The axle ratio on all V6 applications is 3.07:1 and V8 3.45:1. With the higher torque/HP on the V6 coupled with the A580, we utilize the 3:07 ratio to maximize FE. This ratio is independent of off-road package.

Have the UCA balljoints been beefed up for 2011?

Do you think the air susp system will make it harder for aftermarket lifts?

Designed for 30.5 inch tire. That's what we recommend.

Not that we can comment on. Mopar has a nice WiFi option.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

why was the 08+ 4.7 v8 nixed from the line up? I did a swap from the 06 47 to the 08 4.7 and tweaked the engine a little. I wish the 08+ 4.7 was stilll in the line up so I could embarass SRT's in a wk2...LOL. Anyway....qudara-lift overland is in my future! Thanks for an awesome, awesome vehicle!

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Once again Thank you!!

I don't have a question right now, but I do appriciate all your quick responces to the ones posted.


This chat has just helped me decide on the wk2 over the 08 SRT I was looking at. It's the saddle interior that really got me.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

I hope I'm not pestering you engineers but if you could please let us know when the RHR radio would be available for order, I'd be forever grateful.

Thanks again for taking time out of your busy schedules and having this chat with us today.

The glass mounted blade performs better in wipe coverage and system reliability. With the steeper glass slope, this allowed us to provide almost 180 degree wipe and tighter package to the spoiler. We also maintained the flipper glass feature for ease of use without motor/blade interlocks.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Any information about the availability of the 20" chrome clad wheel option. When will it be available for order and on which models?
