I say this because, this current body style to me is absolutely perfect in every way. I personally think any radical changes to the body style of screw it up. I'm betting this current body style go on for another 10 years or longer, And still sell like crazy. I think to correct Wrangler JKU Is a winning combination. The fact that the factory is running 24 seven says a lot. I personally think any major changes will screw this up. I'm not a big fan of the current Cherokee they're putting out. I actually think the liberty was a better look. I just hope they don't screw up the Wrangler.

THere are a number of things I would like to see done (many not popular on this forum) to the JK to improve the looks. I don't think anything is "as good as it gets".

There really is no place to put the spare. Can't put it under, since that hurts departure angle. Can't put it inside since it's huge. There really is no other place the spare can go.

I know I was trying to think of a different idea for the spare but i can't.... It would be neat if the spare could go up somehow like a split gate but I don't think it would work

hard top with safari rack

they need to offer a metal hard top with a sun roof, that will support a safari type roof rack. one sturdy enough to mount a spare tire, jerry cans, etc. if need be. a rear bumper designed to assist reaching the spare up top. i'd also like to see split seats in the rear with the option of removing just one seat. just hoping.

One thing I'd love on a JKU is a retractable rear window in the tailgate, much like the old Ford Bronco had.

Of course if you did that, that eliminates the ability to bolt stuff inside to the tailgate. But it would sure make my life easier when I have to haul tools/equipment around for working at my in-laws house.

minor stuff for me is that i'd like cruise control and seat heaters that would stay in the on position after start up, so when i remote start in winter seat heaters are on already. additonally i use cruise control everytime im in the car and find it stupid that its not a switch that can be on all the time

The changes you are talking about are minor and not major re design, the basic design is awesome to me.

I would like to see them make an option to have a bare bones off road edition. Minimal electrical, one that can be driven with no top in the rain and not have to worry or get submerged. Go back to your roots jeep!

IMO, they screwed it up when they added 2 extra doors. The TJ was the pinnacle of Jeep design. Now, I do own and LOVE my JK, but the TJ reigns
supreme. :hide:

For my use, this style tailgate was far and away the most useful:


Given the various dimensions of the current JKU, other than the swing-style gate, I'd love to have a modern "Willys Overland" 4x4 delivery wagon.

There was room to mount spare inside. There was room for a lay-down sleeping bed in the rear. The front seats were a 'fully tumble design'. Sure there was only 105 HP and heater/defrost was largely a matter of marketing hype...

Still, a most noble beastie ready to go anywhere, even 'paved surfaces at speeds up to 60 mph'. Brakes were pathetic and acceleration was very gradual.

They got the tail gate right though.
