Picked up my Gator Rubi Friday and couldn't be happier. There is definitely something with digital cameras that cause them to wash the green out in the sunlight. Unlike some of the shots I've seen here that make it look brown in direct sunlight it certainly maintains its green hue.

Also, anyone on the fence about the Alpine system, GET IT! I sunk a good deal of time, money and effort into my JKUR trying to get it to sound decent and the factory Alpine system blows what I had away. It can actually be turned too loud with the top off doing 60.

Enough blabbing, here's some photos I shot at the dealer on a cloudy day and a couple I shot with my brothers car today.

Man it looks good. Congratulations. Hopefully I won’t be too awful far behind you. I also got the Alpine and am looking forward to it also. Thanks for posting the pics.

Hope you get it soon. I was tearing my hair out fretting over the color. No buyer's remorse here, it's nice.

After only a week I’ve rounded the first 1000 miles in my JTR 6spd with factory Falken M/Ts and am entirely impressed with the ride, more importantly the fuel economy. If you’re on the fence about a Jeep truck, I easily managed 19+ MPG between 70 & 75 MPH, but will say the best average economy I saw was 22 MPG with cruise set 67 MPH. This truck rocks !!

Color me impressed. My avg has continued to drop and dropped below 15 Friday. Not quite to 300 miles yet though and other than the trip home from the dealer it's been all stop n go traffic. Granted mine is also an automatic as I needed the tow capacity.

I too am VERY impressed with the ride quality. Shocked actually. Makes my 2017 JKUR seem like it was junk and it's on par or maybe even a little better than the Silverado I drive for work.
