PHOTOS: Jeep’s entire line of redesigned JL Wranglers

Jeep has so far teased us with views of specific models of the new JL Wrangler, but the folks over at nonetheless managed to snag photos of every trim level for the new icon.

Check out the link here to view the photos.


So close, but …

It’s one of those good news/bad news kind of things. I finally got those rock sliders I was after, a set of frame-mounted Poison Spyder Customs Ricochet Rockers.

Unfortunately, though, they came at a time things really were picking up at work. So, they’ve been sitting in my living room since then, taunting me. And, now that things are starting to calm down, we’re picking up the pieces in a flooded house, so all my free time is occupied by things other than the Jeep.

I’ll get them on eventually, of course. In the meantime, they’re moving to the garage, where I don’t have to stare at them every day.

2018 JL interior: More refinement, less Jeep?

Since Halloween, the marketing folks at Jeep have been steadily increasing the flow of unmasked images of the redesigned 2018 JL Wrangler.

First came a trio of exterior images that showed us, among other things, that the JL will have a forward-extending roll bar up front. Now, they’ve followed suit with a pair of images featuring an interior packed with comfort and refinement. So different is this new JL interior, one might be forgiven for thinking it more at home in a Toyota than a Jeep.

Reaction among the Jeep faithful to both sets of images continues to be mixed, with a slight edge to those who enjoy the new Jeep’s additional creature comforts and electronic wizardry.

So, what say you? Is it still a Jeep with all these soft surfaces, or is Jeep bidding farewell to its heritage? Weigh in with a comment below.

Our promise of snow evaporated overnight; the weather stayed north of us. So, all we get is a cold snap.

Last winter was unusually warm, producing below-average snowfall and at least one really annoyed family.

Hopefully, this year is better!
