It's just the cheese Harbor Freight one. Meh are my thoughts. Including the LED lights I wired to it, probably just over $100 in it and it's not worth much more. The leaning action to help get bikes on ends up being more of a PITA than a help- especially when unloading. However, when strapped on, they are very stable. Based on the cost of other ones, would I get it again? Yeah, probably. Or I might weld one up myself.

My color dilema went as such:
1- The forest green- too common and kind of a played out color to me
2- Sahara Tan- Tsunami in Japan killed that
3- The Cherry Red color- gorgeous color, but as my dad so articulately put, "not a very Jeepy color"
4- White or silver- I've had multiple white cars and bikes, the G is white, the GSA is white and we have a silver car already
5- The Dozer Yellow we settled on. It seemed a bit obnoxious at first, but to tell you the truth, I love it. It is very uncommon that I've seen, and I think fits the machine really well. It also photographs pretty darn good, so no regrets in getting my first car with what might seem a bit ostentatious at first glance.

We spent probably 2 hours with the sales guy when we placed the order debating on colors.

We went and test drove one today. We liked it significantly more than our current two door jk. Enough we started working numbers on the trade and had him find us a gecko one. Ended up giving us two to choose from(I knew where both were from searching online before I went there, and know of at least three more within 250 miles). Of course, the numbers are very favorable for the dealer, enough so I decided not to waste our time trying to negotiate today. I'll wait a few days and email him with my numbers and see what happens.
I had already talked to the dealer who has one of the two he said he could get last week, and he quoted me a great price to go there and buy it, but of course could not give me a guaranteed trade value on my current jeep till I bring it there for him to see it. I understand that completely, but also can't see taking the chance of driving 6 hours to have them low ball me on the trade and make it a wasted trip. I may just go buy that one and then put mine up for sale, but will see if the local guy can do anything for me first.

I just took delivery of a JKUS in Dark Cherry with Saddle Leather seats and tan lower dash. The color combo looks great. The color is a little "lipstick-y" but ladies do seem to like it.

Very happy with the purchase so far.
