Adios B4000, Hello Wrangler!!!

Got $2,000 for the B on a trade-in, jumped at the opportunity and went all in on a new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport in Cosmos Blue. Auto w/ tiptronic, tow package, 3.6L V6 thats pushes 285hp, and appearance package (upgraded wheels, tires, and 3 piece hardtop). The difference is night and day, best decision I have ever made.

Thanks for everything guys, I'll still linger around here and there. I know Wrangler Forum won't even come close to this site.

On to the pics, next to my roomates 2012 Cruze.





And showing Hurricane Irene who's boss :thumb:

Will do Taylor. And thanks Steel.

I plan on custom made rock sliders, custom front and rear bumpers, 4" suspension lift, 35" KM2's on a to be determined black wheel, tinted front windows, bikini soft top for the summer, tube half doors, and color matched Wet Okole seatcovers. I have a 3 year plan for all this to take place.

Looks good! I've always liked them but the 3.8L or whatever was the in JKs first were sooo gutless! Glad they stepped up to something more powerful! What axles are they using these days?

I have an HD Dana 44 in the rear and a Dana 30 up front. The Rubicons have the 44s front and rear.

No, sorry. I totally forgot.

And thanks Korey, if not for me working at Target and seeing red all day I would have had a color very similar to yours.

I'll put it this way Ty.....if you drive one, you'll buy it. Just don't get one with all the BS. I got mine without Nav and without the Sahara trim (which is only painted flares, roof, and leather option) and saved about $3,500.

The updated interior is night and day from my coworkers 2008 Unlimited, it blows the old interior out of the water.

I'm getting 17.5, which is what I got in the Mazda. Window says 19/21, and thats what I've seen on WranglerForum. But I think thats due to me driving the way I do

My first choice was Red, but I work at Target so thats a no go. Then I saw the Mango Tango and thought it was cool, and I saw this blue last and knew it was the one. Its so different from any blue on the road today.
