New jeep

When I got back from Iraq I decided I buy a new car, I was looking at another Colorado but the I-5 and V8 can only be paired with the automatic transmission. I ended up buying my first non Chevy, a 2012 jeep wrangler rubicon. It has the 3.6l pentastar v6, 6sp manual, front and rear lockers, 4.10 gears and 32" BFG MTs. The jeep fun to drive and a beast offroad but it wish it was a pickup mabey jeep will build the gladiator or Chevy will bring back manual transmissions on the next gen colorado

V-8's are better than Vtec

Nice upside down jeep u got there. I do like the orange color, but how comfortable is it on the interstate? Every wrangle Ive ever ridden in was very uncomfortable, loud and bouncy going 65+ mph, but I imagine the new ones are more comfy.

Drives just like any other SUV or truck I've driven. The 2011 and up wranglers have a new carlike interior and the 2012 and up have a 285 hp 3.6l v6

Don't mean to jink your new ride but i hope you did your research before purchase? You should read about various issues?

I have a 97 tj and love it. It is not near as comfy as yours and with only the 2.5L it has no power on road but super fun off road.

Yea I did my research mine already had the heads replaced not to long ago actually the 2013 heads are different and my oil fill is now on the passenger side instead of drivers side. I'm really surprised at how capable the jeep is straight out of the factory. Love the fact that you can put 35" tires on it with a 2.5" lift
