Has anyone heard if the Wrangler line will shut down over the holidays? The Toledo Blade reported the line worked through the last two years, except maybe Cristmas and New Year's day, but I haven't heard anything about this year.

JLEngineline is a forum member who works at the Toledo plant. I think he reported the plant will shut down January 11th thru the 22nd.

I'm surprised theyd shutdown unless orders slowed way down.

Automotive News reported that Toledo North will be down for about a week in January for maintenance and retooling. Perhaps the retooling is to accommodate diesel power trains or some other MY 2020 tweak.

No 2-door Sahara. Not available in US. I thought they had them in Europe or something?
Yep, foreign markets, mainly Europe. Don't know why none in US.
