Jeep Wrangler JK: Specifications by Trim

If you’re in the market for a new or used Jeep Wrangler JK, it helps to know more about the various trim levels. Whether you prefer a model with the latest features or something more basic, here’s a look at the different Jeep Wrangler JK trims.By Kate Halse – December 10, 2015
Contributors: Detroit Steel

This article applies to the Jeep Wrangler JK (2007-present).

The Jeep Wrangler is available as a basic model (Sport) up to the more luxurious Sahara model. Whether you’re searching for a new or used Wrangler, you’ll want to consider the various options. Depending on the year and trim level, you can find a Wrangler with options that range from standard air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo with a single-disc CD player to removable doors, power windows, and a multi-speaker sound system with a subwoofer.

Breakdown of Trims

Sport

The Sport, available as a two-door soft top, was referred to as the Wrangler X until 2009. In addition to the name change, the Sport ended up with YES Essentials cloth seats made from a stain-resistant material and gained a full-sized spare tire and wheel. The Sport also included an auxiliary audio input jack and a CD/MP3 player.

Figure 1. Jeep Wrangler Sport.

Sport-S

As with the base Sport model, the Sport-S was also known by a different name. The vehicle was called the X-S model until 2009, when it became known as the Sport-S. This version was outfitted with 17-inch wheels, standard air conditioning, fog lights, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, fold-down windshield, removable doors, and cruise control. Buyers also had a chance to add extras such as power locks and windows and a soft or hard top.

Figure 2. Jeep Wrangler Sport-S.

Sahara

If you’re interested in a luxury model of the Wrangler JK, then you’ll want to go with the Sahara. This trim level has a multi-speaker sound system with a subwoofer along with power windows and locks. From late 2007 through 2008, the Sahara also came with YES Essentials seats. Other highlights include gold Sahara lettering on the front fenders and fender flares that match the exterior color.

Figure 3. Jeep Wrangler Sahara.

Rubicon

The Rubicon is the model to consider if you’re planning on doing a lot of off-roading in your Jeep. This trim comes with 32-inch off-road tires along with 17-inch alloy wheels and Rubicon decals on the sides. The Rubicon’s components include Dana 44 front and rear axles, a Rock-Trac four-wheel drive system, and an electric releasing sway bar. Other options are available as extras, such as removable doors, a multi-speaker sound system, and a fold-down windshield.

Black Bear

Starting in 2016, Wrangler JK enthusiasts can opt for the Wrangler Black Bear Edition. The vehicle, named after the renowned Black Bear Pass in Telluride, Colorado, is available as a package on the two-door Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited. On the inside the Black Bear Edition comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sport bar grab handles, black accent stitching, and all-weather slush mats. The vehicle comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission with an optional five-speed automatic transmission.

Jeep Wrangler JK: Starter Modifications

Everybody has an opinion on the best modifications to make to the Jeep Wrangler. Here are some basic mods that will enhance your overall experience.By David Weitz – December 8, 2015

This article applies to the Jeep Wrangler (2007-present).

Everybody has opinions on the best modifications to make to your new Jeep Wrangler. And the cost involved will vary as much as the opinions. We’re assuming you’ve just shelled out enough money on your dream Jeep Wrangler that some basic modifications will make an improvement without draining too much more out of your wallet. So let’s talk about some simple basic modifications and upgrades that will improve your overall Jeep experience while you save up for the really big modifications down the road (like a Hemi).

Image 1. Modified Jeep Wrangler.

Let’s talk about five very simple upgrades that, looking back, you’ll be very glad you made.

