Mechanical Fortitude: Why The Jeep Wrangler JL Is Poised to Surpass The Jeep Wrangler JK


A post shared by Jeep (@jeep) on

The 2018 model year marked the production of two Jeep Wrangler models simultaneously: the Wrangler JK and the all-new Wrangler JL. Having proved itself worth of the most perilous off-road trails worldwide throughout its eleven-year production cycle, the Wrangler JK garnered support from millions of devout drivers throughout the nation. However, due to its extensive testing in real-world scenarios by countless drivers, minor shortcomings began to appear with extended use and off-road abuse. Listening to the feedback of Wrangler JK owners, Jeep engineers sought to address these issues with their Wrangler JL. While extensive real-world testing has yet to prove the extent of the Wrangler JL's fortitude, its admirable build quality and attention to detail has drawn excitement and praise from Jeep enthusiasts and reputable mechanics alike.

Off-Road Performance - Features to Enhance Capability

The Wrangler JL features a few notable engineering changes that should dramatically improve the Wrangler JL's off-road capability. Firstly, a standalone hydro-electric steering pump that runs independent of the motor will provide drivers with full power, even while at slow speeds - significantly improving handling while rock crawling or navigating off-road trails. Secondly, the Wrangler JL's steering assembly from the gearbox down boasts a massive reinforcing sector shaft that envelops the pitman arm - previously, when tackling tough terrain or cranking the steering wheel over, this shaft that connects the gearbox to the rest of the steering components could sheer off, leaving drivers stranded without steering. Lastly, a re-routed exhaust allows for clearance of both the driveline and rear track bar, even when lifting your Jeep or encountering suspension-flexing terrain off-road. With a variety of additional mechanical enhancements within the Wrangler JL, Jeep's assertion of the Wrangler JL being uniquely capable appears rooted in demonstrable reality.
