New Spy Photos Of The 2019 JT Wrangler Pickup Truck

Recently our friends at the JL Wrangler forum have spotted the highly anticipated JT Wrangler Pickup on the road during a test drive. The spy photos confirm past rumors, clarify previously unanswered questions and give us a clearer look of what the proposed JT pickup might end up looking like when it hits the showroom in the fall of 2018 after the release of the 2018 JL Wrangler. Here’s a breakdown of some key elements seen in the photos.

2019 JT Wrangler Truck Side ShotLonger Truck Bed

Earlier spy photos of the JT Wrangler pickup had the prototype utilizing a repurposed dodge truck bed. This was clear due to the misalignment of the bed in comparison to the body and wheels. Recently, aerial photos showed a more proportionally sized truck bed, with a cleaner and tighter fit.

These recent close up photos give us better view of the truck bed and the overall fitment. One of the things that is noticeably clear is the overall length, the truck bed on the test JT four door Wrangler is much longer with more of an over hang past the rear wheels. This certainly stretches out the Jeep’s wheelbase and calls into question its maneuverability on tight trails.

In addition, a longer platform could be problematic on inclined hills with a sharp break-over angle, creating the possibility of getting stuck high center. The longer bed however will allow for more cargo room, making the JT wrangler a legitimate work truck.

Spare Tire Location

Earlier concerns and questions when discussing the JT pick up revolved around the position of the spare tire. Traditionally Wranglers have the spare tire mounted on the tailgate, which is attached to hinges that swings open to the side.

This wasn’t a practical use for a pick up, which normally utilize a tailgates that fold down flat, for easier access to the truck bed. The spy photos however reveal that the spare tire is mounted under the truck bed, like most other traditional pickups.

Although this does solve the issue with the use of the tailgate, it raises a concern in regards to the larger tires. A common modification for most Wrangler owners are larger tires, will this new spare tire space allow for larger tires? That’s something we’ll have to wait and see.

2019 JT Wrangler Pickup Truck Front ShotOverall Exterior Styling

These new spy photos of the JT Wrangler also show a consistent look when compared to the front half of the JL Wrangler. A raked grill and windshield, along with a flat hood and defined centerline are clear through the camouflage. In addition, angular bulges along the front fenders seem to indicate a side vent like on the JL Wrangler.

LEAKED: 2018 JL Wrangler Interior Images

Our friends at JL Wrangler forum just released spy photos of the upcoming 2018 JL Wrangler’s interior. The photos reveal a significant amount of information regarding the design and several rumored features. Here’s a breakdown of what can be seen in the photo.

2018 JL Wrangler InteriorDashboard

Picking up on what seems to be Jeep’s styling direction of the JL Wrangler, the interior has been redesigned, but maintains several iconic Jeep components. The dash board retains the flat upright stance, but now has a sleek color finish, which could be tied to the exterior color of the Jeep or provide additional styling color contrast. It has a rounded look like the Chrysler PT Cruisers and keeps the four-iconic large round vent openings that have become trademark Wrangler interior pieces. In addition, the gauge cluster seems to be separated into similar round pod openings as the vents and finished with a chrome accent.

2018 Wrangler Infotainment CenterInfotainment Screen

As mentioned in previous blog posts, the Jeep’s interior could feature one of three touch-screen display options, including a 5-inch, 7-inch or 8.4-inch screen. The spy photo seems to showcase the larger 8.4-inch infotainment system, which has a large screen interface that is prominently visible in the center of the dashboard and is rumored to have similar off-road gauges found on the 2017 Grand Cherokee.

2018 JL Wrangler Grab BarsGrab Bars

Earlier exterior photos showed the possibility of grab handles to make getting into the Jeep easier. This recent photo clearly shows the grab bar integration with the A-pillar in a nice finished look, that provides a great functional element to the interior.

2018 JL Wrangler Overhead consoleOverhead Console

Following along the A-pillar, the overhead console is also very visible, highlighting homelink buttons on the visor and a latch/control lever for the possibility of the SkyView powered roof system. In addition, the rear-view mirror has a significantly stout stalk that comes down from the overhead console. It’s unclear from the photos what functions it could provide, but the size is larger than current auto dim mirrors and could house additional features.

2018 Jeep Wrangler ButtonsNew Buttons

Among the most important portion of the interior spy photo involves the control buttons along the bottom of the center console. The series of buttons reveal several important options that could make their way into production.

Auto Start/Stop: This feature was part of a recent proximity keyless entry report and can be seen in the bottom corner.

Parking Sensor: The parking sensor button is clearly visible and an important feature to have. It will be interesting to see how the system is integrated into the rear of the Jeep and how it will affect aftermarket rear bumper designs.

Off-road controls: The sway-bar disconnect buttons, typically found under the driver side vent on Rubicon models, has been moved to the more centralized location for a more unified cleaner look.

