  1. JT (Wrangler Truck) pushed to late 2019

    I'm a little confused by this. Isn't the upgraded 3.6L going in the JL which is due out late this year? Is the S1 2019 you mention just in regards to the JT? If so is that when the JT is going into production?
  2. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Diesel Mule Spied with DEF Tank

    @Milous I read somewhere that the JL is getting 2 diesel engines being the 3.0L VM6 and a 2.2L diesel but that the 2.2 may be for the Euro region. Would you happen to know?
  3. Will Diesel Wrangler be Affected by Jeep and Ram's Alleged Diesel Cheating?

    Great news if true. I wonder where they are getting that they are continuing with plans for the diesel though. I haven't seen any public statements but maybe they reached out to them for comment (?) let's hope.
  4. How do I get JT Wrangler ASAP?

    This^ Just be prepared for pay a hefty markup for being one of the first. Speaking of, no offense but how can you be so sure you want one when next to nothing is known about it. Do you have a budget? What if it's 40k or more?
  5. New Jeep Wrangler to include gasoline, diesel, mild hybrid, full hybrid

    2019ish? Apparently that is not early enough for many who want to see it the first year of JL. The problem is they have built up so much pent up demand from all the teasing (intentional or not) over the years and offering it outside of the U.S. that many do not want to wait a few more years.
  6. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Aluminum Parts Confirmed by Alcoa

    I think powertrain engineering have made many auto makers lazy. Yea vehicles in general have all grown in size due to people demanding more utility/space, safety regulations, and people getting bigger overall (?) but we now have an industry full of bloated vehicles. Even go fast cars like...
  7. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Diesel Mule Spied with DEF Tank

    It's never about "need" tho is it? If they offer it as a choice there will be many who choose it and it has definite advantages on trails. The question is what your intended use is and it varies a lot among owners. If you are hitting trails, the diesel has massive low end torque advantage...
  8. Jeep CEO- new Wrangler "probably" not debuting until second half of 2017

    That's just my own speculation. CES car reveals are very tech focused which the Wrangler has never been. It seems like a very unlikely venue for a JL reveal but who knows. Maybe as DinkMan said the hybrid tech or they want to show off the new power roof options? I'd still be very surprised.
  9. Jeep CEO- new Wrangler "probably" not debuting until second half of 2017 Well that confirms it won't be at Detroit and no way they reveal it at a consumer electronics show. NY or later it is then. Trying to be patient...
  10. Jeep to bow out JK Wrangler with several limited edition models. Production ends Sept.

    I like the new color options but 5K over the Sahara seems excessive for what is pretty much appearance mods. And Jeep with all these decals now... :confused:
  11. New Jeep Wrangler to include gasoline, diesel, mild hybrid, full hybrid

    IF this ends up being true there's going to be very little reason to buy the JL imo. But i'm betting we do get the diesel in the US.
  12. Where will spare tire go?

    Me too. And if it's not a swing away door then they better not mount the spare on the rear. Gotta say though the spare looks awkward mounted on the side like that pic above.
  13. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Roof Design Previewed in Clay Models

    Yep, comparing it against what we've seen on the prototypes that's definitely true. There's already been stuff on the prototypes that clearly don't match this proposal model. But based on the info that's been posted here and elsewhere about the new roof, I think something like the roof on this...
  14. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Roof Design Previewed in Clay Models

    Nice analysis! I really hope you're right that the entire black portions of the roof can be removed (the grab handles would then make functional sense) but if they are then why bother cutting out those 3 middle pieces?
  15. JL Wrangler Clay Model Proposal

    Interesting you mentioned a more slanted back window. There's a few sketches on the board that show a much more raked C pillar. The second one down (the one white) is a little less drastic and I'm thinking might be what we can expect to find on the JL production version.I zoomed in to get a...
  16. JL Wrangler Clay Model Proposal

    I really don't like the strong Renegade influence in this model but luckily we've seen the spy pics and the "leaked" preview. *I think* it looks like they decided against that grill shape/design.
  17. 2018 Wrangler Images Revealed At Dealer Event! JT Pickup Previewed?

    Cool idea and that'd look much better than the Renegade's lights.
  18. Received 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL hood by mistake

    Wow that's the most telling indication that this is really something that shouldn't have been sent :) Definitely sounds more like it could be the JL hood.
  19. 2018 Wrangler Open Tailgate Reveals Angled C-Pillar Design?

    Reminds me bit of the previous Range Rover Sport.
  20. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Production Grille and (and LED Headlights?) Exposed!

    Could all the removable panels be glass? If it's for a removable top, that's gonna be one heavy top with the glass, struts, wiper, and wiper motor.
