Motor1 Executive Editor Seyth Miersma takes the brand new 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon for a spin to see if the JL generation can modernize the rough and tumble off-roader. For more Jeep Wrangler: https://www.motor1.com/jeep/wrangler/ As-tested price: $49,275 The Jeep Wrangler is an off-roading icon. And though this latest and greatest “JL” generation of the vehicle might be more aerodynamic, fuel efficient, and refined than ever before, Jeep certainly hasn’t thrown the rock crawler out with the bathwater (if you’ll excuse our mixed metaphor). We recently had the hardest-core Rubicon model into our Detroit offices for a second test. And while the mean streets of Detroit aren’t exactly the perfect proving ground for an ORV monster – the potholes are big but not that big – it was a fair chance to shake down how the new Jeep stands up to daily driving duty. With a highly specified interior and no lack of amenities, the new Wrangler actually makes a fine candidate for this week’s Why Buy?, even if we do mostly keep the thing on road. But, of course, we also take pieces off, give you the ins and outs of the mundane along with the new, and splash just a little mud on the sides for good effect. Enjoy.

Made by Dynatrac, this lift was designed from the ground up to be an affordable, entry level kit that’s easy to install and one that has a primary focus on ride comfort. In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, you'll get to see Cindy and I put this lift through its paces, out on the trail and maybe more importantly, across worn out stretches of asphalt and rutted out railroad crossings. You know, just to get a better idea of how this lift feels on a daily driven Jeep. To wrap things up, we'll show you what this lift looks like on a Rubicon model JL Wrangler, running a set of 37" tires and of course, all flexed out. We hope you enjoy our test & review and we'd be grateful if you could please let us know what you think about the all new Dynatrac EnduroSport Jeep JL Wrangler 2" lift kit.
Where else better to test out the new 38" Milestar Patagonias than on the trail known as Holy Cross!? This was a seriously fun and insane trail, and very possibly the rowdiest one we've been on so far. Lots of good times, cool people, fun obstacles, and of course plenty of trail damage! Hope you all enjoy the video - I know it's a long one! Stay tuned for the upcoming Trail Damage video!
