2020 Rubicon eco-diesel in Sting Gray on order
So I’m about a week away from getting my diesel. Any suggestions or pointers. Dealer wash or no wash. Anything at all let me know. Thanks.
Don’t let them wash it, they will swirl up your paint pretty good. If that sort of thing doesn’t bother you then I guess it doesn’t matter, but to me it does, I do detailing on the side and I did not let them touch one thing. Drove it home with all the plastic on the seats and whatnot. I will spend 2 1/2 to 3 full days doing a complete detail and ceramic coating myself, and the less swirls I have to buff out the better.

would love to see a front and front side angle when done.

Not sure what you mean by "front and front side angle". Here's a couple shots from today. It's finally sunny. Amazing the difference in this color depending on the angle of the sun.

That is a real eye catching color.
Mine does the same thing in different light conditions.

Told them not to wash mine but they did, took 5 hours to get the swirls out before ceramic coating it. Don't let them wash it if you are getting a ceramic coating.

I'm curious I have the build sheet link however the tracker still says my build sheet is unavailable. Any idea?

From experience always check out a new vehicle very closely. I didn't and it cost me thousands for a attorney. From what I have learned reading this thread is to check all the fuses to make sure they are seated properly. NEVER pick up a new vehicle that is sitting in the rain or in the dark. you will not be able to see paint damage or if something was repainted before you got to it. Being a diesel I would want to see if there is a way to check the hours on the engine not just the miles. If somewhere along its trip to the dealer it sat idling for an extended period I would want a forced regen performed by the dealer to clean the DPF

No problem, just tried to pay some homage to our rigs’ battle-hardened history. To each his own.

I’m a noob here—speaking of battle-hardened, I know some of you have been waiting on your rigs for going on 5+ months.
I LIKE IT

Thanks for the welcome!

Happy to help out if y’all need/want it for final touch-ups. As far as materials, Stickermule offers a wide variety of materials. Different materials/styles can be made to give everyone options for final applications.

I’m still waiting for me JLRUD. It was built last Thursday, waiting for inspection.
Jay,
I have made this offer before to use my company's vinyl gut and I would pay for the decals I just need the final decision. I like yours the best but Iits not my decision. I also have an idea on shipping. We can list them on Ebay and put a stupid reserve on them with make offer. If someone from the post orders we confirm with their username they provide and this post. Accept the shipping cost only and then you have their shipping address, name and payment for the shipping. I can help there if needed or have one of the people in the office take care of it. I hope we don't talk about this as long as some have waited for their JLRUD.

I ordered the same color and wanted to get an idea of it with that color with the bumper. I like it. Were you able to use the OEM fog lights?

Saw my first JLURD in the wild today. Very sharp looking Rubicon...Additionally I made a quick placeholder video montage for www.year1diesel.com ...let me know what you think (keeping in mind I used a couple old cell phones and some free video software on an ancient linux machine).

1994 YJ 2.5l / 2020 JLUD Willy Sport
Got my window sticker late last night, so I contacted Jeep Chat. John Robert told me my Sarge Green Willy was released to shipping with no ETA. I guess that is KZ-L status. Almost perfect timing. The 1994 YJ blew it’s water pump this afternoon on the way to work. Fortunately I have one sitting in my critical spare parts box, but still needed to rent a truck to get to work. Hopefully I can get the new one installed tomorrow.

For y'alls consideration.
This is just a low-res version for review. The original file is vector.
Small detail: I gave Eugene 7 teeth to match

his namesake's grille.

This is awesome. I'd be interested in seeing workup with and w/out Eugene. But, this definitely gets my vote.
