Once every 10 years. That’s how often the Jeep designers and engineers get the opportunity to reinvent the Wrangler. The same is true for enthusiasts and aftermarket companies. The Jeep JL is an all-new blank canvas for us to make what we want. Even though it looks a lot like a JK, it’s not. Just about everything except the tires will require some reengineering to fit and work correctly. The new canvas also means a rare opportunity for our Dirt Every Day TV show to cover a buildup of this newest Wrangler that pretty much sets the standard for Wrangler JL buildups to come.
Jason Schieck from HANS PowerNet flew in to fit CODE1 with a PowerPack 300 and a Solar Briefcase for off-grid overlanding trips. They ended up helping with quite a bit more, including mounting the Maxxis tires on the 17×9 matte black beadlock Method Race Wheels.
