...and the difference between JK and JL Wrangler is like the difference between cheeseburger and a rib-eye steak
MotorTrend clearly likes the JL.

this sort of cross ties with the motor trend review of the jeeps in new zealand, where they didn't like the clutch. but as iread it the guy clearly admits he is a millennial. So maybe not so experienced on a manul.

Yeah, Sofyan does some of the best videos around at Redline. Very no nonsense. He loved it. And he didn't experience any of the excessive wind noise that some owners here seem to be experiencing with the hard top.

Nice review by Redline. It's amazing how fast the price goes up with the auto trans and hard top. My optioned out rubi build is only a couple grand more than his sport s tester when leaving out those options and sticking with the manual + soft top.

This is the most comprehensive soft top taking off and putting on video I've seen so far...

Nice to see a no-nonsense (albeit sans-offroad) review of a well equipped non-Rubi 2-door. Thanks for posting!
I agree. I'm just stoked to see 2 Door Sport reviews. Previously, it seemed like they were all 4 Door Rubicons or Saharas.
