  1. JL Camping plans

    I'll second the idea of a Little Guy teardrop trailer towed behind a 2 door Wrangler. I used one for a 2 week camping trip in the Florida Keys - it was fantastic. The rear deck cooking facility was all I needed complete with a two burner stove and a small electric fridge. It even had A/C in...
  2. Staying or getting off the bandwagon?

    I understand this is an old poll -- maybe time to get a refresh now that many more details on the JL are out. For my purposes, the decision time has come and I will wait a few years to see how things develop with the JL model. In the mean time, I have found a 2016 JK Sport S (2 door) with...
  3. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Price MSRP, 2.0L Turbo MPG, Colors Previews Shown in JL Internal Info Sheet

    One caveat - when Jeep released the first pictures of the JL, there was an error made on the Jeep page that showed a 2018 JLU with a starting price of $30,445. This was removed pretty quick but it is possible that the pricing has changed somewhat since these screen prints from early August.
  4. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Optional & Standard Features Availability Per Trim (Sport, Sahara, Rubicon)

    In the JK order process, adding the cold weather option ALSO changed the tires to all terrain B F Goodrich K02. I REALLY hope this tire change carries over with the JL Sport S order process (2 door in my case).
  5. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Optional & Standard Features Availability Per Trim (Sport, Sahara, Rubicon)

    Thanks...that PDF gives me everything I need to know...EXCEPT ...pricing. Once the 2 door order banks open and have pricing I can get serious about placing an order. It looks like a 2 door Sport S with some few options will fill my needs/wants...I might drool over a Rubicon with the same...
  6. So what JL Wrangler aftermarket parts & products do you want to see first?

    85 pounds according to the manual that was leaked...see page 396 I figure about 50 pounds for one of the stock tires so one 30 pound bike on the frame will work out OK. Two or 4 bikes will be a no go especially if you are expecting to use upgraded and larger tires.
  7. So what JL Wrangler aftermarket parts & products do you want to see first?

    Doesn't that type of mount still keep the rear door from opening with bikes mounted? I have looked at the swing away type of mount but that may still block the camera view due to the tall post. There is a type of mount that clamps to the spare tire instead of the frame of the tire support -...
  8. JLWF will report 2018 Wrangler JL reveal live from LA! What do you want to see?

    The leaked manual has the details on pages 170-171. The wires are in the passenger side panel and the main fuse box has the connections. According to the fuse descriptions on pages 389-391, F50 and F72 are 10 amp circuits with F93 and F92 set as 40 amp circuits on Aux switches #1 and #2. The...
  9. QTDDTOT: Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    Is the heavy duty spare tire support hinge system needed assuming I find some way to hang two bicycles (30 pounds each) on the back on the spare tire? I'll be using the upgraded tires (KO2). The manual says 87 pounds max on the standard support.
  10. QTDDTOT: Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    OK - I have never owned a jeep but hope to get a 2 door Wrangler - JL most likely unless the dealers are REALLY excited about discounts on JKs. As an experiment on vacation, I rented a Wrangler Unlimited (no 2 doors available) in Hawaii and drove it for a week ending up with just over 1,000...
  11. JLWF will report 2018 Wrangler JL reveal live from LA! What do you want to see?

    Another for the CB prewire especially where the two ends are located and the type of antenna connector.
  12. JLWF will report 2018 Wrangler JL reveal live from LA! What do you want to see?

    For the 2 door JL model: 1) Distance from the back of the second seat when folded forward to the tail gate - Looking to see how much "trunk space" can be used before removing the back seat. 2) Maximum total width between the two outside edges of the rear view mirrors. Looking to see how much...
  13. So what JL Wrangler aftermarket parts & products do you want to see first?

    With a spare tire mount, I can leave the bike mounted when opening the rear door. With a hitch mount, the bike and mount will block the door. Also, the tall upright post on many of the available mounts will block the camera. Using a hitch mount that folds down does not solve the issue either...
  14. So what JL Wrangler aftermarket parts & products do you want to see first?

    Looking at the picture that has been posted here of the spare tire and the back up camera, it looks like my prime choice of a bicycle carrier model is toast. I hope someone comes up with a new design that will allow one or two bikes to be mounted on the spare tire support without blocking the...
  15. Things We Still Need to See

    Still waiting for info on CB radio prewire
  16. Staying or getting off the bandwagon?

    From what I am seeing at a high volume jeep dealer, it looks like some of their 2 door 2018 JKs are already discounted almost $3,000 off MSRP. If this becomes a trend, it might indicate $5,000 to $7,000 difference between a 2018 JK on the lot vs a 2018 JL at the time of introduction sold at...
  17. Interior dimensions

    One thing that I have heard from several sources is a replacement track for the driver's side seat. That moves the seat back a few inches and has more room for big folks. Do a search on "Big Boy Bracket" or similar. I think they have brackets that add either 2 or 4 inches. Also, the JL...
  18. Interior dimensions

    The only thing I am expecting in the 2 door JL is better visibility out the rear view mirror - especially if there is no one in the rear seat. This is due to the ability to fold down the rear head rests, the wiper mounted low on the rear glass instead of at the top on the jK, and the spare tire...
  19. Members old and new -- check in and wave hello!

    I have been a lurker here for several months now and really enjoyed reading about the new JL. I have always wanted to own a jeep wrangler but the time was either not right or the model available at the time did not have enough leg room for my taste, Now, the time is right and when I tried out...
