The Jeep Wrangler is a compact and mid-size (Wrangler Unlimited models) four-wheel drive off-road and sport utility vehicle (SUV), manufactured by American automaker Chrysler, under its Jeep marque – and currently in its third generation. The Wrangler is a direct descendant of the World War II Willys MB by way of the Willys civilian Jeeps (Jeep CJ) of the mid-1940s through 1980s, later produced by Kaiser-Jeep and by American Motors (AMC). Just like their predecessors, the Willys MB and the Jeep CJ, Wranglers continue to use a separate body and frame, rigid live axles both front and rear, a fold-flat windshield, and can be driven without doors. The Wrangler debuted in 1986 as a revision of the Jeep CJ-7, was revised in 1996, and completely redesigned in 2006. In addition to the nameplate Wrangler, each model received a designation corresponding to its generation: YJ (1986–1995), TJ (1997–2006), LJ's (2003–2006 Unlimited models) and JK (2007–present). Military versions of the Wrangler have carried the J8 designation.Jeep YJ models were manufactured between 1986 and 1992 at Brampton Assembly, and subsequently at the Toledo South Assembly plant.[1] In 2006, Wrangler production was moved to Toledo Complex.[2] The Wranglers were set apart from their predecessors by the angle of the grille. In all previous models, the grille was flat and even with the front fenders. The Wrangler was constructed with a grille which angled out toward the top, and then continued in a straight line from the midway point, toward the bottom. This decreased the hood length, while increasing the length of the fenders. In more recent models, this angle has been lowered more toward the bottom of the grille.

Sorry about the typo up top can't change it now supposed to be most wranglers not mist wranglers

The Brampton plant closed in 1992, in the article you posted the reference of moving wrangler production in 2006 was referring to the fact that up until then there was a Toledo north and a Toledo south. Toledo north was closed and Toledo south was rebuilt into the Toledo complex which became the sole producer of the new JK for the 2007 model year.
