    And third, the aftermarket will have more time to design and manufacture goodies...
    This is exactly why I waited to get a '19 JL. I've purchased first year vehicles twice before and regretted it both times. I don't know if there is anything much different between the '18 & '19 JL's, but like Brute said, it gives them a chance to work out any unforseen things that crop up after they've been in the real world for a while.

    As far as the gouging, there's always dealers that try this nonsense when a "hot new something" comes out. If someone is dumb enough to pay the premium instead of looking around, then shame on them.

    I doubt that.

    Last time Jeep had a truck — the Comanche — they sold 190k units over 7 years (1985-1992).

    Jeep sold that many JKs in 2017 alone.

    Let’s hope the JL does better than the Comanche.

    Along with my statement above, this is a 4 DOOR Jeep truck. That will be a HUGE selling point with the modern buyer.

    The 4 door thing makes this more marketable, and a big reason why you’ll never see a 2 door production model. That just doesn’t sell anymore.

    This is the exact reason I didn't have a Jeep while having 3 young kids. Trying to cram all of our shit and car seats into a YJ or TJ just wasn't happening. When the JKU's came out that was a whole new ballgame.

    We've done several road trips with the JKU with 3 kids fully loaded with fridge, gear, etc. It can definitely be done. The truck will be even better I think.

    If I decide to go to a midsized truck, I might consider a Gladiator, but I sure won't pay above MSRP for it. I need something than can tow in any event and I already have a 2 dr and a 4dr.

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.
