My folks are looking to replace their '07 JKU with a '12 JKU... not bad for a couple of 72+ y.o. "fuddie duddies."
My father's choice is Desert Tan. But, the rest of the family - including me - is concerned that the painted wheel arches + painted hardtop is just too much color. I thought the elegant solution would be to buy a Rubicon. But, the latest Jeep brochure says that the Rubicon with a painted hardtop now comes with the painted-to-match wheel arches.
Can someone please post a picture of a Desert Tan 4-door JKU in Desert Tan with a painted hardtop, but with black wheel arches? It'll help them make their decision.
Oh, just for the sake of it: they won't buy any other SUV because they won't drive anything but a manual transmission... too bad. Because the Grand Cherokee probably would be a lot better for their backs!
No pics, just a comment... Jeep discontinued the Sahara Tan color in September or early October (forget which), you won't be able to order a 2012 in that color any more. Really bummed me out, I had my heart set on a Sahara Tan 2 door Rubicon last month when I was shopping for one. I looked in a 400 mile radius and could only find 3 with automatic transmissions but all had too many options for me.
EMT/Firefighter... 2012 Rubicon, AEV 2.5" lift, JCR stubby winch bumper with HID lights, JCR engine skid, ACE side steps.
