Interesting point on the power top... the fucking 4k upcharge is just frankly robbery, but I am actually really interested in that top/removable side windows, which areDetroit wrote: ↑Thu May 16, 2019 9:29 pmThere's been a lot of complaints of wind noise. My boss (who hired me) recently started in his gig from Ram. He thinks the JL shouldn't have been marked salable with the current wind noise. The JL was such a quantum leap over the JK that he thinks nobody pushed hard enough to justify the higher price of the vehicle. It has to do with the removable roof. Drive one with the power top, and it's WAY quieter because it's not intended to be removed and can seal properly.max225 wrote: ↑Thu May 16, 2019 9:21 pm
Well I am being 100% honest here, I loved 90% of the vehicle. To me that is a DD issue. Braking/steering/accelerating etc are all fine. Wind noise and being tossed around on the freeway during windy conditions wasn't. I don't remember anywhere near this issue on the suburban I took on the same route, so the whole "boxy" argument goes out the window.
Sub 65mph and no headwind the JL is completely fine, and the porta potty roof is MORE insulating than the one in my M3 which is REALLY WARM to the touch even through the insulation, the Jeep in 105F direct sun was luke warm.
The being tossed around on the freeway is due to the archaic solid front axle. There's nothing you can do about that without going IFS, which would make people I personally think IFS isn't the hindrance it once was and should be reconsidered. I may or may not get anywhere with that.
The tossing around is due to side winds not solid axle. This thing drives straight as an arrow on most shitty roads etc. I have 0 qualms about ride quality in the jeep, as well as steering in normal situations.
All my qualms are around wind/windnoise and having not driven the rubicon yet, likely MPG on that model.
