My hands hit the dash, vents, wiper stalk, etc. all the time. It's annoying. It happens because the steering wheel is so close to the dash.

The shifter I never had a problem with though.

When I was shopping for my '11...the 4.56 was more money than the 4.88 and the RPM difference is only 150 RPM. So go 4.88 all day and quit worrying about it. Then no regrets.

I'm digging the option for black wheels on the base model Sport. That'll be nice on certain exterior colors.

In KY, my JKU brand new the first year was around $383 in property tax. It hurts because it falls at the end of the year when you've got Christmas and all that other jazz going on at the same time.

No, it won't. It'll be on sale in '16 as a '17 model...to not only stick with the 10 year tradition since the 1980s but also because the CEO of the company said so.

I wouldn't. I've only had two flats in my entire life and one of those was directly my fault. The money you'd spend on the warranty will buy another tire for a spare.
