The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is easily the most important vehicle to come out this year. (It’s debatable whether the Tesla Model 3 is really “out” yet.) An American icon is being replaced, and fans have been nervous. Is the new Wrangler still a serious off-roader worth worshipping, or has it been watered down like almost…
Driving around topless with no doors and the windshield folded down is a pastime that connects Jeep Wrangler owners with those who putted around in the very first civilian Jeeps, CJ-2As, back in the 1940s. And now, with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, undressing the newest descendent of that CJ is easier than it has been in…
If you’re familiar with Jeep’s long running JK-generation Wrangler, you’ll know that it’s quite difficult to fold the windshield if you want to go proper off-road spec. For the new 2018 Jeep JL, they’ve remedied that, and made it quite simple to not only remove the roof, but fold the windshield forward in just about 5…
The time has finally come; I’m near Tucson, Arizona, preparing to drive the next generation Jeep Wrangler both on and off-road. So now’s the time to tell me what you want to learn about the newest version of the “truest” Jeep in the brand’s lineup.
There’s this Jeep Cherokee that I love dearly—one that I bought for only $600, fixed up using junkyard parts, and drove all the way to Moab, Utah. But ever since that epic trip, the XJ has been falling apart, and now I’m wondering: is it time to send the Project Swiss Cheese to the ol’ off-road park in the sky?
Another week, another pile of emails filled with Craigslist links to extremely tempting shitboxes. Here are a few of my favorites from readers who know I have a “problem,” but who simply don’t care.
While wrenching on my $800 Jeep Grand Wagoneer this past weekend, I made a major gaffe that could have cost me hundreds of dollars. But it was just one of many blunders I’ve made over the years, and it’s the sort of thing I’ve come to embrace. And if you want to get into wrenching, then you should embrace your own…
Jeep never put the 1991 Wagoneer 200 concept into production and that’s probably for the best. Had there been more than a single example built, it is likely that the Earth would re-orient its own orbit due to the vehicles’ prodigious mass.
For the past few years, I’ve held a dark secret: while my colleagues at Jalopnik scrambled to learn every detail they could get about the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler, I already knew most everything. I just couldn’t say anything to them.
Bringing the 2018 Jeep Wrangler to life was a massive project that took hundreds of people years to do. We caught up with a few of them including Jeep Design Director Mark Allen, to hear about how the new Jeep known as the “JL” came together and climb around a few to dig into details.
After years of teasers and trailers, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler known as the “JL” is finally officially being revealed and detailed at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Here’s a quick run through some of the new Jeep’s key specs and details.
There are many reasons why cutting the top half off of a unibody Jeep Liberty, and bolting a new body onto the remains is a bad idea. But all those reasons have to do with “physics.” And when it comes to the diesel-y dreams of one 4x4 enthusiast named Jason Stone, physics be damned.
If you were worried that Jeep was just going to re-badge a Ram or worse, a European Fiat, you don’t have anything to worry about! The latest reports from sources with DIRECT knowledge claim the new Scrambler can be optioned with a removable soft top, like a real Jeep.
Combining the versatile body of a Jeep Wrangler with the beefy, Cummins-powered chassis of a Ram 2500 sounds like a brilliant idea. Maybe. But someone in New Jersey did just that, and the result is one of the strangest looking Jeeps I’ve ever seen.
To live your entire life under the oppressive North Korean regime must be terrible. To endure the tasks asked of you as a member of the country’s armed forces, to live in poverty conditions, to serve a dictatorial maniac. Years of oppression, even under the threat of death, caused this as-yet-unnamed twenty-something…
Despite me already having seven cars in various states of disrepair, readers keep sending more Craigslist links to shitboxes! It’s almost as if they want to see me burn. Here are the most recent Craigslist links that these virtual crack dealers have emailed me.
In a moment of weakness last night, I texted my ex-Jeep’s new owner—you know, just to see how things were going. What I learned is that, as much as I miss that beautiful 4.0-liter manual transmission XJ, it doesn’t look like it misses me. It looks genuinely happy.
I like wrestling superstar/actor/enormous invisible man John Cena a little more every time I hear about him. Today I learned he used his first WWE paycheck on one of the worst Jeep Wranglers ever, and still has it. And loves it!
When I bought my 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer a few weeks ago, I’ll admit that I didn’t really look at it very carefully. “Frame doesn’t have holes, engine isn’t seized—I’ll take it,” I decided in desperation after failing to find a project for months. Now I’ve had some time to look the Woodie over, and, well, it’s not…
