Hi. This sounds like a great idea.

One question I have, and I don’t know whether it is appropriate for this event is, a lot of forum members and others have been trying to add proximity locks, passive entry to their vehicles. Could FCA, create an aftermarket package that allows this to be done by dealers?

Thanks!

Cool. Will there be a way to submit questions beforehand to be considered for discussion?

Oh god, this is gonna be a shitshow. Hope they have their moderators and spam bot filters ready. This kind of event rarely attracts the best and the brightest; no, you’ll mostly see pranksters, malcontents, disgruntled former customers, scam artists, and any number of rabble-rousers come out of the woodworks, hell bent on causing chaos and anonymously making a scene. Kinda like when local governments or well-intending non-profits or even large companies open up the naming of some new place or product to public submission and get answers like “Hitlerland” or “Boaty McBoatface.”

Should be fun!

And on further scrutiny, I wouldn’t click that link if I were any of y’all. Go thru FCA’s own website.

Yes, please post them here. We are going to be pulling all of the questions we ask the team from this thread and similar threads across the other various Jeep forums.

Here is my question: The gladiator mojave is looking to attract the go fast desert crowd, yet the engine is the same old 3.6. Any plans or thoughts on adding some power from the factory to deliver that missing element?

We hope it will be fun for all! The link is real, if the admins or anyone needs proof I am happy to submit and verify this is actually coming from the brand, also notice the link starts with FIAT. Also we won't be taking questions live for all of the reasons you mentioned, at least for now. Please reply to the thread with any questions you have ever wanted to ask.

I have a question...Can you ask if they ever thought about designing a hardtop that can be removed in sections, maybe the way a soft top does with the two rear windows pushing up and out of channels within the top to be removed and then the rear lift ..leaving the top as the last. I know it is a pipe dream but would be so much easier to remove and store as well as being able to remove alone and without any aftermarket contraptions.

My question: There seems to be some concern about the longevity of the DPF in the new JL Diesel. It is raising enough concern that it's become a barrier-to-entry for some potential buyers on this forum. Please give us Jeep's thoughts/experiences with this issue during the roundtable.

If you look at every forum out there you will always find a thread in regards to steering in fact you’ll find many threads on the subject. I hope they will address this and not give some canned answer like “when you lift a Jeep you messed it up”. Also the windshield because when the lead designer did TFL you tube video and said it’s cause it’s a straight up and down window that was blowing off the question. I’ve had 2 Jeep’s before my JL for over 7 years and never had an issue, my JL had to get replaced in 2 months.
