Picked it up this afternoon... why not get the kids out of school early to pick it up?! It's not every day you buy a Jeep. :) Downside is we have been having torrential rain and flood warnings all day. Made pictures difficult. 9 1/2 week wait was worth it!
Torrential rain? Floods? My JLUR LIVES for such conditions :rain: , then again being in SoCal such blessings can be rare so I enjoy them when I can. Congrats on the new family addition and HECK YEAH worth pulling the kids from school (odds are they'll learn more useful stuff from the Jeep than the educational institution... nothing wrong with education mind you... but still).

Welcome to the club, have had mine since July and still puts a smile on my face everyday , enjoy that Punkin , always get tons of compliments on the color from people you would lease expect , 70 year old lady in the grocery store parking lot (no offense to any 70+ Jeep owners on this site ) cheers
So true. Few months ago we went to Yosemite and pulled into the tunnel view parking area, no sooner do we get out than some lady form an Asian tour group comes running over gushing about the Rubicon, dragging her husband along to show him. No matter there were 2 other Wranglers (far more built than my stock Rubi) but they were totally ignored. Maybe because they both were dark gray (NOTHING against the gray... that's a great color) but the Punk'n is bold. Mentioned in another thread that hiking in the mountains, could see her from a mile away... works as a great homing beacon. But I would say 80% of people who comment on the Jeep (and there are LOTS) mention loving the color. Punk'n wasn't even on my short list when I went to the dealer (circumstances dictated we buy off the lot) but love at first sight.

Thanks! I am in love with the color. Keep staring at it... of course that is nothing new. I would always get a smile looking at my Granite Crystal JKU. I absolutely love everything about this Jeep... except the full doors! I miss my half doors. As soon as Jeep releases the factory half doors I will be ordering a set for the Jeep. :) Seriously though, I can't believe how nice this thing is compared to my 2014 JKUR. Loving it! Can't wait for the mods to begin!

Haha. Yeah, it handled great on the flooded roads. :) When I bought my 2014 JKUR I thought I would let my girls have it when they were old enough to drive. Since that Jeep was totaled in November it destroyed that dream. But now I am hoping the girls will have the memory of picking up the Jeep with their Dad and maybe this Jeep will be their ride one day. :)

Sumthin' about a Jeep that refuses to let dreams be destroyed... sorry to hear about your JKUR but definitely hoping for happier trails in the future for you and yours!

Joined the club 10 days ago. “Punkn Pete” was purchased in Boise and enjoyed sometime in Utah at Moab, home to CO to play in the snow and then today a long drive from Colorado back to North Texas for a visit before going back to CO. Can’t wait to see all the Punkn mods and get it on the trails!

I've had my Punk'n Rubi for a couple weeks now. Trying to decide if I should change the hood stickers to this one from pixel decals:

I've got the Punk'n Edition sticker, but that one looks awesome.

I like the pixie decal... couldn't go wrong with that for sure. But I'm partial to the standard Rubicon hood emblem. Much bolder than the JK equivalent and I love the red outlining the black.

First mod for our Punk'n. We are working on a universal bracket for the tailgate hinges. The brackets will be able to support a rotopax mount, hi-lift jack mount, ammo can mount, universal grid, etc. Here are some pics of the Punk'n with the rotopax prototype mount.

Who did you get to mount 35s on the stock rims?
Local shop did it without even a question. They're really only .5" smaller than the recommended minimum and I saw so many others doing it I figured I'd take the chance. In hindsight I shouldn't have bothered upgrading the rims and just got new ones with the tires but whatever.
