You are think too small of scale.... how do your predict your global supply chain? Some of these parts have lead times over 30 days... to many variables would stop the line from functioning more often than it already does (18" tire option shortage)

Package = better forecasting.

Everything is about "just in time" delivery.... if everything was free flow, can't even imagine!

I don't want to add anything. I want to delete the sunroof. Jeep used to have a delete sunroof code. Other manufacturers still have it.

Save a buck, lose a customer. I need the headroom.

Don't get me wrong.... I agree with you about the headroom thing.
Also the savings are at least in part passed onto the customer.
I will take a moment here and look at the packages so I understand better.

If by computer, you mean my brain, then yes, but no, if it was run by a computer/robot, then I wouldn't have a job. No computer... that is my responsibility.

No problem.

I *do* have a computer that *helps* me, but it's 95% worthless, and usually very very late. I know my job.

Hey, you say it's uncomfortable, it's uncomfortable.. Period. No discussion.

But my Ram has the same sunroof, and being 6'1 I still have plenty of headroom. Now you may be significantly taller than me, but honestly that'd have to mean at least 6'5 or taller for it to make a difference. Sunroof or not..

But more importantly, you should consider this with the Jeep, bc I know for a fact that it has much less than my Ram. I too went from Jeep to Ram, and like I said, seats are better in the Jeep, but overall comfort (for me) goes to the Ram.

I am not talking about a robot that puts a car together. I am talking about the computer that sends the parts to the assembly line.

What I am asking is not that difficult. Just DON'T install the sunroof.

I don't even care about saving the $1000 added to the Lux II package for the sunroof. I just want the headroom. All I am asking of Jeep is, "DON'T install the sunroof.

Good one. That would give me more than an 2 feet extra.

However, it would also give me bugs, rain, and/or snow in my face. I have also had skin cancer, so I cannot have the sun shining on me when I drive.
