Does anyone know for sure if 392 is a one year only run?

Not sure why they wouldn't continue production. It's all about the Benjamins.

We all know its short lived production. The definition of short may vary. Highly likely to have very very good resale value. I placed an order now so if significant change is seen for my2023, ill probably sell mine to vroom after placing a new order.

How many current 2021 392 Rubicon owners are wishing that they waited for the 2021 392 Recon Rubicon package to be available or possibly the 2022 392 Recon Rubicon if it will be available.

Just like the fact that you can get out of the 3:73 gears and into 4:46 or 4:88`s for 35" or 37" tires.

The BFG KO2`S are so close in weight 317/70/17 C Rated to a 37x12.50x17

Anyone know about any changes from the 2021 392 Recon Rubicon to the 2022 392 Recon Rubicon? or any changes from the 2021 to the 2022 Rubicon

Jeep did not invest in all the modifications needed to bring us the 392 to limit it to a year or two. Bean counters rule. The 392 will be around for some time to come. How long? I do not know, but I am not worried about waiting for the 2023 model year before I get one.

It makes sense that Jeep would want to milk this for all they can … big margins and gives them a halo vehicle. But, the 392 was put out under Trump-era mileage standards before Biden was elected. If the Obama-era standards were in place now, I don’t think we’d ever have seen a 392 … and the Biden Admin has already been saying they want Obama-era standards back.

In my opinion, a change back to, or exceeding, Obama-era mileage standards has the very real possibility of killing off the 392. Those initial standards back in 2012 were at 5% improvements in fuel economy year over year, 2021-2026. That was dropped to 1.5% under Trump. I don’t see how the 392 continues if 5% or more comes back … unless possibly jeep starts offering all-electric vehicles to greatly offset the 392.

Since I worked for a new car dealership (Chevrolet) for more then 35 years I can say that Sales Mangers are pretty unknowing of future vehicles and what the manufacture has plans for down the road. All being said, SM's are sales minded and what they have at the time to sell is where they are today, not looking down the road on what going to happen. SM's will tell you what you want to hear, just like any one selling, that's there job, many may not have there job if not producing today, so six months down the road is not relative to them. Since no one really knows which way the economy will go in the future and what Jeep sales will be 2-3 years form now, I think no one can really tell what Jeep will be producing and what it will be model wise. Too many variables today and the future can change overnight, if you don't think so, just look back a year, or so.

Spot on, the Xiden Administration announced they are not only going back to Obama-era standards but making them even more restrictive...If I were a betting man (gambling is not one of my vices) a 2023 392 Wrangler is not a bet I would take.

I'm not gambling because I'm not that hard core on a 392. If it goes away, oh well. Technology marches on. :)
