Tom,

Put me down as delivered. Ordered 1-25-20 and delivered on 3-25-20. Awesome vehicle!


Congrats! I too had ordered the lower body graphic and was wondering what it was going to look like.

Does anyone have a good contact at Larry Miller Jeep in Idaho?
I talked to the fleet sales manager & he said, "We do not discount Rubicons off list price & the diesel demands a premium" :facepalm:
What’s he mean by premium? It is $6000.00 on the MSRP

I ordered mine the other day from LHM in Sandy, UT. They've issued a VIN but that's about it thus far. He did give me as good a deal as I've found.

Well, lookie here. Check out what just showed up on my doorstep.
I’ll do everything I can to get these out this weekend.
I messaged you a couple days ago if you voted. You get first crack at these for the rest of the week. After that, it’s first come first serve. There’s only 7 “The O.G.” stickers left from this discounted run. After that, if people want me to make more, the price will unfortunately go up by one USD to cover the actual cost of printing. I had no idea just how many people would be asking for!
Put me down for one!!

What was the MSRP? What did you pay before taxes? Thanks for any info. I live in Salt Lake County.

The batteries on diesel engines are strong and big and there is a good chance you have two (I cant remember if that was a stock thing). In any case, a modern, quality winch won't draw too much from your rig and is likely not a big deal on occasion. This is a debatable point but it is argued to be safe and just run your rig. It would be terrible to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with a dead battery AND precariously wedged on a crag. The biggest selling point (IMO) for a high idle is two fold;

One, after heating up the engine from hard work or driving fast, you can let the motor idle at high to pump the fan, coolant, and oil through the system to even out the engine temps through the block/heads/intake and turbo. Run it for a good ten minutes or so, kill the high idle and let it chug for a few seconds to equalize the fuel rail and then shut her down. This is good practice to protect the engine overall.

Second, a high idle allows for a more refined air/fuel mixture and burns cleaner. Idling typically runs rich, which causes incomplete combustion and substantially increases soot production. Soot buildup clogs EGR systems and your DPF prematurely. This leads to expensive repairs to the EGR and increases the frequency of cycling of the regen which dramatically impacts MPG and DEF consumption. If you leave your rig to sit and idle for extended periods of time, turn up the high idle to protect against soot buildup. Think about remote start, i have a bad habit of warming up the car and then realizing 15 minutes later i've made three trips back into the house or office to grab stuff or talk to someone on my way out. Or, if you live in a very hot area, the air conditioning works a whole lot better when high idle is on.

Hope that answers your questions. High idle is a big selling point for me in the Tazer.
So in reality it’s primarily to benefit the engine and exhaust systems rather than winch function directly. I do wonder how much modern diesel engine fuel mapping at idle has addressed the soot production issues of generations past. It shouldn’t be that difficult to run a smooth idle with less soot using modern injectors and computer controls.
