PAOLI, Pa. (Dec 27, 2018) –ExtremeTerrain’s (XT) Ryan Huck orchestrated a camera crew and two bone-stock JL Wranglers during a trip to Rausch Creek Off-road park to create this Throttle Out episode comparing the new 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder Wrangler against a 3.6L V6 JL.
“If you were making a decision, just based off of a test like we did today, you would be really hard to find a clear winner.” – Ryan Huck
The purpose of their mission was to take both JL’s on the trail to see if one engine performed better than the other off-road. In this video, Ryan demonstrates the off-road prowess of both configurations, while hitting a few different types of obstacles to show how each performs at different RPM’s.
As a seasoned, technical wheeler, Ryan fights off his natural instincts, putting the throttle down on both JL’s, to provide evidence for his comparison. Even with the difference in power output and power band, both configurations were more than capable of handling the snow-covered trail and were evenly matched in their native off-road environments.
