How are the 2.0 turbos doing out wheeling? Been looking at the JLU looking for the 3.6 but up here in WA only can find the 2.0!
I love mine. The torque is noticeable. I had mine over 11,000’ elevation off-road and it ran great!

Have lived in the Tucson area for 15 years and love Arizona. Will be a resident for the rest of my life. First Jeep and was my present to myself for my 50th. Have the 3.6 V6 and 6-speed manual and picked it up July 15th last year. Almost 20,000 miles on it in less than 8 months and dread driving any of the other vehicles we own.

Hey neighbor. I guess mine was a late 50th birthday present as well - I'm a year older.

The factory closed down for 3 weeks so I missed getting it for my birthday by a couple of weeks.

That's my biggest issue with moving anywhere... how many trails are available?!

My wife and I are planning retirement locations, and she laughs when I'm looking up Jeep trails nearby. No trails = not acceptable

We are spoiled here in the southwest. So much wide open space and beautiful trails to drive.
I hear you! While I love the beach (especially the Atlantic), nothing beats AZ in my opinion. Once I get back there I'll be staying for good. If/when I'm able to retire it will be somewhere in AZ!

Anyone have suggestions for a shop? Prefer something more Central as I live near 32nd St and Indian School, but willing to travel for the right shop.

Have JLURD coming in the next month (hopefully, Ordered nearly 4 months ago). Looking to have Rigid lights and winch installed from 2008 Jeep installed along with Cobra CB. Ace rock rails, rhino pioneer rack with backbone, Pak racks. Looking at Artemis skid plates as well. May eventually get lift but holding off for now. Will put 35’s and go from there.

Have an overland trailer that would like a shop to be able to work on as well. Be great if one shop could/would work on both but not a requirement.

Any ideas respond here or shoot me a private message. Thanks!!!

Doetsch off-road is a great shop. They are active in the community, and easy to work with. If you have questions, you can call and talk to Todd or Ben. @JLRubiTron is also very active on this forum, and will not steer you wrong. Doetsch is also working on another location, so between the 2 it is easy to get to.

there are other great shops as well, letzroll off-road is another good one.

Appreciate the info I am planning on reaching out to Doetsch. Seem to be a good shop. I will do some research on Letzroll. Any other suggestions are all appreciated. Thanks.

id love to chat with you, even if we are too far from you. We love supporting our local community of Jeepers and think we will be the perfect fit for you. Happy to look at your overland Trailer as well. Our team has a lot of experience with those and my counterpart here Ben just finished building his own not too long ago.
