I think we're more concerned with the 3.6L V6 + BSG in this thread, not the 2.0T implementation. You should probably ask that in the 2.0T forum, as I'm sure there's someone that has a similar setup there. Most of us in this conversation don't own a JL yet, hence the question in the title.Here's my take. I want a 2019 Rubicon. I plan to place aluminum front and rear Rock Hard 4x4 Bumpers. They will be about 60lbs total. I will put Rock Slide engineering step sliders. Those will be 200lbs. I'll also likely put aluminum skids on it.
So that's about 260lbs. Maybe 400lbs if I do the skids. Minus the stock parts I'm replacing I suspect I'm adding about 140lbs with skids and 30lbs without. The bumpers will be about the same weight as the plastic. The slides will be a bit heavier than the stock rubicon ones I'm sure.
From there I'm plus/minus on 35s and Mopar Lift.
If that 2 liter with the above gets me 20 city and 25+ highway then sure I'm in. But I've seen MPGs all over the map form 14 to low 20s.
To me less than 20mpg isn't acceptable. So I'm hoping the diesel or the plug in meet my needs. I've not really got a clue what the MPGs on the 2.0 will do with that setup and with a light foot. If anyone is rocking a rubi with steel bumpers in a 2.0 and can let me know their MPGs I'd appreciate it,