Properly Outfitted Toolbox

DIY Cost – $250 – $300

Professional Cost – N/A

Skill Level – Easy; Just get online and order

What are you going to do when you’re out on the back roads and something breaks? It won’t matter how cool you look then. So what are we talking about? Very simply…

  1. Tool bag with some necessary tools
  2. Fire extinguisher
  3. Flashlight
  4. Basic spare parts
  5. First aid kit
  6. CB radio

Floor Mats & Liners

DIY Cost – $85

Professional Cost – N/A

Skill Level – Easy; Again, you just have to make the purchase

The more fun you have, the more dirt you’re going to get into. It doesn’t matter which season you prefer. Winter, fall, spring or summer will bring with it its own debris, dirt, mess and residue. You’re going to want something that will protect the interior of your Jeep and be easy to clean and hose off. Most of all, you don’t want to take much time to get ready to go back out and do it all over again.

Appropriate Rubber

DIY Cost – $800 – $900

Professional Cost – $1,600

Skill Level – Moderate; It will require some strength, heft and the appropriate tools

If you’re going to be an off-road enthusiast AND you’re going to use your Jeep to take out your best girl on Saturday night, then you’re gong to need the right tires. You’ll want a tire that will give you the best handling when you’e trashing through mud as well as give you a great ride overall. You’ll want a sidewall that is puncture-resistant as well as a tire that will give you an approved towing capacity. You’re going to want a tire that is tough enough to deliver you to the back roads this morning, back into town this afternoon and quiet enough to still use on your date tonight.

Beadlocks

DIY Cost – $650 – $850

Professional Cost – $2,000

Skill Level – Moderate; It will require some strength, heft and the appropriate tools

At first blush, this might seem like an outlandish and unnecessary expense, but consider this. When you’re out on the back roads and off-road you may find yourself needing to air down your tires in order to increase your traction. Under these conditions, if you’re not careful, without beadlocks your tire can unseat itself and come right off the rim. That adds a new meaning to the word “stuck.” A good beadlock will hold the tire securely against both inner and outer rims. That will keep you secure no matter what conditions you find yourself in.

Pro Tip

Many beadlocks are often fake while others are illegal for on-road use. Make sure the beadlocks you acquire are actually beadlocks, road legal and DOT approved.

A Winch

DIY Cost – $300

Professional Cost – $700

Skill Level – Moderate; Requires some specialized tools, some drilling and making sure the winch is placed and hooked up properly

Even though we’ve listed it last, many people will tell you that a winch is probably one of the most important modifications you can give to your Jeep. In fact, and we would agree, not having a winch is nothing short of foolish. Why? One word: recovery. What if you get wedged into an incredibly tight place? What if your Jeep rolls? What if either of those happen to your friend’s Jeep? Remember that date you’re trying to get home to tonight? Without a winch you are STUCK. A winch will get you home. Trust us…you will be very thankful you have one!

Jeep Wrangler JK: Aftermarket Modifications

Are you looking to update or increase the performance of your Jeep JK? Check this guide out to see what options are at your disposal.By Neftali Medina – December 7, 2015

This article applies to the Jeep Wrangler JK (2007-present).

Part of owning a Jeep Wrangler is being able to express yourself with it. Whether you are interested in increasing performance, changing the looks or just looking for some functionality, there are hundreds of aftermarket options available for you to choose from. This guide highlights some of the more popular modifications Jeep owners like to do on their Wrangler JK.

Aftermarket Modifications

The following modifications are some of the most popular upgrades available for your JK. These upgrades include a cold air intake (CAI), tires and a winch installation. A cold air intake provides cooler air for the engine, while bigger tires help increase the overall traction and climbing ability. Winches are extremely useful for Jeep owners looking to off-road often. Each of these modifications are easily accessible and affordable.

Cold Air Intakes

DIY Cost – $180+

Professional Cost – $250

Skill Level – Easy; Simply replace the stock intake system with the cold air intake.

Cold air intakes are usually one of the first things to be added onto an engine. Not only do they produce more low-end torque, they also increase top-end horsepower. There are several different types of intake models available, such as those developed by K&N. The K&N systems offer between 7-12 horsepower, depending on the model. In order to achieve the best horsepower results, it is recommended to use these intakes in conjunction with a fully updated exhaust system.

