Hello, Today I ordered my 2018 Jeep JL Rubicon Unlimited in Granite Crystal . They say 6-8 weeks for delivery but no promises.

I have been know for years as RUBINOT, as my jeeps have NOT been a Rubicon, until now. Hmmmmm may need a new name.

Im currently have a 16 JKU Sport, which is slightly built up and now for sale. I have had numerous Jeeps over my 58 years. We (my wife andI) enjoy 4 wheeling on modest trails, nothing super severe as we have to drive it home from the trails. Colorado is our most favorite spots to wheel.

Congrats on putting down your order. Now the hard part is waiting for delivery, but we'll be here for you through these tough times! :D
Maybe you can change the name to Rubican...yea I'm not the most imaginative.
With owning so many Jeeps in the past, I assume you're quite handy by now. Any modification plans?

Mopar 2" suspension lift, 35s and a winch, So far. After that will have to wait a bit to recoup some funds, hahahaha. Letting dealer do lift, as much as I enjoy doing it, I have a friend who is a mechanic at the dealership and I trust his work, plus "full" factory warranty:smile2: Had the Mopar 4" suspension lift on my last JKU and didn't have any issues with it at all. Worked beautifully on the trails on Colorado. Loved the Fox Shocks w/reservoirs, they do make a difference.

Must be great to have an inside mechanic who can work on your Jeep without voiding warranty. That's what worries me the most and I plan to put off most everything until after the warranty period is over. So small things like tints and bull bars for now.
Heard Fox performance products are amazing and they're pretty much the standard with off roaders, though I've never sat in a vehicle with them installed.

Do you find any difference in fuel efficiency after a lift kit? I suppose 2" is relatively small, but I've been told that increasing vehicle height and adding tire weight is a sure way to lower the MPG. I guess if you're one who spends lots of time off road, your fuel efficiency sits pretty low on the priority list aha.
