    There will be something interesting from Jeep next week at the Chicago Auto Show. I can’t wait to see the reaction to it.

    Well, looks like Ram decided to copy the Raptor formula and is about to introduce the TRX with some decent tires and a Hemi 6.4.

    Hope they keep on going and update the Wrangler or at least create a RubiconX or RubiconTRX version.

    I saw that lame movie and that ford concept was lame as well. I kinda like the mag cover concept though. Minus the lame IFS of course. lol

    I will disagree with you also. lol. Most serious wheelers are going to go the rubicon route. You get quite a bit for your money. Likely even the SUPER serious guys who rip out their axles will still go the rubicon route.

    They definitely are. But I am certain that it won't be with high speed stuff in mind. Likely going to be a contender for the high end luxury SUV market. I'm curious as to exactly what they are doing for a platform. Rumors are all over the place for it.

    They can dick on you if you ride on hiways or busy roads for longer distances. For example hiway 87 you can go a few miles to connect trail (on my dirt bike) but driving to payson is probably asking for trouble.

    I'm from NJ and the tiniest infraction in a car, truck, jeep dirt bike is met with a ticket. I couldnt wait to leave there and people are STILL leaving it.

    My theory is they will poach but not that much, rock crawler or not. Much of it will have to do with whether or not they put in a great motor.

    I just started wheeling mine in technical. I was waiting to dump money into it because I wanted to see what the bronco had to offer. They waited too long to release it so I moved on and set my jeep up. The other reason not to wheel a new ruby or otherwise is the warranty. Many want to wait a bit. Another reason is they are such a hoot to drive stock. I was really worried the fun would end street driving it on 37's but it's still a hoot.

    to me this says that a lot of the comments on here may be close to the truth. If Ford is trying to be tied to something like KOH, it may be that they are looking for more of Ranger Raptor / raptor market for the Bronco than the Wrangler Rubicon. Less rock crawler, more all around performance off-road vehicle that also performs on the street. A lot will pass on this due to lack of SFA, but for others like me it is less of an issue as I want more of a raptor but in wrangler proportions.

    There is a Desert Hawk name registered under Jeep for future models/editions starting with the Cherokee (KL)
    https://www.fcagroup.com/capitalmarketsday/Presentations/FCA June 1 2018 CMD_Jeep Brand.pdf

    While we will likely never see a Trail Hawk Wrangler, kinda expecting a Desert Hawk Gladiator if it's still in production in 5 years.

    I think the Bronco will sell well
    No it won't people love Jeep
    I think it needs a solid front axle
    I like independent front suspension
    Nobody will buy one since it can't rock crawl
    Not many use their Jeep for rock crawling
    Jeep has best aftermarket goodies
    Ford is doing it right from factory, don't need aftermarket
    I like Ford
    I like Jeep
    Ok then, glad we got that cleared up!
