**JT/J8 Sector**

Don't know bout you boys and gals, but I am JT obsessed. I would literally donate a kidney for one - no joke.

I couldn't find any threads about updates on present development of the truck by Jeep, so I figured I'd put one up with hopes that a collective of information will spawn.

I know there are websites, but those are websites...more traffic here and ppl to shout out any valid info they come across.

************************

Not sure if it was in the asinine April fools issue of JP mag(i'm away from the mag), but JP mentioned in a recent issue that Chrysler was going to manufacture a limited quantity. (now that i'm typing this, it feels like hoax).



My bad if there is a thread already like this one I missed in my search...

AEV may get help from Jeep on building the JK 2 door truck, this would cause more of the truck on the market at a lower price. ref allpar.com under news and rumors

You did not? 3 on D at each node you have at all times. Set up a swing team of 2-3 people at a strategic point so that they can respond quickly to incoming Alliance. Have druids/rogues ninja a 3rd or 4th. Once you have Blacksmith, Farm, and Lumber Mill. Set swing team on the path where all 3 roads intersect. Wait. Or have your druids/rogues take another node. This is when battlegrounds were fun. Eating babies for 12+ hours a day for 11 weeks to get a pointless title in game was almost worth it.
Spam? I think... maybe?

Yea, JP mag has the pretty much the same stuff as jalopnik. They took out the 2.7L turbo diesel out for a spin. Man, wish I had 50k to spend on a vehicle.. ..........

Chrysler says if there is a demand for the J8 for American government sales, an EPA-compliant version could be built in the United States.
