I definitely don't understand why every vehicle must be dumbed down to cater to Mr and Mrs Mainstream... !
I don't think the little bit of weightof the motors is really going to add that much weight.
You don't understand why they are adding features to a vechicle. They do this so that it increases sales. A hard core no A/C, no top, no door jeeper is a minority. When I first got my YJ I made fun of the guys with hard top and A/C and all those "creature comfots" But what have I done? Hard top, yep, A/C? Just got the system ready to install this spring. I still leave my doors off for most of the spring, summer and fall. Will I when the twins are old enough to ride? No, probably not for safety reasons. I think that DC built a wrangler that suits both worlds and at the same time willincrease sales and guarantee to contiuned popularity of the model. If you look at the pluses that they have added they out weigh the negatives. Longer wheel base, wider wheel base. hard top with removable panels in genious, easier to remove by yourself and easier to store. Everyone freaked out when that came out.
The plastic fenders, the guys that remove thiers anyhow will love the fact that you can take these off without a lot of serios cutting. So for DC to built a wrangler that everyone will be happy with is impossible. It is what it is, if you don't like it just keep what ya got. For them to add power windows who really cares, I have seen some guys on the forum adding power windows to their TJ's and adding heated seats. Not for me but if it suits them, fine. From what I have read the new wrangler is more capable, with a more powerful power plant and it keeps the wrangler "look" and feel.
I think it is unfair to say that this one time I had this pile that I had 35 window regulators in I will never buy that thing it it has power windows. Sounds to me there was something else going on their killing regulators. oh well I like it.
