I know what it's like to be undecided. I wavered back and forth for months on whether I should get a Ram or a JGC (I wanted the ecodiesel either way). I finally decided on the GC and I'm very happy so far.

I may have met somebody as crazy as I am when deciding on cars and mods. I've built a few JK's and always changed tires and suspensions. I sold a '15 Rubicon on 37's for a JGC HA only to try to trade it back in for another Rubicon 2 months later. Once I realized that the GC had dropped like a rock in value I decided to ride out my lease and enjoy the GC. I'm also enjoying not modding vehicles and the cost involved.

Re: school me on Jeep 4x4 options

Yeah it's very hard for me to leave anything stock and I'm always thinking about the next project but I also get very attached to my rides......this makes it hard to move on. I've never owed a 4x4 before so I'm pretty excited about this build. As you can imagine, I have a laundry list of modifications that I'm planning already.

Thats how I have been as well. If you really like mods go for a Rubicon because everything is easy and there are many choices not just one or two like with the JGC. The Wrangler is the easiest vehicle probably on the planet to modify.

Re: school me on Jeep 4x4 options

FYI, I just received notification from Icon vehicle dynamics and they will NOT be making a suspension kit for the 2016 GC. Sucks but it's also not much of a surprise.

I'm still waiting to hear back from ARB about the Old man Emu suspensions kit.
