Check the Mopar sub systems.. they work well at adding some "kick"

How much extra would you spend to get upgraded sound ?

Size Challenge in Jeeps

I am a svelt 6'4" 255 that struggles to be fit in my wife's 2005 Liberty CRD, just a little more seat room (seat and shoulders) and couple more inches of seat adjustment for legroom would be helpful for us normal size folks.

I would say somewhere in the middle would be great, better mpg would help nowadays but not so much as to take away the power/fun of owning one.

Current power levels are adequate, but a diesel should be able to give those numbers with better economy. Considering the price of diesel these days, the economy would have to be a 30% increase of over the gas version for it to make economic sense.

Interesting you say that... Mopar Performance just revealed a concept diesel TJ project in Moab on Wednesday. The idea is to make a kit to swap a 2.8L diesel into a 1997-2006 Wrangler. Stay tuned for more details!

There was some speculation that said Jeep is planning to offer diesel conversion kit for Jeeps. Is there any truth to that? Could you shine some light on this matter?

Thanks,

No comment on that future stuff guys -

But, a functioning "One Off" prototype was shown at the Easter Jeep Safari last week in Moab. I suspect you will read some about this CONCEPT idea in the 4 x 4 magazines in the near future.

And yea, it rocked Off Road . . .

I'd like to see engine upgrades available for older Jeeps. Not just the diesels everyone's been talking about, but whatever kind of alternatives you guys have been considering. When the day comes that we see hybrid or hydrogen Jeeps, I'd like to see retrofit kits available for existing Jeep products.

I don't know about this diesel trend...I'm not sure why everyone wants this with diesel being $.70 higher than gas per gallon...

...but please build a Jeep pick up truck like the Gladiator concept ....I'm cannot understand why there isn't one being build...it seems like a no brainer....I would be at the dealership as soon as it is released reserving mine....and I think many others would also do the same.

So - diesel engines will not be a cheap option -

Have to ask - how much would you pay ?

what about a V8 wrangler? I know the trend right now is diesel and would love to have one but a V8 would also peak my interest as well.

What I'd like to see....

I'd like to see you build a Wrangler style pick-up like the Scrambler or AEV Brute. Although the Brute looses flexibility due to it's separate bed design. A diesel would be a plus in this, also. You had one at Camp Jeep last year, called a JK I believe.

We'll try to keep that in mind....we sometimes have to balance minimum rear leg room with the front seat all the way back. Thanks for the comment!