Powered Winches

DIY Cost – $300

Professional Cost – $350

Skill Level – Easy; Bolt the winch to the bumper and wire it to the battery.

Anyone who’s been off-roading knows of the dangers of surprisingly deep mud pits that can result in a full day of retrieval of the stuck vehicle. Winches makes it easier to pull lost vehicles out of these pits, clear debris or help move heavier objects. Basic winches can be mounted to a stock bumper using a mounting plate, while other aftermarket bumpers may have slots to hold it in place, such as the aggressive fab four bumper seen here. Some popular winches include the Smittybuilt XRC-9.5″ winch.

Tires

DIY Cost – $600+ a set

Professional Cost – $730+

Skill Level – Easy; Simply purchase the tire and, unless you have access to a tire installation and balancing machine, the service technicians will do the rest of the work.

This is the most expensive modification on this list, often costing thousands more for heavy duty tires. If you are interested in extra traction, the ability to crawl over rough terrain and a more aggressive standing vehicle, then tires should be at the top of your list. There are hundreds of sizes to choose from, but the largest a stock JK chassis can handle is 33×10.5″, which is commonly seen as 285/75/16. Larger tires will require suspension modifications to help prevent rubbing.

Pro Tip

All of these modifications, excluding the tires, can be done from the comfort of your garage and are an excellent way to become familiar with the design of your Wrangler JK.

Jeep Wrangler JK: Buying Guide

The Jeep Wrangler JK offers a mix of classic Jeep features and components with a unique attitude. The SUV is a favorite among off-road enthusiasts, but it also makes an excellent daily driver.By Kate Halse – December 3, 2015
Contributors: JeepaRoo

This article applies to the Jeep Wrangler JK (2007-Present).

The Jeep Wrangler JK was first introduced to the market in 2007. The SUV, available as a two or four-door vehicle, was a product of the new Chrysler Daimler relationship. As with most Jeeps, the Wrangler JK is a popular choice for off-road enthusiasts. When it was first introduced to the market, the Jeep had trademark features such as the Wrangler’s traditional round lights and multi-slot grille. Whether you’re considering purchasing a new or used Wrangler JK, you’ll want to read on to find out more about this Jeep vehicle.

Component Breakdown

Engine and Transmission

The Jeep Wrangler JK comes with three distinct engines. The first, a 2.8L VM Motori 428 diesel, is a four-cylinder engine. Subsequent options include the 3.6L Pentastar V6 and the 3.8L EGH V6. Many of the 2007 to 2011 JK models have a four-speed 42RLE automatic transmission. Other transmissions may include the five-speed W5A580 automatic transmission, five-speed 545RFE automatic transmission, and the NSG370 manual transmission.

Figure 1. JK engine bay.

It’s worth noting that some JK owners, particularly those with 2012 models, have experienced transmission issues. A service bulletin has been issues for the 2012 JK and a handful of other Jeep models. The fix generally involves correcting any diagnostic trouble codes and calibration improvements for the transmission control module. More information about the service bulletin can be found here. If you’re looking at a used 2012 JK or already own one, it’s a good idea to ensure that this issue was repaired if the vehicle showed signs of transmission problems.

Model Years

The JK is still in production. It was first introduced to the market in 2007 and has undergone a variety of changes and upgrades since then. If you’re considering purchasing a used JK, you’re probably interested in finding a model that matches your expectations (and budget). As with most vehicles, the first JKs had a few issues and quirks, especially the 2007 model. At least one Jeep owner notes that electric issues were relatively common among 2007 and 2008 JKs; although, they were largely smoothed out starting in 2009.

Figure 2. 2007 Wrangler JK Sahara.

Trim Levels

There are a number of available trims to choose from. For example, the Sport, or base model, is a two-door vehicle with just the basics. The X-S, renamed the Sport S in 2009, has features such as standard air conditioning, an optional premium sound system, and optional power door locks as well as windows. The Sahara is the luxury-oriented model with a multi-speaker sound system and power windows. The Rubicon is the off-road model with 17-inch wheels and aggressive tire tread.

