Three quick questions I couldnt find answers to

Searched and searched but could not find anything.

#1 - Does the 4dr have the baby seat anchors (LATCH system) between the cushions?

#2 - Side impact. According to jeep.com, it states that not only did it receive a 5 star frontal collision rating, but it received a 5 star side impact rating as well. Could that be a typo? Check the left menu http://www.jeep.com/en/2007/wrangler...wards_reviews/

#3 - Can you order the power locks/door package on the X? According to the website it doesnt state that you can, the salesman said it were possible though. Not really sure if he knew what he was legit or not because he kept insisting that the wrangler had the tried and true 4.0L


Thanks!

Not sure about the first two questions, but my 2dr X has the Power Convenience Group.

On the Jeep website, after you have chosen to build a 2008 wrangler unlimited X, picked 4x4 and package S, at the bottom of the options list there is a option to (change features/options) click on that. You will be able to choose power convenience group.

Thanks!
#1 - Don't know. If I had to guess, I'd say probably not. But then again I could be wrong. That is why, after all, it's called a "guess".

#2 - Nope. There's no mistake. The JK is TOUGH. But even though it is a Jeep, don't be stupid with it.

#3 - Yes.

You're welcome!

What color speaks to your heart and soul?

Another thing, don't worry about the acceleration. The engine has a break in period around 750ish miles where it will loosen up and allow more throttle response.

I think the color will pick you...

Buying a Jeep is like picking a dog at the pound... the right one kinda just jumps out and picks you....

Yes to reconfirm #1, I strapped my daughter's car seat (LATCH) in the day I first took it overnight. 2008 X 4-Dr. And it did have side airbags and the power group.

Q#1. A third confirmation. I have had 3 carseats in the back for short periods. 1 infant seat, a front facing seat and a booster all at the same time. This is not recommended by me as you will get all 3 screaming at the same time causing the driver to go nuts. Especially if there is no spouse in the pass seat to deal with it!

The Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited did NOT get 5 stars for side. Only front. It may be a tough vehicle but those doors are thin and there are no reenforcment bars which are required to acheive five stars. The jeep site wording is (I'm sure intentionally) missleading.

According to the text, it's only front impact. The menu option says side, but the text only refers to front. JK's haven't ever had a side-impact rating that I've seen, probably because Jeep never submitted them for it.
