Brutus is gone, welcome Rhino.

Well, after 10 years, 312,000klm, and countless enjoyable hours of wheeling and wrenching, Brutus has gone to a new home. The new project Rhino 🦏 begins.

I just did this myself. Went from an 07 Sahara (manual trans) to a new 18 JK auto. Love the new engine and the auto so far.

Sweet new Unlimited!
Was the previous JKU ( the one you traded) that had almost 200,000 miles on it an automatic?



That new one is schweet; enjoy!

Thank you
Yes sir, Brutus was an Auto. I put an aux tranny cooler on it in 2008 and he lived on 35s and 37s ever since. Never a problem with motor or trans.

It will be a lengthy process but to be honest I am in no rush. I enjoy the process one piece at a time.
JL hood latches done.
