Or, on the other hand, the Rubicon versions -- JLU and the JT are 400+ pounds apart; yet use the same hp/torque #'s ! You would think, being a Truck, Jeep would of programmed/adjusted the JT to the RAM specs to offset that additional 400+ pounds !Yea the Ram is rated at 305 horse 269 tq whereas the JL is 285/260. Negligibly different and the JL truck is way lighter than the Ram, so back to my original hypothesis which is: The Jeep Truck will be fine. And some other facts to support my theory... The Taco is at 278/265 and Canyon/Coloraydos are at 305/269. So yea no worries, I am sure the diesel will really help too. I do think it will be just fine.
Maybe they will wake up by launch (or lunch) and correct this oversight (IMO) ! Other than that, I really like what I've seen so far, and glad they didn't have the room (IMO) to add all the eTorque/BSG "crap" - adding even more weight & complexity ! Now if they could figure out a way to NOT have to water cool the 48v pack that would make me less apprehensive - which is what I am in regards to the 2.0L in the JLU, my 1st choice ! Not convinced yet on the safety or reliability of the 2.0L system, but hopeful that by the time I'm ready to order i am - late Spring or perhaps Fall next year !?
