Just saw some '13s at the dealership

The new seats look NICE. Didn't get to sit in one, but they sure look like they'd feel good.

Words can't describe the in-person ugliness of the new Rubicon wheels. Hideous. And they have a little tiny black Willys Jeep profile in black in one of the spoke windows, sounds cool but comes off very tacky.

The new Sahara wheels look good in the flesh though.

Also saw a new personal record for most expensive factory 2-door. It was a '12 MW3 listed at.... 42.2k. Yeah, right.

All else looks the same, looks like we'll have 'real' Wranglers for at least a few more years.

That is all.

I went down and drove a '13 yesterday and have to say the seats are pretty comfortable. However, they have this strange panel that covers the side and really makes them look like they belong in a minivan. LOL

After driving that tiny little thing I got back in the Goat and felt bad for thinking about getting rid of it again.

You think that pic is ugly....somehow they manage to look quite a bit worse in person. I don't know what they were thinking....

I'm glad they came out with those wheels. I might finally be able to sell my take-offs and get some more room in the garage.

Those things are ugly though. Not even a good coat of bedliner would help

Well the Rubi and Sahara 17" moabs were desirable enough to be sold off when upgrading. This wheel probably not so much.

........My other hobbies include: Older cars and trucks; Spending money on unfinished projects, and continuing to not finish them...
