Some dealers have told us that they can no longer order the JK, even though it is reportedly still in production in Toledo, Ohio.

According to the report, a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) notice was put out by Hyundai Mobis, the company that supplies the JK Wrangler frame. The notice, which is required by federal law, stated that 572 employees would be laid off on April 7 as production ceases at their Ohio factory where the frames are made.
