New 2010 Jeep Rubicon

Yup.. After purchasing our 02' Apex we decided one just wasn't enough. Our oldest son LOVED our so much we went and bought another.
Put a few miles on it already. Pretty much a stocker for now.
Nice deep blue, but with Tan interior.






































Oh yeah. We went all out. Running a 12v under that hood, 12" Tires and premium sound.

A little flex action going on here



No really the kiddo loves it. Already had a casualty.. (cat named Meatball)
Is it me or does every other parent who has a PW Jeep want to paint it up too

I dunno, the grill looks very CJ-ish and the doors have the s curve opening like CJ5s.

Its a TJ-5.

Yep, you are right, more CJ than TJ. I realized that after posting.

It has the fender outers of a CJ, but where they meet the grill is from a TJ. The Grill looks like a CJ grill frenched into a TJ grill (yep, I have seen pics, and it looks like it).

It has a trail rated badge which is TJ, but the doors are CJ.

The mirrors are TJ though.

I noticed you lost a headlight already. You may want to look into a front bumper with a full loop to protect them, perhaps a stinger too. Then after that I would put a RC 4.5cm lift and full skids and sliders...

Needs a winch, lockers, and a JeepForum sticker! ('bout ready for a fresh set of tires, too!) Gotta get rid of them mall-crawler low profile meats.

For gosh sakes, disco that swaybar so that axle can articulate! That huggies box almost has that Jeep on it's lid!

Serious question though... that thing actually has seatbelts in it? How fast can it crawl?

It has 2 settings 3 and 5 mph and reverse.
Just for kicks we'll probably mount some small pvc pipe we have laying around.

He should do a 4 link with some coilovers

Coilovers from a little pit bike should work pretty well.
