Engine and mechanical parts

Does anyone know for sure if the JT shares engine and mechanical parts with other more common models. We are thinking about bringing one down into the Caribbean where there are recent model Wranglers and parts available but a little wary about unique part and service availability.

Should be the same engine/transmission/transfer case.

Axles will probably be the same, though could be different width. They'll probably share wheels and tires.

Suspension bits will be similar, but not exactly the same. Lift kits will probably have different components.

Axles are beefier for towing purposes.

Rear suspension is different, it has more in common with Ram than Wrangler

From what I read, the axles are the Dana 44. So basically Rubicon axles in all models is what I expect. Though I could be wrong. They could be different.

I would believe they are running a copy of the 1/2 ton Ram suspension in the rear. And the front may not be exactly the same as a JL though it will probably be very similar with beefed up components.


One other thing to note for compatibility purposes. I would be surprised if there were major changes to anything electronic in the interior. I would expect everything in the dash and center console to be straight JL. No reason for them to have made any substantial changes. I would expect that even the front camera will make it into the 2020 JL.

The standard axles are front/rear "standard width" Dana 44's

The Max Tow package adds the Rubicon's "wide-track" (+1.5") front/rear Dana 44's

They claim the axles walls are 10mm thicker than Wrangler. I'm not sure if that refers for both sets of axles.

Upper/lower control arms & track bar are from Ram. I agree that I think the front is the same but beefier, I know they said it will come with bigger brakes than JL.