Figure 3. 2012 JK Sport S.

Scheduled Maintenance

The exact oil change interval will depend on your specific vehicle and driving habits. Depending on the model year, your owner’s manual may recommend an oil change every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. However, if you frequently use your Jeep in extreme conditions or for off-road adventures, you’ll want to change your oil more frequently than the manual suggests. Many Jeep owners change their JKs oil between 3,500 and 5,000 miles.

Jeep Wrangler JK: How to Clean Foggy Headlights

Before revving the engine on your Jeep Wrangler, take a few moments to clean your foggy headlights.By Charlie Gaston – December 1, 2015

This article applies to the Jeep Wrangler JK (2007-Present).

It’s normal for some condensation or contaminants to build up on the surface of your headlights, especially after years of daily use, or when water becomes trapped in the headlight assembly after rainfall. While many vehicle owners have reported experiencing this condition from time to time, complaints on the whole have not been especially more common among Jeep Wrangler owners than other vehicle owners. In fact, if you own a 2007 or newer Jeep Wrangler, you might want to replace your factory bulbs with Silver Star bulbs. Not only do these aftermarket bulbs offer increased illumination and high performance, but the extra heat they produce while they are on could help to reduce condensation and fogginess.

Materials Needed

  • Latex gloves
  • Painter’s tape
  • Buffer and buffing wheel (optional)
  • Sponge
  • Newspapers
  • Water
  • Windex
  • Socks or rags
  • Tube of toothpaste
  • Headlight restoring kit

Step 1 – Save money doing it the cheap way

  • Grab a tube of toothpaste (it does not need to be new), a bottle of Windex and an old sock or rag (neither needs to be new).
  • Add a half dollar size of toothpaste onto the sock or rag.
  • Lubricate the headlight with Windex until the entire surface is thoroughly soaked. Expect some runoff, and either keep additional rags on hand to aid in the cleanup process or mask off the area before getting started.
  • Using an even, circular motion, clean the headlight using the sock or rag.
  • Continue until the toothpaste removes all signs of yellowing or contamination.
  • Add additional lubrication as needed, and continue buffing the toothpaste into the headlight.
  • Spray down the headlight using more Windex.
  • Dry the headlight for a clear, restored look.

Figure 1. Toothpaste can yield professional-level results.

Step 2 – Use a headlight restoration kit

Restoring kits can be inexpensive (about $20) or pricey ($325), depending on brand and how specialized it is. Some offer additional products and cleaning tools for top professional-level cleaning. We recommend using Turtle Wax Headlight Lens Restorer or Sylvania’s Headlight Restoration Kit. Both retail for under $20 at most auto parts stores.

Start by removing the top layer of oxidation using the compound and sandpaper provided. Add lubrication as needed, and as directed by the manufacturer. If a buffing wheel is included, use it to achieve the greatest shine. Remove the product by wiping down your headlights. Repeat the process as needed.

Figure 2. Wet-sanding headlight (Jeep not shown).

Pro Tip

It’s recommended that you tape off each headlight before getting started. Extra protection may be needed; we recommended keeping old newspapers and rags on hand.

Step 3 – Visit a local auto detailing specialist

While restoring the headlights on your Jeep is not an especially difficult job that requires professional assistance, you might want to visit an auto detailing specialist if you don’t already have any of the supplies you need to complete the job (and don’t want to purchase them from a local auto parts store or big box retailer) or are due for some major detail work. Either way, a qualified auto detailing specialist can give your Jeep that extra healthy glow you want – clear headlights and all. Here are our best tips for getting the best price and quality:

  • Choose a well-trained detailer with insurance.
  • It’s recommended that you actually ask about the specialist’s training before handing over the keys to your Jeep.
  • Expect the process to take an hour or more, depending on how much work is done.
  • Ask about specials to receive the greatest savings.

