Jeep engineers chat on 9/8/2010 at 6pm

ok guys...this is huge opportunity to get the questions you have about the 2011 Grand Cherokee answered. One thing....they WILL NOT answer any questions about future products etc. Please dont waste your time.

Phil Jansen the head engineer of the 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 will be leading the chat. Phil has been with ChryCo for many, many moons and worked on every Grand Cherokee platform to date....ZJ, WJ, WK and now the WK2.
This is HUGE opportunity for our members and our community here at JeepGarage.org
So...be working on some good questions to ask Phil!

Re: Jeep engineers chat on 9/8/2010 at 6pm

Hmmmm my question is

"How does a Canadian go about disabling their DRL's such that they don't need to stealership to do it"

LOL

Re: Jeep engineers chat on 9/8/2010 at 6pm

I'd want to know why you'd want to do that if it is illegal to do so in many areas of Canada?

For the engineers:
Why no front LSD when it was available last year; Do they find the brake application for the front as competent as an LSD would be; Why the taller 3.09 axles when the Off-Road group is optioned; and, in testing for "Trail Rated", was there any time that they felt the full independent suspension was less robust than the previous iterations with solid axle(s).
