Can't find a 4 Door JK with a hard top in manual

They seemingly don't exist in the Austin TX area. Even the Rubicons on lot are Automatic.

The next 60+ days that won't change either with Chrysler halting production.

No Rubi's w/ a stick here in OH, but plenty of X's and Sahara's with a 6 spd. The dealer should do a locate for you to find what you want.

No "X"s or Saharahs in a 4 door config in the colors I want either according to the one dealer I've been emailing back and forth to.. they've checked their two locations but I guess he hasn't just checked who in the area has one, period.

The lifetime powertrain is transferable just like the rest of the warranty. You're a little far away to buy my wifes plus shed probably kill me anyway. Good luck finding one

You can also search available inventory online at www.jeep.com, click on jeep wranglar 4 dr, then search available inventory for your particular zipcode. That is how I got my dual top w/manual. I ran the hartop all winter, now running the soft top. Good luck in your search (mine took about 2months as I had too many color choices w/manual)

i think i bought the last manual white unlimited rubi with a hardtop last week
there was a silver one in the bay area but it was sold the day before i bought mine. i didnt lock it down in time...

also during my search i found 3 rubi unlimited with manuals in black, white and red but they all came with the soft tops.

im in SoCal

edit: i was told by the dealer that the lifetime powertrain warrenty is not transferable. only the 3yr/36K mile warrenty or any extended warrenty is transferable.

its lifetime if you dont do anything at all to the driveline. bigger tires/ rims ect could possibly void warranty so keep that in mind

Yeah, if this weren't the case I'd consider a used JK. As others have stated though once you start the modifications the warranty is no good once they start denying you warranty service. So maybe it's 'no big thing'.

Just took a Red Rubi 6 speed for a test drive. After driving it, I bought the auto. Dealer in IL has 2 Rubi with 6 speeds on the lot.
Good luck with your search!

Welp, EPP+ seems to be ending today. I don't think a Wrangler is in my future for some time now.
