Is it difficult to improve stopping distance?? Can't you just put bigger and better breaks on?? just to get it in the 135 range.

Better brakes would be nice, but that may not be compatible with the minimum wheel diameter required for off-road use.

Widened stance with offset wheels is something I do not appreciate. JK is already too wide. Let people buy Ram Power Wagon if they want that kind of off-road machine and leave the jeep alone.

You want AWD AND have the Jeep be a capable off road machine?

I have a Power Wagon; it's too big.
I wish it was just an extended cab rather than a full-on crew.


Here's a petition for Jeep to build a diesel Wrangler. I signed it.

I have Chrysler hood lock and locked gas cap. Hood lock is trash, can be opened with a Slim Jim if you know where to poke, because they wanted a design that allowed to slam it shut, without turning a key. Gas cap is much better than trash aftermarket cap I had before. So, Chrysler have already addressed these suggestions, as much as can be expected from them.

banditman My top does not leak, I have been through a multitude of torrential
storms in the last few weeks and all is well.
07-13-2011 05:17 PM
jailguard I imagine that IF this happened people would be buying $50K Jeeps.


They add a hemi as an option thats where we'll be

rics1997 The can not do the backspacing because of state laws. Some states require wheels to be completely under the fenders

8) factory roofrack
9) diesel
10) snorkel
11) Of course more engine options.
12) Carpet delete/spray in liner.
13) Built in sump pump.
14) Rim options from 15" to 26".

They should allow us to order our Jeep the way we intend. I like these ideas and it would be cheaper to achieve what we want if they just built it that way and charged the buyer the difference in cost from standard to options ordered. Like the 3.73's upgrade for $50.

I imagine that IF this happened people would be buying $50K Jeeps.
07-13-2011 01:36 PM
MikeMTJ My list would be:

1. No more ugly plastic fenders
2. No more ugly plastic bumpers
3. No more plastic grills
4. V8 Option or Diesel

Everything else was pretty much listed above. I would have said ditch the 3.8L, but they took care of that.

For the New Wrangler, I Wish Jeep Would...

1. Use stock wheels with 4.5"-4.75" backspace to begin with AND move the wheels out to be flush with the stock fenders. How hard is that?

2. Make 4:10 gears optional for all models.

3. Bring back the khaki-colored top like the TJ had.

4. Engineer a top that doesn't leak like a sieve.

Just my wish list for a few minor things that would ultimately save me money and hassle in the aftermarket world.
