Threats? Especially with the Jeeps folks monitoring the blog?

Well if you still feel like talking about it, all I was going to do was report a post had he retorted with another negative comment. I'm no moderator here so there's not much I can do besides that. But if you go back and read what jeepster and I talked about, I would say that the conversation is over.

No, i'm not kidding. I used to do it in my dads old minivan haha. I would be able to whip the van around and drive away just by clicking and unlocking the brake, and then pushing it halfway down while turning and then letting it go....lol


It looked something like this...

Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

I really don't care where the brake is placed. Just I hope it's designed where it doesn't become an obstical for us tall guys to get my left leg/foot around and on the foot rest.

Amen to that. I'm just under 6'4" and am crossing fingers that the 2011 WK2 will have enough headroom, especially as I tend to sit upright, not leaning back. Too some earlier Grand Cherokees have had inadequate headroom, plus an intrusive transmission housing that means driving with the right leg angled uncomfortably leftward. Those two reasons are why we still have our meticulously maintained 1994 Limited. They pretty much got it right the first time.

I don't know how you guys like the current parking brake, it sticks out like a giant cock all the time I never use it anyways

Gee, if you reckon the LH ones are bad, try a RHD version. The footwell design is terrible, forces me to lay my left foot on it's side facing the RH door. Really bad, no useable footrest. REALLY BAD!

Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

I don't mind the parking break being by foot. I believe its partly a result of it being a ML chassis that it's based off of.

They should just make it a little more sleeker like the ones that MBz uses.

Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

If the jeep comes with hill start and decent control then you don't have to worry much about using the "foot brake". I personally like the hand brake myself,always been the norm on the cars Ive driven.
