    Just Jeeps, 400 Chrysler Borrowed JL

    You may have seen our quick live feed this morning of the new Jeep JL from 400 Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Well we got her into the shop, gave it a quick detail to snap some pics. Plan on trying some different wheel and tire combos and posting those later.

    Stay tuned...

    Jeep JL from 400 Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

    17x9 ATX’s from our friends WheelPros,285/70R17 Duratracs no lift. No issues with fit on rear carrier even with the camera.

    The offset of the wheel doesn’t allow the wheel to enter the wheel well anymore under articulation. If you want to run an offset rim you are going to need much longer bump stops or flat fenders or a small 2” lift to avoid contacting the flares on a Sahara/Sport.

    (Scroll through for flex pics)

    Next up 35’s!

    So figured yesterday we wouldn’t blow up your news feed for a third time with pics of the JL from 400 Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

    We tested fitted 35” Goodyear Duratracs on 17x9 Fuel Beasts from Mht Wheels.

    Few things, rumour has it that 35’s fit on the JL’s especially the Rubicon’s. After test fitting them on this Sahara (which will need 3-4” of additional clearance to be run properly) we believe with an offset rim the Rubis will definitely need a 2” lift or extended bump stops. In the pics below you can see the front tire is lifted at the approximate height of a curb and the rear tire is basically touching the rear fender.

    Also the 5th (spare) tire will require some kind of relocation apparatus to keep the reverse camera and still be able to clear the stock bumper on Sport’s and Sahara’s. We will keep you posted on the Rubi’s once we get our hands on one of them.

    Again a big thanks to the fine folks over there at 400 Chrysler (Innisfil) for allowing us to do this for the day. If you are in the market for any Dodge, Jeep, Ram or Chrysler product make sure you go see Mitch Summers and Dan Dale’s team.

    I like the larger 2 piston front caliper, possibly it will actually stop with larger tires on it now.
    Do the rear brakes still use an internal drum for the ebrake?

    Yes, still internal drum and still lever/cable actuated - i.e. no electronic actuator.

    We've had our JL since December but I actually got to drive it as my wife was home sick today. It's funny you mentioned braking as we had some bad weather today and I had a full out panic stop today as a car spun out in front of me. I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly I came to a stop and a noticeable difference than my JK.
