I wish they would just offer the Mopar Beadlocks with 35's as an option. No need for the gear or the lift with the 392.

This is my current thinking. Do you own a 392 or have you driven one? I drove one for the first time the other night and at no point did I think that it needed more revs (it even had OEM M/T tires which are heavier than the KOs).

We should learn in a few days exactly what this package gets you on the 392. I got one that is supposed to ship at the end of the month and I'm probably just gonna throw some 315/70/17s on the stock wheels and be done with it. Mostly for aesthetics anyway since I do not offorad anything that the stock 33s couldn't easily handle.

Considering the modifications I see no reason why they couldn't have added it. None of it is four door specific. It's too bad.

I do love the 2.0 engine. I know folks like the 3.6 and it's tried and true, but the 2.0 is awesome.
Agreed, I just ordered with the ER package. Really wanted the 2.0 but..... I would have waited if I knew that it would be available on 2.0 in model 2022 but no telling. My first JL is a V6. I like it but wanted to try the 2.0 on this one. But I'm with you. I wish it was available on 2.0. Oh well.

I have not driven one as of yet. Not a fan of gold so stock rims are not going to work. Just talked to my Salesman and it's essentially and all or nothing package but he isn't sure what it has for the 392. Probably get aftermarket wheels with 37's and save the stocker wheels I guess. He also said if I added it would have to delete my current build for a new one and don't want to go back to the end of the line lol. If that even matters.

Probably for the best anyway. If I did get the Mopar Beadlocks they are a +12 offset. I will be upgrading brakes to the Baer setup. So that means I would need spacers. If I did a -12 offset aftermarket wheel would be enough room.

I would probably have opted for the Recon edition had I had the option. Didn’t though. If one isn’t going to do a lot of crawling don’t really know if the deep gears are needed. Especially with 35” tires. I am experimenting with 40” now. Amazing how easy the 392 turns them. Mine is not for crazy crawling. Just moderate trails ie. Golden Spike etc. Mostly for exploring actually. Lots of backroads in CO and UT.

@SSWIM. Did you install a lift to run those 40s on the 392? If so, how much? It looks perfect.

Maybe this has been posted. I couldn't find anything so..... I was wanting to see what the wheel/tire set up is going to look like. The pic they keep showing of the 392 in the press release isn't great. I mean it's a BA 392 but I'm wanting to see what the strait up Rubi looks like with XR package. I'm Mall Crawling with my $4k package baby. I need to see some street shots :rock: Did some digging and found pics from Mopar Insider from back in May when it was just a rumor. Ordered already but can't wait to see what it will look like when it debut at the Chicago Auto show in a few days. This will have to do.

Today at 9:30am central is the Jeep press conference. Hopefully, they give us more details about the XR package for the 392 (wheels bronze or black & actual ground clearance with lift, etc.)

2022 Wrangler Hopefully
Can't wait for them to formally announce the ExTremE Recon package for the 2 doors at the event today!

*wakes up from dream*

Can't wait for them to announce they canceled the 2 doors for 2022 to focus on a 6 door JLUU!

First thing tweeted about that I could find is the Jeep Compass. Blah blah blah.

Good catch, yes pictures are starting to come through. Wheels are essentially like the previous Mopar 17x8 wheels, just appear to be a slightly bronze color for the 392
