coilrod I wish mine came with a stronger roll bar instead of a sport cage.
V-8 or diesel power would be a nice option with a 5000 + # jku.

wat3rdog I wish they would leave out the carpet and spray the floor with a liner. Carpet should be extra.

Some models have heated seats. While all the "hardcore" Jeepers will give you crap it's nice to have in situations when the lady is cold and you're not since they are independent controlled.

The feet heat can be now and lets you ride top down or panels out more often, but unless you are cruising on the interstate, as the driver it can get hot really quick since you pretty much have to keep your foot there. One thing I notice helps is to back the temperature control off to make the air a bit cooler but up the fan speed. The cold one still gets warmth and no 2nd degree burns for the driver!

countrybassist I can can only think of things that I can't believe come or are available on a Wrangler, such as leather seats to give one example.

bearman95 I have dual climate control in mine, came stock with it and works really good.

bearman95 I don't really see the need for the items you listed other than the grap handles and my jeep came stock with those.

Garvey I keep waiting to stumble across the factory supplied T-50 TORX head wrench.... Nothing yet.

jrohan07 On JKU the rear seats should recline more and the center seat should have brackets underneath to prevent sag.
Shorty antenna should be standard with FM/AM booster.

JeepHerz 3.73s! 3.73s! 3.73s!
Ban the 3.21s!

(From an angry "What do you mean I can't put 35s on this without making it drive like a tank" 3.21 JK owner.)
I can't believe no one has mentioned this: seats that work! You know, seats that actually slide forward, and back into position! While keeping the angle of the seat the same.... You know, the modern kind like the ones that came on my 2002 Ranger.
Or how about a rear seat that actually makes sense? Why does it still fold, and sling right back, exactly like it did on my 1998 TJ? They make seats that fold into 20 positions now- and the JK seat won't even lock?
Oh, and "Oh S**t handles".
How about a "standard" option for bedliner vs. dirt & hair velcro? I mean low pile carpet. Been confirmed you can, in fact, omit the carpet on a 2013- but no bedliner option.
06-21-2012 02:06 PM
Jeeperz Creeperz Options that would be nice from the factory, that I would pay for:

1) Locking fuel door with interior release
2) interior hood release/lock
3) an automatic rag top for the JKU that you don't have to take the windows out
4) motion sensor security option for when the tops are off or down
5) something that holds the rear cargo door open for loading & unloading besides the car washing brush I use now.

wat3rdog Keep your wheels on your jeep unless you are in the ghetto.
06-17-2012 12:43 AM
El Gringo Locking lug nuts on the wheels? Seriously? What are those going to do?
06-17-2012 12:18 AM
Hoytgirl07 IMHO I would like to see them go ahead and put bedliner in. I want to take my carpet out but dont want the bare floor without any protection. Just bought a house and no extra cash for the bedliner to be sprayed in.
06-16-2012 11:42 PM
thomslife It took me a couple of months of ownership to realize there was no ventilation to the back of my 2011 JK 4-door. In the winter it is hard to keep the inside at a even temp. That and the weak engine are my only complaints.

Mine came with a block heater... But i think every vehicle sold in Canada comes standard that way. Kind of necessary.

There's an easy, free fix for the flutter. Check this mod out:

willee51 A damn oil pan skid The oil pan on my 2012 JKU-Sport is nothing more than a powder-coated beer can

daggo66 It appears that none of you have driven topless in the rain. Otherwise the most glaring thing that has always been missing on Jeeps would have been one of the first things on the list. Inside windshield wipers! An inside wash system for those wipers would also be good for dusty trails.

Exactly. No one siphons anymore. If someone wants to steal gas they are punching a hole in the plastic tank with a screw driver. Think your stock skid plate makes it safe? Take a good look at the drain holes.

I lost the only pictures of my 80 CJ7 in the great purge. (divorce)

1) Door sills. I've never seen a vehicle without them. On order should be here today.

2) Mesh Grill Guard. One rock at the wrong time and there's a hole in the radiator. Added

3) Locking nuts. Ok maybe a dealer installed item, bought them.

4) Grab Handles. Really ?? Added

I'm sure there's more. Feel free to add and call me a whiner.

ShoreWrangler I think it shold have come with grab handles mounted to the A-pillars like my old Liberty had. Especially for a vehicle that has such high clearance. Climbing in can be a pain.

Agree that a grille guard should be standard, sill guards too. Although I did add both (just added by drake grill inserts yesterday matter of fact).

The lack of a fuel door I don't mind. That seems like one of those "jeep things" that has become almost iconic over the years. I thought about putting a door on it but the open look has sort of grown on me
