Super pumped! Should be picking up the 392 in a couple weeks. After driving the TRX it wasn’t hard to talk my wife into getting one.
I’ve been off the forum for quite some time. I traded the Rubi in on a 19 Limited, then gave it to my wife and bought the TRX. Then she sold it for a few grand less than we paid new (it was paid off).So now.. soon… 392!
I’ve had several wranglers, but obviously not a 392. What do I need to know about this baby?

I can guarantee a smile on your face when you light it up for the first time, it just sounds sweet!
I have had Jeeps in the past from mild to wild and the only thing this Jeep is lacking is bigger brakes and they should have given it a 4:10 Ratio from the start. I guess they realized it and now offer the 4:56 gearing which I think would work out perfect with 35"s and handle 37`s with ease.


The comparison between my Raptor and the 392 is night and day, the Raptor has some mods including a tune and its just over 420 hp at the wheels but it takes a little time to get it there because of a little turbo lag and it has the stock BFG 315/70/17`s and 4:10 gears
The Raptor felt as if it was on rails but that's what you get with a long base vehicle and is also has a much wider footprint. Similar to the TRX in width hence the 3 clearance lights up front
Just my opinion
