12' JK Call of Duty MW3 796/3500

After running mm 99' XJ for over 10 years, which I have no complaints at all about and I will whole heartedly miss, I bought a used JK with 21k onto it.

I saw it on the dealers website a week before and wasn't quite sure a two door would suffice for my family of four. Well we went to the dealer on Saturday to get my wife's yearly inspection done, 15' Patriot high altitude edition, I took this thing for a test drive. I was extremely torn by the impracticality of the JK vs JKU but the test drive got me hooked, line, sinker. The hood on my new JK is icing on the cake and gets my heart pounding every time I sit in the driver seat. Being built on the Rubicon platform I will never use the full potential this beast can do, but I can sure as hell try, in time anyway.

I forgot to mention this thing is quick!! I know it's not a sports car but wow, I thought my worked up 4.0 got up and went well this 3.6 puts you right back into the seat. What gear ratio did thes things typically come with in an auto?

My old ride as I traded it in. I wasn't sending my Cibie headlights to the Sharks.

A pic of the seat embroidering.

I'm so ecstatic, words can't even describe..... I'll post a pic tomorrow the view from the driver seat. Being that there is a ton of Jk/JKU's cruising the Capital District/upstate NY, the hood makes it distinguished, and notable.

I love driving this thing, checkout the view. I sourced the build sheet, it has 3.73's in the axles.

Looks great, man. One of the few limited editions that were actually cool and interesting.

Re: 12' JK Call of Duty MW3 796/3500

So my heat has been not so good. At first I was thinking being 10* the lack of a headliner is significant, then I start feeling around the vents and realize cold air is coming out . So I take a closer look at the carfax, provided in the packet with the sale, and notice @ 9700 mi they replaced the radiator, heater core, and associated components. So I bring it in, 2 weeks after taking ownership, and service calls me 5 hrs later saying it wasn't throwing any codes, and it's to spec. I pick up the jeep take it home put a thermometer in each vent. It was giving me readings of 115* on PS and couldn't even reach 80* on DS. And even cooler on defrost or feet. So the next day I write an email and was called to set up an appointment for the following Monday.

So the same guy calls me today, who told me all Wranglers are like that, and notifies me that my heater core is being replaced. So it better be pumping some Hot air when I get it back tomorrow!!

Thanks for listening to the rant.

Its good that they are replacing the core for you. Unfortunately, this happens with some used vehicles, especially if you're dealing with smooth talking, friendly, unscrupulous salesmen. I thought of buying a used jku, but decided the "new" factor(ie: not someone elses problem) and it being warrantied is more important than saving a few bucks up front.

Im sorry to hear youre having trouble, but im sure the dealership will do what they can, and what they should, to make it right.
