On such a gloriously sunny day as this, I just had to dart home during lunch to convert the Jeep to a much happier open-air mode. It’s just too nice to keep the top all buttoned up!
Motor Trend is reporting Jeep’s debut of the Yuntu Concept at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. Yutu, loosely translated as “cloud map”, is a seven-seat, plug-in hybrid SUV targeted at China’s growing SUV market. There are no current plans to bring it to the U.S.

Superwinch unveiled its new premium EXP winch models at SEMA last year, but in all honesty, I missed it. That’s a tragedy, too, because the interwebs are mum on much detail (including pricing, which I’m betting hasn’t been set, though I’d expect a Warn Zeon-level cost) about this cool new winch. Superwinch, though, recently shared a video by FourWheeler on their Facebook page highlighting it’s ground-breaking features. Check it out!
To the Jeeper searching our site to learn whether or not AEV’s 3.5-inch lift maintains the factory nose-down take, the answer is yes. All AEV lifts maintain the rake. A few Jeeps have unique-enough weight distribution that they sit nearly level post-lift, but AEV does intend to keep the nose-down stance.
Hope this helps! Post up a comment and let us know what lift you end up going with. Or, check out @SmokeyTheJeep on Instagram, and tag us in a pic of your ride.
