    I could be wrong but that 99 limit is because of the tires speed rating?

    We’re talking about making historically the least aerodynamic and worst handling vehicle still in production go over 100mph. Noooobody said it was safe haha.

    How much would the full time transfer case impact off-roadability? I don't understand those well enough to understand if the slipping feature would cause issues with the vehicle gripping on rough climbs like the waterfall Moby went up in the recent video. Would lockers compensate for that at all?

    This would be very tempting if it is in the 60-70k range. I'd want to wait a few years to make sure FCA worked out all the bugs... But if it loses off road capability just to gain speed it'll be a hard pass. I prefer motorcycles when I have a need for speed...

    Many AWD transfer cases still lock in fully mechanically when in low range. I would hope that would be the case with this one.

    I'm pretty sure it does.

    Thanks for the feedback! We'll see what the future holds, definitely going to be interesting to see how well this performs/what issues it may have.

    What about flat towing with the SelecTrac awd t-case. Any expected issues with the ability to flat tow the new JLUR392?

    Is some of the “lift” coming from a body lift? Wondering if it needed a 1” spacer or something to fit the tall deck and that fancy air box with enough margin for a manufacturer.....

    Was having a random string of thought today about building one of these:

    With the full time 4WD did they ditch the FAD?

    Along those lines, the UD60s come with manual locking hubs.

    Pretty sure that would cause issues with the t-case.

    Would bet that is why it was not part of the launch info.

    All good points. That Tcase was the only thing I didn’t like about that launch. Don’t quite understand it.

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.
