2018 Jeep Wrangler JL

Recommended Posts

Picked up a 2018 JL in Bright White from Tempe Jeep earlier this week. Since relocating from South Africa we have always wanted to replace the Wrangler we sold there. We actually went to go view a different JL, but after asking the salesman to run the VIN it came up for the recall that will be rolled out soon... We ended up with the Sport but had the optional S package, which includes power doors and windows, UConnect interface and some smaller additions. It is a soft top though.

 

Mission:

 

The goal is for the JL to be a family orientated rig. It will be used to go on camping trips, longer trips out of state where the XJ/ZJ would be somewhat uncomfortable. It will be a relatively "mild build", and right now thinking of a Mopar 2" lift and a 33" All Terrain (Possibly Cooper STT Pro's, BFG KM3). I am going to try and keep a factory look on the JL where possible. There will also be smaller useful mods done, like sliding fridge in the cargo area etc...

 

First Off Impressions:

 

So far everything is awesome! It has a very comfortable ride, and the automatic 8 speed transmission is as smooth as butter. The UConnect multimedia system is pretty neat, and when you connect a phone via USB it mirrors your phone screen on the vehicles screen essentially. It becomes quite useful when you are running maps and music apps.

 

All in all I am very happy with it. Feels quite odd driving a brand new JL that came off the floor with 2 miles when compared to the 265 000 mile XJ!
