This is going to be a fun build. A build anyone can afford.
good idea.
That's the idea. Would love to reach people who are new to Jeeps or would like to get one but are working on a tight budget.
Congrats on the new addition. 2 Doors, 3 pedals, what more could you ask for to create great memories. I was thinking 392 or 4Xe. During the intro I was leaning more to 4Xe. It's crazy that 9 years ago my pretty basic JKUR didn't cost much more than the base model JL sport.
The 4Xe is nice but totally not worth it to me. Maybe if it had better range I'd be interested.

As mentioned, that's the plan. To keep this one stockish and share with people how you really don't need to spend tons of money building up a Jeep just to have fun with it.
I thought you said that but I thought I heard wrong. Anyways, Fezzik huh? I miss that thread. Great name!

Yeah that was my thoughts too. I had the same reasoning when I was looking for my commuter. I could not justify the price of a hybrid over a base model Sentra. Can't wait to see your plans. Good to hear you like the new gear box.

Oh yeah, there's no way you can justify a Wrangler as a commuter, even a 4Xe. At least, I couldn't.

This is GREAT! Man, I'd do the same thing, if I could. Looking forward to seeing where it takes you. I think some would be shocked at what a bare bones stock Jeep can do. It'll actually be pretty quick, too, with that powertrain and light weight! My JLUR is a manual, and I absolutely love it! (My JKUR is a manual, too!)

So happy to hear you're liking it! And yes, a stock JL can do amazing things.

LOL - Now that you mention it, you may have been the only 2-door in the group the last time around. Guess we'll have to fix that. :cool:
