    Got a chance to test drive one today. I was a sport with an automatic but it was still nice. On road manners seemed good, it handled bumps in the road well and the V6 was peppy. When letting off the accelerator it had an odd drag, kinda like handbrake was on, or a manual in a lower gear, not bad, just different. Only took a moment to get used to it.

    Road noise was much better than my LJ and it did not have the insulated roof option.

    I’d really like to drive the manual Rubicon or at least a JL manual to know how one drives.

    Wonder what one a year old will cost next year?

    I drove one the other day and not impressed (guess I am spoiled by the power of my Hemi truck). Felt a little too cramped and surprised by the lack of power seats among other things. Guess I won't be buying one yet.
    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?
