2019 Jeep Rubicon - Bikini Pearl
Hi everyone I picked up my new JL this week and want to share my impressions comparing the two.

I had:
2015 JK Unlimited Sahara Altitude edition
3.6 L, 6 Speed Manual
3.73 Gearing
33 inch KO2's
Leather seats

I bought:
2019 JL Unlimited Rubicon
2.0 Turbo, 8 Speed Auto
4.10 Gearing
33 inch K02's
Leather Seats

I find the JL feels like I am driving a much lighter vehicle. The steering in particular feels very light.
The seats in JL seem to be thinner and the JK had better seat bolstering.
The 2.0 with the 8 Speed transmission feels monstrous compared to the JK.
I don't mind the Stop/Start function at all. So far it has perform flawlessly.
The infotainment center in the JK was from the 1800's in comparison to the JL.
I went from a black JK to a Bikini Pearl JL and my wife absolutely HATES the color

Hmm, no problem, leave her at home:like:... Seriously, I think it's a really pretty color. Wait till she sees it on a nice sunny day. You could tone it down a notch by getting some custom decals to break up all that Bikini;) You have an awesome Jeep. Enjoy it:involve:

I'm a divorce lawyer with 30 years of experience. You LOVE the color and 'she was embarrassed to be seen in it'. You only have two choices here. Immediately trade the vehicle in for a loss and get a white Wrangler or file divorce papers and retain me to not only protect your Jeep but also the rest of your assets. I have offices in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, and Stinky Dead Fish in the Northwest Territories. Feel free to private message me with questions regarding retainers, etc or check out my website:

Wait, is this a joke, or do you really have a practicing attorney named Cheatem? If so that is amazing on so many levels.
