I can get the sound at about 1/2 pedal throw on the clutch. The machinery in the clutch area just seems loose.

Thank you for your time on this. Rich
I know exactly what noise you're taling about. I've reproduced it myself. We're currently working on the issue. Keep in touch with your dealer for updates.

I think it got missed...

Other than adjusting your steering wheel, trac bar, and your toe in, is there any thing else that needs to be done alignment wise to the front end of a tj after installing a lift?

And now serious question that came to my mind. Not 100% wrangler related, but still- how is the design process in Jeep organized- are there individual engineers groups for each vehicle (wrangler team, grand team etc.), or are you working all on each vehicle?
I hope you get what I mean- shortly saying, do the same people develop all the models, or does each model have its own development team.
My bad on omitting reliability .....

Our product teams actually have both types of engineers. Some teams like Vehicle Development get to focus exclusively on Wranglers and others of us work on several products. I would guess very few engineers, if any, work on all products. Thanks for asking.

I need a good ground plane for Ham Radio Antenna...it appears the only place I can get a decent ground and some antenna height would be perhaps the rear spare tire carrier. Is there a way to snake a wire through that door without drilling holes....or can you recommend another location?

There is not a 100% answer to your question. Yes, there is a group of folks that work only on the Wrangler, Grand, Liberty, etc. However, when it comes to powertrain, electronics and several other specific components, all of the teams share information.

Have a full roll cage built in to every model.

The paint on my 05 is horrible, for as much as these cost new can you spend a little more for some tougher paint on. (many have complained about this on the newer models)

Some of these might have been addressed in the JK and I applaud you for that.

I love my LJ, so glad to have the extra room and towing. Thanks again for your time designing our jeeps and the time answering our questions on here.
<-- not while your designing. (probably how that shovel got over looked)


Most of these are what we would like as-well. We need more input from the buyers to make this happen in the future.

I believe all the demisions and design are the same between the 88 and the 87. The seller said that the headers will not fit. Do you guys know if they will fit? Thanks you very much!!
Hello! Thanks for the question- We can't think any reason the 88 header should not work on the your 87. Both of these were the cast iron manifold for the 258 engine. LJ

How do we exactly get input to you other than now? I always feel like an email with a suggestion just gets thrown away.

What about a complete drivetrain from a TJ with AX15? Would I then have differential issues?

33 inch ties will not fit without a lift (you will rub during articulation) and the Rubicon has no additional suspension lift but larger tires compared to the X.

Yes.. its a computer that measures deceleration. And taking anything off will affect the response.

We don't want you to do this really . .

Well, this would work too....the TJ 4.0L isn't rated at much more power than the YJ 4.0L. All depends on how you drive it too.....
