Good find. I like the "CONS" section where its says the Wrangler is a gutless thirsty engine as if it's personal. lol

"Sheet metal changes will improve aerodynamics (strong chance of major windshield and front end redesign). "

It'd be pretty funny if all the folks who are waiting for the 2012s hate the way it looks. We'll all be reading posts about the "good old days" back in 2007 thru 2011 . . . .

I was just thinking that too, lol. With all the grief we get from the non-owners that are waiting for 2012, telling us how awful our engines are.

in a Motor Trend interview new Jeep CEO Mike Manley said he want more diesels for the US market. I am hoping for the Cummins V6 for wrangler.

Well I guess that is one positive thing..... at least the current JK owners will have some one to pick on and take the heat off them.
