Six Things You Did Not Know About the Jeep Wrangler JK

  • In 2007, the Jeep Wrangler JK was the only Jeep available on-sale that could boast of a solid front axle. Every other Jeep released at the time had the flimsier two-piece variant of the front axle. This made this particular Jeep tougher and more durable. In fact, this release proved to have the least number of complaints related to the front axle and the drive train.

  • The Jeep Wrangler JK is the only Jeep-branded product that is not actually a "jeep." All the other Jeeps retain the basic appearance, form, build, and engine of the original jeep-which was classed as a truck. What is the JK? It is a full-bodied SUV. In the same way that the Hummer SUV was a development of the Humvee, the JK is the SUV-equivalent of the original jeep.

  • A version of the Jeep Wrangler JK is factory installed with right-hand drive-a great rarity in the United States! This version is targeted at US mail carriers. Rural mailboxes in the United States are serviced without the deliverer leaving the car-this is for the sake of convenience as well as in consideration for the safety of the mailman!

  • An armed version of the Jeep Wrangler JK played a small role in the Marvel summer blockbuster, the Avengers. Even tougher than a Humvee in the movie, it came armed with a 50-cal. Up top and a lighter machine gun mounted in the passenger's side. That's not a bad upgrade in roles for a ride that was last seen in the B-movie Pirhanaconda.

  • The Jeep Wrangler JK boasts of being the most American of all American rides. That's not a hard claim to believe when you realize that each one of the components used to create it comes from a different manufacturer! And when you truly break it down, nearly every State from the east coast to the west is well-represented.

  • Everyone knows that every vehicle has a number of options packages called trim levels to help customers specify the kind of ride they need. Well, the Jeep Wrangler JK boast one the widest arrays of choices when it comes to trim level. "X", "Rocky Mountain", "Islander", "Mountain", "Sport", "X-S", and "70 th Anniversary" are just some of the editions or trim levels available!

  • Top Two Troubles Wracking the Jeep Wrangler JK 17 January 2013

    With a history going back as far as the Second World War, the Jeep as a brand and as a vehicle is truly an enduring American icon. The Jeep Wrangler JK is the most modern equivalent of the classic jeep. Though it retains the basic look of the old jeep, it is a different beast altogether. In fact, it is marketed and sold under a tag more common to these modern times: as full-body SUV. As far as Jeeps go, the JK was well-received, a bestseller, and an altogether reliable platform. Included here are the gripes most commonly associated with the JK so owners and would-be owners are well-informed.


    The death wobble

    This dramatically named problem is very common among owners of the 2007 edition of the Jeep Wrangler JK-so-called because it manifests itself as a dangerous and unexpected loss of control during normal driving operations. This wobbling makes it impossible to drive properly and, in some cases, has forced the Wrangler off the road. The stabilizer bars, suspension as a whole, and even the bearings have all been fingered as the responsible culprit but-in some rare cases-even replacement of all the parts listed failed to resolve the problem.

    Ultimately, all these Jeep Wrangler JK parts were cleared of the responsibility as blame was found to lie in the balancing of the wheels-the other parts only contributing to the later worsening of the problem when it occurs. The best course of action remains to be repair on the part of the Jeep dealer that sold the vehicle.


    The fuel spitter

    Though not quite as dramatic as a death wobble, yet another disturbing affliction of the 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK is its tendency to spit out fuel just shortly after refueling-specifically from the filler neck. This problem manifests at around the 45-50,000 mile mark in the Wrangler's service life. And this is not merely a tiny leak. Reports vary, but are consistent between 3-7 quarts and full gallon of gasoline being spewed out onto the ground and even onto the unfortunate person conducting the refueling.

    The only real solution is a replacement of the fuel filler, if not the entire fuel tank itself. Many dealers have proven to be receptive in this regard, but it seems to be something that is disturbingly common with this particular year.
