    How well does a mtn bike fit inside a JLU? Is there room in the back to haul it with the front wheel off?

    Do the rear seats fold flat in a JLU? Can someone post a picture?

    While I’m asking random questions, has anything changed from 2018 to 2020 on a JLU rubicon?

    was planning to order a 2020, but I’ve seen lots of good deals on 18’s with less than 10k miles, so might go used to save 10-15k.

    Run! A used 2018 JL with less than 10K miles will more than likely a lemon law/FCA buy back. Plenty of left over new 2018 & 2019 left over Jeeps on lots if you look. In fact 2020 Jeep Pickups (not Rubicon) with $9000 off due to high inventory.

    What do you mean it will likely be a lemon law buy back? Why are jeeps being bought back under a lemon law?

    ALL vehicles are subject to lemon laws and a fraction of ALL brands are actually bought back by the brand. A vehicle that is bought back under the lemon law (check your state for your states rules) might be resold in the US or elsewhere, I believe or it may be scrapped. I have zero data to know what percent of cars that come back through the lemon law are resold.

    if you are interested in that 2018, you might ask the dealer about its history and check the title..... I am uncertain if the title needs to contain any information regarding the lemon law process if the car went through it.......

    Spend some time reading this forum going back 2 years. Like OP said google is your friend. I have been driving Jeeps since the military in ‘60’s & 70’s and many new CJ5’s since then. My 2018 JLR is my first FCA Jeep and after 2 years & 17000+ miles has been good. Only forum problem has been cracked windshield. But anyway research this forum and national complaints before to be informed before purchasing.

    They fit fine inside with the wheel off, mine is a 19.5” and the other is a 15.5”.
