Positive article. Lets hope the 3.6 stands up to the abuse.

Plenty of juice! It's not a srt, but I can get out of folks way just fine. I was real suprised at how good these things ride.

Just put my soft top on today which sucked. Probably a 2 person job when it's not been stretched out a bit.

Also had a 3" lift done. Still undecided what to do about wheels/tires.

They do have more power, I test drove a 2 door and 4 door, the 4 door (Sahara with hard top and 3.73 gears and auto) definitly is better then before, having owned 3 jk's I was impressed. Not gonna win any races but it doesnt feel like a mini van anymore, 5spd auto shifted nice and smooth and felt great, Now the 2 door (wrangler X with hard top, 3.73 gears, 16"wheels, auto) got with it, you might win some races with that one, lol. Not a bad setup. About time they fixed the problem the jk's had.
