While I was working today I saw a JK Unlimited Rubicon driving on the road. I saw it driving north on M-24 in Oxford. (For those outside of the metro-Detroit area, Oxford is about a 10-15 minute drive north of the DaimlerChrysler HQ.) It had MFG plates on it. I couldn't get right up next to it, but managed to take a few shots with my camera.
I noticed the muffler running parallel to the rear bumper and thought: WTF. That muffler is going to get banged up pretty easily. Then I realized that my gas tank is in the exact same place. Anyone think the aftermarket will be making a muffler skid plate? Wouldn't that make sense? Or am I nuts?
So far the only complaint I have about the JK is the size of the bumpers. They're huge. Also, the rear window on the hard top looks a little awkward, kinda like the rear window on a CJ-7. Otherwise I really like them, but I won't be giving up my TJ anytime soon (if ever.)
Enough of my rambling, here's the pics:
