It will be worth the wait in the long run, can't imagine you have too many Granite Rubicons running around there!

Agreed, I think it may have to do with the Right Hand Drive option that delays the scheduling to D1 status.

Most wranglers are the Sport model with some Sahara model (Overland) equivalent. Rubicons are special order.

Yeah, I was pretty jazzed to finally see some movement this morning. I guess it must have been just sitting for the last 8 days waiting its turn. The actual work seems to have taken less than a day! I noticed they slipped the estimated arrival again, but that was pretty much a given since the back end of the last one was this coming Tuesday. Still waiting for that magic "KZ," but any movement is good. Looks like yours is rolling down the rails -- shouldn't be long now. As I recall, you have some immediate mods planned -- make sure to post some before and after pics.

Maybe we will get our jeeps around the same time!

No major mods planned, I'm going to do the Daystar hood latch upgrade, hood lock and spare tire lock fairly soon.

I guess that was Steph that had the major mods planned. I'm with you in that regard. I'm keeping my '07 JK, and most of the 'mod money' will probably still go into it for awhile. Impact isn't as severe with it if I make a mistake.
