I would like to see the side approach lights in the side mirrors replicated on the front dash. A flashing yellow triangle next to each turn signal light would be a nice fore-warning for any lane change that would be in the normal forward field of vision. Only the side mirror lights flash (no chime) if the turn signal is not engaged. Small convenience. I live in SoCal and freeway driving is dicey to say the least.

A couple more that I would like:
1) Locking hood from the factory
2) Add a floor-mounted headlight high beam/dimmer switch! Still keep the one on the stalk on the steering column, just bring back the floor switch as well so we have both options. It will be interesting to see the response on this one. Probably a lot of you have no idea what I am referring to.

I already quoted you once on this point, but I found something I put away. This is an engineering drawing from September 2006, a couple of months after JK production started. They gave me a copy of it because I'd suggested the option in an internal suggestion box.
For some reason(s) they never got it produced.

Only if they move the starter switch to the floor too. :)

I have a wish list
But I would like Jeep to do more to check all the gaps and problems
I want 2020 closer to perfection and then to move towards the future because the challenge will be difficult especially in North America.

- an OEM 17x8 or 17x8.5" that doesn't stick out too far.
- 2-door sky one-touch top
- more aggressive tune on the 8-speed auto

Two words.

Half Doors

I really want a factory Half Door option with Hard uppers that match the Hard Top.

But alas such will fall on deaf ears. Just like the people asking for a V8 ever since the YJ.

As a thousand yard Longshot like the ones above. Redo the center controls move axle and sway bar bits back where they were on the JK and put in the dial-a-gear from the ram for a shifter.

You might actually get that Manual on a 2.0 eventually, since they've made the 2.0 ESS without the BSG as an option for next year.

I enjoyed the floor-triggered high beams on Fords '80-91. Also made the turn signal stalk not so much of a complicated $500 part ;)

Being able to select your gear via the manual mode on the auto is a huge plus for me. Dial-a-gear is more for on road only driving and not what the jeep is mostly intended for, IMO.

'15 4R but hoping for a JLU
My Wish List:

  • A real cold-weather package. My 4Runner has electric heating elements in the windshield that heat the area under the wipers and up along the driver's side edge of the windshield (where snow/ice accumlate from the wipers). Ice build up on the windshield (particularly when driving in freezing rain) is a big safety issue up here in the snowbelt area of the country. Heated LED lights too (again, an issue up here in snow country).

  • Options to have the Rubicon "look" on the Sport S model (Rubicon wheels/tires, steel bumpers, hood, and front grill). I love the look of the Rubicon but don't really have a need for the off-road abilities of the Rubicon for most of my driving. (Yes, I know about the MOAB but it would be great to get this type of look in the lower $40k-range, not $55k the MOAB commanded.)

  • I love the Altitude Sport S model but hate the wheels (personal preference, no offense). I'd love the ability to add Rubicon stock wheels/tires to a Sport S Altitude. Offer the Altitude in Bikini too!

  • Euro-stlye LED taillights with an amber turn signals. I think this is a safety issue that Jeep could easily add to US-spec JL's.

  • It'll never happen but the 2.0 and/or the diesel to have the 6-speed manual. I want more torque with a manual than the 3.6 offers.

  • Better head rests and a smaller key fob.

  • The 8.4" screen and LED headlights/tailights available on the Sport S
