    About Jeep Wrangler


    Based on the infamous CJ that premiered during the peak of World War II, the Jeep Wrangler hit US roadways in 1986 full of off-road prowess. Underneath the hood was the choice of either a 2.5L four-cylinder engine or a 4.2L six-cylinder. Engines could be geared to either a five-speed manual transmission or a three-speed automatic. Like the CJ before it, the Wrangler was referred to as the YJ. It differed from the CJ in that it had a wider wheelbase, a leaf-spring suspension with larger springs, a wider windshield, and a different front-end grille. There were not a bevy of changes made to the model during its first few years on the road, however, in 1991 a 4.0L inline six-cylinder entered the lineup. Capable of up to 180 horsepower, the 4.0L inline six stepped in and replaced the older and less-powerful 4.2L configuration. Trim levels during the Wrangler's first generation included the base S, Islander, Sahara, Renegade, and Laredo.

    After a one-year absence, the Jeep Wrangler's second generation was introduced in 1997. Known as the TJ, the Wrangler featured round headlights, which promoted a reference to the CJ models of old. At launch, the second-generation Wrangler displayed a new and improved interior which was centered on a revised layout and upgraded materials. And as with the previous generation, a coil-spring suspension was used. Initially, trim levels were the base SE, Sport, and Sahara. The SE was equipped with a 2.5L inline four-cylinder engine good for 120 horsepower. The Sport and the top-level Sahara were powered by the 4.0L inline six (190 hp). Engines were directed through either a five-speed manual transmission or a three-speed automatic. In 2003, the Wrangler "X" debuted and placed above the SE in the lineup. The Wrangler Rubicon was released, as well, featuring an off-road profile which included 31" tires, locking front/rear Dana axles, and a transfer case. Also that year, the three-speed automatic transmission was upgraded to a four-speed. Similarly, 2004 saw a six-speed manual transmission taking over for the previous five-speed gearbox.

    The third generation of the Jeep Wrangler was introduced for the 2007 model year. When it rolled off the line, it was slightly larger than the previous generation and featured improvements in just about all Wrangler parts. A substantial amount of insulation was added for a quieter ride while the suspension was stiffened. Three main trim levels were offered: X, Sahara, and Rubicon. All three could be had with one of two body styles - standard two-door (shorter wheelbase) or Unlimited, which is the Wrangler's four-door variant. All versions of the Jeep Wrangler were given a 3.8L V6 engine rated at 202 horsepower and 237 pounds-per-foot of torque geared to a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic. Two limited edition Wranglers, the Mountain and Islander, were released for the 2010 model year.

    What more can you say about an American institution? The Jeep Wrangler has been an iconic presence since the days of WWII, taking from its forefathers and producing reliable results to this day. Sure, some improvements and additions have made their way onto the Wrangler since then, but it still has that bold and versatile appearance that made Jeep famous. Some drivers like to modernize their Wrangler with stylish accessories while others like to trim it enough to stay in the game for extra innings. Either way, it is capable of handling just about anything. Isn't that what it was designed for?

    Turn Your Wrangler Into Pickup Truck
    Turn Your Wrangler Into Pickup Truck

    Jeep has produced an aftermarket package for the Wrangler's owners and set a price tag at $5499. The JK-8 kit made it public appearance at the 2011 Jeep Moab Safari. Using this package, the engineers managed to transform the Wrangler Unlimited into Wrangler Unlimited pickup in one hour. The JK-8 is sold in any Jeep, Chrysler, Ram and Dodge dealerships. Mopar dealership can assist the drivers in package installation. Such kits comes with a three-year, 36,000 mile warranty.

    The conversion kit includes body panel reinforcements, made of stamped sheet metal, new, shortened roof panel, manufactured of fiberglass, and a converted sport bar. The installation will require drilling as some body panels need to have spot welds. Moreover, it will be necessary to remove bumpers, doors and roof.

    Jeep says the appearance of the 1981 CJ-8 Scrambler inspired the engineering team to produce this kit. This model was popular until 1986, when the Comanche pickup was unveiled. Rumors go that Jeep is hard at work to produce a new pickup truck, but the official confirmation has not been released yet.

    Jeep to wait for results of NHTSA investigation
    Jeep to wait for results of NHTSA investigation

    Since 1970 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) closely cooperates with the automotive industry and is appointed to be responsible for realization of programs, aimed to reduce injuries, death and economic losses caused by vehicle crashes. One of the main grounds for the safety agency to start the probe is the certain quantity of complaints received from the vehicles' owners. This time the defect investigation department received complaints from the drivers of the 2007-2008 Jeep Wranglers, made by Chrysler Group LLC. The vehicles of these model years were built at Jeep's plant in Toledo, Ohio. The ground of the consumer complaints is the improper work of electrical circuit in the airbag clock-spring wiring. This means the front seat airbag may not deploy in a collision. According to the preliminary estimation about 220,000 Wranglers may be affected. The safety agency received 29 complaints and started the investigation on the 23rd of May. Until now none of the reports contained the information about injuries or crashes. According to the NHTSA, both left-hand-drive and right-hand-drive Wranglers may be affected.

    Now the owners of 2007-2008 Jeep Wranglers are to wait for the end of the probe and for the relevant report, made by the safety agency. Not every investigation of the NHTSA leads to recall. Last week the NHTSA investigated the problems with Toyota Corollas. Fortunately for Toyota, no recall was ordered.
