Like Tony, I live in Australia and am keen to know if there are any plans to release a Turbo diesel RHD TJ Wrangler in 2004, or if there are any workshops out there that do diesel conversions.

I noticed no mention of a Scrambler. DC is behind again.

Like Tony I would LOVE to see the TJ Rubicon in RHD format.
Surely between the UK & Aust there would be demand enough....

Dave,

Motor trend has not updated their forcast info in a while. The Scrambler is suppose to be out next summer as a 2005 model, which is why you are not seeing it listed yet. Dealers still have no clue about this vehicel. Not surprising as most dealers did not know about the Liberty until 1 week before it was in the show rooms.

As far as the future (and this is still speculation), the Wrangler will probably be unchanged thru 2007. After 2007, we might see some big changes (no more removeable doors, non-moveable windshield). Many of the changes that will occur will be based upon safety requirements.

The 2005 Scrambler (name is still not certain), is likley to be similar, if not identical to the TJL that is now produced in Egypt. If you have seen the pictures in Truck Trend, you will notice a roll bar in the back, and the hard top is different than the one shown at Camp Jeep a year ago.

What I'm looking forward to seeing in the Wrangler is a Rubicon with Right Hand Drive (I live in Australia) along with ABS Braking and a Diesel motor.
