Yeah, black isn't exactly easy. my ast f150 was "tuxedo black" so, plack pearlescent. looked great up close...at 15 feet, it looked dusty. I would polish and wax it to the point it hurt to look at, and, it still looked dusty.

this black, is BLACK. much like the boss lady's rubi. wax the 2 of them up, stack park them, and, just drool.

at least I will after the noah's ark rain we're having.

Does it have any metallic flake? Because if it doesn't, it would take me back to the BMW Jet Black.. gorgeous when it's clean and no sparkling bits to take away from that mirror look. 10 years ago I purchased an E92 335i in jet black. Oh boy she was slick when it was all dolled up. But hours later the dust made it look terrible. Top it off, I work and park right off the ocean. Picture dust but white in color from the salt crystalizing on the finish daily. I had to rinse it daily and wax the shit out of it atleast quarterly. After I lost it in a car accident, I switched to white for that reason and a cheaper car. I'm too lazy for the paint up keep especially if I commute in it, literally rotting away at the Hussle.

And the 7.3 is 700lbs lighter. It’s a sweet truck! 7.3 is supposedly better off road because of the weight savings.
Absolutely!! Lighter is always better specially over the front axle. That's why I'll never own a diesel Jeep. 500lbs all engine weight over the front axle.

Mine works every time. Lockers are hard wired and I have an EVO manual smartbar control. Haven't needed either with the JL. The Tazer works flawlessly and instantly.

Great video... saw one of those GMC AT4's at 4wheelparts and they are gorgeous trucks. I was def drooling over it.

Sorry to hear man. The right one will come up. Well if production ever starts back up and runs to normal out put, perhaps you can order one and have exactly what you want.

I stopped by a dealer who has 4 jeeps with the same option I want. I was thinking I may get a better offer than over the phone.

I was wrong. Haha. I was asking for $7k off of the $52.3k msrp. The dealer was advertising up to $8k off of wranglers.

Short story short, walked across the street and ordered a F250 Tremor.

2019 Wrangler JLR
Congrats, you’ll love it! Good looking truck! I’ve got a JLR I absolutely adore and just kicked loose a 2017 F250 with the 6.7 I also loved. Like comparing apples & Germany, other than they both have four wheels on the ground. Horses for courses. I put almost 90,000 trouble free miles on my truck and it was a good fit for what I wanted it to do. Only reason I got rid of it is the new interior will be here in a year or so and then I’ll get another. I also won’t be towing anything during that time. Didn’t see much off-road in my truck as I didn’t get it for that, that’s why I got the JLR.

Thank You,
Yes I’m excited. I’m getting 7.3 ultimate tow among other options. It’s just a few thousand more than the 2 dr rubicon. Amazing value....

Picked it up Thursday. Got $4k more on my trade as well with inventory being so low.
