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

    Wheeling all day without engine noise is a huge, major, impressive development. Driving around town, not as much (but I certainly wouldn't miss the hurricane fan of my JLU).
  2. Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid Revealed With 50 MPG-E, 375 Horsepower/470 LB-FT Torque!

    Water simply isn't a problem for electric drive-trains and batteries. There are videos all over the place of Tesla's fording deep water without any issues. They are sealed systems, nothing gets in or out. No air intake to worry about, which is the biggest issue with ICEs and water. You could...
  3. Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid Revealed With 50 MPG-E, 375 Horsepower/470 LB-FT Torque!

    Counterpoint: there is a huge market for these types of luxury large SUVs, and Jeep hasn't had a product for that category since the Commander (which was really a "large mid-size"). I think there is a market for this, and it will not cannibalize other existing models.
  4. Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid Revealed With 50 MPG-E, 375 Horsepower/470 LB-FT Torque!

    Full electric power while in 4Lo will be an amazing new way to offroad. I wonder what the actual horsepower and torque numbers are while crawling electric. With the on-road range of 25 miles, you likely could wheel an entire trail all day and never have to engage the ICE. This is the truly...
  5. Wrecked new Rubi today. At least Rubicon is tough!

    I had a similar accident with my TJ. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/jl-crash-tests.2780/post-136815
  6. Aux wiring & after-market harnesses

    I spoke with PIAA and they basically said they just include the heavier duty fuse as a safeguard against other connected equipment, not the lights themselves. I cut the harness out completely and went ahead with wiring directly to Aux 3 and it has been working flawlessly since. If you want to...
  7. Warthog JLUR Rig Journal

    " Warthog" after the vehicle in "Red vs Blue" or RVB" Lol or the vehicle from the most popular Microsoft Video Game Series ever made...Halo, from which RVB was created.
  8. Wheel Falls off on Highway After Tire Rotation

    Literally had the exact same thing happen years ago with my '98 TJ Sport on the interstate, same wheel and everything. Watching your own wheel bounce across the highway as sparks fly is certainly a surreal experience. I was young at the time but sent a very sternly worded letter to the...
  9. Trail Cam from Gladiator to Wrangler

    I've looked all over but can't seem to see anything about this...is it possible to use the front cam (or stock rear cam) and record the data so that it is a "dash cam"?
  10. The FIX for the drip rail water leaking that anyone can do

    You can use pretty much anything. I used fun-tack. It eliminates most but not all of the leaking.
  11. Killer soft top tabs

    I had this problem and took care of it with the simplest of mods.
  12. GM Announces Hummer EV coming in 2021

    Yeah those HP/Torque numbers seem way off.
  13. GM Announces Hummer EV coming in 2021

    30 Second Superbowl spot to feature all electric Hummer General Motors announced Thursday that it will start selling a battery-powered Hummer pickup truck in September of 2021. At least part of the new Hummer will be shown in a 30-second television ad featuring basketball star LeBron James...
  14. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    You don't present any technical details so while I respect your experience, I doubt that a purpose-built electric 4WD system designed from the ground up for traction and off-roading would function in a similar manner. Software or new hardware can replicate the function of all kinds of diffs...
  15. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    For reference, here are the much more powerful Tesla motors in the D series. Anything under the JL would be the size of the Rear Drive unit or smaller most likely.
  16. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    The Pacifica already used such a system. But it would be horribily inefficient at delivering power to the wheels.
  17. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    That's the Pacifica model. Hopefully they don't go that route because I doubt we'd be able to get any benefit of pure EV 4WD out of it...it would essentially have to power the entire traditional transmission and drivetrain and would be far less efficient than independent motors at the wheels...
  18. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    It's worth noting that there are already converted fully EV Jeep Wranglers in the wild that have run the Rubicon Trail.
  19. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    This is why I said I think we'll be getting a dual EV motor JL vs the single rear motor of the Renegade. The single motor on the Renegade is already capable of delivering power independently to each wheel, with an "electric diff" that can instantly transfer power. So you don't really need 4...
  20. Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be name of PHEV Hybrid Electric model. Coming late 2020

    We don't have much to go on with the JL, but the Renegade PHEV has a separate rear electric motor that isn't tied into the rest of the powertrain like the Pacifica is. The system is called eAWD, and uses ICE for the front wheels and electric for the rear without any connections between the two...
