The CJ-inspired Jeep Wrangler got us here, and in its Willys Wheeler guise the spirit of America rolls on.As the many spy pics have shown, FCA’s Jeep division is working hard to replace its current Wrangler within the next few months. Despite the economic downturn between 2008 and 2010, Jeep and Jeep Wrangler sales have been consistent bright spots for FCA, along with – of course – Ram trucks and, uh, Ram trucks.With a new Wrangler around the bend, it’s worth taking a look at the existing model. Connected to either a six-speed manual or ($1,400) five-speed automatic, the engine moves the 4,000-pound (loaded) Wrangler with measured confidence. With that, we say goodbye to 10 model years of Wrangling with the current model. While still three weeks from the start of summer, it arrived in practical terms with the Memorial Day weekend.

Three arrested, 6 sought in San Diego Jeep Wrangler theft ring
Conover said San Diego County was hit with a rash of Jeep Wrangler thefts in the summer of 2014. SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Three alleged members of the Tijuana-based Hooligans motorcycle gang were in federal custody Tuesday in connection with a sophisticated scheme that resulted in the theft of more than 150 Jeep Wranglers in San Diego County since 2014. Then, during the theft, the Hooligans disabled the alarm system, programmed the duplicate key using a handheld electronic device, and quietly drove away without notice. Based on the surveillance footage, law enforcement agents sent Chrysler a list of about 20 Jeeps that had recently been stolen in San Diego County and asked whether anyone had requested duplicate keys for the stolen Jeeps. The defendants would obtain the vehicle identification number in advance and managed to obtain secret key codes, which allowed them to create a duplicate key for that particular Jeep.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, the brawny coddlerBEHIND THE WHEELmylesKORNBLATT firstname.lastname@example.orgThe classic styling of today’s Jeep Wrangler is part of a slow design evolution from its WWII founding father. The Wrangler Unlimited offers a longer wheelbase so it can fit four full doors, and everything is nicely color-coordinated. For those newly minted weekend warriors, the best Jeep features are actually underneath the skin. A basic two-door Wrangler starts around $25K, and a four-door Unlimited Rubicon Recon like our test vehicle is over $44K. But while the appearance is old fashioned, those who haven’t checked out a Wrangler in a while might be in for a surprise.
