PAOLI, Pa. (February 6th, 2019) – In the latest edition of ExtremeTerrain’s (XT) “Throttle Out” YouTube Series, XT host Ryan Huck visits Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Pine Grove, PA with his new, stock, 2.0L-powered 2018 JL Wrangler 2-door and his trusty, heavily-modified, 1998 TJ Wrangler to give them a proper shake down while comparing how each performs on the trail.
Ryan has had his TJ since he earned his license over 16 years ago and it was his daily driver until recently, when he purchased his new JL. His TJ has been through several iterations of lift kits and is functionally modified with all the supporting components needed to handle even the toughest of trails. On the other hand, his new JL Wrangler is bone-stock, for the time being, but is equipped with more technology and modern architecture, making for an interesting comparison to his old TJ on the trail. Which one would you choose to take out on your local trail?

PAOLI, Pa. (Jan 15th, 2019) – In this episode of ExtremeTerrain’s Throttle Out YouTube Series, Ryan Huck takes a 2018 JLU to Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Pine Grove, PA to test the Hill Descent control (HDC). This new feature, available in the JL Wrangler, is only intended for low speed off-road driving. When HDC is activated in 4-low, it automatically applies the brakes while descending hills at speeds below 30 MPH.While using this feature, the driver has control over the exact speed the vehicle will descend — even over bumps, stair steps, and jagged rocks.In addition to his explanation, Ryan walks through, step-by-step, how to activate HDC as well as demonstrating the feature’s capabilities in real-life situations on the trail. Using two different areas of the park for his demonstrations, Ryan tests how well the HDC can handle a variety of trails and surfaces.
