    Jeep® Introduces New Gorilla Glass Option For Wrangler & Gladiator Models:

    Guess I must just be lucky. We even have a rock quarry 2 miles or so from my house. Dump trucks on the roads all the time. I do long highway trips around Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Commute to work in bumper to bumper traffic. Play around off road at times. I've never had one...

    Jeep® Introduces New Gorilla Glass Option For Wrangler & Gladiator Models:

    4 Wranglers and 2 Gladiators and I've never had a cracked windshield. Ever. But for $95 I would have ordered this option anyway! Can't hurt I guess. I wonder what kind of acoustic change it'll make to the interior sound quality of the audio system and noise overall?

    BREAKING: Jeep® Teases Gladiator Rubicon 4xe In Latest Facebook Photo:

    Gladiator is apples and oranges from Wrangler. What works for JL doesn't work for JT. JT is already pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable GVWR for a mid size truck now, so adding several hundred pounds more weight is going to make it really hard for them to maintain any respectable...

    5th Gen DT body on HD trucks

    I agree with you. A lot of the Ram 2500 trucks with the Cummins engine are in the 2,000 lbs. payload range. That's 1/2 ton truck territory these days. Not acceptable in my opinion. The 6.4L Hemi is also getting long in the tooth. 429 lb/ft of torque was good a decade ago. Today it's not...

    The Supercharged HEMI Era Might Be Coming To An End, But Not Performance Says Dodge//SRT:

    The Ram HD needs a Hemi upgrade. Granted that's the "truck" version of the 6.4, but it's coming up on a decade old now and it's falling WAYYY behind what GM and especially Ford are doing. The media towing reviews with the 6.4L in the Ram are, well, let's just say "not good" to be kind.

    The Supercharged HEMI Era Might Be Coming To An End, But Not Performance Says Dodge//SRT:

    I still think it's truly sad when what consumers truly want and what automakers are going to build are two different things. That should never happen, but insert government influence and.....

    CAUGHT: 2022 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon With Bigger Tire Offering:

    I hear people say that but I don't see how. The Bronco is a carbon-copy of the Wrangler, with Ford tweaks just to avoid being sued. Everything down to the way the hard top panels latch is the same. They didn't even go the extra step to use a straight axle in the front. The interior looks...

    NOT TRAIL RATED: 2022 Jeep® Wagoneer Series III Off-Road:

    I like it. I think it actually looks pretty good.

    2022 Gladiator?

    I take it that's a no. :) Well, I'll cross my fingers and keep hoping for those towing mirrors........

    5th Gen DT body on HD trucks

    Seriously? If that's true, then there's no sense in waiting. I might as well try to buy one now.

    5th Gen DT body on HD trucks

    We are now in the third model year of the new DT body Ram, which from my experience is a huge upgrade over the old DS body. Yet, the 2500/3500 trucks are still using the old and outdated platform, with "lipstick on the pig" to make them resemble the new trucks somewhat. Anybody know when Ram...

    Diesel Power Wagon

    All of this is 100% true, and has been continually discussed by engineers being interviewed by auto media outlets over the years. Yet, Ford offers the Tremor package on Super Duty, with 35s, a winch option, rear locker, front LS differential, lift, etc. etc......AND your choice of a gas engine...

    What comes after the KL?

    2.4L naturally aspirated "Multi-Air".

    What comes after the KL?

    I don't know, but I hope it's more reliable than KL has been. We bought one new in 2018 and it's been drinking oil as fast as gasoline ever since. And the steering column is making an awful popping noise when you steer now at 42,000 miles. And there's been a multitude of TSBs and recalls on...

    2022 Gladiator?

    Any rumors floating around about changes to the Gladiator? We're 90 days or less away from seeing the order guide, if history repeats itself. I'm REALLY hoping for real truck mirrors instead of the Wrangler mirrors they slapped on it, maybe some interesting new paint colors, and I'd love to...
