  1. Just got home from Bronco event...

    Even with Ram, they are dropping content from lower level trims and using allocation for top level trims. Can’t get Blind Spot Monitoring on Laramie anymore but it’s still standard on the pricey Limited
  2. Wrangler 392: Looking to haul more than ass

    Found this interesting. Looks many countries have a legal towing speed limit, well under various US highways
  3. Wrangler 392: Looking to haul more than ass

    What is your JLUR’s max payload capacity? Have to remember the OP is looking at 2 adults & 3 kids, plus throw in a 100 lbs WDH and it’s close to payload capacity before adding tongue weight
  4. Wrangler 392: Looking to haul more than ass

    Look at the Power Wagon. GVWR is normally 10,000 lbs but because of its off-road setup GVWR is reduced to 8,565 lbs resulting in lower payload & towing ability. Bronco will be capped at 3,500 lbs towing too. These soft suspension setups for maximum articulation off road result in lower...
  5. Wrangler 392: Looking to haul more than ass

    Grand Cherokee/Durango are much sturdier tow vehicles with higher GVWR, GAWR and GCWR. Even at 6,200 lbs, the 3.6 is still restricted to 40 sq-ft frontal area. And remember J2807 max tow ratings only include 10% tongue weight, 300 lbs of passengers and 70 lbs for WDH. Adding passenger weight...
  6. Full MSRP on new orders?

    A few months ago discounts were better. The norm now seems to be only 3% below invoice
  7. Just got home from Bronco event...

    Looks like Ford will offer the full-time 4WD transfer case with the manual transmission.
  8. Towing 2018 Audi A4

    Tow dolly is about 1k lbs, auto transport is over 2k lbs. Add in a 3,500-4,000 lb car and you’re well beyond the towing ability/limit of the Wrangler’s brakes, suspension/axles You definitely need a different tow vehicle
  9. 2022 Rubicons will come with optional 35s, beadlocks, upgraded tire carrier

    Another thing to keep in mind was the 392 release video had a Crystal Granite riding on Nitto Trail Grappler 35x11.5’s.... but nothing came of that
  10. Differential fluid?

    The $12-15/qt synthetic gear oil (Valvoline, Mobil 1) at Wal-Mart/AutoZone, etc comes with limited slip additive already in it. $50/qt at the dealer is a waste of good money I also have the lifetime MaxCare and I’m not worried about putting in 75w90 vs the 75w85. It’s not a big deal
  11. JL resale values are insane!

    I’ve been waiting on a factory V8 Wrangler for 20+ years so the 392 is tempting. I hate most of the forced options on it though.
  12. Jeep 392 weight per axle - scale weighed

    Curious to see your door sticker with GVWR and GAWR
  13. JL resale values are insane!

    Decided to plug in my JKUR to Carvana. Paid $34,980 on sticker price of $40,820. The trade in value is currently higher than it’s original MSRP.
  14. Just got home from Bronco event...

    Interesting yours was only a $4k difference. Apples to apples build would put a JLUR just shy of $7k more than my JKUR $47,765 vs $40,820
  15. 2019 JL unlimited Towing a Camper question

    ^^ this. The stock transmission cooler is fine. The engine and brakes will be your weak point here. I’d be focused on 1) bigger brakes 2) increasing the engine cooling with a bigger radiator 3) additional engine oil cooler
  16. 2021 closeouts must be happening

    It’s just generic marketing mail. Dealers send this crap out all the time, even prior to current market conditions.
  17. Just got home from Bronco event...

    Agreed, especially since LED headlights (& fog lights) were standard on 2017-18 JK Rubicon (and Sahara).
  18. Changes in 2020 etorque four-cylinder engine to 2021

    Just the opposite. Start/Stop is smoother with eTorque
