You guys think I'm nuts, eh? Certifiable? One log short of a cord? It would certainly explain things.

Cheers all, including the New Kids. I'm just jealous.

Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

Hey Moose,

You had me at "Old..."

Anytime you speak, I listen... cause I know it's always gonna be good!

No, you are not nuts...

Maybe you're wound-up a little differently... Like a bad clockspring!

But, always love to hear & see what you've got to post!

You were spot-on with that rant to make me laugh & I applaud it!!

Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

Moosehead, TYVM; I loved your rant.

I chose, this month, a '13 rather than a '14, as I really don't like the looks of the frontend of the '14. I also drove a '14 V6 and didn't like the way the manual shifter toggles, but maybe I would have gotten used to that.



New tires and wheels on the way.

Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

Moose that was a very articulate rant and I would like to congratulate you for saying what some were afraid to say.

Chrysler knows it has a decent vehicle on its hands and that the 11-13 will possibly do well in the pre-owned market as well.

The drastic change of the 2014 is to keep up it's momentum in the market as Jeep was the last one in the SUV market to offer 4 wheel independent suspension and some other goodies.

Right now the 2011 may feel a little old in the shadow of the 2014 but I don't think the 14 is as well thought out as the 2011 do I am thinking a 2016 would be the best upgrade for as they may do a better job of packaging everything, that is unless they botch the styling like they did on the 2014 Cherokee.

Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

Great post! Loved it!!

So how long does everything think the 14 will remain the same platform? The previous WK2 made it 3 years (11-13) with little to no changes. How long do you think the 14 will last before another redesign?

I see some mentioning 2016, why so? Is there already talk of new changes to come in 2016?

Was just curious as to what the Future of Jeep was bringing.
