Re: Anything they left out?

Makes my 2004 feel really dated then... I guess you guys are used to the side to side action. I'm used to the push-to-the-side to engage manual shift action, but I guess I'll adapt when I get the 2011.

Does the WK2 have that many features you can't get from these brands? I can't really think of too many other than Quadralift, QuadraDrive the two big ones.

No, not new features. But try getting an SUV with remote start & push button start... hard to find, usually you get one or the other. Then add panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats, heated steering wheel, 30G audio system, reclining back seats, storage, flipper glass... yadda yadda yadda. It's pretty impressive, and that's not even getting into quadralift/drive.

I've been building other brands' SUVs for a few months and it's impossible to find one this loaded. They really did put some thought into this... that's all I was saying.

I wasn't saying you were wrong, I haven't been building any of the other models, but had kind of assumed they would have some of those features, but I guess getting them all in one is more difficult than I thought.

Audi/VW intoroduced their adjustabe air suspension systems a decade ago and Land Rover nearly two.

Jeep has actually "caught up" with the competition. Their greatest advantage is pricing, not tech advancement or features. If the build quality is there, this vehicle could save the company. Lots of potential.

My 2001 Audi Allroad had it, as does my wife's 2004 RX330. On her car that's the only serious problem it's had, and was covered under warranty.

The all around cameras for birds eye view in the GPS screen like what infinity has would be cool.

Re: Anything they left out?

There's a cam in each side mirror and in front and rear of vehicle so when your in reverse it crops the image from each cam together to give it a birds eye view of all around the vehicle.

Yeah I've seen this on an Infiniti EX35? I believe. That is actually much more useful that backup cameras and parking sensors.

Also front parking sensors are retarded...if you can't see over the dash you probably should find something smaller to drive.

10-1 LED taillamps come in a mid-cycle refresh.

And why didn't they use the Ram-tune for the overland, just to differentiate it a little more.

I actually like that they all have plastic trim for the lips. 1 day in the body shop will make yours really stand out.

I don't much care about inovation I just want it to have all the features I want, and I want them all to work. Very difficult to find a truck that leaves virtually nothing out.
