Now I don't have hood flutter so to speak, but when meeting semi trucks on two lane roads my hood will jump up about 2 inches when you are blasted with that wall of air that encompasses a semi truck and trailer. Not really a big deal, but a design flaw by jeep that has been going on way too long. Their engineers need to spend more time on the wrangler forum and less time on the golf course, or in Vegas on so called business trips. They should contract somebody like JIMBOX, and I bet for about 100K he could solve their hood flutter, overheating trany, and skid bar problems!
I think they've already solved the tranny problem--NEW 5/6 spd auto with the 2012/w O/D, but I'm afraid they will still issue the stupid 3.21/3/73 gears, but we'll have to wait and see if the JKUs can cruise in O/D, without all the downshifting--time will tell-
I think they will have a different setup for the skidplates on AUTO's, cause they're much bigger than the infamous 42RLE, that someof us have !!
Again, time will tell-
