And people WILL pay it >_> just had this convo earlier and the summit edition wk2 came up. Can you seriously justify charging 66k for a jeep? Yet people will pay it. Dealership I used to work at sold a bone stock srt8 for midfrickin eighties! Idk, personally not worth it to me.... Then again, no jk is worth it to me zj fo life baby! The 10a rubi will be good for some. They should get it. For the rest, that's why they make other jeeps

What makes it more trail worthy than a regular rubicon? $6000 bumpers? And red leather?

I actually said they are overpriced, but that can be said of every Wrangler above a Sport. Didn't say it was more trail worthy than a regular Rubicon. It IS a regular Rubicon with different springs, tires, and bumpers. If you price it out option for option vs another Rubicon, its only about $2000 more. Not bad for a different bumper setup, extra .5" lift, and that awesome color Anvil. Not to mention the red leather seats that make it go faster! I wish more people hated the red leather and the Anvil color, because I like going against popular opinions. And the wheels actually look better in person than I expected. I have not put my Eagle Alloys and Mickeys on it yet.

Built not bought?

I don't mean to be a "hater" it's just to me the whole love affair between a man and his jeep is building your own. Making it personal. With that said, enjoy your new jeep. Can't wait to see pics of it covered in mud!

I'd have no problem rocking that thing at all. Love the black roof and flares with the wheels.
