Yep, from the factory you just get the driver's side Trail Rated badge. But if you like symmetry (and have the mod bug), you can get another one from JustForJeeps.com for the other side.

Re: My Baby is HOME!!!

Think of it like a pirate's eye patch - now two of those would be dumb!

Congratulations Candy Girl. . . following your travails (and admiring your patience) has been one of the more enjoyable threads on this forum. Beautiful ride there!

Re: My Baby is HOME!!!

You are right, Chi-One. My salesman told me of this happening only one other time and that was when the Wrangler came out with the 4 door limited version. But it is definitley worth the wait.

A couple of things. There were some postings about the AC not working properly. It was 97 here today and mine worked just fine.

But I did have one thing happen. My alarm went off. She was sitting in my driveway and the fob was on my dresser. I thought maybe this happened because I had my handicapped scooter lift put on today and the folks who did it for me wired the license plate light so that it uses the socket on the hitch as opposed to wiring it to the license plate light on the vehicle. The reason they did this was because the computer may throw some warnings. It seems the computer is very sensitive and this could have been a problem. Or, it may be because she is a bit of a diva and she had her feathers ruffled. lol

Another reason it could have happened is because someone was looking at her. I must say, this vehicle has stopped people in their tracks! Pedestrians and motorists alike. I took it to the automotive shop that I will take her to for routine maintenance and the guys there ooed and ahhed over her. They were really impressed!

I now have about 220 miles on her. I hope to have the break in period over tomorrow-over 300 miles. I can't wait. I want to get back traveling mostly highways. I have been taking the town roads to vary the speeds, but I like to set my cruise and go!

Re: My Baby is HOME!!!

Candy Girl... set the ACC and get going. I have had mine for 2 months now and have already put 6000 miles on it driving all over AZ, NM and TX.

I never want to get out of it. I find myself taking the long way everywhere I go and sometimes even just sit in the driveway with the music and AC on with the seat reclined.

Glad it finally came in and you love it so much.... get out there and ENJOY!

Re: My Baby is HOME!!!

One sure way to draw a crowd is to keep her clean.

After several long trips with my wonderful new Summit - it was covered in bugs, grime, etc. No way did I have the time to clean it properly myself, so it was off to a detailer to get clayed, sealed, waxed, etc.

When the Jeep was done, it was even prettier than day one. And now it seems to draw spectators when I park it! At one restaurant, my wife and I noticed a couple going round and round and peering into it until I finally went outside, smiled, and opened it up for them to look at the inside too. (Pride of ownership - oh yeah!)

A lot of people comment on the color - the Rugged Browns are pretty rare. I bet joebinotto gets the same experience.

Re: My Baby is HOME!!!

Thank you all!

I finally have her broken in! I set my cruise at 65 and found she gave me 23.7 mpg-I am thrilled!!! I hope this gets even better! Will let you know.

I just love this vehicle-but I think I have said that before! lol. I, too, find myself taking the long way to get someplace, just sitting inside and playing with the gadgets... just awesome!

No more false alarms. I would bet someone went up to her to take closer look and got too hands on.

Will continue to keep you all posted!
