Yesterday, I found out what happens when water gets into the oil of a manual transmission. It’s bad. Very bad.
I spent all day Saturday in the hometown of Jeep—Toledo, Ohio— celebrating Jeep’s 75th anniversary at the the first ever Toledo Jeep Fest. For Jeep people, on that one day, Toledo became the greatest place on earth.
A very nice 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ was in my sights a few months ago. It was exactly what I wanted, and yet I let it slip away. Now I lose sleep thinking about it.
Early last month, two Jeeps fell down a 130 foot cliff and into the Crystal River near Aspen, Colorado, local news site Aspen Times reports. The Jeeps—now mangled wrecks—sat abandoned in the water for nearly a month, and are only now being extracted.
Last year in a Wired report, a duo of computer geeks showed the world they could hack into and immobilize a Jeep Cherokee with nothing more than a laptop, prompting Chrysler to later recall 1.4 million vehicles. Clearly these cars have some cybersecurity issues, because police say two intrepid hackers in Houston used…
First, I want to make it clear that the type of hack that the car-hacking superfriends Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek did this time is not remote. They had a laptop physically connected to the car via the OBD port. Let that temper your alarm as I tell you that they were able to get control of steering and braking,…
In an update to the tragic death of 27 year-old Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin after his 2015 Grand Cherokee rolled into him in his driveway on June 19th, The Associated Press reports that his parents are planning to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler.
The Jeep Wrangler’s seven-slatted grille is one of the most famous car-faces on the road. With a new design on the horizon, we’re all wondering how much Jeep is going to mess with it. New spy shots give us some insight.
Fiat Chrysler’s sales-reporting practices have put the company at the center of two fraud investigations amid allegations that it inflated car sales numbers for years. A new report from the company presents a supposedly improved counting method, which—after being applied to previous sales reports—reveals that Fiat…
Our guy David Tracy is hanging out with a wild, almost alien-looking custom Jeep Wrangler right now, and its owner wants to show him—and all of you—around it. The word on the street is that David’s going to get to take it for a spin, and he’ll be sharing the whole experience live on Facebook.
I just spent a few days at the headquarters of Omix-ADA, the world’s largest aftermarket Jeep parts supplier, and I nearly fainted.
You’ve screamed, hollered, yelled and begged and now here it is: the 2017 Jeep Wrangler pickup. Here’s the proof.
The coolest thing about Jeep’s World War II-esque 75th Wrangler Salute concept was the fact that, unlike any other concept vehicle I can think of, the Jeep was actually built on the assembly line alongside standard run-of-the-mill Wranglers. Jeep has released a time-lapse video showing the assembly process of the…
Our guy David Tracy is out touring a big Jeep show just outside of Atlanta, and you can tag along with him on Facebook Live if you’d like—complete with all of the Jeeps, and none of the unbearable southern heat that he’s sweating through in order to bring them to you all. If that’s not a good deal, what is?
June 15th, 2016 is considered Jeep’s 75th anniversary because on this day in 1941, the first official order was placed for the Willys-Overland military buggy we would come to recognize as a “jeep.” In honor of that, check out this amazing album of Wranglers and their forerunners!
Right now in Toledo, a badass World War Two-themed Wrangler is making its way down the assembly line as the Jeep brand celebrates its 75th anniversary today. Unfortunately, it’s just a concept, but that’s probably a good thing, because otherwise I’d be out about $35 grand.
We Jeep people are a strange breed. We park on snow mounds at the grocery store in the winter, don’t bother slowing for speed bumps, and generally turn into giddy little kids behind the wheels of our rigs. Here’s a Jeep Wrangler JK playing ballerina in a parking lot on some wooden seesaws.
