  1. Jeep Teases All-Electric Wrangler "Freedom" BEV ⚡️

    This specific concept seems to be based on a JK platform…
  2. Two-door Model is Popular, but Jeep Ends It in Europe. Sign of Things to Come?

    The 2.0 and 2.2 diesel were both discontinued from the lineup, and they’re only selling the 4xe now. Wranglers are a rare sight in Europe, even more uncommon than Defenders were in the US, and the majority of them used to be 2 doors. A sport there costs more than a rubi here and gas is very...
  3. Import JL/JK Wrangler OR Gladiator to UK

    I would double check about the 3.6 and the Euro6 emissions standards - even if it may meet in numbers, it doesn't necessarily mean it has been registered/tested for circulation in the EU and to do that it would cost more money. Similarly, the cost of gas in the UK and Europe makes running the...
  4. Question on Dual Top for noob

    I live in RI and have a soft top all year round. It’s always down in the summer and in the winter the only downside is when it rains/snows in the highway there’s no wiper to clean the back window. If you’re caught in the rain driving topless you just need to pull the safari top, it helps...
  5. Has anybody ever regretted buying a Wrangler?

    My 2 door is my only vehicle and daily driver. It’s also my first wrangler and don’t regret the purchase at all. Sure it’s different on the highway, but you get used to it really fast. Don’t expect to drive it at 160km/h but it will be more than fine at 120/130km - it depends a lot on the...
  6. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT🤬. Paint issues...

    Thanks for letting us know Gary. Because of this thread I checked my doors and found out some bubbles in the same area! I also have some on one of the hinges, and since I’m due for an oil change in March I’ll take care of that too.
  7. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    I can‘t really speak for here in the US, as I usually just see charging stations at certain malls, but in Europe they became available in pretty much every public parking, malls, and main gas stations(for example highway gas stations generally have it). To incentivize people to buy EV’s, they...
  8. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    I really hope the 2-door wrangler doesn’t lose any further cargo space, I already struggle packing as it is now. In regards to the fiat 500, their main market is Europe, and they sell them a lot - now they only offer them in EV or mild-hybrid (same as etorque system in the JL’s but with smaller...
  9. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    They‘re presenting a concept and it makes a more poignant message by using the most iconic Jeep form. If it were to become a reality, which I hope it does soon, it will most likely come out as a 4door first.
  10. Overall Reliability?

    I can‘t speak for the 3.6, but the etorque on my 2018 2.0 sport has been flawless so far (and the rest of vehicle attached to it), and I love the start/stop feature, barely notice it. Good luck with your purchase, too bad you have to sell that CJ, it looks awesome!
  11. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    It’s a great a deal! And I heard that they also have this package that if you need to go on a bigger trip or somewhere remote, you can drop off your EV at the dealership and pick any other FCA combustion vehicle. I don’t know how it works in detail - but it’s this type of solutions we need while...
  12. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    Why not? 🙂 For instance, the 500e is already selling in Europe, where there’s a much bigger appetite and infrastructure for electric vehicles. The same thing applies to China, where emissions concerns are pressing. The only one lagging at the moment is the US, and honestly it’s about time we...
  13. Jeep Superbowl Ad with old CJ

    I liked both the ad and its message. Politics aside, this country is divided and it does need to work towards unification. Bringing Springsteen that has been an activist for civil rights and equality for ages was spot on.
  14. Jeep Wrangler 4xe hybrid gets First Edition model in Europe

    It‘s a high price, but you also have to take in account that Jeeps in Europe are far more expensive than in the US. For instance, a 2-door sport in France starts at 45000 Eur, and in Portugal it’s 53000 Eur... On top of that this is a “first edition“ price tag. In general Jeep is a premium...
  15. Top 10 things Jeep should have done

    I don't really think it's necessarily a top 10, it really varies from people to people. What I think is that Jeeps are unlike any other vehicle in terms of how personalization is core to its dna. They're basically a giant lego, and I feel that FCA (or now Stellantis) still doesn't fully address...
  16. Rear seat belt noise when top down

    This is the exact thing I did on mine (I used the black Velcro straps that came with my jeep), the flapping was driving me crazy. It works perfectly and it doesn’t affect the functionality of the seatbelt.
  17. Do Higher Trim Owners Look Down on us Sport/Sport S owners?

    If it makes you feel any better I drove past four wranglers this morning - two rubi’s, one sahara and one sport. The sport was the only one that didn’t wave, and it literally had a smiley face as a tire cover! 🙃
  18. Rock-Trac® Full-Time 4WD (safer on-road for teen?)

    I’m European (moved to the US at the end of 2019) and have always driven manual (except for a semi-auto Smart Fortwo). I may be biased but I prefer by far manual transmissions, not only you have a better overall control, but you get to know your vehicle better. Don’t get me wrong, I have...
  19. Topless Drivers

    Spent the whole summer with the top off but if I were to park it somewhere or the sun was too strong I would use it safari mode. Was caught in the rain once so I put the safari top and kept going - was surprisingly dry!
