I’m envious - I love my Recon build which is one year old today. That said the 392 would be a blast. I just hate the thought of taking the financial hit on my 2020 and then needing again to add skids, winch, tires/wheels, and other smaller goodies like off-road lights and interior things like CCM mounts. Probably would not lift a 392 but it would need skids, a winch, and 315/70/17s at a minimum plus accessory lighting. Have fun and keep us posted....

I'm going to take a chance and subscribe to this thread with the hope that we can stay on topic and discuss and drool over this awsome machine. :)

Agreed! And it looks like all the off-topic posts have fortunately been removed, including mine, which I very much appreciate. (Sorry about all that. 😕 )

Now like you said, we can hopefully get back to what we're actually here for, the drooling. 🤤

You need 35s factory when the front end looks like a 50s frigidaire. Lolol
So why doesn't the Wrangler come with 35s from the factory? They both have the same basic rectangle design.

Probably stability with crash ratings(roll-over tests).

Bigger tires will do the opposite effect of preventing a roll-over since they raise the center of gravity. And not all Bronco models will come with 35s.

Looks great. Living through you for the time being till mine gets delivered.

As for the 33s vs 35s its all about the CAFE standards. Jeep will take a hit with their average CAFE rating and even squeezing one more MPG out of it by putting 33s on it helps. Anyone who buys this could care less about MPG. More about the fun factor. Ive had a TrackHawk for 2 years now and I smile every time I hit the gas. I'm sure this will have the same effect on my facial muscles. I'm thankful they finally put a V8 in hit and I've already made arrangements to put 35s on it before I take delivery.

Looks great. Im doing the same color scheme with the 4xe and the mud tires. Looks a lot better than the ATs. The blue tow hooks are coming off as soon as I get a new bumper.

I don't think CAFE is much of a factor for FCA when it comes down to Hemi vehicles. If this is the cause, then why didn't Jeep put a FAD system on the front axle for the 392? And why is there no 2wd available? Why not just put the 5.7L / 345 inside the Wrangler if the CAFE standard was a big deal?

Great looking Jeep. Love the bronze accents! Anyone know where I can get a bronze trail rated badge and Rubicon sticker (other than buying a 392)?
