Jeep Wrangler 4xe PHEV Gets Lift Kit and More From Mopar and JPP

The first 4xe-specific addition is a Jeep Performance Parts 2.0-inch lift kit. Why does the 4xe necessitate its own 2.0-inch lift when JPP already has such a kit for the Wrangler? We figure it’s because of the added weight of the 4xe’s electric bits (battery pack, motors, wiring) that add at least 500 pounds to the SUV’s curb weight. The JPP lift kit—technically an industry-first for a plug-in hybrid—includes four springs, four Fox shocks, front lower control arms, front and rear stabilizer links, front and rear bump stops, and all the necessary hardware to fit it to your Wrangler 4xe.

    Your car’s color could hurt or help its value, believe it or not

    Yellow? A good choice, especially for a sports car.


    Tim Stevens/Roadshow

    Avoid a gold-colored car if you play the long-game when it comes to your vehicle’s value and perhaps think about gray if you want to play it safe. Those are just a couple takeaways from new iSeeCars data released Wednesday that tracked the best and worst paint colors for a car when it comes to their value and depreciation factors.

    Upfront, it’s important to note a car’s color is not a deciding factor. In fact, there are good explainers for why some of the colors rank higher than others,

    Apple AirTags Help Locate Things You Lose All the Time, Like Car Keys

    We’ve all been there. The moment when you realize your car keys aren’t in the first, second, third, or fourth place you normally leave them.
