Thank You Milous.....

That just about makes up my mind. A GC,V6,4X4,White Gold, Black Interior.
I stoped at a Chrysler/Jeep dealer to see the White Gold Paint in person, Thats my color but a dodge on the lot in Silver Steel Metallic was a real looker with the sun shining on it.....

Re: Flipper Glass in 2011

Interesting, that picture of power liftgate seems to show the wiper on the door, not in the glass like in the other pix. Must've been some prototype shots.

Of course this then introduces the question of how much the lift gate is going to interfere with roof rack accessories. Right now the WK lift gate just BARELY clears the rear edge of bike rails and a storage box. The new antenna position certainly will. If it ain't one thing, it's another...

I really like the WK flipper, and use it all the time, as others have said, it's usefull if you're unsure if your load has moved rearward, or if you just want access to your cooler. The flipper on the current WK really is a good feature.
And no, an electric tailgate lifter goes nowhere near replacing the quick access that the lift galss allowed.
Strike TWO for me! The designers really should ask current enthusiest owners more questions!
fully agree!!!


awesome milous!!!

Re: Flipper Glass in 2011

Benno, I'd guess that it's an either everyone has it or not option (like it is now). The only thing (judging by the pic) that would not allow for it is the location of the rear wiper.... I don't think think they'd have two different rear wiper locations for different trims.
