It makes me strangely happy to think about how in ten years or so, COFL will be a grizzled overland badass leading bigger and crazier trips, rescuing new drivers left and right, and exploring even further afield.
@just-jeepin Just order it blind, it will be fine. It's not like you're gonna buy anything else.
You'll need to reprogram yourself to the better ride quality and interior. The driving experience isn't the same, although the crappy steering and wind noise should be familiar. You get used to the shifter and pedals and stupid gear ratios and the auto-start-stop. Don't get emotionally distraught by redlining 1st and 2nd on onramps, or cruising on the highway in 4th, or having to downshift to 3rd to pass.
Budget $2500 for a re-gear if you get bigger tires.
