I would push for them to replace the "Sahara" cover also if it's important to you. I used to work at a seat manufacturer that made seats for Honda. We had to maintain the ability to make replacement seats that met all specs for 10 years. That may be a difference between Honda and Jeep, but still. I hope it goes smoothly for you.
I have the Jeep covers in mine. I think they are trying to secure the top and bottom when I only need the bottom cover.

I joined the club this week. Found a 2019 Black Moab with 10k miles on it. Couldn't decide between a Sahara and a Rubicon so I just split the difference. Upgraded from a 2015 Audi A6, love the new ride. My kids call it a monster truck and are already fighting over who will get it when they turn 16 (they're 3 and 5 now lol)

The only difficult part was getting the inner upper bumper bolts tight but was able to get them with 6 inch extension and socket. Did it myself and it took about 3hrs but I also did some anti-rust spraying while I had the bumper off.

My 2019 MOAB bought in Palm Coast, FL in October. Traded a 2019 Cherokee loaded Trailhawk on it. Lost a bunch of $$$ but got a great vehicle. Have over 5000 miles and no problems (other than sloppy steering). I feel good driving it!
Gorgeous Jeep!

One quick question...does the Moab have both front and rear steel bumper or is it only the front one? I have looked at many pics and cannot tell the difference...thanks.

For those who still have their KM2 on their Moab, how is it in icy/snow conditions? I live in northern cali where we only see rain..I've been fine so far. But I plan to go up to Mammoth, Tahoe, Yosemite, and other places with bunch of snow/ice this winter. What's your experience?

People sharing their stories about the KM2 have me thinking twice about if it's even safe to take it up in the winter..

Thanks!

Lol, I had them on my JK and loved them, but they did suck badly on ice and packed snow. I was able to live with them, but had to drive with a great deal of respect for their limitations.. I drove through a major snow/ice storm in Vail Pass in 2015 on the way home from the Easter Jeep Safari. They were a handfull but every other vehicle on the road struggled, too. They just lack siping for roads and streets. In deeper snow,or on roads with sand thrown down, they do just fine. I never once got stuck with them.

2019 JLUS Mojito! Moab
Jeep Wrangler ride quality is unique, therefore it’s difficult to say that it drives like any other vehicle on the road. As you can see our Moab has 315s with a small 2 inch spacer lift and fox shocks and to me it drives better than stock. As a driver you can feel the large tire presence because the Jeep will feel down on power. To battle that I added flashpaq from superchips and it seemed to help not feel sluggish. Over all the KO2s ride way nicer than the KM3s and fox shocks made night and day difference in ride quality.
With the tires and lift, what is the height of the Moab now? I"m thinking of doing something similar but worried about clearing the garage.
