmission "flutter" upon slowing down. Otherwise, I think everything is very much what I saw in the 2019s so there is nothing dramatic I've noticed so far.

One minor difference I did see is that my 2020 JKUR came with a hood lock keyed to the fob. This wasn't on my invoice so I assume it is standard now?

Interesting... maybe it was a dealer special but it looks factory and there was no dealer charge or line item on the sticker.

I don't have that lock on my 2020 JLUR 2.0 either.

Congrats on your new Rubi! You chose the best color of them all.

Is that a 1st generation Juke peaking in from the side? I traded my 2nd gen for the Rubi, but my wife still has hers.

How is the power on the 2.0 now? Did you drive a 2.0 with BSG? Any differences?
I have driven both now and I have seen no power difference at all. The auto start/stop was a little smoother of a transition in the 2019 with the BSG.

Yep - that's my daughters 2013 Juke Sport!
