Re: Jeep ENGINEERS chat session coming to JG.org

Remember, it's a discussion for grown ups Ducks. And B T C, might be best you make yourself busy elsewhere......


I have a few questions re the WKII and it's future developements. Knowing the answers to these questions will help me know if I will wait for "my spec" WKII. Hopefully the Jeep engineers can answer these future product questions for me!

1. When can we expect a "new" gearbox and what are we to expect?

2. Will the forthcoming SRT be at all light off-road capable, ie, removable lower front spoiler/traction control full off, for light duty beach work that all it's competitiors are capable of (assuming there actually IS an SRT planned for the GC and not just the Magnum)

3. How much of the floorpan does the WKII share with the Mercedes ML? Eg, are the suspension or differential components interchangable?

Re: Jeep ENGINEERS chat session coming to JG.org

they will not answer questions about FUTURE products/options. That is standard with any engineers chat.

Re: Jeep ENGINEERS chat session coming to JG.org

My 3rd question is fine then.

Hmmm, maybe they can answer something really interesting;

1. Who designed the wheels on WKII?
2. Why did you decide on this colour chart?

Note my sarcasm.

Re: Jeep ENGINEERS chat session coming to JG.org

I want to thank them for being apart of making the ZJ. That was a damn good car and I beat the holy hell out of it but yet, the Jeep just kept asking for more.

I wonder if they can answer why Chrysler still put the same old 4/5 speed transmissions in their cars and haven't bumped up to a 6 speed. I know there was a link someone about a new 8 speed but I don't believe it until I see it. Ford has did it and GM is coming around too it.
