It's the end of an era, the last Jeep Wrangler JK and four-door Wrangler Unlimited JKU will roll down the assembly line today at the plant in Toledo, Ohio. The end to a long production period from 2006 and it only saw a hiatus in 2009 when Chrysler went through bankruptcy. It was great while it lasted and Automotive News put it in an interesting perspective.
In some ways, the end of the JK is like the child of a thrice-married woman mourning the death of his first stepdad: He was a great guy who did great things in the day, and he definitely helped get mom back on her feet. He made us all a bunch of money, and we're grateful, but mom's found someone better now, so it's time for him to go.
