So that statistic is for labor hours. Not sure where they are no for the JL and JT, but the JK had the distinction that it went together in just 13 1/2 hours. Again, that's labor hours, not line time. Much of that comes from outsourced sub-assemblies at Supplier Park (Toledo Assembly) While...
Tougher on the JL/JT than the JK. The JK didn’t have a front axle disconnect, so the truetrac (or any lsd) could just ride along unbothered. With the axle disconnect each side of the diff is supposed to spin in opposite directions. To run an LSD , you need to defeat the CAD.
Really had to dig: If you go down to the options in the 2021 order guide, in the "group Detail" section, p23, you see the this-
EXJ 3.0L V6 TURBO DIESEL ENGINE W/ESS G3 E E E
• 19 GALLON FUEL TANK (NF1)
• 245/75R17 BSW A/T DUELER TIRES (TTH) - W/O 2TK OR 2TW
• 3.73 REAR AXLE RATIO (DME)
Neat trick how that Diesel rubicon loses 1 mpg highway AND city, but keeps the same combined score.
the tow rating has NOTHING to do with the 3.73 axle ratio. The Ram 1500 uses the same trans and with 3.21 gears and 32" tires has a 13,900 GCW.
On 33" tires, you're only turning about 2080rpm at...
Yeah. Door electrics are all shieleded pretty well, rugs are designed to drain and dry. I would just insist they owe you a full interior/exterior detail when you choose.
What I can’t get past is that they can’t fix it right away and don’t just cough up a loaner.
Unless your entire life plays out on narrow 2-tracks, its almost impossible to make a rational argument for the Gladiator over the value and capability of a full-size truck. The Gladiator is just enjoyable. Its fun. Its different. You have to decide if those are worth while trade-offs for...
