Finally decided to bite the bullet and get the 4xe.

I guess I waited too long because the Chief Blue I really wanted was no longer an option, so I went with red. I don't love the red. I think it's kind of flat. I wish it were a pearl or metallic, but I didn't like any other available colors better, so this will be a decent platform. I have ideas for sprucing up the surface. More to come on that.

I got a great deal when every other dealership was telling me demand was too high, so it would be MSRP or higher. ~6% below invoice. Call Andrew Crimando @ Fort Collins Jeep. Sure, it was two states away, but I wasn't exactly broken up about having to drive the new Jeep across Colorado and Utah, nice and slow to break it in.

I couldn't get any straight information on the 4xe Rubicon dimensions before I bought mine. I saw that it was one inch taller than other JL Rubicons, but couldn't get total numbers. So, I measured everything in preparation for the lift. I'll post the updated dimensions after, but here is the "Before."

I’m really liking my rebound pro’s on KO2’s. Think you will too.

Hi Joe, I actually live in Fort Collins and am looking to order a new 4xe - did you do anything special to receive the 6% below invoice? I'm assuming the price didn't include the federal tax credit (only on leases I believe)? I wanted to ask before heading into the dealership. thanks
