  1. Is the 84:1 Crawl Ratio of the Manual Transmission Low Enough?

    It will be ok most of the time, but after adding weight and tires you may find yourself stalling more. When I started towing a little trailer off-road was when I said no more manual.
  2. Which JL engine are you most interested in?

    If they get too crazy with the price I will just build the ultimate JK. People are throwing out numbers like 60k, and I can build a beast of a JK for less than that.
  3. 4H Auto transfer case question

    Think old school 4x4 with locking hubs. You can put the TC in 4 hi or low, but unless you lock the hubs only the back wheels will actually apply power to the ground. Also, you have to lock both hubs or the axle with the hub unlocked will get all the power (unless you have a diff locker...
  4. Red dash poll

    Not that kind of jeweled.
  5. 4H Auto transfer case question

    Since the JK front axle doesn't have unlocking hubs, both axles are always turning and the front diff is always doing it's thing allowing the axles to turn at different speeds. It sounds like JL has 1 unlocking axle, so only one axle will be turning and the diff will just free spin.
  6. Red dash poll

    It should be body color. I hope it's removal because I would love to have a jeweled aluminum dash.
  7. Official Owner’s Manual, User Guide and Quick Reference Guide appear on

    That is one of my favorite new features that I didn't even expect.
  8. Rear Air Bags

    Thoughts: full cage, 4 racing seats with 5 point harness -> safer than airbags.
  9. Which JL engine are you most interested in?

    Until they don't. I don't think fully loaded 60k diesels will be the sales leader. I doubt FCA is planning for that eventuality either.
  10. Which JL engine are you most interested in?

    24k in 1999 dollars is a lot less than 60k in today's dollars, or else I misunderstood your point.
  11. Which JL engine are you most interested in?

    I don't think they will sell many at that price.
  12. 2018 Wrangler JL Unlimited vs 2018 Toyota 4Runner

    If you're thinking about a well optioned 4R, look at the Lexus GX 460. It's worth it for the V8, IMO. IMO, Toyota's do last longer, but when they do break things tend to be more complicated and expensive to fix because of some weird design choices. Starters under intake manifolds, comes to mind.
  13. 4H Auto transfer case question

    It might send some power to the front even in dry conditions without wheel spin detected. I think all these 1/2 ton truck system work about the same and I know both Ford and Chevy systems do that.
  14. Waiting for diesel?

    If anything it might be less due to extra weight, but that doesn’t really tell the whole story.
  15. Lets play The Price Is Right

    Yeah but it wouldn’t be the price is right if someone didnt bid $1. Lol
  16. Waiting for diesel?

    I’m going to wait, because I will tow with my rig. I’d guess at least 5k markup over the gasser.
  17. Official: 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Specs, Info, Wallpapers...

    There's no rear clutch. The rear is always fully locked or engaged (except for N). The front is locked in 4H (or 4 part time). In 4A the computer controls the clutch for the front driveshaft.
  18. 260 HP / 442 TQ

    Pretty solid numbers IMO. I wish I could buy one now!
  19. Which JL engine are you most interested in?

    Everyone has their own rationalization of why their choice is better than your choice. Meh. Still getting the diesel as it'll haul my stuff better. Still debating the truck vs. unlimited.
