For those of you who've been following us on our Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/projectjk) or Google+ (https://plus.google.com/110946686711747198445#110946686711747198445/posts) fan pages, you'll know that we've just purchased a brand new 2012 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon in Dozer Yellow. While we are eager to get this new addition to the family built up, I thought it would be fun to post up some day 1 pics of it bone stock first. This way, we'll have a record of what it looked like before it becomes what it will be :cool:

Wow. I just ordered a new 2012 yesterday and after looking at those pics, OMG I CAN'T WAIT!! :shock:

I love that they moved the swaybar disconnect and locker buttons.

I can't wait to see what you have in store for this thing.

Cool they retained the ATX logo or is it a decal. Like the look!

Got a new windshield decal for RubiCAT - hoping its a close enough match to Dozer Yellow. Will let you know shortly...

Well, it's not an exact match but, we already knew that it wasn't going to be. It is real close though and we're pretty happy with it. I think we'll start making these available for purchase :)

I've heard that the stock rocker guards on the 2012 Rubicon's are body mounted? Is this true? And if so, wouldn't you benefit more from having them be frame mounted?

they are mounted to the pinch seam and base of the body and, you'd be surprised at how strong they are.

Just finished installing a trail rack and Jerry can mounts on our LoD rear bumper tire carrier. RubiCAT may still be small but, at least it can now go the distance :)

actually, with just a stock tire for a spare, you can see out the back pretty good. if you want more visibility, you can raise the adjustable rack higher and you can see even more. :yup:

these are gen 3 jerry can mounts and they come with a metal u-straps that secure the cans in place.
