2022 JLURXR on order
Anyone ordering the full time transfer case? We sometimes get patchy snow and ice and I'm considering adding it. I've only ever had full time systems with my cherokees and I'm not sure what life is like without it.

Well, here I sit still spending money on "extras" while I wait. My 07/09 order is any day now. It shipped and took the train ride to Florida and according to dealer it's waiting to get here on the next truck transport to the Southernmost location in the US. (Key West) I have stalked the dealership multiple times peering through the fence to catch a glimpse. I'm afraid if they check their security cameras they will be posted my picture. I can hardly get through one day without looking for something to buy, a picture one of you lucky ones posted on your new ride or a video I might have possible seen.(Hah) I'll need therapy soon, but until then if you can think of something else for me to buy let me know. I was considering the side fender marker lights??? If you have them can you post a photo or give your thoughts otherwise. BTW-the UPS guy really hates me right now!

I swapped out my red dash panels for the leather wrapped/red stitched ones. Also installed the mopar screen protector while I had the dash apart.

I''m ordering almost the same thing any day now - already have pricing. For 2022, they are not offering the Hardrock Slider Step. I'm on the fence with the Roof - Going with the One-Touch vs. Black Hardtop w/Black Flares. Sames goes with the Steel Bumper. I just sold my 2019 Sting Gray MOAB.
The last item I'm agonizing about is going with the Matte Black Grill or the Body Color. Will match with wheels and N-FAB Black Textured Steps. Any thoughts ?

For those who've already received your XRs, what RPM are you registering at highway speed? I'm wondering what real world results are for the 4.56s vs. what the 4.88s will be. Per a helpful JK forum read, the 4.56 w/ 35" tires should be about 2900 RPM (35" tires rotate about 594 times/mile --> 594 x 4.56 = 2708 RPM @ 60MPH; and 4.88s would be about 2900 RPM).

Thanks in advance for any replies. Waiting for my XR order to arrive is soooooper easy ...🤥

I have the grill picked out, body color, but I'm undecided on black or tan leather and the full time 4wd. I've had 5 months to figure it out and I'm ordering on Tuesday. Decision paralysis sucks.

I always go with Black leather vs the lighter as its easier to clean. Think Tan is more of exception than norm but hell, when you go to sell, someone may want a specific color, etc. Just happened to me on my MOAB I just sold. Right now, I'm leaning on just staying with the body color Grille - looking at 20 something builds in progress with the xtreme recon, looks like no one ordered the grill. Interesting a few had the Gorilla Glass windshield.

Where did you find the leather dash panel and how hard was it to replace?
They are a Mopar part (6AC241R3AA & 6AC261R3AD)
Install is not too hard, its more nerve racking than hard lol. When popping all the dash clips it sounds like your breaking plastic, but everything went super smooth. There are a couple of how to vids on youtube if you search JL dash removal. Took me about an hour or so.

Morning all...can anyone confirm the height of their XR with hard top?
I neglected to check this before ordering and am hoping I can get it into the garage to use my hoist to remove the hardtop next spring....not the end of the world though.
Thanks for the info.

I have the same concern and asked someone to measure for me. They measured it at 75". That will clear my idiotically small door by 1.25"! lol I only got the soft top, but have the hard top currently hanging in the garage from my 2019 which I will be using on the XR if it ever gets here.
