Default 2015 JK

For some reason my wife wanted this. Pretty basic JKU: Freedom Top and 3.73s as only options. I used a "Supplier Discount" for 1% below invoice @ $28.5K. I really wanted Rubicon, but I can't justify a $35K - $40K shitbox that gets 15 mpg.






And just for kicks, here's an awesome CJ7 I saw at the Unlimited Offroad Expo in Louisville this weekend. It was perfect.

Gonna try to find some Rubicon tire/wheel takeoffs, Bestop soft top, and rock rails for the time being. Since my old lady is driving it, I can only do little things.

Why would you put longarms on to run 37's? Just put some PSC fenders on it and it'll run 37's stock.

I like that color. I'd keep the steelies and put some RIG tires on them. I like that look.
