  1. First in-action photos + videos of 2018 Wrangler JL and JLU getting wet and dirty in New Zealand!

    Yea definitely looks like a snorkel on that leading camera car. :rock:
  2. First Official 2018 JL Wrangler Preview Images! 2 & 4 Door, in Firecracker Red & Granite

    It's gone. There hasn't been any padding spotted on any of the prototypes' roll cages either.
  3. JL & JLU Wrangler Axle Gear Ratios: 3.45, 3.73, 4.10

    Any guesses whether 4.10 will be optional or standard on JL/JLU? Doesn’t seem like this info is confirmed in any of the ordering info threads yet.
  4. Order 2018 JK or Wait for 2018 JL

    Your dealer is clueless. Send him the production timeline - The JLU production begins in Nov. So no reason it will arrive March-May of next year. It...
  5. Selec-Trac full time 4x4 4WD system discussions

    So Selec-Trac allows you to use 4x4 on dry pavement? Does it not cause axle binding / bind up?
  6. New 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL 2.0L Turbo Engine (Hurricane) FIRST spy photos!

    240HP/250-270 lbft zone would make sense. I was always skeptical how they would make the Hurricane the "base" engine in the JL / JLU if it was gonna make the rumored 300 hp / 300 lb-ft. Those figures are higher than what the upgraded Pentastar would even output, especially that torque figure.
  7. New 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL 2.0L Turbo Engine (Hurricane) FIRST spy photos!

    Probably means the upside of aftermarket (or MOPAR) ECU tuning will have a lower power ceiling than if engine was closed deck? Will be interesting to see what the factory boost level is.
  8. Tipster says 6 engines and several top options for 2018 Wrangler JL / JLU

    I've read rumors for both. Rumor for power retracting soft top was something like the Jeep Liberty "SkySlider" roof. And rumored retractable hard top was like the Renegade's "MySky" roof.
  9. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Diesel Mule Spied with DEF Tank

    So assuming the EcoDiesel gets cleared by the FCA to resume sale, you think there'll be a long term supply issue that might keep it out of the JL/JLU in favor of the JT? Hope that doesn't happen! I want a diesel but I don't want to get the JT just to get it since I don't need a pickup.
  10. Verified: Engine Start-Stop (ESS) Standard on 3.6L Pentastar 2018 Wrangler Engine

    But that's as easy to avoid as pushing the ESS off button. True, if you choose to shut your engine off often on the trail, you'll need to push the ESS off button everytime, but there's devices like the OBD II module that can permanently disable it.
  11. Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck (JT) Spy Pics!

    I think initially the JT pickup will be harder to obtain than a JL and JLU. Its production will probably be ramped up so we won't see a ton of supply at all dealers. It'll be a first of its kind model so there's pent up demand for it. And dealers will try to capitalized on that with greedy...
  12. Toyota coming with FT4X to take on Wrangler?

    That wheel looks a lot like the JL Rubicon ones
  13. JT/JLU will be 8 inches longer and based on Ram platform?

    8 inches?! Believed by whom to be 8 inches is the question. I dunno about that... doesn't seem like it from the prototypes spotted. Maybe it'll grow a few inches just from the more protruding front bumper but I doubt as much as 8"
  14. Will Diesel Wrangler be Affected by Jeep and Ram's Alleged Diesel Cheating?

    Ouch. News regarding this from the past few days: FCA has received "received various inquiries, subpoenas and requests for information from a number of governmental authorities, including the U.S. Department of Justice, the SEC and several states’ attorneys general. related to the alleged...
  15. Verified: Engine Start-Stop (ESS) Standard on 3.6L Pentastar 2018 Wrangler Engine

    Clearly ESS isn't well received by car enthusiasts so why did FCA make it so it can't remember last user mode in the cars that have it so far? There must be some policy, business, or legal reason for it.
  16. Removable doors on JL/JLU?

    I'm guessing like the folding windshield the I wish they'll give us the best of both worlds somehow and give us removable doors on the JL that will also have hinges and some better side impact protection built in.
  17. Verified: Engine Start-Stop (ESS) Standard on 3.6L Pentastar 2018 Wrangler Engine

    As far as what I've seen on forums, malfunctions with ESS isn't very common. Remember what you read online often seems like a bigger problem than it may actually be because people come online to complain about issues, but nobody comes online to post about how their ESS is working properly...
  18. JLU Wrangler testing with larger and wider tires (285/70/17)

    I like this talk about specific model specs. Tell us more :)
  19. Members old and new -- check in and wave hello!

    Welcome to the site droptopgal! You found the right place for everything JL. The JL roof sounds like it's shaping up to offer more roof types and more convenient to use than the JK - from removable panel top to a power soft top.
