    two things of note:

    1. it doesn't get a RockTrac tcase...standard 2.72 gears in the case.

    2. Rear locker works in 4-hi. something new for Jeep.


    1 is a bummer to me, especially calling it a Rubi. but I understand why. or, I should say, I think I can guess why. I assume that the 4:1 low won't handle the horses. chain stretch would likely be an issue. sucks, but at the same time, most people will probably want an Atlas anyways.

    2 is awesome. especially for fun in the snow and sand. no more having to modify the locker to work. good job, Jeep!

    I saw a quote from a marketing guy who was asked why they're doing it. he said something along the lines of "our customers are already doing it" haha. again, they're listening. but they're probably seeing $$ as well. we will see how much this one sets the price at. $60k+ easy, I'm sure.

    I bet it's a $8-10k premium on top of the cost of the Rubicon.

    And yeah, I expect many will end up with an Atlas.

    If you can't fix it with a hammer or duct tape you have an electrical problem

    Exhaust dumps was a nice touch. Love the factory half doors. Doubt it's going to be in the 2 door. Now I'm torn...electric torque .. or v8 rumble.

    somone on Instagram was like "Jeep's getting bipolar: they have ads about enjoying off-roading in the pure quiet, and now they're advertising off-roading with the roar of a v8!"

    I'm really excited to see what Jeep has been doing as a brand. Between the new GW, the electric and V8 Wranglers, they should have a huge 2021. Of course I'm biased as a former Chrysler group employee
