Video: ExtremeTerrain Reveals 2018 JL Wrangler Turbo Project

Y’know Jeep guys can’t leave well enough alone, so why would anyone expect the gurus at ExtremeTerrain to leave this pristine 2018 JL 2-door Wrangler “as-is” from factory? Pfft! Get real! As they said, “Throttle Out” host Ryan Huck was seeing that his TJ Wrangler was getting “a little long in the tooth” and from a practicality standpoint, making it no exactly the best choice for a daily driver—especially with his long commute.

To add bring a little civility (and some appreciated creature comforts_ to his daily routine, Ryan recently scooped his 2018 JL 2-door equipped with 4-cylinder turbo-mill and 8-speed automatic. He’ll explain his choices and provide you with an introduction in ExtremeTerrain’s newest “Throttle Out” episode.

Here’s the official press release:
PAOLI, Pa. (Oct 24th, 2018) – A 4-cylinder automatic Wrangler doesn’t sound like the most interesting topic for ExtremeTerrain’s ‘Throttle Out’ video series but add a turbo and a couple more gears to the 2-door JL platform and it makes for an interesting introduction video. Ryan Huck recently took delivery of his 2018 Sting Gray JL Wrangler Sport S and he is excited to share it with the world! While his rig is still in stock form, Ryan takes you for a walkaround and test drive, explaining his choices in drivetrain and options, as well as his plans for future modifications. Is his long commute a viable excuse for choosing the slush-box over a manual? You decide!
