I’d pay for a smaller key fob. Finally don’t have to stick it in the dash and they give us a brick!?!?
How about a wrap for the hard top? Any color you want....make it tan to match the tan soft top they may never ship.
I hope bartact adds more options for the JL’s or someone else learns to build a seat cover as good as theirs.
Do
#1: The home phone number of the person at Jeep who decided not to make the auto-down windows not auto UP too!
#2. A fix for the lack of auto down windows (that exist on other Jeep vehicles)
#3 Haynes manual competitor that releases JL manual in January of 2019 (vs Haynes which is looking like 2020)
#4 hub centric wheels other than what AEV will do.
#5 tires that actually measure the size they say they are. 35s are really 34s.
#6 a 3/4 in lift bracket for the Maximus roof rack so you can easily attach a RTT bracket.


Wait......#1 is not a thing to be made.....but....
Totally agree with #1, I wonder why they didnt make it with auto up??

I wonder if it had something to do with safety, would need some kind of sensor in case hands or something is in the way of closing. What are some cars that have the auto up windows just curious.

How about this, and it really applies to any vehicle with nav: how about an override for the “can’t punch in an address while moving” malarchy if there’s a passenger in the dig-dang front passenger seat? The car knows someone is there...

Liability. The driver could still be doing it. Ok. Fine.

Solutions: a) sensors in the passenger seat detect subtle changes in positioning whilst inputting data and will only do so if those changes are present or b) the direction of readability of the nav screen itself shifts to the right (imagine a polarized lens or those horrible privacy screens on some computers) so that ONLY the front passenger can see and, presumably, only that person could be using it to input data.

Screw it, just use your phone.

Auto up windows have been around for awhile. They are on other Jeep branded vehicles. Just not the Wrangler. The hardware exists.

A nav system for the 7 inch uconnect. Where I drive their are many large dead spots of no cell service. Google maps does not work in these locations.
Mopar needs to figure out how to make this a reality. Parkin' the car like a boss:dance:

How about a rack or bracket that would hold the doors after you take them off. Say you’re out on a trail, 50 miles from home and you’d love to take the doors off but have no place to put or carry them.
It might need to be an adjunct to a roof rack just for space requirements.
Oohh like this one

Clear windshield protectors, so your windshield isn’t easily broken by rocks. You apply it like a screen protector.
They have this already. Here is just one example. https://clearplex.com/ Google windshield protective film for more examples.

How about:
  1. Ground wire in the AUX wire harness so you don't have to perform major surgery to get to lug
  2. Ability to upload / download .gpx tracks onto Nav system. after all, aren't you supposed to take your jeep on trails???
  3. Power connectors above driver's seat for CB mount, dash cams, etc.
  4. Standard Molle grid on the tailgate
  5. Welds that don't fail and/or rust!

The Tazer JL will help with this. I, er my passenger can input anything in gps while driving.

Spare tire mounted racks for bicycles, surf, etc....taking into consideration the camera position. Been waiting forever and no one seems to make this yet. Not hitch mounted....Spare tire mounted racks so that you can fully open back door an gain access to rear cargo.
