This brings up another common EV advantage, which is operational cost. Cost to charge + actual maintenance costs are insanely low. Of course we don't trust FCA, so electrical reliability might be a sinker, but in general an EV doesn't cost anything to operate other than the initial cost...
I still think Jeep needs a true halo vehicle. The Rubicon trim is pretty much identical to the Sahara in many ways.
Sure - Jeep could make a stripped down Rubicon, but they don't want to give away the cow.
I say the Rubicon needs to either go back to the intent, or they have a new trim which is...
First thing I bought was rubber everything. My vehicle goes to the beach and the mountains very often. Within two trips there is sand everywhere, especially in the back where the tie down rails are. It’s a miserable vacuuming experiences. If I could just use a hand broom, it’d save me an hour...
I’m onboard with this.
The whole reason I bought a rubicon is to get diffs, axles, the usual stuff.
But what I really want is to have less forced creature comforts, and things that are too expensive at the trim level.
Using the Defender as an example, they have these cool patches to protect...
There's a massive market for these "retro" and resto-mods out there for the Internationals, all these old Defenders, TJs. All these vehicles are 150k plus though. I think that Jeep can create something that chases this group of people and make the safe profit.
The aftermarket has a pretty solid handle on the exterior, but's the interior I am concerned with.
Basically as rough and retro as what a Toyota 76 delivers in Australia and the 3rd world markets.
I mean, sure the leather trimmed stuff is cool, but when I conjure up an image of the Rubicon - I...
When is Jeep finally going to go backwards in time and make the Jeep far more utilitarian?
Things such as:
Abrasion resistant, non-leather seats.
A real rack mounting system for the hard top.
Durable stock Rubicon rims.
Real mount points inside around the...
Just to be clear, you guys are arguing over the wrong thing. Portland Place is basically an original HOA before they were popularized (late 1800’s) The street, and gate is private property to that community. Everyone was trespassing, albeit peacefully. There was no “mob”, but theguy did have the...
So I did a survey a few months ago. Jeep was asking about “branding” for the radio, so they are working on something, but my guess is 2022.
I just don’t want to get into the habit of upgrading my vehicle like a phone because next years model has 40% better options.
I don’t want regurgitate other threads on the same subject, but FCA forcing me to buy a Rubicon trim to get a subset of the features is where Ford diverged.
I want the Rubicon capability without having to buy Dana 44s, transfer case etc.
I want my Rubicon to be more utilitarian, and not a...
Just to be clear, I am not interested in the Bronco, but the change in lineup as Jeep’s response. If suddenly I can get factory rims, 35”, fox shocks and a V8 for 10k more, that’s my budget right there, but with more content.
I want to benefit financially from Ford’s war with Jeep.
Anyone else like me has cancelled their planned upgrades, in light of the new upcoming content battle by Jeep vs Ford?
I had planned new rims, tires, bumpers, rock rails, roof rack. Now I am waiting a year or more to see what the future brings for MY21-22.
Small wish list,
35” stock (37” option)
High abrasion fabric seats. Maybe something like a waxed canvas. Why is there leather in a vehicle that says “Rubicon”.
Exposed door trim, like LR defender.
heavier duty center rest.
Rubber flooring option.
Rear area rubberized, why is...