Jeep Wrangler JK: How to Wash Your Soft Top

Cleaning the soft top on your Jeep Wrangler is easy. Here’s how.By Charlie Gaston – December 1, 2015

This article applies to the Jeep Wrangler JK (2007-present).

Let’s face it. Every part of a vehicle needs some TLC every now and then. In many cases, you’ll need to visit a specialist or employ specialized tools to complete the job, but not when it comes to cleaning the soft top on your Jeep Wrangler. This durable material is easy to maintain, but should be washed every few weeks to protect its beauty, durability and functionality. Using a good brush and a high quality soft top fabric cleaner, you can clean your soft top easily and cheaply in minutes. Or, if you choose, you can simply head down to your local car wash, but you’ll spend much more in doing so.

Materials Needed

  • Soft top fabric cleaner
  • Soft top protectant
  • Scrub brush
  • Water
  • Soft top cleaning and care kit (optional)

Step 1 – Go for quality

While you might be tempted to use a window cleaner or other generic automotive cleaner on your soft top, it’s highly recommended that you don’t. For the best, we recommend using a high quality fabric top cleaning and care kit. BesTop (cleaner and protector) and 303 (protectant only) are the go-to brands for the Jeep Wrangler. Either purchase an individual soft top cleaner with an accompanying protectant, or purchase a full kit to enjoy the greatest savings.

Figure 1. BesTop is a highly reviewed product.

Step 2 – Wash your soft top

Using a scrub brush, clean your soft top starting from one end and moving to the next. Add additional product for especially muddy or dirty areas, paying special attention to areas where mud has become dry or dirt has become embedded into the pours of the fabric.

Step 3 – Visit a local car wash

Of course, you can always opt to visit a car wash if you don’t want to buy the cleaning materials or get your hands dirty. While you will notice loud noises and strong vibrations when driving your Jeff Wrangler through a car wash, the soft top will not become damaged or buckle under the pressure of the harsh spray. It’s not necessary to visit a specialty car wash facility or return to your local Jeep dealer for professional assistance. Simply visit a local car wash facility, allow the machines to do their job, and then drive away without needing to do anything else.

Jeep Wrangler JK: How to Jack Up Your Jeep

There may come a time when you need to raise your Wrangler off the ground to see underneath or change a tire. If your Jeep came equipped with a spare tire, it should also include a jacking kit.By Weston Chadwick – November 25, 2015
Contributors: Mopar

This article applies to the Jeep Wrangler JK (2007-Present).

The factory-equipped jack in your Jeep is a standard issue scissor jack. A scissor jack uses a screw to expand the arms on the jack. Unlike a hydraulic floor jack, a scissor jack is completely mechanically, eliminating the risk of jack failure due to fluid leaks. Scissor jacks are not nearly as fast or stable as a floor jack, but take up little space and work well during emergency repairs. Regardless of the type of jack you’re using, here is how to safely jack up your Jeep.

Materials Needed

  • Factory installed jack kit
  • Jack stands
  • Owner’s Manual

Depending on your Wrangler’s trim level and additional options, the procedure to access your scissor jack may differ. Refer to your owner’s manual for additional instructions or go to www.Jeep.com/Owners.

An optional base plate can be purchased online for added stability and increased jacking height. Make sure the base plate is rated for your Wrangler’s weight.

Step 1 – Park on firm, level ground

Make sure the area you choose to jack up your Wrangler is smooth and not inclined. A bumpy, soft, and inclined surface will cause the jack to sink into the ground, or lean and cause the Jeep to fall.

If your jacking up the front wheels, engage the emergency brake. When jacking up the rear wheels, make sure the transmission is in park. Using wheel chocks provides added protection against movement while the wheels are off the ground. Place the wheel chocks around the wheel that has the most weight on top of it.

Step 2 – Remove scissor jack kit

The scissor jack kit will be located in your rear storage compartment. Remove the cover (carpet or plastic) on the trunk floorboard. Remove the scissor jack by pulling it to the right. Place the jack, jack handle, jack handle extension, and lug wrench in an accessible area.

