Well, it happened. Decided to bite the bullet and order a JTR for the boss lady. Our tundra is getting old and quite frankly, while itís done great for us over the past 12 years, itís not very practical for us anymore (too big for the islands and 2wd). Plan on selling her car as well once the JT is here to fund the lift/tires. I really hope I know what Iím getting myself into (besides a payment. Lol). Wish me luck. Aloha 🤙🏽

Thanks guys. Went with white since it hides scratches a little easier. Stingray just opened up and I really like that color but I just couldnít imagine the pain of driving through Keawe with that color. Also went with black top and black fenders. While I really like the look of color matched top and fenders, I hate touching up my white fenders on the JK after every trip. Figured the forward camera would be cool but weíll see how it goes when it gets here. Leather interior (because cleaning kids messes out of fabric sucks). Cold weather group (Mauna kea gets cold AF at night and during winter season). 8.4 uconnect/alpine, Bluetooth speaker, cargo management shenanigans. 8spd auto. LED lights because Iím not a fan of candles. Pretty excited for it. I know the boss lady is excited too. Sheís only driven ďoff roadĒ once or twice ever, both in my jku, but she was super nervous because it was manual but I know she enjoyed it. Having an auto should calm most of her fears and she can get out more behind the wheel.

Cold weather group in Hawaii...people donít realize how many homes have fireplaces upslope in the Big Island...ditto upcountry Maui...

Thanks guys. Believe it or not, it does get pretty cold depending where you go. Nothing compared to certain places on the mainland but I guess itís just a matter of perspective. Ready to get this thing going though. Waiting game sucks.

Exactly! People donít realize how cold 50-60 at night can feel if it was 90 during the day. I can remember wearing a sweatshirt in Kuwait freezing at night in the 90s.

Alright so the wife told me today that she wants the JT lifted as soon as it gets here... she thinks rubis look alright, but still a little weird without bigger tires and stuff. I know JTs and JLs are different than my JK so Iím still deciding on what route to take. I have the 3Ē enforcer on my JK and love it so I was debating on the 2.5Ē and 4.5Ē for the JT. I just donít have the coin for axles so Iíll be sticking with 37s and was debating between the enforcer 2.5Ē and 4.5Ē kits. Considering the longer wheelbase, I think the 4.5Ē would be the way to go but from what Iíve seen, it looks a little weird with 37s with the high fenders. Was also thinking of getting the 2.5Ē and getting 1Ē spacers if we have any issues... any thoughts on this?

Unless you plan on rock crawling it I would just do the 2.5Ē with 37ís.

Just got a call from the dealer. Apparently it was built really fast as should be here in about 2 weeks... super excited but kinda skeptical.

I didnít see as much of it as I was hoping/expecting when I was over there earlier this year. I would guess thereís a lot more over on Oahu.

Good thing I was skeptical from the jump or I would be a little upset by now. Lol. It just showed up at the dealer on the mainland. Itís all good though. Canít complain if weíre moving forward. Hopefully they can get it on a boat and shipped out here soon.

Ordered my JT on October 08, 2019. Expected arrival date- November 19 to December 1. Ordered most options. Cold weather package excluded because of my SoCal location. My build invoice reads it will ship 11-15. This my 5th Jeep yet Iím still anxious to get it.

Just a little update on whatís been happening.... and nothing has been happening. Lol. Everything is all paid up and still waiting to ship. Frustrating for sure but trying to be patient. Not having a truck at all here is kinda shitty, especially since we donít have trash service here. Having to ask friends to borrow their trucks has never been my style, but thankfully theyíre understanding.

Congrats!! I have a Sting Grey JTR on order. Ordered it approx. 2 weeks ago. I've heard people mention a VON. How do you track the build? My salesman said he would forward info to me but he said it comes from Jeep but is hit or miss. Sometimes they send it...sometimes they don't.

Ours was built so quickly, that the dealer wasn't even contacted throughout the process. I had way better luck with Live Chat. Click the link below, then click the Live Chat link. Very helpful people, IMO.
