Re: 2011 Chicago Auto Show Jeep display. Lots of pics

Thanks for all the great photos. I'll be going to the Toronto Auto show on Friday but I doubt Jeep will have such a large display here.
I'm hoping to see a Summit in person.

Sweet Jeep display. My WK2 Limited is my first Jeep and I'm in LOVE with it.

ALSO...LOVE the Z06! I have an '02 Z06, motor and paint completely done-up.

Yeah its for sure worth it mainly going up and down the hill. Very impressive and when your in the Jeep it feels much more intense then how the pictures make it look to be. Only thing that sucks about the Jeep ride is you have to register your info into a computer system while your in line and its pretty intensive. Full name, email, addy, everything. I thought it was a bit ridiculous I assume its just a way for them to get your info so they can send you a bunch of crap. You'll see what I mean when you do it. But regardless, its worth it and the line wasnt too bad during the weekday.

I dont have a great picture of it but to give you an idea here is a picture I took from the Chrysler 300. If you notice the screen is enormous and its fully integrated unlike the double din unit in the Jeeps. This picture doesnt show much since the screen is blank, but this unit controlled everything including climate control and the interface was very good. I dont think it does anything the Jeep doesnt already do but its kind of nice to have a more integrated system instead of your typical car that has a radio mounted in place and a climate control mounted under that. Either way the Jeep is amazing, but I just wish that one of the most expensive cars in the Chrysler line could have received the same treatment.
Several Chrysler products had this system as well as some Dodge cars.

We had an auto show in Phoenix last November - a similar compound for the Jeep with the obstacle course. They had 5 Rubicons and one JGC. So we signed up and let people pass us in line until we'd locked onto the JGC.

That demo was what clinched the idea of getting a new JGC for me. I'd been looking at several options, including putting a bunch of $$ into my 98 JGC, but from the demo on, my course was set for the WK2.

By the way - we have not been bombarded with stuff from Jeep, so don't fear to sign up and do the loop if you are at a show.

That display looks a lot better than the 730. i'll look around online and see if i can find some sort of demo. might be on youtube.
i hope the jeep's console would be the same size as this display should an owner choose to replace the 730 with this one in the future.

I ordered the Mineral gray summit and I love all the "overdone" chrome and Saddle dash. I also love the polished 20's. Cant wait!!
