Been a while since I have posted anything (over a year) and I spent time just watching and staying up to date on the forum here. Turns out that life happened and I was not able to take delivery on my original Firecracker JLUR order placed back in Nov of 2017. She arrived around late March 2018 as expected, but I had to withdraw and let them sell her to someone else....it was a sad day, but first world problems I guess. Well the wife and I finally acquired one (for her), 2018 2.0L auto, Rubi, Certified pre owned with only 3,200 miles. The dealer was asking $44,500 but we talked them down a little, and with the positive equity in her Jeep (white JKUR in the background) we walked out just over $40k with tax/tag/title and got a 7 year 100,000 mile certified vehicle warranty on top. Shes not the 3.6L Firecracker Red 6 speed manual I wanted initially but shes gorgeous on her own.....and I have to admit the 2.0L is quite peppy with a 28mpg average for an unlimited on 33s. I plan to just keep on rocking my 2016 JKUR for a while and might visit the Gladiator option in a few years. We are glad to have finally gotten ourselves a JL to say the least!

It's a beauty for sure. Congratulations, and I'm sure your bride will enjoy that new Rubi.

I like the new Rubicon graphic, I don't think I've seen them side by side like that.

I may be mistaken but I believe that new graphic surfaced around 2013 with the 10th anniversary Rubicon, and was used on a few different Rubicon trim packages through the years like the Recon, and Hard Rock I think. But yea its a much better look in my opinion also, over the smaller standard letters.
