Not exactly any of the above...

but here is what i would do:

1. have to have small cute suv's to offset bad mpg gov't bs... so at least design something that is not a clone of the rest of the market place.

2. Put the new ram diesel in the wrangler..

3. Come out with Jeep pickup.

4. Grand Cherokee hybrid.

Go to a full on independent suspension and offer factory lift kits that allow for warranty work (utilizing black box technology)!

1. Better paint jobs, and have at least one shade of blue body color per year.
2. Upgrade the stock speakers and have at least one USB port on every model.
3. Make a stock grill screen for every Wrangler model.
4. Engineer an easier soft top to take on and off.
5. Have them make me a one-off, factory produced maize and blue U. of Michigan edition Rubicon.

For the wrangler, I'd keep the JK pretty much intact and evolve it over time. Probably stay with solid axles. For Jeep in general, I'd make two divisions, one just plain "Jeep", that had the wrangler, and a bigger SUV similar in style but three row seating and no compromise off road drivetrain (think Jeep Rescue), plus a smaller baby wrangler, but that still has solid off road cred. Would probably also make either the JK or baby wranger in a pickup version. Then another Jeep "lite" division that made a few vehicles that were more focused on fuel economy, mass appeal, and overall costs.

3 and 4 are totally unnecessary.

You guys are a confusing bunch -_- all the hate on IFS and its pretty popular atm.

I would want a waterproof interior with all the electronics and head unit sealed or at least having a nice cover like those on boats. Add a V8 option and maybe increase the towing capacity as well.

Honestly there is not much I'd change with the JK. :)

full tilt independent is amazing. but 2 problems; you're not going to get a full-tilt version from the manufacturer and modifying is expensive and complicated. Jeep people like to tinker so solid axles are perfect.

For the wrangler I would eliminate all plastic trim, go back to vinyl seats (easy to wipe off after a rain) make carpet or bed liner options. Truly waterproof the interior.
