July 26th, 2018 was a day of epic proportions. It was the day the dealership called me and advised that the 2018 JLU Rubicon in Sting Gray, that I ordered the month prior, had arrived and was ready for pick up. I couldn't be any more anxious that day as I headed inside to meet the staff who were all huddled around my JL. It was the very first JL delivered on their lot that was coated in the most luxurious color that one could imagine.....Sting Gray! You see, I took a leap of faith when I ordered it, not seeing this color in person. I've always had a favorite Wrangler color, Anvil, but it wasn't available with the new lineup. As I entered through the doors of the dealership, the only thing in focus was my new Jeep and it felt as if time stood still as I walked around and around and around it some more, admiring it's color and the attention it was getting from the staff. This is where I began my journey as is the same for most everybody else. Build plans race across your mind, research fills your free time, while dollar signs race out from your bank balance. I'm excited to share the route my build has taken me...... mostly good, some bad, but all a learning experience. Stay tuned, you don't want to miss the Train!
