Read on!
JEEP WRANGLER JL BODY AND EXTERIOR
The new Jeep Wrangler JL features some sturdy aluminum panels, which sparked a lot of arguments among the off-road community, as some are in support of the idea while others detest it. People that were not familiar with aluminum body parts before now definitely took some convincing, but after the introduction of the new Wrangler JL, they now understand the peculiarity of aluminum and its components. Some top automotive brands like Ford have already set the precedence on their aluminum-bodied F-150 pickup trucks. Here at Morris 4x4 Center, we already sell aluminum body parts for Jeeps (Aqualu), so for some long time Jeepers, it's business as usual.
Modern aluminum is lightweight, but strong, and comes in handy for any type of upgrade and off-road situation. Just imagine how easy it might be to remove a lightweight aluminum factory door!
The new Jeep-Wrangler JL comes with an aluminum body and doors at the forefront to save weight and also guarantee better fuel mileage. Similarly, the iconic Jeep JL Wrangler front grille has been redesigned, as well as the hood shape, which is now a bit longer. Also, the new JL comes with more than one hood design depending on the options ordered with the Jeep. The Jeep's grille now has a more pronounced "bend" to it, which is quite different from the previous Wrangler models. Another notable feature of the new Wrangler JL is the front fender flares with bright LED turn signal lights that are incorporated into the fenders themselves.
Unlike the previous models, the new JL Wrangler no longer has a front windshield that folds down. This is probably because many JK owners never really find the option to drop their windshields (an option available since the first Jeeps in the 1940s) that useful. The new windshield frame is not foldable and will remain in a fixed position.
JEEP WRANGLER JL AXLES AND SUSPENSION
There were some rumors about Jeep going to an independent suspension, and there were plenty of protests against it. It seems that Jeep heard the voices loud and clear, and has retained the traditional solid axles, front, and rear.
Jeep has updated the Wrangler JL axles, using a 12 bolt pattern, but with lighter (and possibly smaller) housings. These axles are available as some type of Dana 30 front and Dana 44 rear that's been around for decades, albeit with just a few upgrades to guarantee better fuel mileage.
JEEP WRANGLER JL ENGINE OPTIONS
When it comes to engine options, the JL Wranglers continue to use the 3.6L Pentastar engine, which in the past has had around 285 hp/260 lb. of torque. However, there is a new option of a 3.0L Diesel available for any interested buyer.
Also, there is an option of Turbo 300 hp 4-cylinder, aptly named "Hurricane." We also believe this will serve as a solid foundation for a Hybrid engine, which we hope will become a reality in the near future.
JEEP WRANGLER JL TRANSMISSION OPTIONS
While an automatic transmission remains a popular option, you can opt for a six-speed manual transmission as well. The automatic transmission comes as an 8-speed version designed by ZF Friedrichshafen in Germany. The new transmission really comes in handy in of getting every ounce of fuel mileage out of the new JL Wrangler.
JEEP WRANGLER JL SOFT AND HARD TOP OPTIONS
While all Jeep soft tops are similar, Jeep has taken a hard look at soft tops and come up with new alternatives for the JL Wrangler. Some rumors say there may even be a power soft top. Some say it may no longer use traditional zippers but might have more removable panels than in the past. For the hardtop options, there are stories of a possible "sunroof" made from glass, or at least something clear. This would let light in, but there are no details regarding whether it will fold back or be a removable panel.
One determining factor is that the new JL Wrangler may no longer use Sport Bars. In this case, the hardtop becomes an important part of the roof, and there are a significant amount of laws and engineering involved. Traditionally, the roof on a vehicle has to support the weight of the body if the vehicle is overturned. Ultimately, we'll have to see how Jeep handles these issues and challenges.
JEEP WRANGLER JL INTERIOR UPGRADES AND CHANGES
When it comes to the interior, there aren't many changes, because you're always working around the driver. There is a steering wheel, two seats, a console, a dash, etc. There is also a new backup camera that is made in compliance with the new laws for carmakers. With modern technology changing almost daily, we expect them to have the latest in Uconnect and dashboard information systems as well. With a new body, hood, and doors, newer Jeep owners might get some more leg and shoulder room in the 2018 JL Wrangler.
