    #2, probably wait until the 2nd year of production so any bugs will be mostly worked out. I will be keeping my 2008 JK for a long time. I'm hoping to have a big enough garage to keep them all in by 2018.

    Probably not. My plan now is to do an LS swap once the 3.6 gets enough wear. I'd rather put my money towards that than a new JL that I'd have to start all over with. I think the JK will have the same kind of appeal that the 92-97 OBS Ford trucks have had anyways.

    I'll stick with my 2008 since I already pour too much $ as spent way too much to start over.

    I'm itching for the new JL truck they are promising. And hopefully with an ecodiesel! Not sure I'll be able to swing that and keep my JK though. After renting a Renegade and seeing the video Renegade on the rocks, I see one of those in our near future as well

    Will You Buy a New JL Wrangler?

    I guess I'm conflicted, so part (1) and part (6). I just flipped my 1-mo old Willys for a HR, so the JL is really going to have to blow me away to trade.

    So my answer is it depends on what it really looks like and if we get the diesel option. What would it take for me to go all "take my money" on them? If they made either a Defender 110-sized wagon (like their recent safari concept) or a 4-dr extended bed pickup model (and a military-style, optional roll cage and canvas tarp over the bed would have me seeing stars, but this could be something the aftermarket industry comes up with for any JL pickup). If all they release are replacements for the JK/JKU, then the diesel would be my only draw, and I'm not yet sure that's enough for a first model buy-up.

    #4 - I do not see how these modifications will make the JL any more off-road worthy. I guess when we lift or modify our Jeeps, we are really going against what the engineers intended. With that being said, I suspect that these new versions will simply be something to appeal to a larger on-road crowd and likely reduce the ability to further modify in the future for our purposes on this forum. Let's face it, what we do to our Jeeps is not normal and no where near what most people use their Jeeps for. Just my two cents.
    RubySky's Build:
    EVO Double Throw Down Front and Rear suspension with bypass system and EVO Lever
    EVO Extreme High Clearance Long Arm Upgrade
    Dynatrac ProRock 44 Front Axle with Pro Steer Ball Joints, G2 35 Spline Placer Gold Axles, ProGrip Brakes
    Dynatrac ProRock XD60 rear axle, full float with 5.38 gearing
    JE Reel 1350 drive shafts
    EVO Pro-Tek Skid Plate System
    PSC Extreme Duty Cylinder Steering Assist kit
    EVO Rear RockStops with King Air Bumps
    Nitto Trail Grapplers at 37x12.50x17

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
