I think it is based on all the non-off road yupppies and mall crawlers who buy them and do not understand the heritage or Jeep community.
It just did not feel like a jeep to me, I could
not imagine wheeling the Jk. I'll say it again, the Jk is a very nice "car" IMO. I owned a Yj for 4 yrs before my Tj and I wasn't like wow thing think is so much different but the the Tj, it was a very big change from the Yj pretty much a whole new design, but it still is a jeep. The Jk was so like driving a regular car I'm sure if you put the v6 in the Tj you would feel a difference as far as power, I did not look at the Jks weight but it seemed very heavy. I really don't know what Chrysler should of done, things have to change but.... dunno...... bring on the 12 (2012)
