4-Wheeler Magazine (print edition) is reporting in their October ,2004 issue that DaimlerChrysler will release a Rubicon version of the long-wheelbased Wrangler Unlimited. This comes as no surprise to anyone who has seen this.

Wrangler (original and long-wheelbased) halftops that we mentioned in this article will be available from Bestop starting in December for 2003/2004 Wranglers and in April, 2005 for the Unlimited.

TheCarConnection.com has a review of the all-new 2005 Grand Cherokee - short version: they like it.

Simply put; Jeep sales probably will decrease each year from this time on....As most Jeeps(YJ,TJ) and Grand Cherokees were built as rugged as always...Why would some of us part with $23-$40k in this economy? It makes better sense to me to use our hard earned Cash to build our present vehicles better!!! In so much as to say "better than factory"...('cept for that awesome RUBI)...Real Jeepers (at least in our group of 20) don't buy a new one just to keep up with the Jones'.......The Biodiesel future looks promising.....Hopefully Wrangler and Liberty will benefit from that forecast...I for one don't want every Tom, Dick, And Harriet owning one just to look cool...let's not "dilute" the storied Jeep Brand....ok?
