'21 JULRD
Hey guys. Was here a couple years ago with a JRUL and had the sloppy steering they couldn't fixed so I traded it for a Grand Cherokee, that had the flavor of a rice cake. I'm back, bought a 2021 JRULD yesterday. Steering is much improved.

2021 Wrangler Rubicon, 2018 Grand Cherokee
Just ordered this beauty a few days ago and can’t wait until it comes in. It’s my first wrangler since my 2011 JK and my 6th Jeep after a YJ, XJ and a couple of Grand Cherokees. Had way too much building the Rubicon in firecracker red, two door, tan soft top with manual trans. Dealerships just don’t order Wranglers like this in California. Stoked to finally be back in a Wrangler again.

2021 Jeep Rubicon JLU
My Dad has always driven a 2dr black Rubicon. He has always loved his jeep and soon realized that my youngest son, who has autism, really loves riding in the jeep with his grandpa with the top down. He would say, grandpa took me to get windy hair. It soothes his sensory needs and he is the most calm when he is in the jeep with my dad. Last month, we lost my dad to sudden cardiac arrest. As we have been picking up the pieces, I offered my youngest a jeep ride in my dad's jeep to which he enthusiastically agreed. My wife and I took him, top down, around town and observed a boy we have rarely seen, so calm, so relaxed, so happy. My mom had offered for me to have my dad's jeep but she needs the money, and I can do little with a 2dr with my large family. While we were riding around, my wife looked at me, and we immediately agreed that we were now going to join the Jeep family. The therapeutic value it brings for my son is invaluable and there are plenty of trails in FL to get it dirty. At the end of January I ordered a black JLUR with every package and the manual transmission (recall noted). We eagerly await the arrival of the new family jeep and the opportunity to go "bumping" (as my dad used to call it).

Greetings,

I'm from Pennsylvania. I love off-roading. I enjoyed a 2016 JKU Hard Rock (lifespan 2016 - 2019, imploded at 60,050 miles). Metal cloak game changer suspension, MC boat skid, AEV wheels and bumpers, 35's STT Pro's, re-geared to 456, upgraded driveshafts, Hauk Off-Road rock sliders.

I currently drive a Jeep Renegade, as an affordable daily driver car (which is surprisingly capable for a bubble/cross over, mall crawling vehicle).

I joined for the purposes of staying informed of upcoming Jeep Wrangler developments.

I'm really hoping that the Jeep engineers are forced to listen to the hardcore customer based. I'm glad Ford is providing factory options such as marine grade vinyl seating, 35's and rubber flooring. I'm hoping Jeep adds either a package or trim with similar offerings. I don't plan on every spending 20K on parts, labor and maintenance on aftermarket parts again.

My ideal fantasy Jeep would be:

Factory Ordered:

Punkin Orange 2-Door Rubicon with 35’s or 37’s from the factory (geared accordingly), tire carrier designed sufficiently, vinyl seating, rubber floor, manual, diesel

Aftermarket
Smittybuilt XRC Gen1 Front & Rear bumper with GEN3 winch

I would buy the crap out of this Jeep you created. I would add one thing though and that would be about a 100” to 105” wheelbase for the 2-door.

Hello JL gang! I've owned a TJ for some time, but just purchased a JLU (technically for the wife). Already ordered bumpers and LED's. Looks at lifts and wheel packages now. Thinking about a small lift with 35's.

Hello all,

Ordered a 2021 Sport S on 2-18-21. Second Jeep in the family. Bought the wife a 2018 Sahara Mojito in May 2018. Looking forward to making friends and learning about the wave!

2021 JLU
Hey all,
Been stalking the forums for about 2 years and finally picked up my black 2021 JLU Sport Altitude (V6 8 Speed Trans) about a week ago. Dream come true.

Jeep noob, so just some slight appearance mods to get me started.
- 1.75" Teraflex Wheel Spacers
- Rugged Ridge 2" tow hitch and wiring harness (mostly just for a bike rack, but would love to tow a little 2 person camper on day)
- Rugged Ridge Front & Rear Entry Door Sill Guards
- Stubby antenna (of course)
- Invictus Molle Rollbar wrap and molle pouches on the way
- Fumoto Original F-106 oil drain valve for when I'm ready for the 1st change

Lots of folks to wave at around here. Can't wait to get out into the Pines to meet them all and get it dirty.

2008 Liberty, 2019 Cherokee, 2021 Sahara Altitude
Been looking at Wranglers since 2013 but the harsh ride of the JK turned me off from purchasing. Until today when I finally ordered a 2021 Sahara Altitude with the V-6 and the Sky One-Touch top in Snazzberry.
I test drove a JL in 2018 and was surprised how smooth it rode compared to the previous version of Wrangler.
By then though I already had my Liberty and wasn't ready to pull the trigger until now.
One option I didn't get was the advanced safety as I had to try to keep the price down somewhat. My wife's 2019 Cherokee High Altitude had the adaptive cruise which I love but figured I could live without it on the Wrangler.
My first Jeep was a 1978 CJ5 with the Levi interior and top. Had a great time with that Jeep until the cold Minnesota winter the second year of owning was too much to handle. The heater could not keep the soft-top equipped CJ even remotely warm.
Been driving a Jeep Liberty since 2013 and it is still running great even if it does have 227,000 miles on the odometer.
Now the waiting begins.

Sahara Unlimited JL 2021
Hallo from Poland. No pictures yet, but I am picking my Sahara around Easter, and cannot wait. The first idea of getting Jeep (then I thought about lifted Cherokee) came to my mind 13 years ago.

Best to everyone!