Heated Steering Wheel: This is a great convenience feature found on higher –end vehicles and a welcome option in colder climates.

Unconnect Controls: Larger dials along the sides seem to provide manual controls of the Unconnect system.

Auxiliary Buttons: One of the most curious element of the button cluster is the series of four auxiliary labeled buttons. Could this possibly lead to a power distribution solution for auxiliary items such as lighting and air pumps?

2018 Wrangler Power Roof and Accessory Update

The upcoming redesigned 2018 JL Wrangler has several rumored exciting updates. One of which involves the variety of roof top options as well as some possible communication accessories.

2018 JL Wrangler Soft TopPower Roof Option

The 2018 JL Wrangler’s top has been rumored to come in three distinct options. As reported in the past, the upcoming Wrangler might come equipped with a soft top that might be power retractable along frame channels located on the sport bar.

This top option has been among the most anticipated, finally providing Wrangler owners with the possibility of easily retracing the soft-top and avoiding the need to manually retract is between two people in larger unlimited models. The second option might include the standard fiberglass hard top with removable freedom panels, found on current models. This top would still get a slight redesign, according to past spy photos that highlighted the possibility of centerline provisions or handles to make removal/installation easier.

The third option was always rumored to have been a fixed hard top, which seems to have just gotten more interesting. Recent spy photos from our friends on the JL Wrangler Forum show a series of levers and switches along the interior overhead console, on a prototype JL Wrangler equipped with a hardtop.

2018 Wrangler Less CamoThe series of switches look like the controls found on Jeep Renegades equipped with MySky Power retractable roof panels. The hardtop fiberglass panels found on the Renegade can retract electronically along roof channels, like a regular power sunroof found on most vehicles. In addition, the MySky panels can also be fully removed and stored flat inside the vehicle’s cargo floor with an included storage bag.

What makes this recent rumor interesting is the possibility that it could finally lead to confirmation of a fixed hard top option for the Wrangler. A fixed hard top would provide more structural stability and would most certainly come with a cargo railing system to help with accessories mounts for bikes and skis.

This would also be an interesting addition to the lineup of top options, appealing to owners that normally run a hard top year-round and never felt the need or desire to remove the top, just occasionally removing the freedom panels. This power retractable option would make that process even easier.

2018 Jeep JL Wrangler ImageCB Accessory Connection

Another recent rumor brought to us by our friends at JL Wrangler forum, indicates the possibility of a CB radio accessory mount and wiring. CB radios are incredibly useful while on the trail, often providing a reliable form of communication when you’re located in an area without cell phone reception.

Hard-wired CB units also provide a greater range when compared to hand-held walkie-talkies. It’s still unconfirmed if this will be a standard or optional accessory or if a separate CB antenna will be used or combined along with the radio antenna. In addition, the location might be a concern if it’s designed to share the overhead console space with the rumored MySky control panels.

2019 JT Wrangler Pickup Truck Spotted Testing!

It seems like we’re starting to get a steady stream of sightings and more information surrounding the upcoming 2018 JL Wrangler, but the highly-anticipated 2019 JT Pickup version of the redesigned Wrangler has remained silent, until recently.

Earlier this week our friends at the JL Wrangler Forum reported on the most recent sighting of the upcoming JT Wrangler Pickup. The pickup version of the redesigned Jeep was last seen over nine months ago. During that time, the prototype pickup had a repurposed truck bed borrowed from a Dodge Ram 1500, the transplant was clear due to the size and misalignment with the rear wheels.

This new prototype sports a properly fitted pickup bed, that is proportional with the rest of the truck and properly aligns with the rear wheels. In addition, the prototype JT was a 4-door unlimited crew cab pickup model. This recent appearance offers a great opportunity to recap all the information we have compiled until now.

2019 JT Wrangler Pickup TruckJT Wrangler Pickup Engine Options

The latest sighting was a 4-door Unlimited crew cab model, but it has also been reported that the upcoming JT Pickup will be offered in a 2-door single cab model, continuing the debate between 2 and 4-door design benefits.

In addition, the new JT is rumored to come equipped with either the 2.0L “Hurricane” Turbo engine, 3.0L VM Diesel engine or the upgraded 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with start/stop technology. All the engine options will be paired with either an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.

Rear view of the 2019 JT Wrangler PickupJT Wrangler Pickup Exterior Styling

From the most recent spy photos, the truck bed seems to fit more proportionally with the rest of the Jeep, the bed also seems to maintain the center body line and square stance that the Jeep is known for. Like the AEV Brute model trucks, the JT pickup seems to have a great flat rugged stance that compliments the overall exterior styling, but is also very functional in terms of cargo and off-road capability.

