You'll learn how to drive the manual pretty easy. Back in mid 2000s my sister wanted an Audi TT and back then they only did them in manual. I taught her how to drive a manual in my 89 YJ in a single evening.

she drove it home and shifts gears like a pro fast and furious.

You'll love the manual and it'll be even funner since you are new to the stick
I totally agree…. Once you get used to manual shifting it becomes 2nd nature and you don’t even think about it. 👍

Also 1 benefits is the auto start/stop doesn't kick in if you hold the clutch down at a light.
Long lights I put in neutral clutch out, let ess stop. Short light or stop signs I keep in gear and hold the clutch down so it does not auto stop

Did you buy that tow hook or have someone paint the stock one?
Bought the factory spray paint, removed the hook and painted it myself. Turned out really nice. It was easy to do when I took off the bumper for the reflector light change

Matte for me. Fits with the rest of the decals already on it. I was actually tempted to do the equivalent of "surf blue" to match the 4xe colors but figured it wouldn't stand out as well.
There are a couple ways it could be done with the blue for sure. If anyone wants this dual color version I can load it up for ordering as well:

So is the standard gecko edition an outline and you can see the color behind it or is it a solid color? It would be cool to have something that matches the rubicon emblems, Its matte black in the center and then whatever that red is as an outline.

Could you get a different color than blue like purple?

The standard version is cut out anywhere you see green in my sample image. Totally possible to make a standard rubicon version with matte black and dark red. Purple is also a possibility as well as all the other colors in the catalog!

I have loaded up the dual color version here. Matte black with dark red is the combo that will match a standard rubicon:

do you recommend using something like Rapid TAC to help with positioning and bubbles?

Couple drops of dish washing soap like Dawn in a spray bottle of water works fine.
For something so small, I usually would apply dry, but rapid tac or home-made fluid won't hurt them at all. Just be sure to let everything dry fully before removing the transfer tape.

Sometimes I assemble 2-color versions with clear transfer tape which takes much longer to dry than the paper tape - I need to be able to see thru when combing the colors and the paper tape can be difficult with that. Unless you are real concerned with being able to pick it up and reposition it, I would just use the top hinge method and do them dry.

Forum discount is built in. All of my customers come from somewhere that would deserve a code, so I just pre-discount it all.
