Why not? The 2017 Jeep JL Wrangler is likely going to IFS according to inside sources.

This vehicle would be great competition...maybe Wranglers would stop increasing in price 3% annually.

Track bar first thing to check, then control arm bushings. Those bushings are notorious for causing the DW. Third would be steering links and steering box.

The Sahara has 18" wheels and the Sport has 17" wheels, but the difference is made up in the tires. So there is no ground clearance difference between the two. The Sahara has a few extra items...

I'm going to have to disagree about the Willys Wheeler package being the best bargain. That's a $4,000 package and the only differences of any value are the MT tires and 3.73 axle ratio. Everything...

I have newly found respect for the Cooper ST Maxx. They have 3 ply sidewalls and are very lightweight. The 245/75-16 (an optional stock JK size) only weighs 44 lbs. They are quiet and bite hard...

With the 6 speed the 3.73s made 6th usable. Either gear ratio is fine on stock tires. For the price they get for the upgrade I'd go 3.21s now days.

Meaning no sooner than you take off you have to change gears. It's overkill and thats with 33" tires.

3.73s and 6-speed you can use 6th more often but 1st sucks. With 3.21s 1st is more usable...

When I got my '12 new the 3.73 upgrade was cheap. Now it's $500?? Insane! I'd think twice now. First gear is a PITA with the 6-speed and 3.73s.

For what it's worth, my 2014 Challenger with the 3.6L did a best time of 6.3 seconds. So expecting 6.6 out of a Wrangler shaped like a brick with taller tires is going to be a tough bet.

Well, since you said daily driver I'd go Kelly. They will be quieter, better in rain/snow, and will wear better on the pavement while still looking very aggressive.
