2010 Rubi UL vs 2012 Sport UL vs 2012 Sport 0-60 comparison

I used my Drift Box to measure the 0-60. Ok my 2010 Rubi UL. On 35" tires with alloy wheels, xrc bumbers and a winch and 513 gears. No doors and top. 11.6 seconds 0 to 60.
2012 Sport UL, 35" tires with alloy wheels, src bumber winch, 373 gears, no doors or top on it. Only 150 miles on the Jeep. 9.6 seconds 0 to 60.
2012 Sport bone stock. No doors or top. 7.6 seconds 0 to 60.
Now just my opinion. The 2012 is nice if you have your foot to the floor and the dash and arm rest are nice. Other than that I would never upgrade to just get a jeep that is faster 0-60. I don't care at all about MPGS. If so I would have gotten a mini van.

As soon as my warranty goes out on my 08, I'm throwing a 5.7 in it

Actually, if you cared about mpg, you probably wouldn't have gotten a minivan. Our VW Routan only got about 16, but we got rid of that piece of sh*t.

Auto or manual?

If manual then I probably agree with you, nothing that gearing can't overcome - at least for the most part.

If auto I definitely do not. The previous 42re four speed just has too much gap between the 1:1 3rd gear and the .67:1 top gear, leading to too many too drama filled downshifts.

I drove my wife's essentially stock auto 2008 Rubicon Unlimited with soft top and half doors to the dealer yesterday to try an auto 2012 Rubicon Unlimited hard top and doors and also with the 4.10 option - oem on the 2008, as you know. The difference was incredible. Cannot wait to trade her Jeep in.

Smoother, no drama, nuch, much better acceleration and highway performance.

I put 5:13's in, which helped for sure, but you can still get killed getting on an interstate unless kicked down full throttle.

I'm sorry guys. They are all auto. I drive my Jeep on the freeways here in Houston and I never have the feeling that I'm gonna get killed because of the under powered motor.

That's because there's no hills in Houston

That is true. But we have all of the damn drivers from south of the border. Crazy stuff to drive on the freeways around here.

I come over all of the time and I never have to turn off my o/d. Now I do have 513s in it.

It doesnít matter if you have 5.13ís and 35ís, a slight head wind or long grade will make you wish for a bigger engine every time. Now if it is a calm day then yes, the engine will do just fine.

Pretty much this. Which is why I got the super charger. The 2012 in full wind didn't feel bad at all, and that was going up hill in Flagstaff. Such a massive power increase, in warranty -- which is so nice. Expensive though (compared to what deals you can get on the 2011's).

I drove a 2012 Rubicon today to compare it with my 2011 Rubicon and I noticed a big difference. I noticed the improved acceleration throughout the powerband. The auto shift stick is pretty slick. You can start off in 1st and slap it into 2nd, 3rd or 4th when you want, you can also downshift with it. I'd supercharge my 2011, but RIPP still does't have it available because the tuners have not been able to break the encryption that Chrysler added to their compute control units in 2011. With the new motor in 2012 you've really got to wonder how much effort the tuners will put in for a one year only application for the 2011 models.
