    2012 rubi/Sahara ????

    Guys I'm still stuck here trying to decide what I want. There are 2 that I'm debating between right now.
    Pls keep in mind it's going to be a daily driver. Eventually I'd like to do a 3" lift with possibly 35's.
    I'll list the main options on the rubi and the Sahara I'm interested in and you can tell me which is a better deal

    2012 rubi (crush)
    6 speed manual
    Dark grey leather interior
    Heated seats
    Connectivity group
    Heated mirrors
    Dual top group( unpainted top/fenders)
    Quick order 23R
    Sirius radio
    A/c
    Power locks/windows
    (and whatever else a rubi comes with)


    2012 sahara (black)
    Auto
    dark saddle leather interior
    Connectivity group
    730N navigation
    Auto temp control
    Dual top group ( painted top/fenders)
    Sirius radio
    Trailer tow pkg
    Remote starter

    Guys I feel like I got decent quotes on both of these. Just preference now. I love the Sahara options and the dark saddle int. the rubi also has leather and I prefer manual and it's a rubi. Roughly how much would you guys pay for each with these options?

    If your gonna wheel it and only plan on 3in and 35's get a Rubi, if you think you'll eventually go bigger, save your money and by a base model for much less and put real axles under it.

    Auto Temp Control? Thats what the soft top is for

    Leather in a Jeep? Ever plan on having the top down on sunny days, get used to skin graphs.

    Keep in mind that if you upgrade your axles, the Rubi axles will fetch more than the Sahara axles. And you'll also eventually want to upgrade your t-case (sooner on the Sahara I imagine). I bought my Rubi 3+ years ago and I've been happy with the 2" BB and 32" tires... I've been happy with my Rubi since day one.

    That being said, if I were to buy a Jeep to build and wheel well into the future, I'd start with a lower priced "sport" model and spend the savings on extras... but at no point would it be a daily driver.

    unless you plan on massive upgrades get the Rubi. It will work well now and into the future. The Sahara will leave you wanting more and it will cost you in the long run to get there.

    Also consider a Rubi auto if you are looking at 2012 as they offer better gear ratios then the stick. With the auto rubi you can run 35s without feeling the need to regear.

    Im running a 2012 Sport with 3.73 and 35 Procomp Xterrains and a 6 speed manual...I feel no need to re-gear with this set up. The new engine handles the power a lot different than the 3.8L. Maybe consider getting the 3.73 ratio. Also PM'd about getting you a vehicle!

    Personally for a daily driver that doubles as a weekend wheeler I would get a Rubi Auto with the 4.10 gears so that the 35's would work well later on. After wheeling a stick for many years, there are definite advatages to an auto, and it's much nicer in traffic. But ultimately it's your money.

    Like everyone else says, go with the rubi if u plan on wheeling it. If u don't, u will wish you did. I have a 12 jkur with auto and 4:10's and they are geared alot lower. I rev close to 2500 at 100km,andhave not been able to get below 12L/100k yet, still under 2000km though so hope it gets better. I'm thinking this will work really good when i get 35's on though. If u are going to use as your primary DD and are not really serious about 35's, maybe the 4:10's are not for u. I like the mygig factory radio, i got the 730, load all my mp3's on the HD and no cd's, ever!! The connectivity works perfect with my ipad and ipod, bluetooth and plugged into the console plugs. Phone uconnect works good too. The factory gps is not as good as others that are cheaper, but it does what i want and there is no other devices in my limited cabin space, and no wires.
    Everyone will put there spin on what they like, thats why there is many different options, different strokes different folks.
    On the above 2 jeeps, if u don't mind the standard, get the rubi. Buy a gps and another stereo if u want or just buy an ipod and put all your music on it. Will still be way less then the factory 730. Heated seats let u tour topless and be comfy on the cool mornings or evenings. Then u will never be trying to crawl up that hill in front of your friends thinking " wish i would have got the rubi"!!!!!

    I'd love to see your math on this. The difference between a Rubin and Sahara is about $3000 so let's look at the upgrades to match it. 2 selectable lockers arbs ~$1000 each, gear sets ~$300 each, install $1000-1500 for the pair. 4-1 tcase atlas ~$3000+ and you still have a d30 front, figure on a few thousand more for a front axle to match... I think the rubi is good value for money. Plus if you sell Sahara axles plan on getting under a grand... sell Rubicon axles and you can expect 3k+ if you hold out for it. That gets you your money back if you upgrade and you still get to keep the sway bar and tcase.

    Guys thanks for all your input. I'm going to look at a few more this weekend and decide.
    Has anyone upgraded their stock Sirius radio to another NAV type of system??? The upgraded systems that jeep offers like the 730N/430N are pricy. Anything out there from either mygig or another brand that would offer the same options as the jeep system??
    If so which ones and how pricey are they?

    Having a 2012 Rubi, i'd vote Rubi. Go to Chrysler and build and price one with what options you want. You should come to around $39K. There is $3K incentive right now so let's take that out of play so it would be $42K. Plus tax plus admin fee would be close to $48K. To your what should you pay question the dealer invoice (cost) (it's not really their cost due to volume rebates, etc.) is around 92% of the $42K. $42K times 92% = $38.6K. You should pay around $38.6K plus $500 "profit" for the dealer plus tax plus NO admin fee (the admin fee is just another way of them collecting profit). That's $38.6K plus $500 plus 13% equals $44K. The incentive comes off this number (the incentive comes from Chrysler NOT the dealer) so you would be a bit under $41K after subtracting the incentive and the tax. There are sales people now who will show you the dealer cost invoice and ask how much over you want to pay. If one doesn't show it to you ask to see it. Find a dealer that is more interested in moving vehicles than profiting on vehicles (they make most of there money on parts and service anyway). If you are buying something off the lot you'll probably get a better deal in the last week of the month as such a dealer has more incentive to move vehicles. If you have the patience to wait 3 months order what you want with the options you want. Personally, if you are looking for a fully loaded vehicle, i'd throw the money at the electronics and not the coloured roof and fenders (scratched black fenders from rocks and trees are better), remote start or automatic temperature control. Just remember if you order a vehicle you have signed a contract and are legally obligated to pay the balance and take delivery. Also, a dealer that thinks they are going to get the service (i.e. one closer to house or work) has more incentive to sell at a lower price. So get some quotes from dealers further away before approaching that dealer.

    there used to be. Back in mod 09 at least when I bought my Sahara there was. By the time it was delivered 6months later the deference was gone.
