    JL gross

    Ive been seeing these JLs driving around and i just cant help but shake my head. The top half looks like a range rover and the bottom a Hummer. I thought the JK was bad with their giant plastic fenders but the JL has managed to top that.
    I know ive done nothing but bash it, so Id like to know what are the benefits? What has been improved from the JK? Stonger steering box? Cuz id constantly hear how the shaft on the box would snap off. Did they move the evap canister? That seems to be the first thing to get broken when off road. Can you get bigger tires with out having to get wheel spacers?
    Lets hear the pro's but i dont mind some trash talking either, im not sensitive.

    Evap canister no longer an issue. More stock ground clearance, 33” tires , locker and disco switch moved to center stack, extra rocker switches for trail lights and such and the pen taster has been tweaked for better performance. Doors are lighter, tailgate stronger, soft top removal easier.... the rubi’s fender flares are 2 inches higher to accommodate bigger tires and dropping the windshield can be done in minutes. Overall shaved a couple hundred lbs and “improved “ fuel efficiency by .2 mpg. That’s all off the top of my balding head but not all inclusive.

    Back up camera Also it has the auto start/stop feature that shuts the engine off at a stop light to save fuel.

    If there is a single new car feature I would light the inventor on fire over is the auto start stop. When I want power I want it NOW!

    A Tuner should be able to correct that "feature"

    Not sure if it was a feature in final production, but there was a proximity sensor that would automatically throw the Jeep into neutral if it sensed an object. From what I understand, mega fail.

    Just yet even more electronic crap (like they could actually find a way to add even more electronic crap than the JK had!) to break in the middle of nowhere.

    Pretty sure there is a switch to turn that off.

    If only my JK had a pen taster. I have to manually stick them in my mouth to see what they taste like.

    steering all electrical i heard. wont be easy to upgrade i am sure. only the Rubi has d44s. the rest get a d30/d35< some new metric one far as i can see. the 2 door is 2" longer WB. Though you can still get a d44 in the base but it will be extra. Rubi axles are 2" wider. Cad is back in all.
