  1. Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid Revealed With 50 MPG-E, 375 Horsepower/470 LB-FT Torque!

    Good to see that towing and payload figures are still decent. But the electric range is a disappointment. Was really hoping for 32+. In the winter a 25 mile advertised range is probably going to be less than 20... The weight increase is also disappointing, especially with how that battery is...
  2. I want the first 4xe Rubicon.

    In same boat. I would day one order (of Gladiator, which is supposed to go PHEV for 2022 model year), but need to hear a lot more info. Towing capability, payload, price. Need more info on this powertrain to make a call to keep waiting and stretch my JK's life, or just forget it and go with a...
  3. First look at the Jeep Wrangler 4XE hybrid electric PHEV in the flesh!

    Very interesting. Hopefully they still have to fill in the blanks on the "Towing package: Not Available". The CES PHEV Rubicon DOES have a tow hitch. The Pacifica PHEV was not able to tow (something about too much heat generated in the PHEV system by towing), and I was hoping that this new...
  4. First look at the Jeep Wrangler 4XE hybrid electric PHEV in the flesh!

    Only EVAP JK cracking failure that I'm aware of is the port that goes between it and the gas tank, and I don't think that has anything to do with the location of the EVAP skid. It's a fitting on top of the gas tank. Personally I occasionally hit the EVAP and have an Evo skid over it, but don't...
  5. First look at the Jeep Wrangler 4XE hybrid electric PHEV in the flesh!

    If you are regularly running double black rock trails, yes, I agree, it will get in the way, and this will not be for you. But really it it not that much lower than the EVAP on a JK. In a stock configuration the transfer case skid, trans crossmember, and forward section of the gas tank take...
  6. First look at the Jeep Wrangler 4XE hybrid electric PHEV in the flesh!

    They did a pretty good job with the battery placement. It is not any lower than the 2.0 eTorque battery, it just looks like it must be larger/longer. It's not any lower than the resonator on the exhaust. And it has what looks to be the same fuel tank as the non-EV models, so it should have...
  7. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    Thanks for those pics. Would be good to get one underneath the front as well, so we can see what base motor we're dealing with. They did a pretty good job locating the batteries. Looks like still an equivalent size gas tank as the non-EV models, which is good. You can see the coolant lines...
  8. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    From some of the earlier spy photos it does have a front axle (no IFS), but it did look like they were CV axles instead of a ujoint at the knuckle
  9. First look at the Jeep Wrangler 4XE hybrid electric PHEV in the flesh!

    Same. Need to know the range now, and what the payload/tow capacity is. Can't wait for more details.

  11. First look at the Jeep Wrangler 4XE hybrid electric PHEV in the flesh!

    Here it is: https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/jeep-wrangler-compass-renegade-4xe-plug-in-hybrid-ces-2020 Sounds like more details in March. Jeep is planning to offer an electrified powertrain in every one of its vehicles by 2022, and we're getting our latest glimpse of those efforts here at...
  12. JL 2 door on Slab Hill @ Badlands with Windy City Jeep Force

    We had several JL's with the Windy City Jeep Force at the Badlands on Saturday. A few 4-doors and then the 2-door in this video, which I believe must have started out as a Sport. Love seeing 2-doors out there and especially on the trails. The JL heads up the hill at 5:22 in the video.
  13. 2019 Jeep Colors revealed, including New BIKINI color

    Here are some pics of the TJ, I found it. 1998 Jeep TJ Bright Jade Satin Metallic
  14. Door hinge bushings

    I never had to replace my door hinge bushings on my JK even with salt spray from the roads in the winter. If you regularly grease them, they will hold up for quite a long time. I always just blasted the door pins and hinges with white lithium spray grease a couple times a year. The doors go...
  15. 2019 Jeep Colors revealed, including New BIKINI color

    This Bikini color looks VERY similar to a color that hasn't been on a Wrangler since the 1998 TJ... that color on the '98 TJ was Bright Jade Satin Metallic. I believe that the paint code in '98 was PQP. This was a pretty rare color on the TJ, almost no one had it, but it was the color of the...
  16. Favorite YouTube Channels? (about offroading/jeeps)

    Recommend not sticking to just Jeeps, there are some great 4wd channels out there that you can learn a LOT from and also have some Jeep content. Some of my favorites: 4WD Action (Graham and Shauno's adventures are great and well produced): https://www.youtube.com/user/4wdaction Ronny Dahl...
