Dunno what he means by that. My significant other drives my Rubi also and she loves it. She is the reason why I got my JLUR in an Automatic or it would have been a 6 Speed.Typical attitude from a Rubicon owner.
I have a fully loaded 4 door Rubicon. I will be looking for my second Jeep once this pandemic settles. This time I want me the Basic 2 door Sport package with only a Hardtop, an A/C and the 8 speed automatic for family reasons. Nothing else. I am just confused between whether to get the Turbo 4 without eTorque or the Pentastar with eTorque. I am leaning towards the Turbo 4 as I already have a Pentatar but without eTorque in my 2020 JLUR. However my concern is the A/C in that 2 litre motor without eTorque? Will be as good as the 3.6? If it isn't I will be hearing a lot of complaining in my house. Usually the A/Cs in a motor that small tend to shut down when standing at a red light and then restart once you start moving. Wonder is that maybe the case with the Turbo 4's without etorque also. Talk about first world problems....The argument is cute and all, but we all know the only real Jeep is the sport. Not the sport S, the manual window, manual lock, open differential sport. Real Jeeps don’t need modern accoutrements.
Always thought that ride quality between Sahara and Rubicon was in the tires.I bought 2 Sahara's, my wife loves the look of the Rubi, but the ride not so much... So, we are replacing the wheels/tires on her Sahara with Rubi wheels/tires plus a spacer to give it a better stance. I've already replaced my wheels/tires and the front bumper, etc. Love the look of my jeep and get a ton of compliments at stop lights, grocery stores, etc.
The depreciation hit you're going to take is nothing compared to how much more the EcoDiesel is going to cost you to live with as years go by. So, if $$ is no object anyhow then go for it.I do not even know how to start this thread.
So I recently purchased a 2020 Rubicon Recon. I think I needed a mall crawler! Based on my job, family life etc I doubt I will get off road much if at all.
So the recon is fully loaded, but I think it is too much Jeep. I think what I really want is a Diesel Sahara.
I know I will take a huge hit on the Rubicon if I trade it in.
What I want to do with the Sahara is to put on Rubicon take off wheels and a Rubicon hood, not lift just a different look. I will do a lot of over road and have had many diesels vehicles in the past.
So two questions
1 - How hard is it to do those modifications on a Sahara - Front and Rear steel bumpers (will parking sensors still work) and Rubicon hood? Are those mods possible
2 - Am I crazy to want to change Jeeps? I just think the Rubicon it too much and I will never use all of the features etc.
How would I approach building a Sahara like that? Thanks in advance for the comments/help.
