Shh, no you can't. That's just... black mud splatters.
That’s very good news, indeed.
Boy, first we find out SelecTrac is the real deal; now that Sahara can handle 35” tire right out of the box.
Must be Christmas time...!
Who is the maker for the transmissions, both 6 and 8 speed.
850RE (ZF 8HP50) is made under ZF license by FCA at Kokomo Transmission Plant (Indiana, U.S.A.).
It is used the standard gear ratio set
4.714 3.143 2.106 1.667 1.285 1.000 0.839 0.667 3.300
but there is an alternative gears set not used, at lest for now, in Jeep Wrangler JL.
5.000 3.200 2.143 1.720 1.314 1.000 0.822 0.640 3.456
ZF 8HP75, that will be used with 3.0 diesel engine, will be sourced from ???
The 6 speed manual, that is a modified version of another transmission, could be AISIN, but don't know if true.
See, if FCA did launches like this every year, there would be a lot less bickering going on.
I know I would be more willing to put up with crummy customer service, and even my brother’s Renegade issues, if I got my candy.
Has anyone seen anything that states that next years diesel will have the Dana 35?
Here is today's JL Los Angeles press presentation:
I love hearing "torque management" 4WD systems. No electronic gimmicks; no virtual systems. These are the real deal.
Well also the ones in other models use clutch packs, so is hardware solution.
The electronic part is for torque management.
What in certain circunstances, with engines with lower torque, is the "brake lock differential" feature that have a negative effect (also in Wrangler).
The Dana 44 of Rubicons are described in FCA press kit, that, as FCA tradition are a little bit confusing and with some contradictions, as
"... New heavy-duty Dana 44 front and rear axles standard on Rubicon models ..."
Dana 44 heavy-duty solid front
Dana 44 (220mm) heavy-duty solid rear
@suzq044 & @DarkSky better start photoshopping JT with the abundance of JL pics
The cover Wranglers at the LA Auto Show were Mopar equipt concepts...
Lots of this Mopar goodies were hinted on the Trailcat Concept from Moab.

Question: is the white one on the stand a retrofitted JK, or did they not have another set of JL tail lights for it, or are those going to be mopar aftermarket parts? Or do the 2 doors have a different tail light assembly? e.O
Honestly, I think the latest renderings are pretty damn close, but I'll play with it..
Bob S. once posted that management came down hard on him when he designed an aspect of the Ram BR suspension to make it easier to change for the aftermarket. He repeatedly pointed out that manufacturer's do not generally take into consideration what people do to their vehicles after purchase. The Wrangler is somewhat of an exception but cost will always be a consideration and money was saved by not equipping every Wrangler with a D44.
Its a JL... every on it is a Mopar accessory including the narrower fenders.
