    picked mine up 12/31.... 1000-5 non-deluxe

    Feedback on what i've experienced so far......

    1. Tons of power
    2. When doing a hole shot, theres a short hesitation
    3. Paddle shifters - useless unless you want to hold 1st gear
    4. DCT - constantly hunting through gears, but being it has 6 it quickly is no longer noticed
    5. Sport mode - great for showing off to your friends but regular mode is much more appealing
    6. 5-seat version - the jump seats are respectable and can fit an adult - on the negative, there are all kinds of places to store dirt
    7. Biggest complaint.... washing out the floorboards. unlike my big red which was flat across, there is a hump in the center for whatever is under it. unfortunately they did not add drain holes so if you are washing it, that area holds water. i see the use of a holesaw in my near future.
    8. fuel economy - 1/2 tank after 5 hours on the hatfield and mccoy pinnacle trail
    9. Suspension - LOVE IT, one of the selling points on my wife's end that it is plush by comparison to the big red
    10. Doors - i like that they swing all the way - they rattle bad. rear door rubber bumpers seem adjustable to take out slack -fronts dont
    11. EPS - great - it works as suspected - i do like the tilt option
    12. Cabin - they seem to have moved the foot wells inward some to compensate for larger tires so a little less legroom
    13. tire space - just bolted on 29.5 outlaw2's and they kiss the firewall just ever so slightly at full turn. with no lift

    Overall i am very happy with my purchase. As a note if you are paying MSRP then delivery and assembly, then you are paying too much. I paid less than MSRP and no delivery and assembly. Per the dealership delivery and assembly are built into the price.

    First order of business is a snorkel, second is stereo, third winch and fourth light bar and effect lighting.

    When you add the stereo, winch, and light bar, do you think you'll need to add a second battery?

    yup sure do. mostly for the winch and running the stereo without the machine on.

    I though the same thing about the paddle shifters when i first got it, Now i use them all the time, even in AT mode. Give it a few weeks
