Better get your spelling sorted too :-) lol

Anyway, wouldnt the internet give you all the info you wanted and more to cover the subject or are you after subjective views? Should make an interesting read though. Good luck & keep us posted.

The Product Lifecycle Management business process that AMC put together in the early 90s for the ZJs was a pretty revolutionary concept at the time. It's now a fundamental principal in just about every large-scale development and production business on the planet.

It doesn't have a whole lot to do with their off-road capabilities, but has probably had more of an impact on the world than solid axles and limited slip differentials.

I think if you define your questions you could interview the forum as a whole and just consider it one entity. People here are pretty helpful. Just tell your teacher you interviewed Mr Jim Forrester .

The personal experiences of what makes jeeps a personal choice is best described by those who own them I would think.

Right. And I'm willing to bet that a Google search will turn up countless videos of people talking about Jeep. Most of the people on this forum could not tell the difference between a Commander and a Commando.
