I for one LOVE the red seats....really cool contrast for this color. It just seems that Jeep could do a much better job modding this thing out to be 150% over-the-top badass as opposed to taking the more conservative approach.....not hardcore enough in my opinion. The question will come down to how much are they asking....you will probably be better off modding it yourself, will look a lot more badass and it will be unique...

I live the KM2's too. I think they want like 40,000 for it. Funny cause my jeep was exactly half that price and I'm perfectly happy with it lol

22,000$

40,000$

IMO This anniversary Rubicon should of come factory with.

- All base Rubicon options of course.
- COD MV3 AEV steel bumpers
- include winch
- 2.5" lift
- AEV Hood
- 17" simulated beadlocks (at the very least)
- 33"x12.50x17 KM2 (minimum)
- Full skids

Of course the problem with a option list like this is it would prob MSRP at $50K..
Cheaper to buy a base and create your own monster..

not sure the point of this post, sorry but the new rubicon looks a lot better, no offense....18k better? Probably not....you could make one crazy jeep for 18k over a stock sport

this will always be the case, Jeep is trying to figure out how to make as much margin off of this thing as possible and let's be honest, most REAL off-roaders would prefer to modify their own stock rubicon or even a sport....not go for the factory "special edition", but Jeep knows there are tons of guys out there who just want to look cool and buy the best thing no matter what....and this is perfect for them...blingy and fun

Pretty much. But really, I don't mind all the special editions. Because if Jeep is making a lot of money, that's good for all of us. I think the call of duty edition is stupid, but people buy it for the looks, and Jeep has another 40 G's to put towards designing an even better wrangler further down the line. Wranglers sell, even to people who only want them for the looks or for the removable top/doors, and all that means is that in 15 years, there may still be nice clean JK's for people to buy. So I guess what I'm saying is I don't care how crazy the special edition wranglers get, as long as people buy them and keep buying Jeeps like crazy. Cause it's good for all of us.

I think the red seats would like good with the white, black and maybe the billet exterior colors.

I like the 10th anniversary Rubicon, but I would just as soon buy a regular Rubicon and switch what I could from my TJ, such as the winch, etc. and then put on a lift, bumpers, and tires. Which would still be a lot cheaper than the starting price of the Rubicon 10th anniversary.

I do like it, but so far no lottery check to justify the purchase.

I'll just think of it as the "Jersey Shore Edition".

For those who fight for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.
