Being that Cindy and I ordered our brand new 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited sight unseen and well before any dealership had one on their lot, neither of us has had a chance to test drive one or at least, not until we took possession of it. In this episode of the JL Journal, you'll get to ride along with us as we take our JL out for its very first drive, up to Lake Tahoe and you'll even get to hear some of our initial impressions of it. We hope you enjoy.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAQUPg752iM&feature=youtu.be

JL JOURNAL is a WAYALIFE Production with a focus on the all new Jeep JL Wrangler. This YouTube video series will highlight every aspect of our Jeep JL Wrangler and of course, all the adventures that it takes us on. We hope that you'll follow us along on our journey.

Very cool video. Seeing these makes for a good substitute for what it can be like since I haven't been able to see or drive one yet. Dealers around here are a bit slow with getting them in. Thanks for this video you guys!! 👍

I can't say enough how much you guys are killing me. Lol.

But thanks for sharing the drive test with us. Seems like it's so far so good with all the new features.

Have you guys played around much with the infotainment system yet. Guess there is some question about the "off-road" setting and features availability. Jeep promoted on FB.

With as much as you both seem to like you JLUR, it may be hard to decide how to modify it...

Iím really glad you both like it so much! It makes me want to consider upgrading to one.:yup:

We've started to and it is complicated for sure. Feels like piloting the Starship Enterprise. Definitely something you want to play with while parked :crazyeyes:

LOL! It's why we live where we live - so we can do things like that :yup:

One question, what gear were you in at 3000 rpm going up the hill?

Oh, 8th most of the time - 7th when I wanted to pass or go faster. There were quite a few NHP on the highway so I was keeping it at about the speed limit, 55 - 60 MPH.

Since got a CJ7 sitting in the driveway right now so easier to grasp the look lol. Thank you for sharing.

that was a nice review, thanks for keeping the pressure on in wanting one!! it's killing me lol

But I'll keep watching and feeding the habit :thumb:

My clients are all out the rest of this week so I've got idle time on my hands, since the weather is crap here, I may go for another test drive

I agree on the visibility, the windows and rear all seem slightly larger than even the 2015 - which are slightly larger than the 2010.

It must be the slant of the front windshield but even in video the visibility seems better as you don't see the top of the windshield like you would in a JK.

Great video. The JL really seems like an evolution in luxury especially with you making sure your heated seats and steering wheel worked. (Where is the snow in Tahoe?) My wife's cherokee has the stop/start and although I don't mind it much of the time, it is horrible when pulling up to a 4 way stop, pulling in your garage because it shuts off then when you put it in park it starts back up just so you can shut it off again, bad for pulling out in traffic and many other things. I got tired of disabling it whenever I get in so I pulled the sensor from under the hood so it thinks the hood is open. This disables the stop/start all of the time. I can't wait for what else you guys do with your JL as I wait patiently for the time when I finally purchase mine.

You know, it was hard for us to say for sure being that we're running a sport bar in both our JK's but both Cindy and I felt like visibility was better out the windshield too. We just left that part out due to us not knowing for sure what the reason was. :crazyeyes:

Awesome video, I test drove a JL Rubicon with the 3.6 at the local dealership and was so tempted to buy it on the spot. But I wanted to wait until I can test drive the 2.0 turbo and the 3.0 diesel. Guess I will have to wait until next year before I purchase.

LOL!! From what I've been told and from people know, the difference between the 3.6L and the 2.0L isn't as much as one would think. For the $3k premium, I personally wouldn't hold out for one. As far as the 3.0L diesel goes, that might be a different story. But, if it really is that awesome, we can always trade up :yup:

My wife will divorce me if I purchased a 3.6 only to trade up to the 3.0 diesel within a 1 year time. I am so tempted to get one now but I'll just watch and follow your post until I see when you trade up to the diesel engine ;)

Ummm. The video showed they were using a tiptronic shifter option with an indication on the instrument cluster, So that you can manually select the gear you want to be in rather than letting the transmission automatically decide for you.

We did get the LED group and that includes the lights on the fenders. As far as useful goes, not sure what you mean by that but I do know there are companies out there who are planning to make kits that WILL convert them into driving lights. Should be really interesting to see... especially at night :yup:

I think people will build JKís for a while, but if I bought a JL, Iíd post a build thread here, and also here, at JL Wrangler. https://jlwrangler.com/showthread.php?544-REMINDER-Build-Threads-Posted-Here

Like the TJs before the JK, the JKs will still be built. I recently saw two 2012+ Rubicons around here with low miles and a decent amount of mods for around 30k. Which IMO isn't a bad price compared to what it was a couple of years ago. I think used newer JKs at a lower price will still appeal to a lot of buyers.

I'm sticking here not leaving. My wife said no JL, she said we will get a new engine first. Man I can't wait for a V8. Sucker!

Hope the price doesnít get too low! Glad to hear youíre sticking around.

Hi Eddie, Do you happen to have a set of 35s laying around that you could throw on Jet Li to show us how the 35s look with the stock suspension and fender flares? Thanks!

Looks nice. Always exciting getting into a brand new jeep ! Hope its trouble free. & Enjoy
jeepmojo

Thanks! We appreciate it :cool:


Haha, that's funny... Cindy's too nice 😀. I'm really hard on myself when I realize I've missed a Jeep wave opportunity. It happens...

LOL!! Thank you for your understanding :blush:


Oh my, that is a nice ride up the hill. On the drive by, it looks lifted with those high clearance front fenders and wide. Like a few have mentioned, a diesel truck is where Iím headed but that may change when the off road video comes out.... great job guys!:rock:

Thanks! Jeep has stated that you can run 35's as is on a Rubicon but that they recommend a 2" lift if you plan on flexing out on the rocks. I have a feeling you could do it with just a leveling kit. As far as the truck goes, I want one and it'll make a great camping rig but I'd be hard pressed to want to wheel something that long across the Rubicon.


Did the Ohís get rid of the Renegade? Eddie was speaking in past tense regarding the renegade a few times.


Yes they did

What coz said, we sold it.

LOL! There are over 2 million JK's out on the road today. I can almost guarantee that there will be people buying and modifying them for some time to come :yup:


Damn so no more toaster forum?

No, we still have toasterjeep.com :yup:

Unfortunately, we don't. Haven't run 35's in quite some time on any of our Jeeps.

I know a guy with 35ís on 5 on 5 wheels. Let me know if you want him to stop by one of these days so you can try them on for size. ;)

LOL!! Now there's a thought. Assuming the holes on your wheels can accommodate 14mm studs, we may have to arrange a meet up sometime soon :thumb:

I have ATX Cornice wheels but have no clue what the holes will accommodate. (I canít believe we are discussing whether my hole is big enough for your stud). [emoji15][emoji51]
