ABOUT JEEP WRANGLER JK ’07-‘17
The 2007 model year was a complete redesign, with now a two- and four-door model. The new JK platform replaced the now 10 model year old Jeep TJ Wrangler. The new Jeep Wrangler JKs are known as JK Wrangler (2-door) and JK Wrangler Unlimited (4-door). The new models were in instant hit with the Jeep audience and a whole new group of customers were drawn to the longer wheelbase Unlimited. There was only one engine available, the 3.8L V6 which had enough horsepower for the two-door but was somewhat under powered for the four-door model. In 2012 the engine got updated to a newer 3.6L V6 with more horse power. Luckily there are many aftermarket products available to give the Jeep additional power, like intakes, chips and exhaust systems. The new Wranglers saw production numbers shooting over the 100,000 for the first time in decades.
