  1. JL Variants/Limited Editions

    It will be interesting since there will be both JK and JL sold at same time so you're not only having the standard models "compete" against one another but also any editions that may include more or less for each package. These are big money makers for Jeep afaik but I think they will have a...
  2. 2 Door information? Possible delay?

    There is no way they are going to delay the JL and release the JLU first. If anything they would hold both back. For one, I know if I were in the market for the Unlimited and I heard the 2 door version which is 95% the same vehicle were having issues and being delayed, I would NOT feel...
  3. Future JL owners - what mods / modifications do you foresee/planning (so far)?

    I would argue adding things like pre-wired CB and aux pod actually helps the aftermarket in a big way. Think of how much easier it makes for everyday Jeep owners to add a CB radio, winch, light bars, etc. who may not have the technical knowhow or want to go to the time/effort of wiring for CB...
  4. Jeep CEO confirms and discusses Hybrid JL Wrangler

    Very true. This isn't a sports car, a little extra weight is not a big deal when you get much better low end torque and gas mileage. Want less weight? Go topless and doorless.
  5. Will the last JKs get the new engines?

    Based on everything we have seen the JL's styling will probably be almost identical to the JK so you lose nothing by waiting IMO. As for new engines for the JK's last year I wouldn't count on it. I would think they would need to modify the JK for the new engines )except for maybe the upgraded...
  6. 2018 Jeep Wrangler (JL/JLU) reveal at NAIAS?

    According to Donlen 2017 Wrangler production started on 9/19/16 with initial orders starting on 8/11/16. If it follows the same pattern the JL shouldn't see production start any sooner than Sept. Could be even later since they will have to retool for the new model, just my guess. Here's the...
  7. 2018 Jeep Wrangler (JL/JLU) reveal at NAIAS?

    Where are you getting 3 months from? That would be July. Everything I've seen has JL production starting in Sept at the earliest.
  8. 2018 Jeep Wrangler (JL/JLU) reveal at NAIAS?

    Next up would be NY show which is only 4-5 months from when production would start. That's only 1-2 months from when we would see order guides. I would think Detroit would make the most sense but the JK/JL overlap could mean a soft launch so maybe a good way to limit a huge supply shortage is...
  9. Jeep Wrangler Pickup (JT) production starts Sept. 2018. Will come in 2 and 4 door

    So it will be based on the JL and not Ram?could mean somewhat disappointing towing/payload but if so seems plausible it will mimic the JL/JLU wheelbase variants
  10. Our New Jeep Wrangler (2018+) Unlimited and Pickup Preview Renderings

    He doesnt have to technically be a factory worker. There are managers that have plenty of access to this kind of stuff, even if not directly related to their job.
  11. JL Roof

    I'm more interested in the JT so maybe I'm missing something but what is the main complaint if the sport bar just becomes fixed/steel built on the body? I can see the freedom T top panels more or less staying the same and they make one large piece you can just pop off that opens up the rear seat...
  12. JK May Become "Wrangler Classic"

    That makes sense and is often how it's done when a new model is introduced. I'm assuming the "wrangler classic" bit is just an internal reference and not some JK last hurrah edition or anything like that.
  13. Jeep Wrangler pickup (JT) - payload and towing capacity?

    There is no question they will not want to step on RAM toes but the JT must have a higher towing capacity than the JKU if it is the appeal to new customers instead of reshuffling Wrangler buyers. The JT will almost certainly be based on a modified RAM chassis so it will have a much higher tow...

    A worker in the Toledo plant saw these on Reddit and said "Holy shit that's really close!"
