    And I make decisions for me. I have never cared about other people's views... There is actually quite a good jeep community out there.

    Nice rig fella's,
    I had researched the newer 3.6 engines, my mechanic said they seem to be a good unit, seems like a good match with the auto too. Would be looking for a 2013/2014, is there anything I should look out for in particular on a JKU?

    2013 / 2014 3.6 with an auto are a great combo. Can either go for a sport model or rubicon which has factory lockers, electronic sway disconnect and better diff gearing and transfer case for off road depending in what you want it for.

    Biggest thing to look out for is a low bank balance lol. There's no shortage of mods available for the jeeps. Can recommend some places for mods depending on where you are.

    I think that applies to a lot of fourbies, not just Jeeps

    Why would I buy something for $10 when I can make it for $20

    When you catch "Modifyitis" it can be expensive to stop the irritation. As a long time sufferrer, trust me I know. LOL

    i think I might be coming done with another bout of this desease, was 7 months ago when I last had it, ARB medication work for the itch last time. It has been suggested that some Kaymar lotion might help cure the itch this time.

    So the itch is in your rear end this time, that could be bad, best deal with sooner rather than later

    I think most of us on here seem to be in the same boat!

    Harps, definitely keen to see this Jeep. I actually nearly bought myself a Rubicon a few years back. The main reason I didn't? My husband is firmly in the "Jeep Hater" camp and I need him on my side while I learn more about doing the necessary mods myself!

    (He has this view that Jeeps spontaneously combust. The fact that our friends' Jeep very nearly did in the middle of the Simpson Desert doesn't really help sway his view of them!)
