model year differences?
noob question here. anyone know what has changed with each year of JK?
at some point the soft top changed design.
i know there were other small changes.
warranty options for each model year?

have searched here and around the web with no luck

What is different? Just the top, or more than that...

Wish the answers to these things were in the FAQ sticky - would be quite handy later on when everyone starts buying JKs used!

The biggest changes are with the top's!
In 2009 they changed the front latch position on the hard top and in 2010 they changed the soft-top connection to the door surounds.
Everything else has been very minor and would still be interchangeable with all four years of JK!

My ’08 steering stabilizer was leaking so I want to the Dealer and looked at the 2010s on the lot and noticed they have a different bracket and a different stabilizer. The part department didn’t have the “old” stabilizer and I would have had to purchase a new bracket and stabilizer to replace my broken one.

I know in the ‘09+ the small alignment hole behind the gas cap cover is off by 90° and so the Mopar gas cap cover is not interchangeable.

I hear the 2010 automatic cuts fuel to the engine during deceleration (to increase increases gas mileage).

A list of all of the changes would be nice. :)

i was really looking for specifics. i heard that traction control was only an option on '07, after '08 its standard. don't know if that is true, but stuff like that. i am in the market and not in any rush. the TJ forum has a sticky with everything you could want to know, cant find any info on JKs.

The time now is 02:56 PM.