There's much anticipation for the 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler. Of course, we will keep you updated as we get close to the order and production dates. If any new parts become available, and we expect there will be loads of them, you can find them right here at Morris 4x4 Center.
NEW WRANGLER JL COLOR OPTIONS
We are learning more about the JL Wrangler as the days pass, and today, we get to discuss the color options it comes in when ordering one from the factory. JL Wrangler Forums recently got their hands on a full list of paint options. A total of five new clear-coat paint options will be available, four of them being brand new to the FCA.
The new JL Colors are:
- Punk'n Metallic
- Ocean Blue Metallic
These new colors will be joining the fan favorites:
- Billet Silver Metallic
- Firecracker Red
- Granite Crystal Metallic
- Bright White
Which of the new colors is your favorite?
THE NEW WRANGLER JL SPORT BUMPER
The new JL Wrangler Sport bumper is causing quite a stir, with Jeep loyalists on the JL Wrangler forum giving mixed feedback. At first, a lot of forum participants thought that the Sport Bumper seen in the latest images was the European model. JL Wrangler Forums admin has since confirmed that the model in question was, in fact, the US version.
The new bumpers comes with "Close-out-covers," which connect the bumper to the fender. People who do not like the look of the close-out-covers will be able to remove them.
DOES ACTIVE NOISE CONTROL REALLY WORK?
In a word, YES, the active noise control works well. One of the best updates to the new JL Wrangler is the fact that it employs new technology that will cancel out a lot of the noise that drivers experience in the cab. Grand Cherokee Summits already have something similar, but the noise control has kicked its game up a notch. Not only does the active noise control offset unwanted environmental noise, but in some models, it will also counteract noise made from the exhaust and engine, too.
ACTIVE NOISE CONTROL FOR JEEP JL: 101
Without going into too much of the science of the active noise cancellation technology, the gist of the tech is that it uses your audio system and at least four or more microphones located throughout the cabin. The technology uses opposite wave sounds, which "crash" into the ambient noise and neutralize the sounds. Even at highway speeds, the ride is quieter, thanks to this tech.
The Active Noise Control (ANC) module works in tandem with the RPM information that is generated by the powertrain control module. Four or more simultaneous signals are generated based on this information, which cancels out most types of noise. Now, it's not like you will be sitting in a cone of silence, but you will have an overall quieter ride than you've had in previous generations of Jeeps. The ANC draws its power from the battery, and it also supplies your loudspeaker power. You won't hear the noise-canceling happening; there's no loud hum or audible sound of noise while it's canceling the outside noise. As a secondary benefit, you will enjoy more fuel-efficiency too, since the engine calibrations that are needed to run the ANC also give more accurate feedback to the engine. Plus, the engineers didn't have to install heavy acoustic-dampening material that adds to the overall weight of the Jeep.
WHICH JEEPS HAVE ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION?
Not all Jeep models have the ANC included as standard, but the 2015-2019 Grand Cherokee Summit and SRT models do come with this feature installed as part of the standard package. This is a stand-alone module on SRT vehicles that have the Alpine audio system. It is located behind the right rear trim panel. If your Jeep is using the Harman Kardon audio system, then it is located behind the left trim panel. Most of the microphones are located in the headliner. While some believe that the active noise control feature requires that the radio system be turned on in order for it to be activated, this is a myth that we're happy to dispel. The system operates whenever the Jeep is running. Anecdotally, there have been reports that Jeep owners have been able to remove their doors and windows, leaving only the soft top on, and are able to carry on a conversation, even while driving 75 mph on the highway. If it already comes standard on your Jeep, you might as we'll enjoy. For those who would like to include it or mod out their Jeeps with their own ANC, that can be done too.
THE NEW JEEP JL SAHARA: ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES
The new 2018 Wrangler JL is wowing Jeep fans with its self-closing doors, additional head space, and cool new features included in its basic package. If you love the look of Jeeps, then you are going to love the JL, as it brings back the structure and character of the American icon, the Willys. Jeep owners wouldn't be surprised that Jeeps have consistently been listed as one of the top American-made vehicles year after year. The new Wrangler JL, formally introduced in LA a few months ago, sure ticks all the boxes and meet the expectations of every Jeep Wrangler enthusiast.
