  1. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Diesel Mule Spied with DEF Tank

    I very much doubt that's a diesel considering the EPA refuses to certify any FCA diesels and there's no end in sight now that the EPA is preparing to file lawsuit FCA over excess diesel emissions. I was really hoping FCA would have been able to satisfy the EPA's inquiry already without this...
  2. Jeep Pickup (JT) Spied With Production-Intent Bed!

    Interesting, hadn't thought of that reason for the difference in front and rear track width. The JK has matching front and rear 61.9" track width so I guess Jeep didn't feel it was long enough that it needed help with turning radius.
  3. Which JL engine are you most interested in?

    That gas mileage improvement is likely what we'll see for the JL too since it'll be getting the same ZF 8 speed auto as the Grand Cherokee.
  4. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Sahara (JLU) Roof Exposed!

    +1 me like! Those LED rings are gonna look very distinctive and you're gonna know you're looking at a JL/JLU/JT model right away. I was hoping they wouldn't just get lazy and toss the 2017 JK LED headlights on the car and I'm glad to see they've made it different and very unique.
  5. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Aluminum Parts Confirmed by Alcoa

    That article was written just a few months after the aluminum F-150 started being made though so there may not have been enough time for accidents to pile up and for insurance rates to change to reflect that.
  6. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Aluminum Parts Confirmed by Alcoa

    Higher repair costs = higher insurance?
  7. First sighting of 2018 Wrangler JL testing off road - Moab, Utah

    That's awesome! Lucky you. Ditch class and follow with a camera next time :)
  8. First sighting of 2018 Wrangler JL testing off road - Moab, Utah

    How far from Moab are you? Probably closer than all of us. Grab your video camera and report back :)
  9. Great sketch predicting 2018 Wrangler JL

    Not sure I like the hood vent. Looks out of place like the hood came off a Dodge Charger. The fender vent I like though.
  10. 2018 Wish List

    Very innovative idea actually! Would actually fit with the Wrangler's keep-it-simple-stupid mentality in allowing for even easier door removal. I really hope we get some interesting new smart features in the JL and not just a slight external redesign.
  11. 2017 Jeep Wrangler Gets LED Headlights Ahead of 2018 Redesign

    Nice, so the speculation that those were LEDs on the prototypes was correct. The Renegade also got a nice interior/tech update, so the JL is shaping up to feature some nice new technology inside and outside I think.
  12. 2018 Wrangler Open Tailgate Reveals Angled C-Pillar Design?

    Seems like it to me. I think an angled C pillar could look good and give a the JL Wrangler a nice fastback shape. It'd also fit nicely with the new more raked windshield. Even a hardtop to maintain the same lines could look cool. Something along these lines...
  13. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Production Grille and (and LED Headlights?) Exposed!

    What's the bump in the front bumper? Winch mount possibly?
  14. Any chance of V8 for JL Wrangler?

    Agreed. With MPG requirements getting even more stringent it makes no sense to introduce a V8 when here's a turbo diesel coming. Better torque and gas mileage than V8. Only downside is lower redline and won't sound as good. Two things Jeep owners won't care about much compared to torque and MPG
  15. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Diesel Mule Spied with DEF Tank

    I'm not familiar with current diesel emissions standards, but maybe it's requires going forward to comply with EPA since DEF helps break down a Diesel engine's harmful nitrogen oxide emissions into harmless nitrogen and water.
  16. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Diesel Mule Spied with DEF Tank

    Didn't the new 8 speed auto need an elongated hood or something to fit it? This is just the current JK body, so that means the 8 speed doesnt need a longer hood?
  17. Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck (JT) Spy Pics!

    I think the rear will still get wide fender covers like the front. Once those are on, the tires won't stick out like this.
  18. 2018 Jeep Wrangler (JL) Mule Confirms Six-Speed Manual!

    Possible. That box can have the reverse gear either to the left of 1st gear or right of the 6th gear. Must be a good unit if it's being used in the Mustang GT350R.
  19. 2018 Wish List

    Pentastar V6 with DI. Better MPG doesn't hurt. Few cosmetic changes which means definitely no Renegade lights.
  20. Spied: 2018 Jeep Wrangler (JL) Unlimited Up Close!

    Probably the easiest way for them to hide any changes to the front fascia.
