A coworker talked to a higher-up at a Jeep dealer today who just attended a product meeting. He was told that the V6 diesel is a done deal for '15. Says it would be a smaller price bump than moving a...

Lesson learned (and one I'd like to learn):

If you've tinkered with the stock sub and/or the quadratec replacement, you know that they're dual voice coil (for those not deep into stereos, that...

All the way OFF, or down? My fastest to down is 8 mins - I thought that was pretty good. Of course, that includes rolling the back window up for safekeeping, and rolling the side windows for storage...

Just ordered my speakers (minus the sub, which I already have). Polks all the way around. I wanted to do components in the front, but the price was too good to pass up - found them all in...

Yes, Boston needs to be CRANKED!!

Wire: there's too much noise in a Jeep to notice the difference with upgraded wire. Not sure where you got/are getting the speakers, but Crutchfield includes...

I've got a sub to install, but would like to be able to remove it quickly if I'm going to be topless in a bad part of town or simply need the space. It's a 12" kicker in a box that's probably a...

That's what I was afraid of. Thanks! I was trying to squeeze in a baby and a yellow lab. Looks like it'll have to be JKU after all.

Can the JK be ordered with a split folding seat, and/or could it be retrofitted with one from a JKU?

It's the driver. In order of importance when driving in winter conditions:

1. Driver
2. Tires*
3. Vehicle

Driver is, by far, the most important. This included vehicle preparation - a good...

I absolutely love my TJ, 6-speed. Has AC, soft top, and the 4.0. It's on 31s and no lift. I drive it to work every day, 38 miles each way. Wouldn't trade it for anything. But a new baby will force me...

I hadn't thought of the weight of the 4-door vs. the 2-door - the 3.8 JK I drove and couldn't deal with was actually a 2-door. To think a 4-door would be even worse - yikes!

But remember - I...

Depends on the snow and the situation. Powder on an unplowed road? 4 Hi. Wet heavy snow in the yard? Maybe 4 Low, particularly if it feels like the drivetrain is working hard to keep those wheels...

I had a friend fall while ice skating and break his ankle...so that's not smart either.

Yes, it can happen. In a situation like the one pictured, it's highly unlikely.

I would do it in a HEARTBEAT! I don't even have the JKU yet (soon), but would KILL to be able to keep my TJ and have the wife in a JKU. Me in a JK and her in a JKU would be a close 2nd.

May I have...

Advantage: stock 3.6 or upgraded 3.8

I'm leaning heavily toward a new JKU to replace my TJ (4-month-old+80lb lab won't fit in a TJ, sadly). However, I've got a pretty good connection to get a heck of a deal on an older JKU. I've driven...

He said "equally equipped" - take the Sport and add the options. Basically a package discount. And AC is standard on the JKU. Has been for a while. But for someone who doesn't want ALL of the options...

That's me, exactly. I'd probably just go Rubi, but I don't want the 4.10s, and I don't think auto Jeeps (or most other motor vehicles) should exist. Since Chrysler won't build a Rubi with 3.73s and a...

And gears, and trac loc, and connectivity. I did the math. *IF* these are options one is looking for in a JKU, it makes a little more sense to buy the Willys. But if you don't want even one of those...
