Look through the 2012 posts, someone put up the Chrysler stat sheet as a pdf Monday, it has the dimensions, ratios and ratings for the whole model year, although some are listed as "anticipated"

Here's the guide. You'll need Adobe PDF Reader installed to see it.

Towing capacity remains unchanged at 2000 for SWB and 3500 for LWB, sadly. I was kind of hoping it'd go up-Toyota manages to get 5000 out of the FJ Cruiser, I'd like to see the LWB Wrangler managed 4000.

Walked through the Jeep dealer tonight wow 2010-2012 Jeeps instock and well from what I saw for prices there is NO WAY Jeeps losing money, $38-$42 grand for Wranglers a tin can on 4 car tires ! ! !

No thanks, I can buy a NICE 350/3500 series diesel for that and have a real truck ! ! !
Jeep can stick IT ! ! Heck I bought an awesome RAM diesel for $20K and lasted me 257K-miles !

I can get an 10' RAM4500 with just 15miles with 7ft flat bed, Out the door for $42K a JK-8 is going to cost about $45K and won't do nearly the stuff the 4WD 4500 will . . .

Dude, you have GOT to find a better dealer. Yours is screwing the hell out of you. Thai hookers don't get screwed as hard as this guy's customers, apparently.

To get a Wrangler to $42000, that's a Rubicon Unlimited with every single option box ticked. Dual tops, nav system, leather interior and fancy expensive colours.

I can make a Ram 3500 almost $100,000 if I want to, but most aren't anywhere near that much. Conversely, dealers that don't suck like yours carry Wranglers more in the $25,000 range.

Here are a few cell phone pictures of the 2012 Jeep JK Unlimited at Northwest dodge in Houston. I'm really interested in seeing what the Jeep Wrangler Truck specs are going to be. Is the wheel base going to be the same as the unlimited?

I know they have the conversion kit out now, but it doesn't seem to have any room for a back seat. Any info on the truck would be awesome.
