  1. Jeep Introduces New 6.4-liter V-8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept

    I find it highly unlikely they lose money on every Ram with the 5.7, but I apologise for suggesting Jeep has the ability to do a V8 for less than $20k. I retract all previous comments on what Jeep could do and promise to complain about the $80k price tag on a vehicle that doesn't exist in all...
  2. Jeep Introduces New 6.4-liter V-8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept

    There are a lot of angry people over an engine here. I thought we were only supposed to be arguing about wearing masks this month
  3. Jeep Introduces New 6.4-liter V-8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept

    A lot of you seem to really be stuck on this $80k price prediction. I guess that is possible, but realistically why would this engine add $20k in costs? The 5.7 in the truck is only $1500 option over the 3.6. Jeep could just as easily, put a red interior, some Fox shocks, the 5.7, and some...
  4. Jeep Introduces New 6.4-liter V-8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept

    The Bronco was nice, just not really into the styling right now. Maybe it will grow on me. Some of the features are appealing, so hopefully it forces Jeep to make some improvements.
  5. Jeep Introduces New 6.4-liter V-8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept

    My best guess is, first this is an attempt to steal some headlines from the Bronco, which will probably steal some Wrangler sales. Second it is preliminary work at the possibility of putting a V8 in. If it really happens it will be the 5.7 as an engine option, with maybe some other minor...
  6. Jeep Introduces New 6.4-liter V-8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept

    I assume this is one of the Moab concepts that didn't get released due to COVID. Being released on the day of the Bronco unveiling must be a complete coincidence
  7. Mark Allen Says Full Electric Wrangler EV Can Be Even More Capable Off-Road

    If they can get battery price down and increase range a Jeep with each wheel independently powered would be great. We'll soon see the Hummer EV, but I expect it to be $80k+
  8. Off-Road Capable

    Don't be stupid, your Jeep can go to either the Sahara or Moab. Why else would it be call the Sahara Moab? If you plan to go to anywhere else you won't make it very far. The bad news is your wife is going to leave you for a real man with a Rubicon Do you really need a bunch of random people...
  9. Hemi

    If you have $30k of extra money AEV and others will put a Hemi in it. Currently AEV offers the 5.7 and 6.4 in the JK with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty. I am confident the JL will be no different when they open up orders
  10. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Ordering Shows 3.0L CRD Diesel V6 (w/Manual Transmission?) and 3.6L BSG Engines!

    The idea you will save money on a diesel is false. First off the engine cost itself usually takes well over 100,000 miles to overcome, next add in more expensive fuel, DEF, increased maintenance costs and it is clear that a gas engine is cheaper for over 99% of the population. The real benefit...
  11. Jeep Wave Etiquette

    I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you wave now...
  12. What is the link between torque and rpm?

    It doesn't mean anything. Tourqe lower in the power band is preferable, peak numbers are not really that important unless you are just want bragging rights.
  13. JL comfort if lifted

    There are a few things that make the biggest difference to me in how it rides. With the comfort you are referring to the biggest thing is probably the tuning of the suspension components and the larger tires. You can have softer or firmer shocks, and of course when you step up to some of the...
  14. What is the link between torque and rpm?

    The engine explodes at 4,801 RPM
  15. Sticky tailgate?

    I was expecting a whole different problem when I saw "sticky tailgate"
  16. Jeep Wave Etiquette

    Its going to be ok. Take a deep breath, count to ten, and repeat after me. My jeep is not inferior, my jeep is not inferior I don't even have a Jeep at the moment and my previous one was a Sport that went everywhere I needed it to, and most places it shouldn't have been
  17. Jeep Wave Etiquette

    Sorry, I only wave at Rubicons. Sports aren't worthy The other person probably has no clue about the wave. Jeep has brought in a lot of new customers and many are probably not well versed in the history of all things Jeep like those here on the forums
