  1. 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Range / Mileage EPA Figures Published

    Definitely a bait and switch to advertise one thing and then get shutdown by the epa...although I'm sure in a perfect scenario someone could hit 25 miles all electric...good example is the q5 plug in...they can go 28-29 miles but epa said otherwise. Will wait to see what big time reviewers can...
  2. Electric Jeep Wrangler EV to be called "MAGNETO" Concept?

    This is prob the cheapest way to electrify the wrangler...keep everything the same as the 4xe except for the extra batteries and the one main electric motor....I don't think they really care for being really efficient...efficient and off road capable doesn't go hand in hand if price is of concern.
  3. Electric Jeep Wrangler EV to be called "MAGNETO" Concept?

    Technically all a transmission need is a input shaft from a power source...doesn't really matter if it's from a regular engine crankshaft or an electric motor shaft. Would be easier to just replace the ice motor with electric and call it a day....wranglers do not to be speed demons so 300hp 500...
  4. Electric Jeep Wrangler EV to be called "MAGNETO" Concept?

    Yeah seems as though they just replaced the ICE with a larger electric motor which makes the most sense for an off-road vehicle. They can keep pretty much everything as is drivetrain wise...maybe beefier diffs from the added torque. Put batteries where the gas tank would've been and find other...
  5. Remove Hood Decals? Am I crazy?

    I feel the same way about the decals....the baby blue just looks too feminine to me... definitely would paint all the blue hooks black and change all the hood decals to a regular rubicon decal.
  6. 4xE Order Status??

    Oops...thanks !
  7. 4xE Order Status??

    Is anyone worried about the reliability of this first gen 4xe wrangler? I'm on the fence between the JLUR 4xe vs a regular rubicon. For me I'm worried about the potential issues that might come buying from the first batch. Thoughts?
  8. Sahara 4xe Missing Blue Tow Hooks

    Wish there was an option to have a blue decal and blue hook delete...is it weird that's the only thing I don't like about the 4xe? Or the hump when seats are folded down...wish it were flush with rear cargo area. O well
  9. Sahara 4xe Missing Blue Tow Hooks

    When looking on the configurator i do not see a black hardtop option...why is it missing you think? or should that be the standard? it shows the soft top by default.
  10. Bronco vs Jeep Wrangler mega thread

    Looks to me they went down everything the Wrangler can do and tried to improve every aspect of it. Lots of big talk for the bronco...but the jeeps are tried and true, can't wait to see the head to head chaos once these become available. Bronco engine tho 310 hp and 400+tq ...damn they came out...
  11. “Faulty Wiring Harness” caused 2.0L fire

    Sucks for those affected...but these are the kind of problems 1st Gen cars have. A self combustible vehicle is no bueno. I am currently dealing with a similar a recall with my M3, wiring harness issue too. I don't have any symtoms but it's kinda scary a car could catch fire just parked in your...
  12. If you were wondering about the MPG ratings of the 2.0L Turbo...

    Now that we know what the EPA rating really is, on paper it's a decent improvement over the 3.6L. The 2.0L wont really save people money but would keep you from refilling up as often which to me is a big deal. I could potentially drive 50 miles longer without having to top up which is about 2...
  13. If you were wondering about the MPG ratings of the 2.0L Turbo...

    Wow my 22/26 wasn't too far off...22/24 ain't bad I guess...not sure why the highway is about the same as the 3.6l...hopefully real world test show an improvement in this area, which seems to be the case with turbo engines in my experience.
  14. What's the point of the 2.0t?

    Any oem manufacturer who builds a turbo engine correctly can have their motors in the 400 hp range easily with let's say a 2.5L 4 cylinder engine. They don't because of cost and protecting other cars in their lineup. Japan manufactures use to have a gentlemen's agreement to cap hp at 280hp, so...
  15. If you were wondering about the MPG ratings of the 2.0L Turbo...

    Good eye! Thats pretty promising..22/26 isnt far off then...24/28 with bsg is not entirely out of the question.
  16. If you were wondering about the MPG ratings of the 2.0L Turbo...

    Hopefully the bsg will help the city epa...and it seems the stevio is prob tuned for higher performance which will hurt it's epa.
  17. If you were wondering about the MPG ratings of the 2.0L Turbo...

    Based on the current epa figures with this engine, the new Wrangler has to be better than 19/24. No car or truck is under 25 combine right now with this engine. Still waiting to see!
  18. If you were wondering about the MPG ratings of the 2.0L Turbo...

    If the JL could match that with 23/31, the 2.0L Turbo would be a no brainer.
  19. Production Models 2019

    I'm waiting for a 2019 JLUR because first editions tends to have manufacturing bugs. Although they said they've put over 3 million test miles in research for the new JL, Those mules were hand built units, so making these in the tens thousands will always have first edition bugs. We will see!
