Have you let Chrysler/Jeep know. or have you just posted here?

Update on the Jeep Wrangler; Chrysler/Fiat are having 250, VM 3.0 v6 Diesel engines built a day by Vector, for the US. They should be an option Late 013 or 014.

With the fulltime option, you got me. That and the hose-able interior would make me part with my hard-earned cash.

Would definitely be nice to also see a Factory CB option
Also , do away with the Unibearing on the front axle and go back to locking hubs

I'd like to see real gauges again, not dummy lights. Real gauges that show my actual oil pressure, actual coolant temp. Maybe even put trans temp in the EVIC.

I remember people who worked for dealerships claiming they had inside info from Chrysler stating with absolute certainty the Pentastar was gonna happen in the 2011 Wrangler, which never happened. So, I'm sorry to ask, but where exactly are you getting all this information from?

Don't hold your breath for a diesel Wrangler this generation. But the MY2013 Grand Cherokee is confirmed to have a 3.0L VM Motori diesel for the North American market.

Diesel. V8 option but doesn't have to be a Hemi.

Pickup; 2 door version just like the Brute, and a 4 door version just like the Brute Double Cab, hell just buy the naming rights from AEV and make it the Wrangler Brute. Also an Unlimited length 2 door like the LJ's.

Factory option carpet delete and add spray in bedliner.

Move the mirrors back to the windshield bracket please.

Rubicon gets 33's

No more 3.21's.

Metal bumpers would be nice.

Bring back Rescue Green and Sahara Tan, add a couple color options that are flat colors.

More backspacing on factory wheels so we aren't forced to buy new wheels or sketchy wheel spacers when we get non donut sized tires.

Factory black wheel option for any trim level.

Factory inverter option with 110V plugs in center console and by the rear gate.

2012 JKU Black, Soft Top. Next mods are a 2.5" lift, 35" Tires, and either 4.10 or 4.56 gears.

ALL of this! Seriously, this is what I want, but I want the styling to go more retro. Like bring back the willys style flat fenders. Also a 2-piece door option that offers a steel lower half, but the upper half is fiberglass (painted or rhino-lined to match the body color, NOT the top) with sliding glass windows.

One important issue to remember regarding our wish list.
Regulations.
The Wrangler is sold in Europe. Those plastic fenders, bumpers and grill are a direct result of European pedestrian impact standards. It makes sense for an automaker to use as many standards parts as possible, cheaper, easier, less part inventory, etc. That's why the North American Wranglers also have those plastic parts instead of metal.
Then throw in crash and roll over standards and some things just aren't possible from the factory. At least not at a price anyone could afford.

I do hope that Jeep returns to full gauge packages and an interior that is easier to clean. Please get rid of all the little nooks and crannies that hold dirt and dust and are impossible to clean without Q-Tips. A full time transfer case option comes down to wheelbase and driveshaft length. Not sure the 2 dr could have one but the 4 dr sure could since it has a wheelbase that is 15 inches longer than an XJ.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.
