Why the cat? Should be a bad ass bulldog up there...
Dog’s are too nice to drive tanks, they are man’s best friend. Cats are azzholes.
Besides, Grumpy Cat and I share the same personality.

I think I have the purpose of the MOAB figured out. When the JL was designed the Rubicon's fenders were jacked up to accommodate the bigger tires. Some of us were not fans of those changes and preferred the look of the JKR/JKUR. The MOAB replicates this look, that a few of us still wanted. Its not a high volume trim like the Sahara and the Rubicon but it does still fit a purpose. Now if I ever do change out my tires I'll be MOABing on a budget, lol.

Just kidding. I totally agree. I am looking for a slightly more aggressive look. Trying to research wheels and tires. Probably by next year will replace wheels with something like Rubicon or something dark. I like the dark look on the rims. Tires, I am not sure what I want to do. I would like a little wider stance, but not too wide.

I think the saharas are geared toward soccer moms but there are those “certain females” that prefer something more masculine.... know what im sayin......

So according to @UKCATS the MOAB is only 60% as effective as a Rubicon off road... :movember:

Please tell me your hard Data....:giggle:

Honestly I haven't found the limitations of my own Sahara yet, except for the time I got forced into the ruts of my buddy that runs 37" Cooper SST Pros and I was sitting on my axles and had to back down the hill. :facepalm:

So, In my research on possibly upgrading my tires I went and test drove a MOAB. I think I'd need to wheel far more often than I do to go with something that aggressive. The Falken Wildpeak MTs had a smoother ride so that would make the decision between the two Jeeps pretty difficult.

They almost didn't let me drive it. Someone was putting a deposit down on it as I got there. Overall, I think I'd like the HellaYella with a black top but I really wouldn't throw that one out of my driveway. I'd feel guilty not taking that into the Mud every day though and put those KM2s to better use than daily driving to work. lol

I saw another Moab today on the highway. It was all red with the all black wheels. I was thinking it looked pretty good from the back. But then it drifted a bit off the pavement and got stuck right away. I just feel so sorry for these guys with no lockers.

They had the Moab on the jk too... let’s be honest it’s a Sahara for someone that wants to look like they off-road... that being said I am finding that the dealers are 2-3% more aggressive on them.. so that might be worth giving up lockers, slightly stronger front axle .. and spending the money towards a teraflex lift, method wheels, and quick disconnect to get me with in 95% of rubicon capability with a custom look, more ground clearance, and no red dash or stitching
