Its true. The engine is behind the front axle which makes our Jeeps a mid engine design. You can win bets in bars with that one :)

I think a better bet would be whats more american the Toyota Camry or the Wrangler... Camry has more american made parts than the wrangler and both made in America

I think you are on to something here. With the appropriate level of fact- free discussion, you may have found a substitute for "auto vs. manual" threads.

Hmmm, I think you’re right,…and...if one looks at the Wrangler from the back then the rear axle is in front of the engine…and if one looks from the side then the axle and engine are side by side…so,...

Perhaps this thread just needs some verbal ejaculation from strongly opinionated people who have no pertinent knowledge or relevant experience regarding the topic coupled with poor social or communication skills to furiously post hyperbole and insult until the thread reaches epic proportions.
That would be great; I love those threads!

BTW, which oil is best for the mid-engined Wrangler conventional or synthetic?

Mid engine 4x4 should only run mobile synthetic 20w50. Change it every 300 miles or you are an idiot. Also, make sure to spray fluid film on it weekly, or the entire vehicle will rust completely away before the warranty expires.

But when you swap in a hemi it becomes a front engine vehicle by definition. ��

If you are using synthetic 20w50, you can stretch those intervals to at least 500 miles. You obviously haven't done enough research on this forum. Oh well. Your Jeep, your money. As long as you are happy. :D

Wait, there's a front axle ? Is that only on the rubicon ?
Yes, only on the Rubicon. But on the Rubicon you can push a button and leave the axle at home, it's not needed if you are going to jump curbs at the mall.

Lots of good information on this thread

Suprised no one has mentioned the Flux capacitor and what happens when you reach 88 mph

That's because no one has attained 88 mph in a Wrangler and lived to tell about it.

Or maybe it's because they did but posted their experience on the forum afterwards but back in 2009 where they landed and no one took them seriously so the thread has lied buried all these years; perhaps a search and resurrection in in order.

Well, I had some free time so I went to a reliable internet source (oxymoron?). We have two configurations.
1. FMR. front mid engine, rear wheel drive
2. FMF. front mid engine, front wheel drive

So my pointless question of the day is: what is our configuration while in 4WD?? Should we create a new acronym for ourselves?

Yes I know, I should find something more constructive to do with my life. I'm going to go rotate my tires to atone for this post.

Another neat fact is that the term "front mid engine" is a marketing scheme to fool idiots into thinking they're buying a mid engine vehicle because most people associate mid engine vehicles with fancy sports cars that are superior to plain old front engine cars. If the engine is in front of the passenger compartment it's a front engine design.
