I was running Imogene Pass between Telluride and Ouray, CO. I ran across these guys with Michigan plates, a laptop mounted to the dash, and a non standard exhaust pipe. At the top of the pass we were both stopped and I asked them if they worked for Jeep, and one said said "yes". I asked if there was anything special under the hood. His reply was "just a boring regular 3.6 BSG". So Jeep is testing the 3.6 BSG in a Rubicon at high altitude. I know it is probably just a mule, but thought I'd share.

3.6 BSG Rubicon is available in the Canadian market for 2020
Interesting, I didn't know that. That makes me think the USDM lack of a rubicon/BSG is all about what some bean counter decided for this market.

Non standard exhaust ? Hmm, maybe he just gave you that answer to shut down curiosity, wonder what it could be, if hiding in plain sight..
