2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport Altitude 4x4
@mnforester, we just received it on June, 25. We didn’t order it…it was the ONLY one we could find with the 3.6L V6 and a manual transmission in the state of Oklahoma. It’s got WAY more on it than we’d prefer but it is what it is. There are a few right hand drive manuals here in Oklahoma…assuming for rural route mail carriers. This is why most everyone is paying sticker price, even for Ford & Chevy 4x4 pickups.

It’s got 220 miles on it, wife just drives it to/from work and grocery shopping. We previously had a new 2017 Renegade Latitude 4x4, 1.4L turbo, manual transmission in Solar Yellow that we paid $16,780.00 (stole it) cash for in 2017. I sold it (under book) for $16,600.00. So, we drove it 14,300 miles over four years for $180.00.

The used market is bonkers.

But to answer your question, yes, we like it. We would have considered the Willy’s but there are none to be found configured the way we wanted.

Got the lift installed (2.5”) and new rims and tires 35”), plus the side rails. I’ll be working on the rest of my wish list really soon!
I’m enjoying Jeep life already and haven’t even had much time to do anything fun with her! Used the diesel pump for the first time in my life though, it’s the little things!

Thanks for the note! Enjoy. Hopefully we get ours soon.

2021 JLUR
Hiya! This is Jacq. Our little adventure family is my hubby, Jeremy, our ACD mix, Zyra and myself.

We are totally new to the Jeep world and since we purchased our 2021 JLUR in mid April, we wonder why it took us this long to get one!

My hubby and I have done some minor DIY mods with our Jeep, which we have named the Nacho Honey Badger, and plan to see if we can install the Metal Cloak 3.5" Game-Changer Suspension ourselves and some 35s when the time comes.

We love taking the Jeep out on easy/moderate off-road trails and find disperse camping.

Looking forward to see what everyone's rig and build is and learn all the tips and tricks from everyone here!

2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimites Sport S
Hello all! My name is Eric and I'm from Alabama. I recently traded in my 6 speed '18 JLUS for a 2020 sport s. It was always difficult trying to teach my wife to drive a manual trans, so we decided to trade it in a few weeks ago for the sport s with a auto. It's my (mostly) daily driver and we can't wait to start having adventures with our 3 kids. So after much thought, I named the jeep Gray Ghost.

Jeep Wrangler
Figured I'd share my story. Became a first time Wrangler owner last month. Have always been into performance cars. Owned various models like the S2000, WRX STI, Civic Type R, Bmw 335, Infiniti G37s, etc. I consider myself an auto enthusiast, having owned over 20 different cars in my lifetime.

As my kids started getting older, I found myself wanting some additional interior space, kids wanted that as well, and so my search began for a replacement vehicle. I love manual transmission vehicles. I love convertibles, and being in new England, I was hoping to find something with 4WD or AWD.

Wrangler was really one of the very few vehicles that ticked the primary boxes I was searching for and while I prefer to have a fast and tight cornering vehicles, I decided to make the Wrangler the lifestyle vehicle that is best for me and my kiddos.

Ordered a 6 speed Sahara with a soft top and have been really enjoying my time with it. Most importantly, kids love it and want to ride in "big blue" all the time.

It's been fun doing the jeep wave as well. I appreciate a community that shares a passion to their vehicles where you focus more on smiles per gallon than anything else.

Hi everyone! Just joining the JL community as we’ve purchased an ‘18 Rubicon Unlimited. You all might recognize this as RELBUS’s JLUR before his recent upgrade. It’s my wife’s daily driver now and she’s in love with this thing. One of my sons has a JK so we have two Jeeps in the driveway.

2021 JLUR
Hello from Iowa. Purchased a JLUR in April wanted the sting grey above everything else. Had a diesel ordered back in October and after 12 weeks canceled the order. So the search was on out of dealer inventory, and I don’t know if it is a “Jeep thing” but dealers around central Iowa did not seem interested in selling Jeep’s. But found a dealer finally that wanted to sell me a sting grey Jeep they had in stock. So here I am. Lol 👋