The JT will also sport the same exterior upgrades as the upcoming JL Wrangler, with a slight slant to the windshield and front grill to help improve aerodynamics, a flatter hood and distinct centerline running the length of the body help provide a solid stance. In addition, the heavily camouflaged JT pickup, seems to have a bulge along the sides of the front fenders, which seems to fall in-line with earlier reports of functional side fender vents to help aide engine temperatures.

Exterior styling elements that are still uncertain for the JT pickup involve the top options. The upcoming JL Wranglers are rumored to have three distinct top options, a powered soft top, traditional hard top and possibly a fixed hard top with SkyView motorized roof panels. All the leaked photos of the JT pickup have it equipped with a chopped traditional Wrangler hardtop that has freedom roof panels.

2019 JT Wrangler Truck Spy Shots2019 JT Wrangler Pickup Release Date

The JT pickup is scheduled to be a 2019 model, following the release of the redesigned 2018 JL Wrangler. If Jeep release patterns remain the same, that would mean that the ordering banks for the JL Wrangler will open in late October of 2017, with deliveries in November.

The JT pickup would follow the same pattern the following year, with ordering banks opening in late August of 2018, followed by production in October and the eventual deliveries in November of 2018.

Although major elements of the upcoming JT pickup Wrangler are still unclear, the anticipation and excitement around the highly anticipated pick up Wrangler will become clearer as time goes on.

More 2018 Wrangler Spy Shots & New Design Details

With only a couple of months left, the new 2018 JL Wrangler is picking up steam for its release in November. In anticipation for the launch, Jeep continues to refine the new model Wrangler with more real word testing.

Our friends at the JL Wrangler Forum recently spotted a heavily camouflaged prototype on the road and confirmed several early speculations, while raising some new observations.

2018 JL Wrangler rear view mirrorRear View Mirror And The Fold-able Windshield

One of the new interior items that can been seen, is how the rear-view mirror seems to now be attached to the overhead bar and no longer attached to the windshield. This can point towards earlier speculations that the new generation’s windshield will maintain the ability to fold flat. However, having the rear-view mirror relocated would seem to indicate that the process is even easier now and safer while driving on the road.

Rear Window Updates

Another interesting item that can be seen is a split window pane in the rear doors. This can indicate that the rear windows have been made larger and have a fixed piece of glass separated from the portion of the window that can be lowered. This feature is common in most SUVs and allows for more light to enter the cabin for rear seat occupants.

Lastly, you can also see that the color of this prototype Wrangler is red, which would seem to indicate that the classic red color will find its way onto the color swatch book for the upcoming Wrangler.

2018 JL Jeep WranglerRetooling at the Toledo Plant

In preparation for the launch of the new Wrangler, the Toledo Chrysler plant has finished the production of the last Cherokee for this year at the Toledo plant and has started the retooling process.

It’s reported that the during the initial launch, the new Wrangler’s production will be primarily focused in the facility, so Chrysler has begun the process early, to give itself enough time to properly prepare for the manufacturing of both the two and four door models of the new 2018 JL Wrangler. Expectations are high as Chrysler anticipates a large influx of orders for the new Wrangler when its released.

Go Rock Crawling Today – Why You Should Hit the Trails in Your Rig

You are sitting behind the wheel of your JK, completely removed from society just staring at the trail ahead that is lined with rocks and boulders. You scan the trail, looking for how you can pilot your rig over all the obstacles in front of you, while your spotter gives you the thumbs up and points to the path you need to take—this is what owning a JK is all about. There is a certain feeling of accomplishment and fulfillment that comes from looking at an area you should not be able to drive through, yet ultimately conquering it from behind the wheel of your Wrangler.

Regardless of how modded your Wrangler is, every Jeeper should get out and go rock crawling today (or tomorrow if you already have plans). Going rock crawling is a rite of passage for every Jeep owner as it is the ultimate bond between a driver and their rig. Crawling ultimately offers you the chance to gain a better understanding of your limits as well as your rig’s through a challenging course that you navigate with the help of a friend/spotter, all the while being in the middle of nature. Every Wrangler owner should go crawling at least once so they can experience first-hand all the benefits of one of the most fun off-road activities anyone can do.

The Challenge of the Course

When looking at the big picture of all the different things you could do with your JK, rock crawling is the most challenging and technical of them all. Rock crawling is in the upper echelon recreational off-roading as it requires a greater level of thought and execution, unlike other types of off-roading. You can’t just hop in your rig and hit the throttle, hoping for the best, when you go crawling; you have to carefully think out your approach and your delivery, taking into consideration if you will high-center yourself, if the suspension will bottom out, where to turn, how much throttle to apply, where to place rocks, and what way-points to hit.

Rock crawling is a challenging endeavor, which can come off as intimidating to some, but ultimately it just means you need to treat it with a greater level of respect then you would rolling down a fire access trail. While rock crawling does offer its fair share of challenges, it does come with a mix of rewards; a day of crawling can offer unparalleled scenic views, a better understanding of your rig’s capabilities, and improved vehicle control.

