They changed the upper mount on the front shocks to a bolt instead of a stem. Anyone with a JK knows the pain.

There might be others...just saying. :laugh:

I'm new to the Wrangler scene so the check mounts are new to me. What was wrong with the old Stem mount compared to the newer Bolt one? Was it a weaker mounting point causing something to break?

I think the upgrade to the uconnect is the best thing. No more waiting until the end of the incoming call announcement is over before I can answer the call.

Try saying that after you've installed a lift kit and some larger wheels aha. Luckily those who opt for the Rubicon probably wont see the need for a lift.

I thought the JL Rubi could fit 35' tires without any lift kit? Guess that wouldn't allow for much clearance though, and could result in some tire rubbing with sharp turns.

I think it could be awhile until we see a full hybrid system in a Wrangler, but they could probably implement one of the mild systems fairly easily. It would basically just swap out the alternator for a more powerful electric engine.
