Whenever you sit down behind the wheel of a Jeep® Wrangler, you’re in for a good time, and the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK is no exception. Options abound with an available modular Freedom Top® hardtop as well as an easy-to-store and easy-to-open Sunrider® soft top. Available removable steel half doors provide even more options to help you achieve that classic Jeep Wrangler feeling.

Speaking of classic, few vehicles are as instantly recognizable as the Jeep Wrangler. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK features the iconic round headlamps and seven-slot grille that’s defined its look for decades. When it comes to wheels and tires, you’ve got a bevy of options to choose from, each one preserving the rugged look and off-road capability you expect.

When it comes to off-road capability, this vehicle is built from the ground up to tangle with the toughest roads and trails around. The available high-pinion Dana® 44 front axle boosts ground clearance and reduces the driveshaft’s joint angles for smooth, quiet operation. Dana 44 rear axles are available as well, and both the Dana 44 front and rear axles are equipped with Tru-Lok® electronic remote locking differentials that provide incredible traction.

Lastly, the available sway bar disconnect system lets you automatically disengage the front sway bar when driving under 18 mph in 4LO mode, with the front wheels able to then drop and compress up to 29 percent more.

We’ve only scratched the surface, and already it’s clear to see why Car and Driver said that “…the four-wheel-drive [Jeep] Wrangler JK is one of the most fun and proficient ways to explore off the beaten path or to feel the wind in your hair.”

While temperatures here in Shelby, OH haven’t quite made it to “ditch the roof and doors” levels yet, it’s never too early to start planning your next warm-weather road trip. In the meantime, we’ve got plenty of great Jeep SUVs here at Buckeye Superstore built to brave the cold.
