    Default 2011 Jeep Wrangler Review

    I know there are a bunch of offroad enthusiasts here. This is a nice Jeep review by Autoguide.


    2011 Jeep Wrangler Review

    As the ‘need-to-be-somewhere’ crowd heaved shovelfuls of snow in back-busting unison to create exit paths for garage-stranded vehicles, the smiling ‘just-want-to-have-fun’ driver of a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon left tire tracks across a snow-congested driveway. It wasn’t the only time people gave an envious nod. Shifting from two-wheel drive to 4WD high at 40 mph instantly upped the SUV’s traction quotient, enabling the Wrangler to cut through choppy snowdrifts as two sedans and a pick-up truck became stuck on a snow-swamped expressway over the winter.

    Offered in three trim levels—Sport, Sahara and Rubicon—the latter (our test model) is outfitted as the off-road warrior. Its two-speed transfer case provides a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio, whereas the Sport and Sahara versions have a part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. The Wrangler Rubicon also includes electronic locking front and rear differentials, an electronic sway bar disconnect, and 32-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires.

    yup lol 18 inch alloys lol plastic bumpers, but the electric disconnect sway bars are a sweet feature and there pretty good for offroad out the door, just not maintenance only real fun feature with wranglers is going to a lake,beach, and or cottage with the top down.

    junk. minivan engine, no balls no low end torque not even close to as good as the 4.0L
    the front sway bar disconnect connector is right at the front bumper and if that gets knocked off no more sway bar disco or axle lock and in the unfortunate event that the wires touch the jeep will no longer shut off
    dont lift it because it will death wobble
    oh and in 20,000kms the front end will fall out
