The long-awaited redesigned Jeep Wrangler will be hitting the streets (and not-streets) soon; it’s slated to start arriving dealerships in January. You can read our full First Spin test-drive report here, but there were so many cool details and factoids about the new Wrangler “JL” that we couldn’t fit them all into our original review.
