Yes - We sure have and it rocks in the snow (I actually just spent five minutes trying to paste in some cool pictures...didn't work). In "snow" mode it is very ballanced and tracks like a scribe. In "Sport" mode you can pitch the Jeep sideways and really have fun.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

The 8-speed box appears to be some 15 or some months away. In the interim, any chance of tweaking the first couple of gear ratios in the existing 5-speed to get the GC off the line more briskly?

Damn, too late, but heaps o' thanks for taking the time to share your valued knowledge with us.

1. Empty 2. Bracket and one electronic box with connectors/cables 3. Bracket and three or four electronic boxes with connectors/cables.

What are these various configurations? What additional measures were taken to make these undercarriage compartments water tight? Are these compartments a carry-over from the Mercedes underpinnings?

Thanks for all the great responses!!
Regarding the Mercedes question, the front floor system and underseat compartments are very similar. We also design the floor to seal from underbody water and the lids for simple spills.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Ok guys...just talked to the engineering group and they are ecstatic at the reception here and the passion of our site and members! There will be more chats! Hopefully maybe the first quarter of the year. A lot of you guys have new 2011's on order and the questions will come!

Thanks to The Jeep Engineers, Phil Jansen and Nick! Awesome chat!
