    Talk of a new redesigned Wrangler for 2017 to be aluminum with unibody.Also talking of moving production away from Toledo because it would talk so long to retool the plant.

    Just as long as they stay with solid axles the rest is workable! Oh, and not built in Italy!

    The big question is why change a good thing. They are making like 800 a day right now (max capacity) and they are selling like hotcakes.

    It is the newly approved CAFE standards. Can't remember the date, but they want 50mpg by that date. At that point probably the only thing you will be able to buy new is a Renegade
    230 hp 4.3L Chevy
    Built 4L60E with manual lockout
    Atlas 4 speed
    Griffin radiator
    On board air
    Warn 9.5ti on custom bumper
    7.5" RE front and bastard pack rear on custom long arms
    30 gal gas tank
    lockers
    And a bunch of other stuff
