I notice that the instrument cluster in that one has the blue-green color digital displays. The ones in my hard rock are white. Does the hard rock use a different instrument cluster than regular Rubicons? My tach also has "Rubicon" on it

What is on the hood and front fenders of that rhino? Is it just the lighting or is that some design I'm not familiar with?

Beads of water. They probably ran it through the wash before the pics.

Yes. The regular Rubicons don't have those features.

FWIW, The cherokee pics look like a bluer shade than these. (on second look, on the dealer's website, these do look like the cherokee, I think it is a wild rhino sighting). Love it.

Yeah I was looking good for December but life and I have this thing where it periodically kicks me in the junk just for funzies. Going to delay me a bit but hopefully not much longer.

I can't wait until yours comes in. Hopefully it doesn't go on the slow boat to the Bayou.

Sorry to hear that, maybe in January you will get yours in. I agree, hopefully they don't send it on the slow pirogue down here (you might have to look that up, LOL).

Packages tend to lower costs.

Would you buy a Hard Rock equivalent, if the ordering all the features separately, would result in sticker of $60 or $65?

Agree. See my earlier post about hard rock packaging (you get $5,950 worth of stuff for $4,800). I was suggesting that there may be even more simplification in packaging possible by eliminating the model designations, but I guess you could look at the models as "packages" themselves.
