Its definately offroad related.

But at work here we are sponsoring a Iditarod Musher, and having a little contest for him as he departs tomorrow on his 1146 mile dogsled race across Alaskka.

Sound off in support, or participate, its just kinda cool so I thought I would share.

Thats why the rubicon edition was such a brilliant move for chrysler, and then they get the gotta have the best but dont understand what I bought crowd. lol. They will rain upon us a flood of beautiful ready to be mod'd jeeps.
100% agreed

Looks great! Rachel said you might be going to down south this weekend? Wish I wasn't stuck at work so much lately.

found a khaki LJ with 17k miles at a dealer. They want $20k. $17k looks more reasonable. One of my favorite colors. What are good options for a hardtop for the LJ?

Also Factory Hardtops pop up on Craigslist here constantly... LJ's less so but they are around.

Not new content by any means (from a 2010 writeup of a build of a 2008 Rubicon by the watermarked mag, I believe) but I stumbled across the pics tonight. 37"s with only 2.5" lift and flat fenders, and a ProRock 44 in front. Looks awesome, imo.

LOL... Try the OX covers they are about 1/2"-1" (in spots) of solid machined billet steel.

Just a good idea for everyone who reads in here. If you are running offroad you need to use Outerwears prefilters, they will stop 90% of water ingestion, unless your silly enough to submerge your intake without a snorkel.

Its amazing how a $10 part saves a $1000 motor.

Good lord thats a good looking top. What do you give the chances it will actually make it to market? I browsed the thread, but it was pretty large to filter out all the updates.

Not that it means anything, but hey summer coming so you have like 10 months until its a concern

If I bought another wrangler, I'd probably leave the hard top on permanently. I hated my soft top, and the hard was a bitch to remove. I hate convertibles anyway.

I lurk this thread because I have constant day dreams of buying some sort of terribly impractical second car or another. That and I need to learn about truck tires before mine need replacing.

You've seen that the '11+ Sahara and '12+ Rubicon are available with color-matched hard tops (and fender flares, if you plan on keeping them stock), no? Makes them look much more "permanent."
