There's no rear clutch. The rear is always fully locked or engaged (except for N).No it doesn’t make sense. Looking at it after the initial shock, it seems more like the Selections are really.
4AutoHi with electronically controlled clutch packs set at 50/50
4Auto set to 42/58 (or whatever the default FT ratio will be)
4AutoLo with clutch packs set at 50/50 and gear set engaged for 2.72:1 torque multiplier.
You can buy a Rubicon and still mod it to death. Just ask me and many others. Modding Jeeps is half the fun, if not more.This is my first Wrangler so I ordered the Sport so I can sit for hours and hours and figure out which bumper I want or rims or winches. I feel like buying the truck with everything already did takes away from alot of the fun.
Yeah but I don't off-road, rock climb, or anything like that. I'm buying a Wrangler for the open air experience. A Rubicon would be beyond overkill lol and hurt my pockets a little more than I would like.You can buy a Rubicon and still mod it to death. Just ask me and many others.

Aren't the front fenders plastic?Some miscellaneous tidbits:
- Half doors are coming for 2019 model year (first for the Rubicon and then for the other trims).
- Ecodiesel is coming for 2019 model year.
- Sky One-Touch Power Top features a canopy that scrolls back.
- Aluminum used on doors, door hinges, front fenders.
- Rear tail gate is constructed from magnesium.
"Part-time" means you can only have it turned on part of the time, as in when you're off-road. You shouldn't use part-time on dry pavement. "Full-time" means you can just leave it on that setting all of the time, off-road or on dry pavement, and you don't need to worry about anything breaking.So why does Jeep call it "4H Part Time"? Seems like it's really 4H Full Time when engaged.
This new system appears to be a Selec-trac 3, not quite the same as 1 or 2.The pic of the Sahara shows the 4H part time and 4H Full time. So did the owners manual. So i think thr Sahara had select trac 1.
Will we ever have an answer to this towing question? It would also be nice to know the meaning of life. Where art thou Jeep engineers?Gah, 3500lbs towing kills it for me, I'll have to wait for the truck. Amazing that my mom's Grand Cherokee with the same engine and transmission, 4" shorter wheelbase, weaker axles and weaker frame can tow 6500lbs (and tows without issue) and this can only tow 3500. Makes no sense. Only things I can think of limiting it are the removable top or inadequate cooling.
It's not just Jeep, that's pretty much the standard way of calling it by all manufacturers. We're stuck with the naming convention now.Why is Jeep calling it "Part Time"? That doesn't seem to make any sense.
The Direct Injection is new. How do you guys feel about this?Direct injection, coupled with turbocharging, enables more efficient combustion and increased performance. The 2.0-liter I-4 engine's fuel pump supplies the engine's 2,900-psi high-pressure common-rail injection system. These high pressures produce better fuel atomization and allow for more precise fuel delivery than port fuel-injection systems, which in turn improves both performance and efficiency.
The 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine is part of the Global Medium Engine architecture family and features Double Overhead Camshafts (DOHC), dual independent camshaft timing,
