  1. Why a Wrangler? Pic & Story Thread... Share Yours!

    Thank you all for sharing! Hope to read more. I don't have a Wrangler story of my own yet but hope to fill this space soon. I can say that it's been a dream of mine for quite a few years now. I can't wait to join the fervent group of Jeep Wrangler owners. Even just the few stories above...
  2. Jeep Wrangler JL 2-Door: Our Digital Preview!

    Jeep has a habit of introducing new colors and axing current colors without notice so we could easily see new colors after launch. I don't think it'll be long before we see them introduce a yellow or orange.
  3. Order banks open when?

    Shouldn't be long now?? Almost October and production starts in almost 2 months to the date. :handsinair:
  4. Future JL owners - what mods / modifications do you foresee/planning (so far)?

    Now that we've seen much more of the JL, what do you guys foresee modifying? If that high line fender seen on the black Rubicon prototype is a Rubicon-only feature, that'll be my first mod.
  5. Opinions on purchasing 2017 JKU or wait on JLU

    After seeing last night and today's pics you'd being doing yourself a disservice by not waiting to see and drive the JL at least.
  6. Will the 2018 Wrangler receive larger stock brakes?

    13.74" rear brakes on the JT pickup! :surprised: Would be nice if this was the stock rear brakes for the JL/JLU too. Image from
  7. Will the JL feature a greater Payload Capacity?

    Me too! Towing capacity should increase just by virtue of the higher torque figures they'll have compared to the JK. Beyond that though a whole host of things will decide towing capacity -- transmission, rear axle, vehicle frame.
  8. 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Hits Dealer System - 1st Official Look @ Engines, Options, Packages, Features!

    Some were speculating that it looks bigger based on the leaked rear image - the sportbar's position in the trunk area compared to the JK.
  9. Toledo Plant Construction Update

    200 JL prototypes... surprised we haven't seen more on the streets especially of the 2 door. He mentions it wont be shown to the public until at least this summer. Granted it's almost summer but I wonder if that is from info provided to them to indicate possible summer debut.
  10. Which JL engine are you most interested in?

    Surprised they skipped DI since they're going for better fuel economy. Would have helped power output too.
  11. First Look: New Wrangler Roof With MySky-Like Power Retractable Top

    Sounds like a premium option. Good to have more choices as long as they give us traditional manual fully removeable tops too. AFAIK the mysky roof is pretty new and debuted on the Renegade just recently. Complex new features like this sometimes have teething issues so would be interesting to...
  12. Renderings: New Jeep Wrangler JLU Brought to Life

    Halo lights look nice. Very bright even through the camouflage. Will it be a feature on every model?
  13. Which JL engine are you most interested in?

    Except instead of the TJ's 4 cylinder's 147hp / 165lb-ft we should see somewhere in ballpark of 300hp/300lb-ft on the Turbo 4 :surprised: Quite an improvement since the last 4 cyl Wrangler.
  14. JLU soft top spied!

    Yea I think the reason for the heavy camo remaining on the rear is that what's underneath shows how the new roof structure works. There's other trusty members here that have said there'll be a cage structure after windshield and roof panels are removed so it might be exactly what you're...
  15. 2018 Wrangler Drops Camo, Shows Backup Camera, Roofline, Grab Handles, Signs of Foldable Windshield

    These prototypes don't look like the Rubicon and we’ve seen a hood bulge on every single prototype spied so far. I’m predicting we’re going to see fancier hood on even the standard models. The standard JK hood always seemed like it coulda used some more flare to it - lines, bulge, vents, etc.
  16. Will the JL share the new uconnect infotainment? I hope so.

    Jeep just announced the 2017 Compass this morning. It has the 4th gen Uconnect system with 3 screen choices just like @Milous said the JL Wrangler will get! From the press release: Fourth-generation Uconnect system includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the choice of 5.0-, 7.0- or 8.4-inch...
  17. Verified: 2019 JT Wrangler Pickup Truck Production Starts October 2018, Order Banks Open in August

    Yes and there's a huge small-mid size pickup pie to split. Almost 200k Tacomas sold in 2016. Over 100k Colorados. And over 600k F-150's! That's about 1 million small to midsize pickup trucks sold in 2016. I can see the JT pickup selling 200-300k easy in its first year.
  18. Will the JL share the new uconnect infotainment? I hope so.

    Good, so the standard radio straight out of the 90s will at least be replaced with a display screen? And hope that they fill the dash with the gorgeous 8.4" Uconnect. Look at this compared to the current display! Sad current one :(
  19. Verified: Engine Start-Stop (ESS) Standard on 3.6L Pentastar 2018 Wrangler Engine

    The Hurricane 2.0L turbo will come with direct injection so I'd hope the new Pentastar will too if it's supposed to be the top of the line engine for the JL.
  20. JLU Wrangler testing with larger and wider tires (285/70/17)

    Sounds like some specs have already been released behind the scenes. Funny that even hearing tire/wheel sizes makes the wait more fun. Thanks to all who are posting this advanced info.
