Sell the Jeep and buy a Bronco. I hear that the Jeep crowd is going over there as it has IFS.
I recently pulled a 5 x 8' U-Haul trailer loaded up to about 1,500 lbs with my 2021 JLU 2.0T for about 875 miles; I could barely tell the trailer was there. A light utility trailer would be great behind a JLU.Also, trailers do wonders . ..
I was the guy that always insisted on the 8ft truck bed, to put all my stuff in.. Then one day, I saw the light ... a Trailer that you pull with your truck / wagoneer / JL / etc ..
Tacos have got to be the most boring vehicle you can buy. Horrible seats and seating position, thin paint, lousy engine and transmission, older than dirt (but not older than a 4Runner), can’t really go above 33s, etc.Also sure you could get a taco or wtvever, but the JTR has lockers, solid axles, and all that good stuff. It also resembles a Jeep and can go topless/doorless.
Exactly this. the hitch rack is great. Went from a 1500 to the JL and was a little concerned. i use a hitch extender to buy a little clearance past the spare. You can use it when hauling extra gear too. NO problem hauling a whitetail. Use a tarp if your worried about road debris.My deer go on a hitch rack. Much cheaper than a new vehicle.
Keep the JLUR. When you need to do truck things, do what I do, strap a utility trailer to it (buy one or rent as needed).About a month ago, my wife's vehicle needed to be replaced. I asked her what she wanted and all she told me was a 4 door white wrangler. What did this guy do? ... Well, I went out and bought her a 2022 JLUR Diesel. After about a month of driving, she decided she didn't like it and it was too small for her. Needless to say, I ended up getting rid of my truck and getting her a new Wagoneer. Fast forward to now, and I find myself missing the aspects of a truck. Been a jeep guy all my life and I'm sitting on the fence about keeping this Wrangler or trading it in on a Gladiator.
I'm a bit of a country boy so truck beds are nice to have, but I do a lot of hunting too. Not going to throw a whitetail in the back of a Wrangler.
Have any of you been on the fence between the JL and the JT? What pushed you one way or another?
