Had a JK 2-dr Sahar from 07 -14 and sold it due to have a kid on the way and wasn't enough room. I have been dying to get back in a Jeep. After 6 years I finally can. Just placed my order today. Can't express how excited I am to get back into a Jeep. Here is what I ordered.

Welcome to the forum! If your JK was a stick, you will absolutely love your JLU. The transmission has made many good changes. Ex: the Clutch throw isnt as long.

Your two higher gears (5th and esp 6th) will rarely be used unless you go regularly above 70 MPH. The 4th does a lot of people good on the highway, particularly those living in big metro areas like NYC, LA, Toronto, Chicago or Miami.

Thank you @631_Islander My JK was a stick too. Love driving stick. It amazed me on how hard it is to find a manual Rubi around me. The dealership has 24 JLs and all are auto.

I'd love to go back to a stick shift but my wife is adamant. Once told me that if I get a stick shift then she will stop playing with my Stick.

Just spoke with a rep at Jeep, there is no ETA at this time to build Hellayella Jeeps. So who knows when my jeep will be done.

Exercising patience will be hard!

Closed the deal on a 2 door Sarge Green Willys on Dec 29th. Have a VIN and build sheet. Dealer says its waiting on a rail assignment, ETA approximately 25 January, but could be longer.

Aaaaackkkk!

Yeah, it's hard. I placed my order the day before you and no build sheet yet and no ETA. Rep for Jeep stated they have no ETA when they will build a batch of Hellayella as (from my understanding) build a batch of a single color at a time.

Copy that. I managed to intercept dealer stock that was ordered from Oregon, but still sitting in Toledo waiting for the train.

Here's hoping for a Hellayella build run in Toledo very soon!
