Really, I believe that Jeep needs to get back to basics. I don't mind all the flavors of the wrangler. But thin the heard. Keep the Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, and *maybe* the Liberty. Dump the rest of the line.
Then produce a stripped down wrangler with beefy axle's and a factory lift for cheap. Throw the Jeep faithful that have been here all along a bone.
