  1. Toledo Jeep Wrangler Plant Assembly Tour

    There are no public tours of the plant. I just happen to know someone who works there. We had permission of the plant manager to see the JK assembly line. To get to the JK Assembly line we had to walk past the "new" JL line and there happened to be a JL there. Which I talked about on my blog...

    Oh I'm not sure, Just something I read somewhere on the internet.

    I know right!!! Truthfully I didn't have the choice, BUT I didn't push it. However, I am a loyal JKU owner. So they are my first love!
  4. Unwrapped 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU from production plant!

    I could kick myself about the tour. I wish I would have paid more attention and been more nosey! I was just so overwhelmed by seeing the JK/JKU's on the line (tunnelvision). But yeah about the conflicting info. From what I understand no one is working in the North Plant. They just got...

    I meant there is no bend in the ET renderings. Yes the test mules (who started calling them that btw) have bends.

    yep that's what I meant. Can't say... The journalist in me wants too. It goes against my grain to have zipped lips.

    I guess I picked the wrong emoji... It wasn't a shaking head no... It was a I want to spill the beans but I can't. You should be happy!!!!

    I figured that... Just saying the grille looks different.

    Those have to be aftermarket grilles. The darker colored Jeep the slots don't match up to what I saw. The top of the Seven Slots aligns with the top of the headlight. Also there is no bend in the slots.
  11. Toledo Jeep Wrangler Plant Assembly Tour

    I would love to have seen Kuka and Mobis. I didn't have time! We were just passing thru Toledo. But I plan on heading back. The Wrangler Experience is a great idea!!! There is a you tube video of a Toledo TV documenting their Cherokee, I believe it was a Cherokee, as it came down the line.

    Yep I am so behind the 8 ball on this! LOL!!! I was told it was a JL while on my tour.

    Not that this will help but it's a JL.

    My theory is Jeep is already using parts and pieces they plan on using on the JL, on some of the special edition Jeeps they have out now. i.e. the Recon, 75th Anniversary edition, the Cherokees grille is kinda like the JL, The Chiefs or Smokey Mountains hood, maybe those military style Dana's

    The rear bumper had the same look (75th anniversary JKU) as the front bumper in the pictures, plastic of course. The hardtop same as the JK. I am not real familiar with hardtops. I have a soft top and have been a Wrangler owner for about 4 years. Soft top the whole time.

    "Another soft top mistake Jeep Wrangler owners make is the folding of the Jeep Wrangler "W". When folding back your soft top, which can be a one person job... Edit: you need to make sure the fabric of the soft top is pulled away from the bars. When you are putting back your soft top in the first...

    You don't know what the Jeep "W" is? really?
  18. Unwrapped 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU from production plant!

    Well those are a lot of unanswered questions. I wish I would have found this forum before I went on my tour. I would have peaked a little longer and paid more attention to the details. I did hear that Dana is in (or building) the original Overland Industrial Park building. As well as other Jeep...
  19. Unwrapped 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU from production plant!

    How in the world is a power soft top going to make the Jeep "W"? When you say rear do you mean tailgate or the interior passenger seats and back? Well I can tell you the rear I saw (unwrapped), besides the bumper, looked pretty much the same as the JK/JKU's. It had a hardtop on. I'm guessing...
