IMHO, it would be rather tough to even reach 60K miles in 5 years, crawling along on a trail in 4WD-low.

Agreed. I'm sure I'll reach 5 years before 60K miles. But a few good road trips could make it close.

Re: New Rubicon Owner

Must be something in the air, trading my 14 Summit for a 16 JKU Hard Rock in White. Black is usually the color I would go with, but this round I decided on white. Thought about waiting for the Rhino color, but wanted to get into it before Winter and snow. Just never know in Indiana how much snow we will get each winter. We could get almost nothing, up to 20" or something in-between.

What type of decal is it? If it's a hard plastic use fishing line behind it in a sawing motion to cut the adhesive tape. If it's a vinyl decal use a hair dryer or heatgun to heat it and peel it off. After either there maybe a little goo left you can rub off with your hands, WD40 and or car wax. You shouldn't scratch the paint doing those.

Agreed, I do decals for a living. Heatgun works best (just keep it moving so you don't burn the paint) then scrape it off and wipe off, we use alcohol, but wd will work.
