2013 or 2014 Jeep Rubi

Are there any differences between the 2013 and 2014 Jeep Rubicon? If so what are they. Thanks!

From what I've seen there aren't many differences. Briefly I read about unlocking something to show oil pressure, transmission teperature, etc. But I'm not fully educated on that, and it may be possible on both year models. The biggest difference so far is that 2013 has much better color options.

When looking through Rubicons I found an amazing 2013 Rubicon in Commando Green in Chantilly Virginia. Beautiful Jeep, and fullly loaded.

Pretty sweet, but super pricey; http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...gIndex=3&Log=0

Just saw in the RIPP thread that their Supercharger for 2012-2013 won't currently work on the 2014 because there was a complete ECU change.

For the love of all that's holey, does Jeep have to change up things every 2 years...

Oh I want to get this kit so bad. I checked you guys out at the all breeds jeep show. I just wish I could make this work with my rugged ridge snorkel on my 2012.

That thing is ridiculous!

Did I hear 325 HP? In a 3.6l with just the supercharger?

That's 325 at the rear wheels on an automatic. We're talking 400 at the crank

3.6 internals are forged from the factory correct?


What kind of numbers would we expect to see from a manual trans

Has the power/torque curve comparison been published for the 3.6 SC?

Just wondering what the delta FT-LB and HP is under 3000 RPM where most of us mortals live.
