I wish they would put a V8 in them again

Nothing major maybe a mild 4.7 in the Unlimited. I'd trade the wj in a minute for an Unlimited V8. I have a boat & camper so
the V6 just won't cut it for me. I remember the old 304 Renegade 3 speeds that could loft the front end over a beer can right off the showroom floor. Don't ask me how I know this and it is probably the reason you can't buy one now. I sure do miss the old Renegades though. Maybe I'll write my congressman or Ralf Nader

Re: I wish they would put a V8 in them again

A V8 would be nice but I'd really like a diesel...all that torque plus better economy would be ideal for the wrangler...sadly were aren't getting that anytime soon.

I just bought a 2011, I would have waiting at least till next year for the 3.6, but I figured its only gonna get driven when I'm at the vacation home so as long as its not something I have to put up with daily I won't care.

Do you not get a diesel in the Wrangler Stateside?

We get one here in Oz, it's very popular.