DSC_1567_14-01-01

Understanding Your Relationship with Your Rig

One of the biggest benefits of rock crawling – something every off-roader who is still green behind the ears needs – is that you get more seat time behind the wheel which ultimately makes you not only a better driver, but also helps you to understand your JK better. When you hit the trail to go crawling, you will quickly realize the limits of your rig as well as yourself. Putting your JK through its paces on the trail will help you to realize where you may need to mod/improve your Wrangler, as well as what you need to work on to become a better driver, whether it is eyeing up your approach or getting a grasp on throttle control.

Now in the case of modded Jeeps being piloted by under-experienced drivers, there are situations where the rig is more capable than the driver—and that’s perfectly okay (when you use a level head). It is important to not let your pride get the best of you and to know when a trail/course is above your skill level. However, should you find yourself in a precarious situation, remember to take your time and to not rush the route out of frustration. Communicating with your spotter and working together to find the best path on the trail (erring on the side of caution) will help you to have a successful rock crawling outing. Modded or not, every time you go crawling you should walk away from the experience having gained more skill behind the wheel and feel more comfortable driving your rig through intimidating landscapes.

DSC_0670_14-01-01

Experiencing Nature in a New Way

A large part of the crawling experience isn’t just about you and your Jeep, but also where you are at. If you are going rock crawling, you are not going to be around paved roads and developed neighborhoods; instead you are out on the trail with mud and dirt beneath your tires, in remote parts of the country, taking everything in while you navigate the adventure ahead of you. Going deep into nature, with your Wrangler opened up to the world around, you get to experience and see things that most other people don’t—something we Jeepers can take for granted. Your JK is your ticket to seeing sights and going places that most other vehicles will never have the ability to.

No matter how modified your JK is, every Jeep owner has the ability to go rock crawling simply because of the set of keys they have in their pocket. Granted, you may not be able to tackle the most challenging of trails, but you can still get out and have an incomparable experience that will leave you a better driver with some good memories, and even some good pictures if you take your camera with you!

The 4 Trails You Need to Drive Before You Die

When you own a Jeep Wrangler, there is a constant yearning for adventure, which can encompass everything from driving through a mud pit to going on a multi-day trip through challenging terrain. As Jeepers, we want to take the road less traveled, getting in touch with our inner-pioneer to explore the sights and serenity of the wild, all while piloting our rigs.Trail riding is the essential outlet needed to tap into that part of ourselves, giving us the freedom to see parts of the world other people only see online.

However, when it comes to the trails themselves, not all trails are equal; some offer much more to the driver in terms of fun, difficulty, scenery, and overall enjoyment. You have more than likely either seen some haphazardly assembled list or have done some Googling looking for the “best off-roading trails”, which has presumably ended in varied success. However, ask any seasoned off-roader, and there are four trails that stand out from all the others—four trails every Jeeper must ride at least once in their lifetime.

1. Moab, Utah

DSC_6255

Home to a variety of National Parks, Moab is quintessential wheeling at its finest. While there are seemingly countless trails that stretch across the state, the main area for wheeling is in a ~25 mile area called the Sand Flats Recreational Area. The terrain is mainly composed of a hard, crusty surface known as “slickrock” which provides great traction thanks to its sandpaper like quality. With nothing but scenic views for as far as the eye can see and miles of trails that range from novice to advanced, Moab is the perfect place for a Jeeper to vacation.

2. Rubicon Trail, California

rubicon

Considered by many to be the most difficult trail in the nation, the Rubicon Trail is home to 22-miles of extreme off-roading. The Rubicon Trail is an innate part of the Wrangler’s identity, especially considering there is a Rubicon model, which is no surprise since a trail as challenging and scenic is the perfect place for the Wrangler to showcase its off-road prowess. With obstacles like “Devil’s Postpile” and “Thousand Dollar Hill,” the Rubicon Trail will be a memorable and rewarding experience for any off-roader.

3. Ouray, Colorado

Ouray

Host to a variety of trails, 5 of which have been awarded Jeep’s Badge of Honor status for their impeccable maintenance and topography, Ouray is a Jeeper’s version of paradise. Trails like the Alpine Loop, a 75-mile long trail of rugged dirt roads that cut through the San Juan Mountains and the Corkscrew Gulch, a path comprised of numerous switchbacks to the 12,000 ft red soil summit, offer breathtaking panoramic views and unforgettable wheeling.

4. Your Local Trail

MTS_0077_15-04-15

The trail that is essential for everyone to drive is the one closest to them. You’ve never truly experienced a Wrangler until you have driven it the way the engineers designed it to be. For ExtremeTerrain employees, a local favorite is Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Pine Grove, PA. Offering 3,000 acres of off-roading with a variety of trails, Rausch Creek is grass-roots off-roading done right.
