What would you like to see in the next model Jeep?

Keeping the discussion civil (in other words, no model bashing), what would you like to see included or deleted on the next model Wrangler?

I'd like:
More gearing options available to the non-Rubicon Wranglers

More wheel and tire options on the Sport (not the "haggle with the dealer" Rubicon tire swap, lol).

DIESEL engine option!!

Available lockers on the Sport

Less expensive hard top option

Thoughts?

I'd like to see a JK truck with a Hemi and a Diesel option. Rubicon model of the JK truck will have the standard JK Rubi D44 in the front, but will also have a COIL spring rear with a D60 (not a leaf spring rear like the ones overseas). Air lockers, not electric. Choice of factory gears from 4.56 to say, 5.38

I'm sure I'll think of something else......but this is a start. Get building, Jeep!!!!

oooh, and an onboard air compressor. the 05 magnum r/t I had didn't come with a spare tire, it came with a can of tire slime and an onboard compressor.

in other words, chrysler can do it, they've done it before.

ok i know you guy's are messing and some of you are down on the JKU's. but what i meant is it needs more motor, like say 50-70 more HP. better seats. ( my head rest is perfect) and how about a CB option. ( that would be nice) and oh while were at it how about, say like 8 places we can add electrical acc. for lights and other goodies. . my list is long and i could eat up a ton of band with.

diesel option is the best one ive heard. 6bt cummins? not likely but it would be awsome. of course you'd need at least a d60 for that. id settle for just a gas inline 6 again.

love the idea of taking out all the bull you don't need. make it flat tan with blk or tan wheels, flat finder flares and make it a rag top like the HMMWV, as much as i like the full doors need the half door option again, and the acc. mounting every where and wrangler addition CB from galaxy or cobra

2) foldable windshield with attachment point for rifle.
3) More drain holes.
4) D60s front and rear
5) Lockers
6) Bumpers of my choice
7) CB mount
8) High clearance skid plate
9) five point harness seats
10) Quick disconnects, non electric(I'm not lazy).
11) Lined undercarriage, interrior tub lined.
12) DPV inspired tires(withstand .50 cal BMG round)
13) Two spare tires just like the old Jeep Truck(afterall this "new" concept is not new... It's rather old.
14) lined truck bed, with strap connection points with frame mounted tow hitch.
More will come to mind
