Very nice! You running a Blue Ox? I have to buy a tow system whenever mine arrives. Great looking Rubi. TIA
Thanks, that's my former Jeep as now I've moved to the 2 door. I'm using a Blue Ox tow bar but Maximus front tow hooks with their adaptors. Much cleaner look and more clearance up front if off road. The Rubi with Blue Ox base plate is the old setup.

I got my Sahara in Salt Lake City, UT. I spent the next two days driving the 1,000 miles back to northern Washington State.

Drove it about 3.5 hours, 200miles, back home from the dealer. Should have been closer to a 3 hour drive but there was some construction. Not complaining at all. I was without a Wrangler for almost 8 months. It felt good to be back in one. I still loved ever minute of the trip back home in the Wrangler, traffic snarls and all!

Damn it! I've got the perfect gif, but it scored me a 24 hour ban the last time I posted it. Those pants I wore were never the same. I'll leave it at that. :bandit:

Left the dealership with 17 miles on the odometer. Drove the 5 miles home then went right back to the dealership with the paperwork from the sale of my prior JLU so I could get $1700 back on the remainder of the unused extended warranty.

Put two stickers on and then found a group and trail to go on. Paper temporary tags fresh from the dealer.

smiled the whole way home... had a 2023 Macan... AMAZING piece of engineering.. but it was automatic. I grew bored after 9 months... sold the macan and bought a 2023 manual Willys 2 door. I LOVE this thing. my other toy is a manual Porsche 718 spyder... I can honestly say, I enjoy driving the JL for difference reasons just as much as the porsche. it has a real emotion to it... im a lucky guy!