Figure 1. The rear storage compartment cover.

Step 3 – Locate the factory jacking points

The Wrangler’s jacking points are located on the axle tubes. Center the scissor jack under the axle tube corner closest to the wheel your trying to raise.

Figure 2. The jacking points under the axle tubes.

Step 4 – Jack up your Wrangler

Turn the jack screw clockwise with the hooked end of the jack handle driver. Use the extension for added leverage. The turning effort will increase once the jack’s maximum height is reached.

Placing a jack stand rated for your Wrangler’s weight next to the scissor jack on the axle tube is a great idea when crawling underneath

Jeep Wrangler JK: General Information and Maintenance Schedule

Every Jeep Wrangler has general information the owner will want to know. Read on to learn more about your Jeep Wrangler and its general maintenance schedule.By Charlie Gaston – November 25, 2015 

This article applies to the Jeep Wrangler (2007-Present).

The 2007 to present Jeep Wrangler is an all-around safe, well-structured vehicle, performing extremely well across most major crash tests, including those carried out by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In frontal crash tests, for example, the Jeep Wrangler received a five-star rating for both passenger-side and the driver-side safety. The Jeep Wrangler continues to be a consumer favorite thanks to a wide range of safety features, including windows with tempered glass, which tests show is durable enough to withstand front impact damage and some side impact damage. Safety features aside, the Jeep Wrangler is an excellent vehicle for off-roading and thanks to superior engineering, it is built to last well past the 100,000-mile mark.

2007 to Present Jeep Wrangler

Gross Weight

The weight of the Jeep Wrangler without occupants or baggage varies by transmission and model. At 4,075 lbs. for a manual transmission and 4,100 lbs. for an automatic transmission, the Wrangler X is the most “light weight” of the series. Next in line is the Wrangler Sahara. The manual transmission comes in at 4,269 lbs., while the automatic transmission comes in at a slightly higher weight of 4,294 lbs. Finally, the Wrangler Rubicon delivers a punch at 4,315 lbs. for the manual transmission and 4,340 lbs. for the automatic transmission.

Figure 1. This is a 2015 Jeep Wrangler.

Tools to Keep On Hand

While there are a number of tools you’ll want to keep on hand inside your Jeep Wrangler, should an immediate repair become necessary, here are out top picks: socket set, Torx set, vice grips, pliers, and sets of screwdrivers as well as wrenches. Other must-haves include rags, WD-40, duct tape, fencing wire, and super glue. For off-road use, it’s also recommended that you carry tow straps, saws in various sizes, tow chains, a winch, extra U-joints, radiator hoses and a jack.

Figure 2. Keep tools on hand, especially when going off-roading.

Common Problems

Like most vehicles on the market today, the 2007 to present Jeep Wrangler does come with some common problems, which may or may not be applicable to your vehicle. The common problems reported by owners include, but are not limited to, rear vehicle noise, malfunctioning auto dimming feature, faulty unit-body floor pans, faulty key fob, and discoloration of the leather seating.

Figure 3. Have your dealer complete repairs that are covered under warranty.

Scheduled Maintenance

Change your engine oil and rotate your tires every six months. If you will be using your jeep to travel off the road, have your brake linings, exhaust system and suspension system checked, starting in the first year. Once you reach 24,000 miles, begin checking your U-joints. You shouldn’t need to replace your spark plugs until you reach the 32,000-miles mark. Have all major systems inspected at that time. Continue to follow your regular maintenance schedule. Once you hit 80,000 miles, flush your engine coolant.

Common Question

Are there any “hidden” features on the 2007 to Present Jeep Wrangler?

While not “hidden” per se, some Jeep Wrangler owners are surprised to lift up the center console and find a space for pens. The top of the console also houses switches that operate the rear windows. There is also a space to mount a battery charger.
