    Sounds good . I signed a purchase order for a Punk'n JLUR this morning. It's out there in never, never land waiting for ordering to actually open. February 5? I hope so.

    Wondering what Punk'n will actually look like ... no photos yet. The artist's rendering makes it look a little more subdued than Mango Tango. Have any of you seen photos of this color yet? (even if it's on a different vehicle?)

    I'm pretty sure it will be amazing. I love Mango Tango, but I think that the combination of Punk'n and the advancements in the JL versus the JK should be everything I could ever want in a daily driver Jeep that would be ready for anything. Can't wait. Must see in person as soon as possible. If it is as I expect, I'll be ordering soon.

    I asked Craig about the February 5th for punk'n. He said he has not been told that is happening. So we will wait and see. I have my order waiting for the release though.

    If you are indicating you think you might find a combo you like with manual on a dealer lot vs ordering I wouldn't get your hopes up. Due to the overwhelming sales volume being automatics dealers don't order many manuals for themselves to put on the lot. I'd guess most manuals on dealer lots are ones ordered for a customer that then didn't complete the deal. My suggestion would be to just plan on ordering when the various options you desire become available for ordering - you will get exactly what you want and probably have better leverage on price negotiation as well.

    I am not in a hurry and not making any decisions until the turbo-4 is released. I initially thought I would be willing to give up the manual transmission if I liked the turbo-4, but the lag time has me leaning back to the manual for now. Either way I am keeping my manual TJ.

    I used to think I would only drive manuals. I loved that I could start my first old beater car by popping the clutch while rolling backwards out of a parking space. I loved choosing my shift points on my next car, a new-used sporty sedan. Even non-sporty cars can feel sporty with a manual. Shortly after getting married & teaching my wife how to drive a manual, we bought our first car together ... an automatic SUV since she'd be driving it more than I would. We eventually ended up with only automatics. I missed shifting & thought I'd get a manual sports car some day.

    Now is the moment of truth. We're finally in the market for another car ... and it's mainly my choice. And, I'm getting an automatic Wrangler.
    While I think I could shift pretty fast, the 8spd auto is excellent. Traffic jams are doubly annoying in a manual over an auto. I'm no rock crawling expert, but when I did crawl, the auto I drove performed great. I love certain things about manuals, but I'm not sure if I'll ever own another.

    Why a manual for you?

    I did not intend the hijack the Punk'n thread into a discussion on transmission preferences, but the question of manual or not does determine whether I need to order or not.

    Not as many "good" reasons as there used to be. Gas mileage isn't better than auto any more. I do like the control. I often engine brake to improve braking in snow and slippery conditions. If I am getting stuck in snow, the forward to reverse rocking is quicker with manual (at least compared to the automatics I have driven) and that rocking will usually get you out of it isn't really buried. I do not live in the city where stop and go matters (I can see the value of auto in stop and go). I do not live where there are many hill starts. I would still prefer manual even if the cost was the same, so paying $2k more for something I do not really want just bothers me. And a not good but a satisfying reason is when someone asks if they can drive my Jeep, and I respond "if you can drive a manual", I really like to see the dejected look on their face if they can't.

    I hope we can get this with black cloth seats and not the tan leather that the online build forces!

    All good points. While autos make the most sense for me at this time, I do still miss driving a manual.

    Back to Punk'n ... I went to the Detroit auto show yesterday hoping for Punk'n on some vehicle ... Dodge, Chrysler, Ram, Jeep, ... but nothing. Sorry all. There were no Jeeps on display that we haven't already seen via LA. Looks like we'll need to wait for actual production to begin before seeing the color.
