If you just came to look at the pictures feel free to skip my dissertation
We recently had the opportunity to test drive a new 2012 JKUR. We ordered one the very next week! Brandyís 08 JKUR had only 50k miles on it but after driving the 2012ís I had to have one. I was blown away by the increased HP and 5spd transmission. It didnít take much to convince her either. After our record-breaking heat this summer she was already thinking about a lighter color. Brandyís only stipulation was that she wanted all of the same accessories that her 08 had with the exception of one. If it was going to be white she wanted an exo cage similar to the defender 110ís.
The order was placed on 9/27/11 and we took possession on 10/26/11. Over the past few weeks I have begun the slow process of building my idea of the perfect overland vehicle to fit our needs. A lot of thought has gone into this build and having had the 08 for 4 years it has given me a lot of time to evaluate this platform and determine what is best for us and the type of camping / off-roading we do.
God made each and everyone of us different. We look different, have different interest / hobbies, drive different trucks, and have different outdoor destinations. Some of you more seasoned travelers living in undeveloped countries might not understand the method behind my madness. For some who drive your truck to work daily and leave the pavement every chance you get this may make more sense. Either way this is simply my interpretation of what platform works best for us. I hope you guys enjoy reading along and even laughing at my mistakes, they are abundant. Just ask Brandy she keeps track.
