I just found out that a replacement system is in the works, I saw it listed in some 2012 model year documents. It's *possible* that they could add it to the WK later in the '11 model year, but it is definitely on the 2012 WK schedule.

Chrome shortage. With all the new chrome exterior and interior trim pieces all of the allocation was used up by the time they got to the hooks .

That is really good Milous,because if they will implement this feature now,or in the 2012 model I will wait for it,then this will be the perfect jeep for me,to go from my 1995 orvis edition to this 2011 or 12 fully loaded jeep,will save me alot of money instead of buying that mercedes benz gl suv which lack some of the luxury feature on the new jeep and is way over priced ,right here in Canada.

Re: Anything they left out?

im baffled at the fact of no LED tailights when they went this far to make this into the premium/luxury market...an electronic e-brake would be fitting as well...seriously the foot operated one is a flashback to the 70s and gives a mini-van feel...also is it me or is there still a manual shift option ( + - ) on the new ones...the recent pics ive seen, i cant seem to make it out while there it is clearly there on the pre-prod pics....cmon jeep

I agree it should have had LED taillights and an electric parking break. The manual shift is still there, it's just hard to notice in the recent photos due to the angle of the shot and lighting. I had to zoom in and put my face to the computer screen to spot graphics on the shifter bezel.

Re: Anything they left out?

It appears that there is no radio tuning knob. If not, it needs one.

Re: Anything they left out?

Here is a decent picture, click it to zoom in. If this is in fact manual shift, why is it a side to side, not up and down? Up/Down makes much more sense. Or am I missing something?

LED lights? Who cares, this car has twice as much as ANY SUV out there. You cannot build an SUV with all of the features Jeep has... not from Lexus, BMW, Audi, Land Rover, etc... so I can live without them for now.
