Jeep flood

On Saturday, hard rains flooded streets and highways throughout Detroit, wrecking a number of newly made Jeep Grand Cherokees waiting for shipment. Some asked, was the factory flooded?

Jeep “clarifies” with 47.4

Jeep 40.4

Today’s Jeep message was 47.4, shown on a tag on the back of a Wrangler. It seems likely that we will see a larger tire package or perhaps a factory lift kit increasing the approach and departure angles, but nothing is certain.

Jeep’s 40.4 message

Jeep 40.4

Jeep tweeted an image of a sign showing a Wrangler, with an arrow pointing up, and the cryptic message 40.4 in big numbers. The code at the bottom right might read “JL 106” but it’s too fuzzy to be sure. Motor1 had a fine analysis by Christopher Smith going over the many possible explanations, while …
