If I owned jeep.

1. Seperate from Crystler go to GM as parent company. Utilize GM motor equivalent for all models.

2. Wrangler - Drop the 4 door. 3.7L V6 standard, optional 5.7L, 6.0L and 6.4L V8 options. base model and up get auto windows, locks, and mirrors like the current sarah's.

3. Grand Cherokee - keep as is, it's new.

4. Liberty - replace name with Cherokee and base on the current jk 4 door Wrangler without a removable top.

5. Patriot - Keep the same, I have one....its a nice little DD

6. Compass - Dead

7. Truck - Use JK 2 door as base idea with same engine options for wranglers.

8. Wrangler/Cheerokee/Truck - all get rubicon edition. Rubicons get 5.7L V8 standard option 6.0L and 6.4L.

I guess I should expand apon this some . . . The Jeep pickups should be brutally strong and powerful.

The Wrangler pickup "Comanche" 4.7 V8 standard / 5.7 V8 optional - 4spd auto or 5spd Man. - 3.55s standard / 3.73s optional. Payload 1500lbs / Towed load 4500lbs.

The Wagoneer pickup "Gladiator" 5.7 V8 Standard / 6.1 V8 optional - 5spd Auto or 6spd man. - 3.73s standard / 4.10s optional. Payload 2500lbs / Towed load 7500lbs.

Want a 4cyl or 6cyl pickup buy a RAM ;-) Jeep trucks at "My Jeep" are setup for workhorse / play time duty.

Almost everything you said, only not drop the 4 door. I like the 4 door a lot especially when its lifted and has bigger tires. I would drop the 2 door if anything, its FUGLY if you ask me. I feel like im the only one that believes that though haha.

Also, a dirt bike

Ya I have to re-think my plan too tho I personally HATE everything and anything 4dr, I think I Keep the 4dr and 2dr Wrangler and add a pickup.

Then ditch the Commander / patriot / liberty we don't need a a half dozen 4dr SUV's .

1. Wrangler 2dr / 4dr / Sporty pickup - "Comanche" or " brute" .

2. Gand / Baby grand.

3. Wagoneer / Muscle truck "Honcho" or "Gladiator".

Still sticking to V8's in the 2 trucks offered in 2 versions . . . The reason for the Baby grand and 4dr wrangler to co-exist is you have 2 options for tiny SUV a car-ish one and a truck-ish one.

The grand would the luxury SUV as where the Waggy would be the family SUV . . . The trucks would be your tow rigs / toy haulers lil'truck would be your ATV/Sled towing rig and the Big truck would be Race car / Wheeling Rig towing unit.

Yet when unloaded both trucks will slam ya back in the seat smoke the tires and rocket 0-75+mph.

This all if Chrysler said "here is Jeep do as you wish" I would also do the pickups like a Viper type I wouldn't exactly stock a ton of them 2 of each at every dealership . . . Now if I were to "Own" Jeep I'd have a different plan.

Mike

Except that the 3.7 has less low rpm torque than the current 3.8.

Easily counter acted by a ring and pinion swap

Jeep Patriot: Basically the same as the 2011s. Upgraded World Engine, rework the suspension for a bit more travel and offer FDII on the manual, and replace the CVT with the 8- or 9-speed auto. 2L diesel and 2.4L engines.

Jeep Cherokee: Wrangler Unlimited-based mid-size, basically a recreation of the old Cherokee, just BOF now. 3L diesel, 3.6L V6.

Jeep Wrangler/Unlimited: same as it is, just with new engines and a better automatic. 3L diesel, 3.6L V6.

Jeep Grand Cherokee:same as is now.

Jeep Gladiator: Stretched Unlimited wheelbase, single-cab and a pickup bed. Basically the same as the concept. 3L diesel, 3.6L V6.
Though I agree with the ORIGINAL Compass concept. Making it into a Rally AWD vehicle would be pretty awesome.

I don't know if anyone has posted this like, but it is interesting: open top Panda based Jeep (interestingly about the size of the ORIGINAL Jeep-- time to get back to roots)

http://www.jpmagazine.com/featuredve...zon/index.html

I like the idea, but the styling is still much to modern. Please guys return to some semblance of the original look.


It could be pretty good on gas, but don't expect 38mpg with offroad tires etc (notice how the high mpg of the current Compass really drops by the time you get to the 'trail rated' one)

Yep times have changed, Ya use to be to go farm n fleet or tire shop they would have them Biasply Mud lugers or the bias Snow grips some times both . . . There hasn't been a tire shop that has stocked them in 10yrs and could no longer order them 2yrs ago.

Its been long enough none of you may even remember the tires in which I refer too

I think this "Street Jeep" movement isn't just Jeep that has gotten "tamed" Jeep was the last to "street up" Now people are taking Notice ? ? ? I saw this coming 10yrs ago ! ! What once was ain't no more !

All is not lost.
http://www.kaiserwillys.com/category...ts-accessories

I got a flat on my CJ2A and needed to replace the tube. I figured, probably a tire store might have it or get it quickly. No go. Finally had to mail order... they are still made but no tire dealer would even try to get one.


[I was already driving when radials first went mainstream in the late 60s. I put a set on my Sunbeam Alpine and was amazed at how much better the radials were at handling concrete road seams, on the bias plies every time I changed lanes across a seam the car would jump sideways.]

drop the
Rubicon badge.

come up with a next generation variant for the Wrangler, keep the base, sport, x, and sahara packages, and the premium package will be called Jeep Wrangler 'Moab.'

Moab will come with a lift, big tires, heavy duty axles, and V8 Hemi.
