JLU looks great even with the rough looking preproduction parts on it. The entire vehicle just looks more cohesive a design than before. The new front is the best view :like:
Roof looks like they're removable front and rear?
And I hope we're getting those BF Goodrich K02 factory tires! :please:
Someone here just posted the JT pickup's frame and axle.
Question is how much more rigid is it since we already know they will be sharing frames with the JL. At the least would think the upgraded...
Are you saying that's a diesel in the pic or there's a US diesel coming? If the latter we all basically know that already we just dont have a time frame when it will be available (besides some rumors about late 2019)
Personally I welcome some electrification for the Wrangler down the line. Check out what the Bollinger B1 is supposed to be able to do with its all electric powertrain - good performance numbers and even more storage space.
Exactly. Neither the sports bar nor the windshield frame give much rollover protection in a JK - see pics. The JL's rollbar/cage will provide actual rollover protection and extend all the way to the windshield.
JL's foll rollbar / rollcage setup:
Going from 1 engine to 3 is a big leap. It worries me that they will cut their losses and just axe the diesel since there's already an engine offering for better MPG. But I'm still holding out hope for it to show up for the JT at the very least.
I think that's the general consensus out there. I'm not sure if it's based in any truth but I remember some articles back in the day cited that insiders were considering either Scrambler or Gladiator. I prefer Scrambler myself.
Exactly, the Wrangler dominates the SEMA show as it is, it would be a great place to launch the JL and JLU. The Mopar section is also really large so perfect place to launch Mopar parts for it at the same time.
Wouldn't be shocked if the launch event is a standalone event though. The Wrangler...
