Just looking at these pictures made me smile. Fantastic.
I love the tailgate lettering. I'd do that on my Red LE in a second!

How do you like the ride with the Metal Cloak lift and new wheels and tires? Is it the 3.5? I have the Metal Cloak lift sitting in my garage and can't wait to get it installed, just waiting on wheels.

Any opinions on the advanced safety group option those who have it and those who did not order it? Thanks

i have the blind spot monitoring and the adaptive cruise control, etc. In heavy traffic it leaves too much gap between the car in front of you, so people just keep cutting in. So I rarely use it. The blind spot monitoring is nice but not a must have in my opinion.

I love the proximity keyless entry though.

Thanks for the reply, I am going from a two door wrangler to the Rubicon gladiator I was just wondering about the comfort level of maneuvering a much larger vehicle and the Blindspot monitoring etc. your experience is really helpful because the descriptions make it sound like they are the are the end-all.

I've used adaptive cruise control on longer trips when not in traffic or when dealing with very light traffic. It prioritizes the gap to the vehicle in front. So when someone takes that gap it immediately applies brakes to build the gap back and for overall traffic flow that's terrible. No one wants to ride behind a person that reactively hits the brakes. Slow is smooth. And adaptive cruise control is not smooth. In light traffic it's fine.

Blind spot monitoring on the Jeep is functional. It works as advertised. If you set up your mirrors correctly though, you won't have blind spots and I've been doing this for the past 18 years. So light or no light, I use and trust my mirrors. Stay aware of what's going on around me and watch for motorcycles and small vehicles.

Safety features are great. It's just important that we not fully rely on them. The amount of people that can't park without a rear camera is way too high. I don't want for lame changing as well.
