However, this is susceptible to problems when lifting the vehicles. The slip-joint issue is resolved with a double cardon on the TC side, from what I understand. Now, this issue seems to replace the old slip-joint problem of the past.

Why does jeep feel the need to switch up OEM part numbers? In all honesty, this makes no logical sense. You have to put a different number on the part, you have to update all of the FSM's, all of the online databases, etc.

Thanks,
Charlie

True but in our circles when putting them to the test they tend to fail more often than the U-jointed style, is there a posibility of having an upgrade for future models at the time of purchase.

edit* I have wanted a Wrangler for many years, but you know, 2 doors is just not enough. So good job on that (:

The heated seats from Check Corp should be standard on Sahara by the way (:

I would second the above question on towing capacity v. Liberty.

How is it possible that this thing does not get better in city mileage than my old, crappy, 15 year old Isuzu Trooper with the even more crappy (and infamous) GM 2.8L V6 engine in it? I have the JK Sahara with auto in it by the way.

How much can I trust the rain gutters on the hard top? Can I put a ski rack or something like that on there without worrying about breaking those rain gutters?

You're welcome for the 4-door BTW!

But it scratches so easily !! you just run your nail on it a little bit and its going to scratch !!

Mine is already full of scratches and I only have 3000km on it.


Thanks, Frank

We knew that the new hard top would be popular and its been even more popular. There have been some minor delays due to the high demand but please be patient - - we are catching up. You won't be disappointed I think. Thank-you !

If you can pick your diff gearing, why not the yolk & drive shaft joint style as well.

Also what is the wheel to wheel mounting surface of JK axels?
Wheel to wheel mounting surface of JK axles is 65.4 inches.

Since the vehicle was made wider, the ends of the axles are farther out so we wanted to upgrade to a larger/stronger bolt pattern.

Is there any chance that the JK will be getting the more powerful 4.0L V6 to go along with the 3.8L?

Thanks for fielding questions from the board,

I have one question I would like to toss out. Will there ever be a full size jeep (pickup or SUV) similar to the Rescue concept? 3/4 ton with a diesel would be a great tow rig/daily driver for alot of us
