What Jeep Part do you WISH was made?

If you could have a product, part, or upgrade for your Jeep that wasn't on the market... what would it be? And no, I don't mean physically impossible... like a flux capacitor, or a jet engine, or a mod that gives 30 miles per gallon... but something within the realm of reality.


Personally, I want a much lighter weight hard top... possibly carbon fiber if it didn't make my TJ look like a tuner.

Also, and I know this is rumored to be on the '07's - a hard top that is made up of several pieces so you can take off some panels but leave others... make it easier to remove as well.


What do you want?

An all around independent suspension system that flexes like and has the durability of a solid axle

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Not too hard, find an old YJ and swap in a deisel. Use the European or Australian spec deisel engine they use overseas in TJ's. Or get a CRD since the other diesel might not be emissions legal here in the US. You could get a Land Rover Tdi or a 2.8l PowerStroke

A time machine so I/we could go back in time and sterilize the parents of the $#@!$% who gave us the wonderful torx bolts!

To make the above post realistic:

A hex bolt kit for my jeep, so I won't have to buy the bolts one type at a time.

If there would be interest in that I could probably get a kit put together.

Give me a rundown on all the bolts you'd want in the kit.

a reliable cupholder for the earlier xj's, not like the stupid one that falls apart and breaks when you accidetally kick it then all your change and soda goes all over the bleepin' floor!

( i know the aftermarket has some center console mount thing, but it wouldn't pass inspection because it was "in the way of the e-brake")

97 xj
44 front, detroit, alloyed
60 rear, detroit, 35 spline alloyed
35" beadlocked km2's
3" midarmed
more bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at
