    Do the rear brakes still use an internal drum for the ebrake?
    Literally night and day difference, rotors are larger too. Iíll test fit a 15 but highly doubt it will fit, even the 17ís were tight once we added the wheel weights.

    There are not many factory wheels I personally like. You would think by now they would make something remotely nice.

    Wow, I’ve never seen one in my area, and I work at a dealer, lol.
    Stock wheels are pathetic, looks much better with either wheel shown, but ya, needs a bit of a lift. Thanks for posting though, I really like the new interior.

    Dang so still the same. Ebrake that works for 2 weeks at best after an adjustment. At least chrysler is noticing some of the complaints. 2 biggest draw backs to a stock jk, the brakes suck and the lights suck.

    With how close 15s were on the jk I wouldn't be surprised if they don't fit over a larger roter and dual piston caliper.

    looks like front and rear 44's.

    do all models come this way now, or is there still the d30 up front on most models?

    I like it, the front fenders are a lot nicer than the JK and more proportionate, the little bit more curve to the grill looks good too
    Are those "CV" style front shafts? Hmm if they're stout enough that's an improvement

    I like the the front end. It looks longer and sleek.
    I would like to see a 2 door with that set up, Top off and on 33's.

    There are still light and heavy duty options like before. It'll vary by model but both front and rear axles are beefed up across the board in a few different ways as well as narrow and wide track setups.

    Yes, some models have aluminum knuckles. They're used for weight savings and better performance (i.e. less unsprung mass).

    There is a new full-time awd case that is optional and for that application you have CV joints. The AWD case still has 4hi locked and 4lo. Rubicon still has 4:1.

    Shipments are in full swing so you should be seeing them in local dealers very soon but they may not last long. 3.6L auto and manuals first, with electric stop/start. Then what's being referred to as "mild hybrid" BSG engines as well as the 2L turbos. Diesel are late launches. I love the 8spd transmission. The 6spd manual is new and the shifter won't wobble on you anymore like every other jeep for the last 75 years.

    Ride is significantly improved across the board. Better fuel economy. Fancy gadgets. Feel free to start the "hating" about how real jeeps don't have this or that... but it's the 21st century. Yes, they do haha. As for lighting, late model JKs have had an LED option and JL does as well but even the base headlights are better than before (finally!?!?!)

    With about 2500kms on the clock my wife is really liking ours.
