I am very pleased with it so far. I currently have a JK, so no big surprises from the JL - except the $$$. It rides and handles great - compared to a JK on 37s. I like the new location of the locker and sway bar switches, the visibility is much better than the JK with the bigger windows and the new gizmos are awesome - I really like the backup camera, the NAV system, Uconnect, etc.
Thanks for your insight:)

Looks really good with 33s and black rims!
Thanks! I was leaning toward Mojito, but the red is the best compromise between what my wife and I like. Compromise or not, I smile every time I see it. :like: You'll have to post some pics of your Mojito when you get it!

Picked up our new Rubicon in Cottonwood, AZ on Saturday morning and drove straight to Sedona to try it out.

Exactly how a Jeep should be broken in. How were your impressions with your new Jeep in Sedona?

Where to start! I'll start with the interior and how it feels. I have the leather trim seats and it is impressive. The fit and finish and the quality of all the materials is top notch. The JK was utilitarian, the JL feels high end. I love how everything is setup, the buttons and dials are nice to operate and the Uconnect system is pretty impressive. I like having the physical buttons for the radio and climate control and not having them all controlled by the touchscreen, but you can. There is so much info to be had on the driver's dash! Like tire pressure, how your drivetrain is set, fuel consumption and miles left, operating temperature for all the engine fluids and you can customize the dash! The Navigation System was great when I drove down from D.C. It actually showed the lanes on the driver's dash, with an image of the lanes to take or stay in for the coming exits! The weather has been cold and wet here and the Uconnect even gave weather warnings in the area and you can see the weather map!
Now the driving experience. It is so much better than the JK! The steering is more positive, less steering play so it tracks better. The outward visibility is awesome! You can see all around you, no problem. Having the Blind Spot Monitor helps too. The backup camera is one of the best I've seen. The image is very sharp, higher res than most I've seen recently. Still bumpy, but I like it, less bounce I think than the JK. As for the wind noise, yes it's there. Higher at speeds, but I really don't think too much about it. It kind of sounds similar to when you drive with a window open with a slight crack, not the whistling but the wind rush. I can't compare it to the JK, I drove the soft top. I didn't get the JK because I knew I wouldn't like it as an everyday driver, but the JL fixed so many of those issues that it makes it livable to drive it everyday. Did I mention, it gets great gas mileage!
Thanks for the feedback. Glad you’re loving it.
Congrats, enjoy.

Not sure why/how we got plates during pick-up...maybe it’s an IL thing.
