Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us I cannot think of another auto manufacturer that has done this, at least that none that I have had the pleasure of joining.

I own a 2002 TJ and I am interested in the new wranglers but I have been dissapointed in the new motor. It has been said that the 2011 JK's will have a new engine 3.4ltr. This engine is said to have more horse power and torque delivered at lower RPM's.

My question is: Do you have any new information you can pass on about the motor and is this motor being developed directly for the JK.

(Read: Is this motor going to make the JK's appealing to those with the tried and true 4.0)?

I was thinking that I would manually shift the transmission a lot less if I was to select 1st and 2nd then just keeping it in D. If I could shift less manually than D would there be any beneficial affect, or should I just go with the transmission cooler?

Did a dealer install the uconnect system? If not, the dealer must update the vehicle software before the system will work properly. The dealer must add sales code RSP to the vehicle configuration and then update the vehicle with the Chrysler Scan tool.

The bike carrier is only used every once in a while. if you do go up the 37lbs, tailgate life will depend on use - rough roads, gate slam - 1once a week or 5 times a day? ETC. Thanks,

Can you tell me why a dealer (supposedly) needs to update the JK computer/firmware/electronics/whatever when a 7-pin Mopar trailer wiring harness is added? What exactly does this "update" really do?

As you know we do not offer a Diesel in a Wrangler in the domestic market and can't discuss future product plans

is there any reason that you can not put an auto in the JK with more gear ratios? Will it not fit, I would think this would help with both power and economy....

oh yeah, please build a diesel....

I have a 03 Sahara and I'm putting selectable lockers in it. My instrument panel shows the front lock and rear lock at the top right but since I don't have the rubicon I don't have the wiring harness so I think I'm SOL. Do you know how I'd be able to light up each one without a harness? Possibly getting 12v to the lights back there somehow? Any ideas? I want a real clean look like from factory. Thanks!

Here's the back side of it. I'm thinking I'll have to take it apart but I'm not sure if that will screw things up or not.
