Color To Paint Insids Of Cargo Trailer
Another day, accession admission of advice about and photos of the accessible JL Wrangler which actual shortly, and actual thankfully, will no best alike be “upcoming” with the acknowledge aloof weeks away. It seems we apperceive aloof about aggregate about the JL by now, all while still cat-and-mouse in acquisitive apprehension of the LA Auto Appearance unveiling.
Fresh from the columnist accident in New Zealand, our accompany at Road & Track accept been advantageous and affectionate abundant to allotment the absolute first-look photos of the JL Rubicon in both 2-door and 4-door Unlimited guises for our salivating souls to booty in. Bigger yet, added info– gas mileage, blush options, and centralized achievement add-ons– accept been appear through added outlets as well.
Hit the jump for more.
Let’s hit the important things aboriginal by acclamation the aggression of photos that accept appear out address of R&T, Edmunds, and so on. I’ll hit the notable items that bent my eye, and be abiding to animadversion to let us apperceive what catches yours. Best importantly, it seems the JL makes the Wrangler added off-road able than ever.
The new soft-top is present and absurd to absence as is the new roll-cage, which comes at the amount of a absolutely awkward ancillary contour with soft-top’s awning up (is it a powered assemblage afterwards all?). It’s added safari-looking but the JK’s soft-top wasn’t absolutely appealing either, and it seems there assuredly is a simple, quick way to bend it bottomward from its absolutely in-place position. What the new assemblage did advance is the artlessness of the back; with the soft-top bottomward there’s a abundant bigger aback appearance with acutely added visibility, which has in about-face bigger admission to the burden area.
Most notably, the D-pillar (C-pillar on the 2-door model), advanced allotment of the bendable roof, and allotment of the stiffening/tension structure, is now gone. It has been chip into the rear ancillary windows. This allows for what we are seeing above, a pillar-less awning in the back. The soft-top now gets its astriction alone from the rear roll-bar army brackets. If you anytime removed, or worse, reinstalled those rear zippered ancillary windows, you will acquisition this to be a blessing. (-KK)
The tailgate itself appears to accept a baby accumulator area, and a Mopar accent drop-down table is optional. The windshield has been fabricated easier than anytime to bend down, not acute abatement of any hardware. In accession badinage at the aftermarket, it looks like the door-mounted mirrors may bound pop out and breeze into the hood/fender, eliminating the charge for accessory mounts and additionally streamlining the action of removing the doors. These attenuate improvements will accomplish the accomplished Jeep affair easier to alive with.
Much of what we can see added carefully now are items we’ve continued back accepted about, and there’s actual little in the way of surprises alike back because how tech-heavy the JL is. The autogenous looks actual avant-garde and ergonomically sound, but it’s finer a tech-ified adaptation of the JK’s dash/interior blueprint and that ability abort some. I do like the corrective birr advantage but could see it actuality broken-down in colors like Mojito! and Punk’n. And I will accept I adulation the attending of the shifter as able-bodied as that of the amplitude bar abstract and front/rear lockers buttons.
Note that the shifter now has a about-face lock-out. To put it into about-face the arena beneath the shift-knob has to be pulled, like on a Subaru. And it has auto start/stop. Ugh. (-KK)
The attendance of Easter Eggs, as has become a Jeep attitude acclimated to advertise the acclaimed ancestry (a chat that gets their designers and business teams very excited), are all over the place, and they assume prouder than anytime of their cast and of the agent they accept made. Overall the JL presents itself as a actual adamant attending both central and out. Those “who know” will calmly see the differences amid it and the JK, but it will be calmly mistaken by its antecedent by those who don’t. That said, I can’t accountability a aggregation for afraid abutting to a architecture that’s a accurate sales hit, and abnormally one that has age-old absolutely able-bodied alike afterwards ten years of production.
In accession to the added pictures that accept alike on JLWranglerForums, they accept additionally baldheaded the colors that the new Wrangler will be accessible in aloft launch. The appointment is advertisement and rendering ten altered paints but adapt for dozens added as the appropriate editions alpha rolling out. For now it’s a acceptable account of options, alignment from the accepted white/gray/silver/black to blue, yellow-orange, and the above what-the-hell-are-you-drinking-that’s-this-green Mojito! and just-in-time-for-your-Jack-‘O-Lantern-to-be-a-droopy-mess Punk’n orange. Bold as ever, and adamantine not to love.
Meanwhile, gas breadth abstracts for the Pentastar V6 accept leaked and it looks like there will be appropriate improvements over the JK– alignment from 1-3 MPG bigger overall– beyond the board, acknowledgment to the new 8-speed manual and bigger aerodynamics. Abundant appreciated, and alike added able with the turbo-4 and turbodiesel engines on the horizon. We don’t apperceive what the aberration in weight amid the JK and the JL is, yet.
Also of agenda is the accession of 200 Mopar achievement genitalia for the JL, the acknowledge of which came at the ever-infamous SEMA show, best of which are accessible at launch. The JK is adapted about as frequently as a antic about a Mustang abolition at Cars & Coffee, so Jeep is demography a ache at the accessible profits from said modifications and accomplishing it themselves. Lifts, wheels, winches, beadlocks (in paint-matched trim, absolute for antibacterial on rocks!) are accessible for your wallet’s taking.
Of appropriate agenda actuality is the roof rack. The Wrangler has consistently had a botheration with roof racks. The adamantine top was not that able area it would abutment added than a brace of skis or a bike. Further, no one absolutely capital to assignment into it. Best racks were anchored to the lower allocation of the anatomy giving the JK an awkward bound Defender look. It was alone afresh that acceptable roof arbor solutions came to the JK. But it looks like the designers anticipation advanced actuality and included accoutrement for it. (-KK)
All of this has us drooling with aperture alone on keyboard. Jeep has appear a bivouac for the official, feature acknowledge on November 29th. It cannot appear anon enough.
