Standard Dana 44 on the 4-door, but optional 2WD?

OK, I'm sort of new to this (almost 2 years with my TJ), but what would be the point of having a 44 in a 2wd?

I like it though. It'll be a nice option to have if/when we have kids.

Hey look at it this way.... for all the new design haters, think of all the good deals you will find on 1 - 3 yr old like new Wranglers with low miles.

It could happen.

ill stick with my TJ and YJ. The newer style just reminds me of a hummer. AND I HATE HUMMERS!!! but i suppose that's what the public wants these days. And of course this opinion is only based on pictures so far... this might change once seen in person.

I agree for the most part, I too think it resembles a Hummer a little bit. Especially the 4-door. The design itself I'm not too sure of. It's little things really, like why did they break with the traditional door latches? And I'm not crazy about the fenders (they look entirely plastic!) and the little round dinky light on them. I do like the turn signals on the grill, a nod to the classic CJ. The slightly slanted grill I can live with, and the bumper design is an improvement (if it is metal). I also like the integrated lights in the bumper. I'm not crazy about the tail lights, they look funky.

Jeepless...for now...

i think its a pretty sharp jeep. of course it will need personal modds but i think it would do well. i think it would grow on most of you. it does resemble the gladiator a bit too much.........im an owner of a 66 gladiator, (sorry to hijack the thread) but does anyone else agree, that they should have made a modern style of the rhino grill, and make it actually resemble a gladiator?!! it almost sickens me, that they make a gladi, and dont do it right.........just my opinion

Well i think we have seen the last of the real trail rated jeeps. This thing looks wimpy, way to refined and too many electrical gadgets to make modding simple. looks to me like they tried to keep the wrangler look but totally refined the car for city slickers.

I don't understand why people think this. What is so much different? Electronic sway bar disconnects and hub disconnects are made for wheelers. What other "gadgets" are you talking about? And what's up with judging a book by it's cover? How does it look any wimpier than a TJ or YJ?

I dont get what the problem is..... IF you dont like the new design, DONT BUY IT. Buy a gently used(pun intended) Wrangler that somebody traded in or is selling outright. GEEZ, its the best of both worlds... we all know that Jeeps tend to run forever. 2006 being the last model year that some folk like... you will have alot of options in used Jeeps to choose from. We planned on keeping our 2005 for a long time, and still do... but I like the new Unlimited, so if anything that may make us trade sooner????

From Jeep.com:

"Available YES Essentials cloth seats have an easy-care surface that repels and releases dirt and looks better longer. Removable the carpet allows you to hose it out if you get too carried away."

That grammar error was on the site in case you were wondering

hurmmmm maybe the same reason a dana 70 or a sterling 10.25 is in a 2wd 1 ton?


The thing is much heavier, and it needs a better axle.

coming from a guy who has an XJ, something about that statement just seems really ironic to me...
