Cool Newbie/Oldbie also seeking RUBICON advice...quickly

Just signed here, used to be a member years back, considering a new Jeep after test driving a RUBICON today, I've owned a couple over the years, plan on closing the deal tomorrow. Maybe if anyone has some last minute opinions on whether or not it's worth the Dana 44's, air lockers, upgraded tranny/transfer case, etc, etc. The one I like is Impact Orange (sunset orange looking color). Appreciate any feedback. sFew pics of my past Jeeps and my present racecar (my Mule PEPE puts down 500rwhp naturally aspirated to the ground) just got her back a month ago, keeping her but still want a Jeep ...with BOGGERS of course .

yes, the extra options are worth the money if you are going to wheel it more than at the mall.

If you are filthy rich then get a regular jeep and throw some pro rock 60's under it and get an atlas 4sp tcase.

Thanks for the feedback, good to meetcha too! Not filthy rich, basically down to my racecar for a daily driver which is not the best thing in the world, blew up my beater car and miss having a Jeep. Longterm plans if I get it tomorrow is an 8" Fabtech longarm setup w/Boggers again, but for now just want to have one.

man sounds like some mean trail rigs you guys have. Well I got the Rubicon, Khaki, the orange was ugly, looked like a mad pumpkin, non-metallic crayon looking plain color and it came with more options anyway, look forward to hitting a trail soon.

Automatic transmissions are gay.