THE JL SAHARA OFFERS JEEP DRIVERS MORE SPACE
The JL Wrangler will make instant fans of large and tall Jeep owners, offering 31.7 more cubic feet with the rear seats upright. With the rear seats down, you get nearly 73 cubic feet, which is almost 2 more cubic feet of space than the JK. Just wait…there's more. The distance between the roll bars was also increased to 43.5", the front passenger seat (pulled forward) and measured to the tailgate is 74", and the rear back seat bench depth is 32.5".
UPGRADED FUEL EFFICIENCY AND CAPABILITIES
Still coming as standard are the solid Dana 44 axles, and extremely durable body-on-frame construction, the Sahara also provides an 84:1 crawl ratio (with 33 inch BFG KO2 tires). That means it is the most capable Wrangler to be produced thus far. The Sahara comes as an 8-speed automatic, or as a 2.0L turbo (eTorque), and all offer improved aerodynamics. The Sport version of the Sahara comes as a 6-Speed manual. Both types come with push-start ignitions, eight-speaker audio systems, touch screens, and tough as nails 4WD.
SELF-CLOSING DOORS ON THE JL SAHARA
Look on any forum, and Jeep owners are raving about the self-closing doors on the JL. Don't be fooled though. The self-closing doors aren't part of some hydraulic switch or motorized at all. That's the beauty of the design. These doors were engineered to close themselves after they are opened past a certain point (called the halfway checkpoint). This is not just a front door feature but is also a feature that all of the doors enjoy. Other bells and whistles include an adjustable height third brake light, back up cameras, noise-canceling technology, and decisive traction control.
TECH COMPONENTS FOR THE NEW JL SAHARA
On top of the usual tech that comes with even the most basic of Jeeps, the Sahara includes more bells and whistles in the tech department than all the previous models. Regardless of the package, they come with integration with smartphones, touchscreen radio with hands-free capabilities, dual-zone temp controls, an auxiliary power outlet, as well as 75 safety and security features.
HOW TO USE FOLDING WINDSHIELDS ON YOUR JL WRANGLER
Being able to drop your windshield has long been an advantage that Jeep has over most other types of vehicles. Originally, this was utilitarian, but when Jeeps were released into the commercial wilds, they brought this feature with them. Unfortunately, getting them down and back up again took a platoon to accomplish, so most owners just opted to leave the windshield up. For many years, Jeep engineers thought that the driving population didn't care for folding the windshield down. This was just because most owners found it to be so difficult it wasn't worth the effort. Luckily, Jeep engineers have gotten the message, and windshield folding has become MUCH easier with the newer models. Granted, you wouldn't want to drop the windshield for city driving, but once off-road, the advantages of having the windshield folded down or completely off become apparent.
Most videos will make folding windshields look simple and easy, but then when you go to make it happen, you realize that nothing is that easy. That is until now. Once the Jeep manufacturers realized that being able to remove or fold down the windshield was a ‘thing' with owners, it was added back in and made easier to remove (without having to purchase a completely new set of tools to do it).
JEEP WRANGLER JL OPTIONS
Jeep owners like to have options, and the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL comes with many new and retooled options. The redesigned windshield on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL brings back the open-air feeling that everyone knows and loves about the Jeep experience. Folding windshields are not a new idea for Jeep, but creating one that was actually usable and workable, is. This new redesign allows you to fold the windshield by simply removing 4 bolts (as opposed to the 28 required in the old design). Here's a down and dirty crash course on how to fold the windshield in 10 minutes or less.
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE YOUR JEEP JL WINDSHIELD:
- 15mm socket
- #40 Torx bit
- Cinch strap
- Step One: Take off the top of the Jeep (hard top or soft top).
- Step Two: Take the protective caps off of the hex bolts located on the windshield wiper.
- Step Three: Remove the hex bolts (two of them) using the 15 mm socket. Then take the windshield wipers off.
- Step Four: Put both of the sun visors down. Then using a Torx bit, take out the 8 screws located on the inside of the windshield (both passenger side and driver's side). Always put screws and bolts somewhere safe where you can find them later.
- Step Five: Gently lower the windshield until it rests against the loop bumpers on the hood.
