I know not exactly the point of the question on this thread, but curious if anyone has leased one and what the residual and MF were. More a curiosity than what I’d do.

Does anyone who has the JLU 392 with the matching color dual door group know if the half-doors have a vin specific sticker or vin marking of any kind on the inside door trim of the half-doors? I am curious if there are differences in getting the painted half-doors at the time of placing the JLU 392 order versus just ordering them later through Mopar? Are they only available painted by ordering them with the JLU 392 or are they only available later from Mopar in black primer unpainted?

Can anyone provide a link to the 392 Rubicon Owners Manual? I'd like to read up on the new (unique) features of the 392... paddle shifters, etc.

This video might have answers to some of the questions you are asking regarding availability of half doors after the fact. Of course the date on this vid is Mar 23 so things may have changed.

Thanks... I was kinda hoping for something I could download and put on my phone. I already downloaded the standard Wrangler Owners Manual months ago... but that was before I considered the extra goodies... like controlling the speed with paddles off road and any other unique "things" specific to the 392. I just figured there had to be a new edition printed (or downloadable) for the owners. So maybe I should have asked this first... did the new 392 owners receive an owners manual that is specific to the 392? Or are they still generic?

Is this what you are looking for?

PG14 4WD High Auto, am I reading that incorrectly or does it state that the power is directed towards the front wheels? I thought the transfer was a 30/70-Rear split.

Yes, that’s right. I’ve read the 30/70, f/r, too, in normal operation. Then Part time 4wd is effectively a center diff lock, splitting power 50/50, f/r - similar to the old Land Rover Defenders or G wagons.

p6 of the 392 supplement really spells out some detailed break-in guidance. I'd be all the more frustrated if a dealer was making YouTube videos with my Jeep showcasing the speed & power well within the break-in period.

From the OM:
Engine break in occurs mainly during the first 500 miles (805 km) and continues through the first oil change interval.
It is recommended for the operator to observe the following driving behaviors during the new vehicle break-in period:
0 to 100 miles (0 to 161 km):
  •  Do not allow the engine to operate at idle for an extended period of time.
  •  Press the accelerator pedal slowly and not more than halfway to avoid rapid acceleration.
  •  Avoid aggressive braking.
  •  Drive with the engine speed below
    3,500 RPM.
  •  Maintain vehicle speed below 55 mph (88 km/h) and observe local speed limits.
100 to 300 miles (161 to 483 km):
 Press the accelerator pedal slowly and not more than halfway to avoid rapid accelera- tion in lower gears (FIRST to THIRD gears).
 Avoid aggressive braking.
 Drive with the engine speed below
5,000 RPM.
 Maintain vehicle speed below 70 mph (112 km/h) and observe local speed limits.
300 to 500 miles (483 to 805 km):
  •  Exercise the full engine RPM range, shifting manually (paddles or gear shift) at higher RPM when possible.
  •  Do not perform sustained operation with the accelerator pedal at wide open throttle.
  •  Maintain vehicle speed below 85 mph (136 km/h) and observe local speed limits.
    For the first 1,500 miles (2,414 km):
     Avoid high engine and driveline loading.
NOTE:
Check engine oil with every refueling and add if necessary. Oil and fuel consumption may be higher through the first oil change interval. Running the engine with an oil level below the add mark can cause severe engine damage.

Looking forward to getting close to the 5k rpm range with Mopar’s permission of course!
I’m at about 360 miles now.

Anyone feel it's just too much power for them and want to swap drivetrains with a 3.6 Rubi 2-door?

Well, if ya never ask... :) But in all seriousness, a big congrats to all 392 owners! Enjoy!!

I'm curious if the floor is the same as the JLUs. Has anyone swapped their Weathertech or Quadratec floor mats into the 392? If so, is it an exact fit? Weathertechs website lists the 4xe separately from the regular JLU, so not sure if the 392 will be any different.

I believe the reason it’s different is the batteries beneath the rear seat on the 4xe.
