Hey Maverick, you were in the Army? Thank you for serving. My brother now flies a Kiowa in Afghanistan.

3500 on mine and loving it. BTW, the oil light on mine just kicked in, don't the new pentastars run about 8000 before a change?

I'm not used to a car as slow as the wrangler. I came from a 600hp evo so it is taking a little getting used to. In that thing passing was a joke. I would be at 100 without even noticing

I came from a e46 m3 but for a jeep it's pretty quick. We will see once I join the 37 club (hopefully I can be part of 2 clubs )

Yeah I got out after Desert Storm... I was an MP in the AZ NG... we were activated and stationed in Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War. So does your brother fly lead scout for a Cobra gunship in a hunter/killer team? I was on an exercise back in the late 80s where a hunter/killer team was involved to make things realistic. Pretty kewl to see them operate...

My previous vehicle was a Nissan Titan which was pretty good on the take-off and passing. The 2012 Wrangler isn't quite as fast but its very satisfying to me... especially knowing I can take it off road where it will really shine.

2012 Silver JKU Rubi. Ordered it in Dec and picked it up mid Feb. Only had 3 km on it and it was all shiny and new. I'll hit 10 000 km early next week. I'd guess at least a quarter of those km's where off road. It currently has a healthy amount of pin stripping, at least 3 dents, beat up rims and lots of rock humping scars on the belly not to mention the butt load of dust and mud built up all throughout. I've already replaced the front bumper and added a winch. Hope to be installing 3" lift and 35's in the very near future.
So far, it's problem free (knocking aggressively on wood) and has been a ton of fun to drive. My last ride was a '98 2 door stock XJ sport. I love that Jeep very much but damn this Rubi is just so much freekin' fun!!!

It would be pretty sweet if there was a section dedicated to the 2012's on this forum considering how many differences there are compared to older models. It would also be pretty sweet to have a section dedicated to Rubi's.

Here she be parked on top of a mountain just east of Manning Park BC.
