They have in one of the threads Alleycat even posted some pictures of a few at the Toledo facility that were taken by employees.Does anyone know for sure that they are actually producing these 392 yet ? I think perhaps they haven't even started the production line...
I’m confused as the initial press release stated “Mopar 2 inch lift” and showed the 392 on 37s without issue. Now some press releases say 1” above Rubicon which sounds to me like the Mojave suspension which really is only an inch over the Rubicon and not the 2” gained over the Rubicon with the Mopar lift. Further evidence the 392 has the Mojave lift is the recent mention of the 392 having hydraulic bump stops like the Mojave.From Facebook a few weeks ago

The Mojave lift and the Mopar 2” lift are two different suspensions and heights.
Can anyone tell me from the picture above if this is the Mojave or Mopar lift?
The difference is the Mojave can likely accommodate 35s while the Mopar 37s.
The ultimate would be the Mopar 2” lift with the hydraulic bump stops of the Mojave.
I agree based on the Bronco Sport which looks smallish and cheap, but the regular Bronco isn’t out yet as far as I know and looks MUCH better. I still ordered the Jeep (because of the 392), but absent that I would have at least given the Bronco (non-Sport) a look.Drove along side a new Bronco today, granted its not a very good review to judge a book by its cover but just seeing that thing drive down the road, I am sure glad I decided to get the Wrangler. This was a Bronco sport and it struck me to be more like a 4 runner or any other small SUV.. Those doors must weigh a ton, they don't look like they should be taken off... the package was just boring...I don't think it will be much competition for Jeep...
i noticed it said that as well, but “rebound stop” is referring to the internals of the shock itself , it’s providing a smoother rebound after a hard compression. it’s not the hydraulic “bump stop” which would be awesome it it was on the 392Anybody notice the 392 has Fox “ hydraulic rebound stop(s)” up front like the Mojave?
There are very specific regulations any automaker has to follow. First one that comes to mind is coverage of the tire by the fender. That is limiting to start because of the geometry of the Jeep and size of the fenders (notice that the Rubicon has larger tires but also has different fender flares that are larger than the sport / Sahara)I never understand why they only spec these narrow rims on every trim. I like the looks of stock jeep rims but you can't fit anything fun onto these 7.5inch wide rims. Guess it's the offset.... but at least make it an option from the factory to get at least 8 or 8.5 if not 9 inch wide rims. Why is that so hard Jeep?
They do sell a mopar aftermarket wheel that is 8 inches wide..... that alone would be nice as a factory option. but yeah.There are very specific regulations any automaker has to follow.

The other is that I would assume that Jeep has only certified this vehicle (crash test,etc) with a certain size wheel and in order to go larger than that they have to recertify which is hugely expensive and they may not want to do that.
Only speculation of course but I do know automaker are quite limited by regulations.
I do not understand the 33-inch tires. I am ignorant of what standards have to be met regarding maximum vehicle height, bumper height, maximum center-of-gravity and dynamic characteristics that have to be met form crash testing. I am assuming this has something to do with it?Updated with link to 392 Build & Price:
