I think the mountain edition in the middle of the JK era was the epitome of excessive special editions.FCA must be running out of ideas if we have to do a special edition of whatever that is haha.
I have never observed an automotive brand that plays reindeer games with paint colors and special editions, during the course of a single model year, as I have with FCA/Stellantis.
As big as 80s comeback stuff has become, they really missed the boat. Should have kept bikini pearl blue and put the retro 80s yj graphics on it. This tiki crap is ugly.I liked the setting sun graphic on the YJ Islander better than the Tiki doll graphic. Those seats look nice
I agree the Mohave glat is pretty awesome. I’m not a big fan of the bed of the glat but the stance the Mohave has from the factory is perfect.WTF Jeep, where is the Mojave? bring over the Mojave Wrangler that has actual benefits like better shocks, frame upgrades, steel knuckles, different seats etc. instead of another sticker package and painted top model. I am looking for an excuse to buy my 4th JL since after more research and a test drive I discovered the Gladiator was not for me.
Agreed.As big as 80s comeback stuff has become, they really missed the boat. Should have kept bikini pearl blue and put the retro 80s YJ graphics on it. This tiki crap is ugly.
why thank you for the kind acknowledgement! Maybe I'm just showing my age...wish they would have gone retro not just on the graphics but interior also.Agreed.
The Wrangler lends itself to properly executed retro packages, if only because the vehicle's aesthetic itself is unchanged from the time when the Islander package, for example, was current. That's actually an argument against the current effort; why borrow the well-regarded name and then do nothing that recalls the original? Shane's great presentation makes plain that FCA/Stellantis whiffed it.
Sell it the right way, or don't sell it at all.
